- Enterprise IT gets more choices. Credible, comprehensive cloud-native IAM will put serious pressure on the classic on-premises suites, increasing choice for enterprises bitten by the SaaS bug.
- LDAP’s hold on IT begins to weaken. LDAP as the standard directory interface just became “legacy,” though it won’t be disappearing anytime soon. While SCIM is no more than an 80/20 replacement at the moment, it gains significant momentum from salesforce.com’s backing. (Hey, wasn’t LDAP the 80/20 point for X.500?)
