This post is for those in the trenches of Identity and Access Management and it’s a shout out to a great partner, Software IDM. How many of you have looked at the operations logs in Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM) and tried to determine what changes happened to a particular account over the past week? How many of you have tried to build that picture of what a particular account looked like at 6pm, 2pm, 10am, 8am or even one week ago? The MIM Synchronizations logs may show when a change occurred but it still only shows you the current state of the object. What if you had a tool that could easily provide a display or excel report of what an account looked like at any given time you want? What if you had a tool that could give you a side-by-side view of connector spaces and the metaverse? That is where the Panel Platform tool from SoftwareIDM comes in. It’s an awesome tool for monitoring the synchronization services and running task scheduler. Be sure to check out and download the Sync Panel Express. Special thanks to Brian Burns of New Signature for building our relationship with SoftwareIDM.
