I'm pleased to announce that Dinesh Jain has just published "Delegated Administration with IBM Security Identity Manager" on developerWorks.
From the white paper's introduction:
Organizations that work with several business partners, vendors, and contractors need a delegated user administration model for identity management tasks for the following reasons:
- Employees and account administration requirements vary from one business partner to another. For example, each business partner and vendor has their own unique set of user roles.
- Work load increases on an Identity Manager administrator who manages multiple business partners along with the parent organization employees.
This paper provides in-depth details about implementing delegated administration of identity management tasks for a business partner organization with IBM Security Identity Manager.
