Subject: Federated Identity User Group Meeting - Opened up to vendors!
Please note the change in the invitation for the Federated Identity User's Group below. Due to the large amount of Vendor responses and interest we have made the decision to open the Federated Identity User Group up to all who have been involved in (or are close to) implementation. Please keep in mind the goals of the User Group Meeting are to: - Allow those of you who are actively implementing SAML and Liberty to get your questions heard and discussed, including but not limited to: - What you are doing with SAML and Liberty - Business issues you are trying to solve - Challenges you've faced - Share best practices for Federated identity implementations with other end users - Present Use Cases Updated Invitation Dear Federated Identity User: We invite you to join GM and Boeing in the first federated identity user group meeting.
