You are right Alwin! This is a specialized area and you need special skills or rather acquire special skills to get into identity management. I am really surprised and pleased to see someone interested in this area. Because I am working in this domain for more than 1 yr now� Its interesting but takes time to understand important terminologies, market players, trends, design patterns, solutions, common problems area, and standards into identity management. After 1 yr. I feel I understand only 30-40% of it� rather lesser than that, cause I am working with just Identity product, Sun Access Manager. And have basic understanding of Oracle Identity Management.
The big market players in this domain are Netegrity and Oblix � even IBM Tivoli Access Manager, Have not worked on them though�
Anyways, do you have any initial exp. in this domain? Or you are just interested to venture into it? If you have any exp. and interested in doing some interesting work, , can you fwd ur resume? if there r any openings, we can consider you�.
