Tech Ex 2019 in New Orleans
- Please plan to sign up for and attend FIM4R at TechEx (Sunday before TechEx) if possible https://fim4r.org/events/
- Tom Jordan will lead the CACTI meeting at Tech Ex. ChrisP will not be at TechEx.
- The three points of reflection:
- Is the ratio of time spent aligning to time spent taking action, right? What does it need to be over the next year or two?
- Do we have the right kinds of voices, perspectives in the group?
- How can we better utilize your time, expertise?
Summary of common themes sent to Jessica (Jessica)
- Responses to Kevin's Request:
- Members are enjoying being part of CACTI, and respect the breadth and expertise represented by the CACTI membership
- Things to potentially improve CACTI going forward include getting a better understanding of specifically where Kevin needs advice from CACTI
- More direction and urgency and focused efforts would be helpful
- Kevin stated that he has absorbed the feedback that CACTI may desire more direction from him
- There has always been a balance between what Internet2 and InCommon sees as needs and what the community sees as needs/priorities. There has usually been a good blend of ideas, in an environment where we can’t afford many wrong turns/bad investments.
- It’s easier to maintain the balance if Internet2 staff/management are somewhat hesitant, less heavy handed, and primarily listen to the community’s priorities.
- Inputs from PAG, CACTI, InCommon TAC etc. helps Internet2/InCommon management decide how to apportion resources.
Discussion on CACTI moving forward
- Software as a service and cloud computing are key to the new environment and provide important challenges
- Good story around the Campus Success Program / Collaboration Success Program.
- Defining a workplan could be helpful, want to complement other ongoing activities.
- FIM4R recommendations prioritization, followup, and monitoring would be useful
- Issues around IDP as a Service are important, and the challenge of profiles and SAML2int
- Other key topics include supporting interfederation, supporting best identity management practices on the campuses, growing the skill sets for the next generation of professionals are all important
- How to engage with standards groups to be sure SAML2int advances?
- Measuring tools being used by the campuses
- CACTI and MACE
- One of the things that kept MACE fresh was the members sharing something about what’s going on in their neck of the woods that is of interest.
- What are the challenges on the horizon for the community?
- This might be a good addition to some CACTI agendas
