Discussed the 6 points in Dedra's email to the group. Consensus that #3 and #4 (gap analysis and identification of which parts of the gap will be attacked first) are nearer the core of the f2f activity than the other points. Governance, etc logically follows after knowing what it is that's to be governed. OTOH, things like ability to respond to an RFI, available commercial support providers, and established governance can be just as critical to an adoption decision as feature completeness, so it's also reasonable to think of such things as part of the gap analysis.
TomB asked for reasons, beyond Dedra's, others have for investing themselves in this effort. Some paraphrased responses:
- Ensure that analysis of the gap takes existing solutions, commercial and otherwise, fully into account.
- Strive to have an integrable set of more focused products or "IdM blocks" as opposed to a monolithic suite, recognizing that campuses often can or will only take one step at a time, not swap out all they do in order to gain one new capability.
- Ensure that this effort "addresses the buzz", ie, things like SCIM, cloud apps, or other terms more associated with the strategic outlook CIOs take, not just the more operational and tactical needs of meeting today's requirements.
- Kuali RICE wants its path forward to be relevant and responsive to IdM needs.
- Project Bamboo has unmet needs in the IdM space and hopes this effort will net at least some of them.
- Penn State likewise.
Who's got real use cases or functional requirements developed?
- EricW says use cases from several RICE stakeholder campuses are being gathered now and he could present a selection of them at the f2f.
- KeithH can detail some Project Bamboo use cases.
- ReneeS has spent two years assembling a set of ~80 PSU use cases and has derived functional and technical requirements from them.
- RobC has a number from Duke.
- HamptonS might convey use cases from several UC schools, if he's able to participate.
Pre-workshop activity #1
KeithH, ReneeS, RobC, HamptonS
Work out a good way to get the most out of their aggregate use case material, which could include determining a common way to present them, making a good representative selection across the aggregate set, etc
Pre-workshop activity #2
Prepare a description or depiction of the schema, blocks, chunks, or clusters that will frame the gap
