You may have noticed that I published an article the other day on how user provisioning products have evolved into the sophisticated Identity Management offerings we see today from the major vendors. In that article, I ended by commenting that the next challenge is to be able to extend Identity Management beyond the enterprise, to cater for the whole raft of new application delivery platforms.

According to a Network World article today, CA is expected to announce at the RSA Show that CA Identity Manager will allow organisations to provision their users to Salesforce.com Sales Cloud 2.  This new addition is expected to be made available at no cost to exisiting customers.

CA itself is a Salesforce.com customer, with access to the applications made available to its sales and pre-sales teams.  CA Siteminder is already integrated into the Salesforce.com offering, to provide single sign on.

What will be interesting will be to see to what extent CA can incorporate this cloud-based provisioning into their role life cycle management story.
