Novell Identity Manager tools for implementation and administration have always been the product's key differentiating factor. Recent changes have made Identity Manager implementations even more easy and efficient. Whether you are new to Identity Manager or are an existing user, attend this session to learn more about Designer, Analyzer and iManager.

For Designer, you will hear about Identity Manager staging, role-based entitlements, and key performance improvements such as working over VPN and an optimized import/deployment of your identity management project. The presenters will also offer insight into how well Designer supports the latest versions of Identity Manager and Novell Identity Manager Roles Based Provisioning Module with the new Rich Client Platform (RCP) Designer and the support it offers to Novell Compliance Management Platform. Finally, you'll hear about the Designer roadmap for the Identity Manager product line.

You will also hear about the data cleansing and massaging capabilities in Analyzer. For iManager, you will see new features such as war file deployment.
