Yesterday marked a good day for FIM in the Bay Area. A FIM users group was organized with participation from many different companies including current users of FIM, groups considering FIM, Microsoft product group representatives as well as third party integrators.
There were presentations of FIM deployments in real world situations including how the product was deployed, how obstacles were overcome and the end-user reception of the functionality provided to them.
Thanks to Simon Thorpe (of Microsoft) for organizing the event. Hopefully this event can continue to grow so discussion can grow among the organizations to share improvement in how to do things in FIM and meet others who are working with it!
Anyone in the area who is interested in future instances of the user group are encouraged to leave comments here. Let’s try to keep this ball rolling!
