In March of 2007 I had the opportunity to work with a Novell team to put together an interop demo between Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) and the early bits of Access Manager 3.1 for Microsoft’s booth at Novell's BrainShare Conference. At that time we demonstrated users from Active Directory and eDirectory accessing/collaborating on a federated SharePoint site via WS-Federation. Since then, Novell has also added support for information cards in Access Manager 3.1! It’s great to see these interoperable capabilities come to fruition and increasing enable business scenarios and solutions for software plus services. You can read more about Access Manager 3.1 in Dale Olds’ blog. Congratulations to Novell!
