The VMware End-User-Computing Technical-Marketing Center of Excellence is happy to announce the publication of a new white paper, VMware Identity Manager On-Premises Deployment Considerations.

You might not know that VMware Identity Manager is available for on-premises as well as SaaS implementations. As the title suggests, this paper collects and clarifies information from a wide range of sources to make it easier for IT professionals to plan on-premises deployments.


Our research was based on VMware Identity Manager 2.6, released in March 2016. This version provides application provisioning, a self-service catalog, conditional access controls, and single sign-on (SSO) for SaaS, Web, cloud, and native mobile applications, as well as support for VMware Workspace ONE and integration with VMware Horizon 7. For details, see the VMware Identity Manager 2.6 Release Notes.

The just-released Identity Manager 2.7 offers additional enhancements to the Workspace ONE integration and SSO support from more devices, among other features. For more details, or to compare versions, see the VMware Identity Manager 2.7 Release Notes.

Regardless of which version of Identity Manager you plan to use, the information in this VMware Identity Manager On-Premises Deployment Considerations white paper can help clarify concepts and procedures and, above all, save you time.
