V100 Show: Identity Management and Reputation-Driven Business, With Phil Windley
vSpring v100 member Phil Windley speaks with Dennis Wood about identity management and the emergence of reputation-driven business. He discusses his interest in identity management and reputation systems and the foundational roles these systems play in both the enterprise software and Internet applications spaces. Windley sees the identity management space changing rapidly as large vendors such as Microsoft and Novell and initiatives such as OpenID launch Internet identity platforms. These new platforms will create an explosion of new opportunities in reputation-driven industries such as new media, e-commerce, and social media.
