On the Microsoft Server and Cloud blog today the news was released that FIM will see a major release in the year 2015:
The lack of roadmap has caused quite a bit of pessimism, and it would have been reasonable to expect FIM to fall off the same cliff as UAG. I’m excited to hear more about the next release, and also how it will integrate with the next version of the synchronization engine.
Here is the news regarding FIM:
Forefront Identity Manager
The next full release of FIM will be delivered as part of Microsoft’s identity and access management product roadmap, which includes both on-premises investments and those we are making in Windows Azure Active Directory and related cloud services.
The investment areas for this next major release of FIM will include:
- Hybrid scenarios with Windows Azure AD
- User & Access Management
- Audit & Compliance
We will share more details on specific features and functionality as we get closer to the release date.
