Following up on the blog post I wrote back in January, Chuck Mortimore, Senior Director of Product Management for Identity and Security, and I will be presenting a webinar on Friday April 20th: ‘Social Sign-On with Authentication Providers‘.
Chuck will provide an overview of the Spring ’12 Authentication Provider functionality, contrasting it with the existing SAML single sign-on implementation and giving practical advice on how to choose one versus the other. I’ll show how to configure an Authentication Provider to login to a customer portal from Facebook, LinkedIn or Google via Janrain, and then Todd Bursey of FinancialForce will explain how they enabled their customers’ end users to login from their own Salesforce environments to FinancialForce’s support portal.
Even if you have already configured Social Sign-On into your orgs, you’ll definitely want to tune in for the final segment – Chuck’s sneak peek into salesforce.com’s roadmap for identity management. We will be piloting some very cool new features in Summer ’12, and Chuck will have all the info on how to get in on the game.
As usual, there will be two presentations, at 7am and 10am Pacific time, so go register now, mark your calendar, and join us on April 20th!
