Hello.

I'm curious as to the status of the NetIQ IDaaS offering.

Apart from the documentation on the website (below), I cannot find any
reference to availability, software or pricing.

Is this product available at all or has it been shelved?

Thanks

Dean

I've never heard of it. I don't see it on the product list nor on the
lifecycle list. However, I did find reference to it as part of the
Cloud Services Provider Program:
https://www.netiq.com/industries/cloud-services-provider/ (you can
find it on that page). I also found this old BrainShare PDF
presentation about it: https://goo.gl/xLwO57 (downloads the PDF).

Hi Kim.

I was at the BrainShare launch in 2014 and there was certainly a bit of
noise about it back then, and they seem to have kept the product alive
in some capacity (a patch update in the doc last month) but yes no
reference to it anywhere.

Interestingly I had a look at that Cloud services program page before
posting this thread and emailed the contact address and it bounced,
so......

I'll see if I can find anyone internally that knows about it. I'll
also have someone look at that email address that bounces. Thanks for
the report on that.

I finally got hold of someone that knows something about the offering.
Here's what he told me:
> we are only launching 3 IAS offerings and trying to get 6 customers to
> validate that we can deliver to the target customers. We expect a much
> larger rollout in FY18 [starts in June 2017]. So, there is really not
> much to tell right now.

FYI this email address should work and you can get what you need:
AsAService@microfocus.com (the web site will be updated) Sorry it
all took so long.
