In this episode of the Edge show Simon May and Rick Claus talk through the latest developments in the Microsoft world including an Office project called Oslo and the Concept of the Office Graph, the think about Life in the Digital Crosshairs or how Microsoft develops secure software and finally apparently Windows XP has almost reached it's end of service! Who knew there was only one patch Tuesday left for Windows XP...Simon and Rick apparently.
In the interview for this episode Simon May talks to Adam Hall from the Cloud and Enterprise group (you'll have seen him on the TechEd main stage) about Hybrid Identity, which is the concept of extending your on-premises single-version-of the truth identity store (AD for 95% of you) to the cloud. Why would you do that? To make identity more usable on a range of devices and in many connectivity scenarios, such as connecting to mobile devices or to the 800+ supported SaaS applications out there.
