The Cloud Makes Federation Untenable

At one point in time, flying from one place to another required pilots to plot direct flights between them. As air travel became mainstream, it was no longer economical to fly directly from one place to another, and airlines built hubs that ushered passengers from one location to another. In the same way, identity federation has required organizations to make direct connections to each other, in order to provide users with a Single Sing-On (SSO) experience. The advent of cloud computing has made this economically inviable. As organizations adopt this new computing paradigm, it is impossible for them to make and maintain direct connections to each cloud service provider. Without it, however, users must provide a username and password for each cloud service, which is also unacceptable. In the same way airlines solved this dilemma, PingOne provides organizations with an identity hub that ushers user identities between them in a more cost effective way.
