'Twas the night before Christmas

December 24, 2014

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the internet
Not an identity was stirring, not even a Passport .NET
The user accounts requests were submitted with care
Hoping that their access would soon be there

The users were nestled all snug in their beds
While visions of being able to do their jobs danced in their heads
The servers and computers were in sleep mode
Awaiting someone to move a mouse and send the wake up code

An urgent email pinging my iPhone created a vibration
I sprang to my Surface to see what was the perturbation.
Opening up Windows 8.1, I signed in to the computer
I ran AD Users and Computers and Event Viewer

User accounts had been created and added to groups
All while I had slept after eating my soups
As I looked at my network, what should appear?
But a brand new Identity Management System so nice and clear

On Sync Engine, on Management Agent! Now MPRs and Workflows!
On Metaverse on Sync Rules!  On PowerShell and Data flows!
To the web service! To Self Service Password Resets!
Provision, Deprovision and Synchronize all the sets!

Ok, ok so maybe I am just a bit eager for the release of Microsoft Identity Manager (due out 1st half of 2015).
