Yes!!! No!!! Yes!!! No!!! Yes!!! No!!! Yes!!! No!!! Yes!!! No!!!
This is how it's been for about 3 months now, but I think we finally have our firm no.
On the plus side this means I'm going to build an identity management solution from the ground up however we want. (we being the core tech team who are involved) We do not have to build on someone else schedule. We can build the pieces we benefit from most first and build the pieces that everyone else will benefit from last. This is going to be GREAT.
Of course, we have to build it all ourselves and we have NEVER done this before. And if we fail, it's going to be bad. But thankfully no one will notice for a while. :)
The glamor is gone. it's time for hard work. And lots of Service Requests to Oracle. LOTS OF THEM.
