Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:

A brief introduction of SCIM (System for Cross-domain Identity Management) was given and its primary use case.

We went through the major enhancements of SCIM v2 vs. v1 and the current IETF status which is that the specification has now reached working group consensus and is moving forward to standard status.

We had a lot of good discussion on some use cases and how ownership and points of administrative control: e.g. control from the enterprise, vs. a designated cloud service provider, etc.

We had a great discussion on event notification and the general problem with REST services for coordinating identity change events across an eco-system. This sets the stage for the Day 2 SCIM presentations on future work.
