"customers are starting to realize that no vendor is stable enough to guarantee protection of their investment in IDM solution. This is partly caused by the fact that most IDM deployments are significantly customized and that there is no easy migration path from one product to the other. "Migration" of IDM deployment in fact means re-implementation from the ground up. Open source solutions provide better protection of investment - ability to stay with the same product even if "vendor" is dead. That was clearly demonstrated when ForgeRock took over OpenSSO product that Oracle abandoned. That was the first major case of this phenomenon but it is unlikely that it was the last one."
