Insights into the Microsoft roadmap for Azure AD B2B and B2C.
A few weeks ago, some of the team at OCG boarded the Eurostar for the short hop to Paris to attend a European Microsoft Cloud Identity Conference over 2 days.
Microsoft Azure Active Directory B2B Collaboration and Azure AD B2C are two important pillars in Microsoft’s cloud identity strategy.
AAD B2B is the easiest way there is to federate with your partner companies, giving them access to resources in your domain without managing their credentials.
Microsoft B2C is a directory and authentication mechanism designed for customer-facing websites, with highly configurable user journeys.
At the conference, we first went over some B2B roadmap details. Here are the headline announcements:
Our very own product, Access Centre B2B, featured in a presentation slot at the conference and as a result, we came home with this award.
A day on B2C followed, with some excellent presentations on what you can achieve with Advanced Policies.
B2C advanced policies (also called the “Identity Experience Framework”) offer a hugely rich set of scenarios for crafting customised user journeys.
We also discussed some of the reasons customers buy into Microsoft B2C, a useful study for Microsoft, as the product only became generally available in 2016. These included:
Kudos to Microsoft for yet another impressive conference, packed with useful learning experience and news about their progress on these technologies.
