I have a client who needs me to review MIIS, ADFS and AD Forest-level trusts to determine which method to use to link two organizations for several shared applications. Some apps are web-based other are client-server apps. Can you suggest a briefing which would shed some light on strengths and weaknesses of each Identity Integration method?
TIA!

It all depends on the requirements. ADFS provides SSO to web applications whereas MIIS/ILM are for more complex, non-web identity management. If you require proper provisioning you should look into Microsoft's Identity Lifetime Manager 2007 (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/technologies/idm/ilm.mspx).

You can also find a lot of good information at miisexperts.org.
