On Joining Constellation Research
“We are witnessing tremendous flux as the digital revolution blends our work and personal spaces. As a society we are only beginning to understand the impact on private and public identities and how we conduct ourselves in the digital economy. Constellation Research is a red hot melting pot of business and technology, and an amazing channel in which to join disruptive ideas to diverse businesses.” - Steve Wilson, Vice President and Principal Analyst, Constellation Research

Steve Wilson Research Manifesto
“I work in disruptive authentication technologies and I’m committed to reforming identity management orthodoxies. Novel technology driven IDM ‘ecosystem’ provokes a sort of immune response from the business establishment; despite the desperate problems of trust and insecurity online. Promising IDM frameworks repeatedly fail. My work tries to explain this paradox. The answers lie in re-imagining identity management, with a promise of more elegant identity solutions that fit more smoothly into the ways real business is done.” - Steve Wilson, Vice President and Principal Analyst, Constellation Research

R “Ray” Wang comments on the significance of Digital Identity
"The recent NSA leaks, a battle for identity among social logins and financial services firms, and a growing awareness for a balance between privacy and convenience have our clients asking for Steve's expertise," noted R "Ray" Wang, Founder and Chairman of Constellation Research. "We're very lucky to have Steve on the team as his research agenda is core across our business themes. For those who are attending our innovation summit, you can catch him live as he leads one of our tracks in our Big Ideas Forum on October 31, 2013". - R “Ray” Wang, Chairman and Principal Analyst, Constellation Research
