In addition to reports, the group will in future provide market analyses for different segments comparing the leading products in the various areas of Identity Management and evaluating them.
Sebastian Rohr will also be involved in selected strategic consulting projects of Kuppinger Cole + Partner with the analysts´ focus being directed to Identity Management strategies, and playing the part of a “second opinion” when it comes to review strategies and decisions about the choice of a product. To KPC it goes without saying to be strictly producer-neutral.
