Advisory Note: The Open API Economy - 70352

How the Open API Economy is increasing and changing the need for Identity Management.

Baking an organization’s core competence into an Open API is an economic imperative.

It’s clear that three main trends are driving technology in all areas. It goes without saying that as digital identity is the gateway to all network-based products and services that identity is being affected by these trends:

Social Computing
Mobile Computing
Cloud Computing

While this observation is accurate and certainly these three trends are having a significant impact on things, there is yet another trend that is having just as big of an impact as the well-known troika of social, mobile and cloud computing. The trend I am going to identify is so big that I am labeling it not just as a computing model, but as an emerging economy.

Cloud Provider Assurance
Using the cloud involves an element of trust between the consumer and the provider of a cloud service; however, it is vital to verify that this trust is well founded. Assurance is the process that provides this verification. The first step towards assuring a cloud service is to understand the business requirements for it. The needs for cost, compliance and security follow directly from these requirements. There is no absolute assurance level for a cloud service – it needs to be just as secure, compliant and cost effective as dictated by the business needs –– no more and no less.
