Benchmarking and Optimization

A CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF THE SCOPE AND ADEQUACY OF THE DEFINED PROCESSES, IMPLEMENTED SYSTEMS AND THE ORGANIZATION IN WHICH THEY ARE EMBEDDED IS AN INDISPENSABLE BASIS IN MANY ADVISORY SITUATIONS.

This also enables a comparison with peer organizations and a position determination with regard to corporate goals, compliance requirements and the degree of efficiency and cost-effectiveness achieved.

Forward-looking teams and organizations apply benchmarking for various criteria of their business processes. To achieve this, a neutral and independent rating of the level of maturity and adequacy of established processes and implemented technologies is essential.

On the basis of such benchmarking, gaps can be detected, recommended or required operational measures can be identified. Subsequently, long-term strategies can be defined and form the basis to initiate overarching strategic programs.

KuppingerCole Analysts provides benchmarking and optimization services in a wide range of areas (infrastructure, applications, organization or operations), including Identity and Access Management (IAM), Consumer Identity and Access Management (CIAM), an organizations’ overall readiness for regulatory requirements like GDPR or PSD2, or an organization‘s entire Cybersecurity approach.

KuppingerCole Analysts‘ Reviews & Benchmarking and Readiness Assessments are proven, standardized methodologies which allow organizations to understand their status quo in a defined area and/or what they are required to do before entering a new field or technology as well as how to meet regulatory requirements.
