The New Role of IAM in the Age of Digital Transformation
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Wednesday, September 20, 2017 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am ET, 7:00am PT
Organizations are under pressure to change in the current age of Digital Transformation. One of the key differentiators of innovative digital business models and thus new revenue streams is the profoundly changed relationship to customers and consumers. Creating innovative consumer services, collecting and managing better customer information and even just optimizing the reach of everyday marketing activities – all this depends on the ability to manage consumer identities in a flexible, scalable and secure way.
Finding the right balance between rigorous privacy regulations like the upcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation and the urgent business-driven demand to open existing (and often still entirely on-premises and siloed) Enterprise IAM infrastructures to entirely new classes of identities and applications is a challenging task that calls for a very careful assessment of the company’s readiness for such major changes.
In this webinar, we are going to talk about:
- Digital Transformation and its impact on modern businesses
- Key trends and developments in IAM to help companies embrace new business models
- Assessing your company’s IAM maturity and future readiness against your peers and competitors
- Finding the right balance between knowing your customer and complying with data protection regulations
In the first part of the webinar, Martin Kuppinger, Founder and Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will present the key results of the recently published survey “State of Organizations: Does Their IAM Meet Their Needs in the Age of Digital Transformation?” and provide further analysis and recommendations on them.
In the second part, Niels von der Hude, Director Market Development IAM at Beta Systems Software, will explain the real-life impact of Digital Transformation on companies, illustrating the key trends and developments that Enterprise Identity and Access Management needs to adapt to cloud computing, Industry 4.0, and new regulatory compliance aspects like GDPR.

In the face of increasing cyber-attacks by cybercriminals and nation-states, most organizations are investing in filling in the gaps in their cyber defenses, but as the landmark SolarWinds supply chain breach showed, securing Microsoft Active Directory (AD) is vital, but often overlooked.
