The Globalization of IAM for Manufacturing Businesses
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, September 17, 2019 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
Globalization has given many companies the opportunity to run factories and other operations in various countries. In doing so, manufacturers are faced with challenging regulations they have to comply with and that may differ in the U.S., EMEA, Russia, China, and other countries. IAM is an essential element for operating business, when it comes to employees, business partners such as suppliers, and customers.
The complexity of running IAM as a service can be reduced significantly by managing geographically dispersed data centers centrally.
In this KuppingerCole webinar, you will learn about:
- Challenges for IAM in geographically dispersed businesses
- Specific regulatory differences between regions that need to be met
- Moving IAM to a service model without losing flexibility
- Success factors for IAM deployment and operations for global businesses
In the first part of the webinar, KuppingerCole Principal Analyst Martin Kuppinger will cover the issue of IAM in regulatory challenging environments and specific aspects of regulations to be considered. He also will introduce key success factors.
In the second part, Andre Priebe, CTO of iC Consult Group, will look at the approach businesses can take to solve the deployment and operational challenges in these environments, while remaining flexible and meeting the key success factors. He will introduce the approach iC Consult takes with its Service Layers unit.

IT endpoints are no longer just workstations and servers confined to corporate headquarters, branch offices, customer sites, and data centers, they can now be just about anything located anywhere, from employee homes to airports, hotels and in the cloud. But every endpoint represents a potential entry point for cyber attackers, and needs to be managed.
