- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Wednesday, July 22, 2009 TIME: 17:00-18:00 CEST, 11am Eastern
Externalizing Identities from applications into a service oriented layer within the enterprise IT architecture has been discussed a lot within the last years, mainly in the light of reducing application development costs and to devolve all those identity silos captured in enterprise applications. With cloud computing and *aaS picking up momentum, the externalization of identity management into such a service layer finally seems to be rewarded with enough attention to move far up on many CIO´s priority lists. Join this free webinar moderated by Dave Kearns to learn more about the different models of identity as a service.
Saas, PaaS, IDaas... - everything wants to become available as a service (*aaS). So does Identity, being a key enabler for secure cloud computing. Although it has become difficult to write about Identity as a Service (TM), as the term and it´s acronym IaaS (TM) have been trademarked, Dave Kearns will discuss with some of the cloud computing thought leaders giving you a guideline along your unavoidable way into the cloud.
Some of the key considerations when it comes to measuring the "cloud readiness" of enterprise IT, are:
- What is the difference between "coventional" outsourcing and cloud computing and how does this affect your identity management?
- What are the models, architectures and tools to externalize identity into the cloud?
- How can you provide unified identity services for the various clouds you might connect to?
Today’s IT environments blend applications and services from multiple public cloud networks, private clouds and on-prem networks, making it difficult to view and inventory assets deployed across complex hybrid networks, and keep track of the security risks. Organizations need to find a way to improve visibility, identify and prioritize risks, and maintain cyber resiliency.
