Conducting an Orchestra – The New Role of IAM

  • LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, March 22, 2012 TIME: 16:00 CET, 8:00am PT, 11:00pm ET
Upcoming Webinars

With the loss of control over many resources through current trends like BYOD (bring your own devices) and usage of cloud services, enterprise IT is going through a radical change. In this webinar, you will learn about the new role of Identity & Access Management as an information security cornerstone.

The enterprise IT is in transformation. The use of social media and own devices (BOYD – bring your own device) in enterprises show that there is no longer a clear separation between privately used IT and enterprise IT. On the other hand the sharp contours of the enterprise IT are increasingly blurred by the use of cloud services and outsourcing of business processes.

These trends need to be addressed. Enterprises are no longer in direct control of all resources and service providers. They have to stipulate service quality and security through contracts, KPIs and SLAs. In this scenario IAM is a cornerstone for securing business critical information, privacy and compliance in business and administration processes in a multitude of diverse applications and service providers.

As an IAM vendor, system integrator, outsourcer and service provider Atos is active in all in these areas. Atos supports enterprises and organizations in their transformation process and provides tailored IAM solutions – on-premise, as managed service or from the cloud.

In this webinar, Martin Kuppinger will talk about the new challenges enterprises are faced with and discuss strategic options. He will reflect the changing situation and address the requirements for this area. In doing so, he aligns this situation in the context of the KuppingerCole IT Model and shows, which prominent role IAM plays for the IT of the future.

Following Martin, Ralf Knöringer and Rudolf Wildgruber from Atos IT Solutions will discuss practically, how enterprises ensure to keep the governance over their identities in the transformation process and present the elements and service options of a future-proof IAM solution.
