Time to Review and Rethink: Does your Current IAM Still Suit your Needs? And did it Deliver what you Expected?

Many organizations have started their journey into the world of IAM several years ago.
After ten or so years, many organizations already started reviewing their investments, for various reasons:
- Vendors and their products disappeared
- Vendors do not seem to be leading-edge anymore
- The requirements have changed
- The gut feeling is that companies spend too much money
- Many of the targets still not have been reached, after many years of investment
Today’s requirements are fairly different than the ones who drove IAM investments ten years ago. Technology has evolved. So this might be a good time to step back, review the IAM/IAG program and rethink strategy and roadmap.
Martin Kuppinger, Founder and Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will talk about assessing the maturity of IAM programs and about how to embrace and extend existing investments – and where maybe better do something entirely new and replace existing components. This is about balancing existing investments, current short-term requirements, and sustainability for future challenges.
In the second part of the webinar, Marco Venuti of CrossIdeas will talk about how a vendor that has not been in the game ten years ago might help customers solving the challenges they are facing, by taking different ways and benefiting from the learnings of customers over many years.

Data is widely considered the “new oil" because data has great value and provides direct and secondary revenue streams. But, also like oil, data can leak from organizations that depend on it. Therefore, data security and the prevention of data leakage is imperative for business as well as regulatory compliance reasons.
