Identity Access Management/Governance done right for today and the future
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.

With a huge amount of data around, cloud migration is the ideal solution today. A necessary stage in migrating data to the cloud is putting it in order. This is particularly important when it comes to unstructured, so-called dark data: files and documents that are undermanaged (excel files of budget estimates, PDFs containing important patents, Word documents containing personal employee or customer information), in general the data that is not managed in an orderly fashion such as structured database which is easily governed. Usually, this kind of data that tends to be misplaced, misused, abandoned, hacked, or leaked, in the cloud and local server repositories putting enterprises at risk.
