Integrating and maintaining each cloud application individually within the enterprise IAM solution is no real alternative. Obviously, building a pure Cloud IAM besides the existing on-site IAM is also not the most elegant way to solve the challenge. The target should be to use an approach that seamlessly connects the enterprise IAM solution with a multitude of cloud services in a standardized, centralized way.
Atos, the cloud service provider and vendor of the DirX IAM product suite, is launching a cloud service offering an identity federation hub that seamlessly connects enterprise identity management services through a single and reliable channel with services in public, hybrid and private clouds. This allows enterprises to extend identity management, access governance and SSO to services in the cloud in a cost-effective and efficient way.
In this webinar, Martin Kuppinger will talk about architectural approaches for extending IAM to the Cloud. He will show variants for hybrid IAM and IAG architectures which allow managing all identities and access in a consistent way.
Following Martin, Gerrit Pot and Ulrich Häring from Atos unveil the new Atos Identity Federation Hub cloud service and illustrate how the service helps enterprises to scale the level of security, transparency and compliance into the cloud.

The Internet of Things is disrupting all industries and use cases; from customer IoT, to Industrial IoT. Companies are forced to become more innovative with their products whilst their services are being, or will be, digitized. Top drivers of this digitization are eroding margins and changing customer behaviour, whereas new market disruptors face security challenges. The question now becomes: where do companies decide to focus their money and efforts, in order to capitalize on this disruption? Either on business optimization, by doing things better and more efficiently, or focusing on a business transformation, to move from CAPEX to OPEX.
