- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, April 21, 2015 TIME: 4:00pm CET, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
Identity and Access Management (IAM) projects have the notorious reputation of being complex, time-consuming and expensive. Fresh thinking and new approaches are now changing how IAM solutions are being deployed so that you can enable revenue generating services faster than ever. One of these advances is the ability to integrate your IAM solution with your CRM – leveraging your customer and partner data as a powerful component of your IAM strategy. To learn more about the technology and the business benefits, we invite you to join our upcoming webinar.
While provisioning new employees – and sometimes even new contractors - can be easily handled by links from your HR system to your internal IAM system, major challenges begin to arise when you need to manage large volumes of external user identities and their access to your extranets, portals and e-Services. The success of your business depends upon the ease of which your users can access the services they need – providing a positive user experience and reducing the burden on your customer support staff. Integrating your CRM to your IAM solution can get you there quicker by inviting your users directly from your CRM so they can self-manage their own identities and access.
In this webinar, you will learn about:
- External user identity management solutions and integration with your CRM
- Benefits you can achieve by integrating your IAM solution with the CRM system
- How you can save costs, improve processes and increase your customer satisfaction
- Recommendations for best practices and how to get started
