Taking Back Control of your Access Management
Managing access to information requires new thinking about identities and access. Only that will enable us to manage and restrict access to information as needed. Simply said, Identity and Access Management is becoming bigger than ever before and it is one of the essential foundations to make the IoT and the digital transformation of businesses work.
The target is One IT, not a separation of Cloud IT and On-Premise IT. However, there are still many offerings which are cloud-only, even while it is obvious that the reality for most organizations will remain hybrid.
