Identity and Access Management for Microsoft Azure and SharePoint Online
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, November 30, 2017 TIME: 4:00pm CET, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
A modern enterprise IAM infrastructure goes far beyond just Single Sign-On, and, when incorporating cloud services like SharePoint Online into a hybrid infrastructure, the resulting solution is expected to provide a broad and consistent spectrum of functionality across existing on-premises and emerging cloud services: Provisioning, Privilege Management or Access Recertification to name just a few. The ultimate goal should be having one integrated IAM infrastructure for the entire hybrid IT environment.
In this KuppingerCole webinar, we are going to discuss the following topics:
- · The need for a unified IAM approach for hybrid IT infrastructures
- · Specifics of connecting to cloud services; potential obstacles and complications
- · Why Cloud IAM is more than just Single Sign-On
- · Implementing IAM for the cloud in general and Microsoft Cloud in particular
In the first part of the webinar, Martin Kuppinger, founder and Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will look at the approaches for managing hybrid environments following a unified IAM approach. He will discuss the options and the need for having one IAM at least for your employees. Furthermore, he will look at specific requirements of the Microsoft Cloud.
In the second part, Patrick Parker, founder and CEO of EmpowerID, will dive deeper into the specific challenges of incorporating Microsoft Cloud Services into existing IAM infrastructures and will present an example of a successful project for a large European customer implemented by his company along with several key partners.

The march of the cloud is unstoppable. Eager to outsource the tedious and expensive maintenance of their IT infrastructures to a reliable 3rd party, most companies would dream of becoming cloud-native, at least in the long term. Needless to say, letting someone else run your identity management out there sounds like a great idea as well, hence the rising popularity of Identity-as-a-Service solutions that combine the latest technology achievements with the flexibility of the cloud.
