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.

Blockchain and the underlying concept of “Distributed Ledger Technologies” (DLT) have well passed the peak of initial hype. As always, focus is now shifting to real-world applications that allow companies to improve their business. It is less about cryptocurrencies and concepts with a global impact, but more about process and supply chain optimizations as well as better identity (ID) concepts. Blockchain IDs are being heavily discussed as the number of concrete product offerings is increasing in the marketplace. With organizations facing an ever-growing ID problem in their Digital Transformation, dealing with employees, partners, customers and consumers, the following questions are being raised, “Is there an enterprise use case for Blockchain ID? If so, is it only KYC (Know Your Customer) or more? And, when and how will businesses be able to benefit from Blockchain IDs?”
