Cloud IAM, or IDaaS, is a rapidly growing market segment. This growth is driven by a variety of business cases, ranging from operational advantages and better support for employees accessing cloud services to the flexible integration of business partners and consumers in the age of digital transformation. Organizations need to understand their challenges, the potential of Cloud IAM, and what Cloud IAM must provide in functionality for addressing these challenges.
Cloud IAM (Identity and Access Management) is on the rise, and it is more than just Single Sign-On. Managing user journeys, directory functionality, access control, and governance is mandatory. Identity and access governance is a key topic in most organizations and, just as with identity provisioning, it does not become obsolete when making the shift to Cloud IAM.

- Understanding your Cloud IAM challenges
