The New Role of IAM in the Age of Digital Transformation
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Wednesday, September 20, 2017 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am ET, 7:00am PT
Presenting the Results of KuppingerCole’s Recent Survey on Organizations’ Readiness for the New Digital Economy
Finding the right balance between rigorous privacy regulations like the upcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation and the urgent business-driven demand to open existing (and often still entirely on-premises and siloed) Enterprise IAM infrastructures to entirely new classes of identities and applications is a challenging task that calls for a very careful assessment of the company’s readiness for such major changes.
In this webinar, we are going to talk about:
- Digital Transformation and its impact on modern businesses
- Key trends and developments in IAM to help companies embrace new business models
- Assessing your company’s IAM maturity and future readiness against your peers and competitors
- Finding the right balance between knowing your customer and complying with data protection regulations
In the first part of the webinar, Martin Kuppinger, Founder and Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will present the key results of the recently published survey “State of Organizations: Does Their IAM Meet Their Needs in the Age of Digital Transformation?” and provide further analysis and recommendations on them.
In the second part, Niels von der Hude, Director Market Development IAM at Beta Systems Software, will explain the real-life impact of Digital Transformation on companies, illustrating the key trends and developments that Enterprise Identity and Access Management needs to adapt to cloud computing, Industry 4.0, and new regulatory compliance aspects like GDPR.

GDPR is here to stay and the new ePrivacy regulation is on the horizon, but many organizations are still not yet in full state of compliance. A core requirement for compliance with GDPR is the concept of “consent,” which is fairly new for most data controllers. Now, with the GDPR regulation in force, parties processing personally identifiable information need to ask the user for his/her consent to do so and let the user revoke that consent any time and as easily as it was given.
