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.

With a huge amount of data around, cloud migration is the ideal solution today. A necessary stage in migrating data to the cloud is putting it in order. This is particularly important when it comes to unstructured, so-called dark data: files and documents that are undermanaged (excel files of budget estimates, PDFs containing important patents, Word documents containing personal employee or customer information), in general the data that is not managed in an orderly fashion such as structured database which is easily governed. Usually, this kind of data that tends to be misplaced, misused, abandoned, hacked, or leaked, in the cloud and local server repositories putting enterprises at risk.
Blockchain is still on everyone’s lips and the 2019 can be the year when large enterprises finally embrace the distributed ledger technology. KuppingerCole's inaugural blockchain-themed event will go beyond the hype and will present you real use cases and applications for your enterprise.
