Whenever people are talking about the Digital Transformation, they usually think about modern technologies like cloud computing. However, although adopting new technologies is important for staying relevant and competitive in the rapidly changing market, this transformation primarily reflects the growing volume of digital information that is powering key business processes and unlocking new business models. In many cases, digital data even becomes a company’s primary product and most valuable asset.
As the number of business applications across different platforms and environments is rapidly growing, the resulting complexity and heterogeneous nature of modern corporate IT infrastructures makes storing, analyzing and protecting this critical business information an incredibly complicated task. Nowadays, data may be spread across multiple networks and systems in a broad range of formats (structured and unstructured), accessed by a large number of users (not just employees, but contractors, partners and even customers) from multiple device platforms and governed by a wide range of security and compliance regulations.
Protecting sensitive information from unauthorized access, providing centralized visibility and compliance and minimizing access-related risks across corporate IT systems are the key areas covered by modern Identity Governance solutions. In the recent years this market segment has emerged as one of the fastest growing areas of the broader IAM market, quickly evolving from identity provisioning and regulatory reporting into an integrated automation, security and compliance technology.

Scope and extent of a modern identity governance solution strategy;

Data is widely considered the “new oil" because data has great value and provides direct and secondary revenue streams. But, also like oil, data can leak from organizations that depend on it. Therefore, data security and the prevention of data leakage is imperative for business as well as regulatory compliance reasons.
