Mike has 25 years of experience in identity, access management, privacy, and security technologies, stemming from his time at Novell (now OpenText) where he introduced some of the first identity and access management (IAM) products and his tenure as VP and Research Director at Burton Group (now Gartner). He has since forged a career in consulting at Accenture, iC Consult, and Mycroft (now EY). Mike also worked in product management at Oracle, Domo, Trustle, and Anonyome to bring identity and security solutions to hundreds of organizations. With a well-rounded and deep understanding of the industry, Mike brings a pragmatic, yet visionary perspective to Kuppinger Cole research and advisory services.
As Lead Analyst, Mike contributes to and fosters research in the areas of IAM and cybersecurity, with particular emphasis in how artificial intelligence (AI) intersects with these categories. Mike also plays a leading role for Kuppinger Cole’s operations and growth in North America.
Mike has spent nearly the entirety of his 28-year career in digital identity, privacy, and security technologies. He has alternately worked in product, analyst, and consulting roles, all of which have provided him with insights into futurism, market growth, and real-word deployment strategies for digital identity. Given his broad base of experience, Mike also enjoys close connections with an extensive network of identity and security professionals.
In his various roles, Mike has gained experience in many industries (such as retail, insurance, manufacturing, and healthcare) and in several levels of focus (such as executive, customer, end user, vendor, security officer).
Mike joined Kuppinger Cole in August 2023 and will soon contribute research, webinars, blogs and other content.
