KuppingerCole just published the advisory note "Maturity Level Matrixes for Identity and Access Management/Governance"

Wiesbaden, May 24, 2013 – KuppingerCole offers a standard approach on rating the status of current IT programs from both the Business and IT perspective and providing focused advice for further IT spending. 

The analyst group KuppingerCole just published the advisory note “Maturity Level Matrixes for Identity and Access Management/Governance”. 

Most large organizations and a significant number of medium-sized organizations have heavily invested in IAM (Identity and Access Management) and IAG (Identity and Access Governance) during the past few years. Some projects went well; others did not deliver as expected. But even organizations that run successful IAM/IAG projects are challenged by new evolutions, such as the increasing relevance of the “Computing Troika” of Cloud Computing, Mobile Computing, and Social Computing and continually increasing regulatory pressure.

In this advisory note Martin Kuppinger, founder and principal analyst at KuppingerCole, provides matrixes that support reviewing the current state of IT programs and projects. They provide information about levels, descriptive characteristics of these levels, and information about the technologies involved at the various levels. Organizations can use them to compare their current state with these Maturity Level Matrixes and identify the gaps. 

In this context KuppingerCole also supports companies in the assessment of their individual IT solutions, such as IAM/IAG (Identity Access Management/Governance), Cloud Computing, or IT Service Management. KuppingerCole’s concept is based on four pillars, including

  • The Future IT Paradigm by KuppingerCole, describing KuppingerCole’s expectations on IT organizations that are well positioned for dealing with today’s IT challenges.
  • KuppingerCole Maturity Levels, describing various levels of maturity for technical building blocks within the programs.
  • KuppingerCole’s broad insight and experience regarding the status of both vendors and end user organizations.
  • KuppingerCole’s deep insight and knowledge about current and upcoming trends and the impact they will have.

The Advisory note “Maturity Level Matrixes for Identity and Access Management/Governance” is now available for download from http://www.kuppingercole.com/reports – as are all other KuppingerCole reports.

Journalists may request this Advisory Note and all other KuppingerCole analyses and research from KuppingerCole free of charge; please furnish us with specimen copies of any published articles referring to our reports.
