Advisory Note: Identity & Access Management/Governance Blueprint - 70839

Report Details

This blueprint aims to provide an overview of IAM/IAG to the informed user, helping them to better understand the “big picture” of IAM, including technologies such as Identity Provisioning, Access Governance, strong- and risk-based authentication and authorization and Access Management. Within this broad set of technologies, there is ongoing change and evolution. Access Governance and Identity Provisioning products are merged by some vendors, new Cloud IAM solutions integrate user management and access management.

The blueprint starts by defining the requirements process for the IAM/IAG environment, showing the important building blocks that need to be in place for identity and access control. This builds into a “Big Picture” overview, which is then broken down further to show interdependencies between the components of different technology areas. These can be used as reference patterns for architecture, project and programme management.

These reference patterns are based on controls which can be identified in the use cases listed after the big picture. These pick out a number of areas, giving not just examples of access and identity management, but of governance and risk management across the whole environment. From this perspective we are able to drill down, into the technical detail of the big picture and discuss some of the integration points for IAM/IAG which may be of practical use, and the pros and cons of doing so.

A short discussion of maturity levels shows what is common today in IAM/IAG today at level 3, as opposed to the ideal at maturity level 5. We expect to see a lot of connected enterprise/hybrid Cloud IAM as maturity level 3 in 2017, with today’s level 5 quickly becoming tomorrow’s expected level 3.

Finally, we wrap up with a few hints and pointers of how to succeed with the blueprint and implementing it in a real corporate environment.
