Leadership Compass: Access Management and Federation - 70790

Report Details

With the growing demand of business for tighter communication and collaboration with external parties such as business partners and customers, IT has to provide the technical foundation for such integration. Web Access Management and Identity Federation are key technologies for that evolution. They enable organizations to manage access from externals and to external systems, including cloud services, in a consistent way. Organizations have to move forward to strategic approaches on enabling that integration, supporting the Extended Enterprise.

While Web Access Management technologies are well established and Identity Federation also is out for years, we have observed a massive growth in interest and adoption of these technologies recently. Customers – and specifically the business departments – are requesting solutions. IT has to react and create a standard infrastructure for dealing with all the different requirements of communication and collaboration in the Extended Enterprise. In consequence, Access Management and Federation are moving from tactical IT challenges towards strategic infrastructure elements that enable business agility.

There is a number of vendors in that market segment. Most of them provide solutions for both Web Access Management and Identity Federation. The major players in that market segment are covered within this KuppingerCole Leadership Compass.
