1 Executive Summary
Digital identities are ubiquitous. Everyone and everything hase one or more such digital identities. Digital services utilize these digital identities of consumers and customers, but also of things and devices. In the backend, there are the digital identities of services, and for executing the business, we have digital identities of the workforce and business partners.
In a nutshell: There is no successful digital business without utilizing digital identities. Digital identities of consumers, customers, business partners, employees, but also devices, things, or services are at the core of the digital business. Unfortunately, most digital identities reside in siloes.
The need for Identity Unification and overcoming identity siloes applies to all areas of today's organizations. Whether you look at more traditional use cases within the workforce and partner IAM, at traditional CIAM (Customer IAM), or the delivery of digital services: Digital identities must be well-managed at all levels.
The foundation for delivering a unified perspective are modern Identity Fabrics, as defined by KuppingerCole Analysts, which are built to enable seamless yet secure access of everyone and everything to every service. Such Identity Fabrics benefit from technologies that serve them in aggregating and unifying existing identity siloes into a de-siloed view.
Building a modern Identity Fabric that delivers seamless yet secure and controlled access from everyone and everything to every service requires breaking down the legacy identity siloes. Only then, new digital services can unveil and leverage the potential of the identities you have and thar are newly created.
Radiant Logic delivers the technology for creating a unified view and use across all types of identities, thus delivering the foundation for modern Identity Fabrics. These solutions help turn identity into such key business enabler, and address the fragmentation of identity data as well as the lack of reliable data, i.e., the lack of good-enough Identity Information Quality.
The RadiantOne platform is a solution that fits in between the various sources of identities, and the central identity services that form a comprehensive Identity Fabric. RadiantOne delivers Identity Unification capabilities required for the Identity Fabric.
It is time to move from traditional, disparate, heterogeneous identity siloes to a unified approach on Identity Management for the Digital Business. This involves various steps, but it all starts with having a unified view on identities.
