IAM as a Managed Service

  • TYPE: Combined Session DATE: Thursday, May 07, 2015 TIME: 15:30-16:30 LOCATION: ALPSEE

Experiences with IAM as a Service and/or IAM Managed Service

Many organizations today raise the question whether they could and should move their IAM infrastructure to the cloud (IAM as a service) or run it as a managed service. However, many IAM infrastructures still primarily support on-premise applications, thus this would be about connecting back to the on-premise IT infrastructure. So, does IAM in the cloud or as managed service only work well for organizations that run most of their IT in the cloud anyway? And what about customizations? IAM deployments commonly are heavily customized – will this work in such environments as well? Or is it anyway the better approach to rely more on standards for IAM processes etc.? And what about the risks of running IAM, which deals with the sensitive areas of identity and access, outside of the enterprise? Is it too much of a risk? The panelists will discuss these and other questions around when and why to move IAM to the cloud and when to better leave it on-premises.
