IDM 2020 - The Relationship Story

  • TYPE: Combined Session DATE: Thursday, May 17, 2018 TIME: 11:00-12:00 LOCATION: ALPSEE


IDaaS (Identity as a Service) is increasingly becoming an alternative to traditional on premises IAM deployments. While some providers focus on delivering what on premises Identity Provisioning, Access Governance, and Identity Federation do, but as a service (we call this IDaaS B2E), others focus primarily on the employee (and sometimes customer) authentication to cloud services – what we call IDaaS SSO, due to the Single Sign-On focus of these solutions. However, we see a third group of offerings emerging in the market: Integrated solutions that serve access of all users, be it employees, business partners, or customers, to all types of services, whether they run on premises or in the cloud. Many of these services are combined with other capabilities, e.g. for collaboration. As part of the session, Martin Kuppinger also will provide an overview of the state of this emerging market, based on the new KuppingerCole Leadership Compass for IDaaS.


Digital transformation, IoT and cloud are having a massive impact on our business. Not only on what we are working on but also how we are working is changing. Collaborations scenarios and new agile ways of working together demand more flexibility, more distribution and of course more complex IT. Compliance requirements - especially GDPR - still have to be fulfilled.

The presentation will introduce some best practices how to manage identities and relationships in this emerging complex ecosystem.

Key Takeaways:

  • New ways of work: employees, external staff, guests, partners, customers
  • Some usecases beyond SSO
  • The legal thing: contracts, agreements & compliance (GDPR!)
  • Manage data usage and cope with complexity
  • Get the whole picture
