Over the last years, Compliance has often been cited as the most important driver for Identity Management. But, honestly, it is IT Governance as one of the most important parts of Corporate Governance. Within IT Governance (and within the identity and access management), the scope shouldn’t be limited to either Enterprise Systems and core business processes or to the Identity Management level. Companies need an consistent approach for IT Governance which focuses on risks as well as compliance and which integrates SOAs, IAM and BPM (and may be BSM) to really fulfill the requirements. Martin Kuppinger will provide his thoughts on this topic within this session.
