Microservice Architectures for IAM
- TYPE: Combined Session DATE: Thursday, May 16, 2019 TIME: 15:30-16:30 LOCATION: ALPSEE
In today’s connected world, businesses are competing on speed and agility to meet tremendous expectations of customers. In order to achieve this level of agility, the underlying architecture needs to be dramatically different from what we know in the past. Lean, lightweight, and rapid development and deployments have taken over the way we look at software development. Microservices are able to fulfil this promise but change also the way on how Identity and Access Management is treated within software development.
Monolithic, perimeter-based security is outdated by IAM standards, zero trust and fine-grained microservices designed for Identity and Access Management.
In this talk we outline the advantages of a microservices-based architecture and what it means for the software development process. We explain the benefits enterprises will gain and will discuss their disruptive nature.
IAM deployments are traditionally considered complex implementations that require significant time, effort and investment on an on-going basis to match the rapidly changing business processes and operating environment of a dynamic organization. Conventional IAM deployments are largely software implementations that over a period of time become rather complicated to the extent of being unmanageable due to the amount of customizations and the business need to honour the legacy systems and applications. As a result, most IAM deployments can’t scale very well, encounter frequent performance issues and do not match the desired speed and agility required by the business.
It becomes increasingly important that IAM leaders understand the limitations of traditional software-based delivery approaches and plan for a transition to Microservices-based delivery approach for IAM that comprises of loosely coupled technology components offering the flexibility of managing each IAM component independently, enabling a lean and faster IAM.
In this session, we will discuss the challenges of a traditional IAM delivery approach versus a microservices approach and offer the necessary guidance for IAM leaders and architects to build a strong business case for moving from a monolithic IAM architecture to microservices architecture.
