  • TYPE: Combined Session DATE: Thursday, September 26, 2019 TIME: 13:30-14:30 LOCATION: Emerald 2


Abstract: Digital Services are everywhere around and with us. Regardless if we log into our company IT systems, if we order lunch online or do some Christmas shopping.

Just to name a few. Booking travel, leasing cars, checking our bank account are just a few more.

Checking the time on your smart watch and btw. Read some messages being send to you.

And those is just a sample of the visible services. Who knows about the other, hidden service?

One is for all in common. We have to struggle with separated accounts across all platforms and services.

A minority of services supports nowadays account consolidation and centralized login procedures.

We as the users of digital platforms of any kind for any purpose are individuals. Therefore should we be treated as digital individuals.

Identity Professionals, as the insiders, are eager to implement and use any new and fancy technology and follow kinky Identity trends.

What are useful trends for consolidated accounts, sovereign identities?

Dirk Wahlefeld will outline the future diversion of Identity from Access and touches on some more aspects, e.g. the necessity of standards and the influence of identity to other technological trends.

This hopefully interactive presentation is addressed to those who are interested in the context about how Identity Management was, today is as it is, and looking forward to what the future might bring.

1. Review the past, to understand today and predict the future

2. Insight into project feedback and experience from the field about the integrational and future planning parts of Identity Management.

3. Outline the non-technical imperatives, to be considered regardless of technology, but for the best of the project and the users.

4. Provide ideas for simplification of Identity-related or –using solutions and applications.

5. Do I have to mention “blockchain”?
