Times are challenging, probably more than during the last few decades, with a pandemic that seems to never ending, homeoffice workers who don´t want to return, some frightening growth rates on the dark side of digital with ransomware everywhere and nation-state intellectual property theft on a broad level. We therefore have to update and modernize our identity & access programs to meet chose new challenges and enable an agile & composable business. Identity proofing through global identity networks, risk mitigation of a workforce that remains at the home office, and all that within an increasingly complex multi-cloud & hybrid infrastructure.
In this session Martin Kuppinger will provide you with predictions on how IAM will evolve over the years to come and which role decentralized technologies will play.
Identity Fabrics as a concept has established itself as a common paradigm for defining and implementing the identity services needed by organizations to provide seamless, yet secure and controlled access of everyone and everything to every type of service, regardless whether its legacy or shiny & bright SaaS, and regardless of where it runs. Identity Fabrics support the shift-left in IAM thinking from only managing applications to providing a consistent set of identity services for the developers of digital services. Identity Fabrics deliver the integration and control plane required for a modern IAM.
In this panel, the panelists will discuss where Identity Fabrics stand today, how they are implemented in practice, and what to consider for prioritizing services, for picking the right technologies, and for operations, as well as for building an Identity API layer and integrating back to the legacy.
They also will look at whether and where specific variants are needed, such as Consumer Identity Fabrics looking at the CIAM and CDP (Customer Data Platform) use cases.
