The term “Identity Fabrics” stands for a paradigm and concept of a comprehensive and integrated set of Identity Services, delivering the capabilities required for providing seamless and controlled access for everyone to every service. Identity Fabrics support various types of identities such as employees, partners, consumers, or things. They deliver the full range of identity services required by an organization.
Identity Fabrics are not necessarily based on a technology, tool, or cloud service, but a paradigm for architecting IAM within enterprises. Commonly, the services are provided by a combination of several tools and services, with up to three solutions forming the core of the Identity Fabric. Most organizations that are using this paradigm as a foundation for the evolution of their overall IAM tend to build on a strong core platform for delivering major features and complementing this by other solutions.
We will look at what must be in every Identity Fabric, and how to evolve from a foundational Identity Fabrics approach towards a higher level of maturity. The session will look at concrete capabilities per maturity level and service group within Identity Fabrics.
