I'd like to present a case where I postulate what needs justify introducing a third party IAM og IGA solution, and when the current state of the Microsoft identity (Azure AD/Entra) platform is likely to cover the needs of an organization.
In my presentation I will primarily explore the needs of the SMB organization and to some degree a less complex MLE organization and try to assist decision makers in navigating the often difficult task of deciding if what you have is good enough.
As an identity professional, you're constantly studying and reviewing new technologies, new protocols, and new products within the space but you struggle for the best way to extract the value of these new shiny, items to benefit your organization. You've been told that a well-developed identity architecture plan is the best way solve business challenges and produce concrete results but your research and fully-notated diagrams have failed to engage your peers.
KuppingerCole conducted a series of polls over the past months, gathering data about the state and future of IAM. Together with the ongoing market sizing analysis and predictions of the KuppingerCole analysts, we’ve created a study providing insight into our assessment of the current state of the IAM market as well as where we see the market evolving. Martin Kuppinger, Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole Analysts, and Marina Iantorno, Analyst at KuppingerCole Analysts, will present selected results from that study and share their perspectives on the evolution of the IAM market.
