An Identity Fabric Program program moves beyond established tooling and focuses on outcomes and the elimination of technical debt or heavy customizations that hinder the organization’s ability to deploy at scale. Identity Fabrics shift the focus from tactical or manual operations to more strategic functions that are optimized to business objectives. Identity Fabrics are key to successful digital transformations and therefore a sustainable deployment strategy will deliver recognized business value and a significant competitive advantage.
IDaaS, the SaaS-delivered IAM, helps organizations releasing themselves from a considerable part of the burden that IAM brings. They don’t need to care for software installation and running servers. However, IDaaS is only part of the answer here. Customers still must managed and run their IAM environment.
This is where MSPs (Managed Service Providers) and their services come in . They help the organizations in managing major parts of IAM, from onboarding of systems to customization and configuration, but also for a good share of the business-oriented aspects.
MSPs also can help organizations in providing a real IDaaS in the sense of customers/tenants just ordering services, without even caring about the technology below. They buy the services delivered by an Identity Fabric that is built and run by their service provider (which then again might rely on one or more SaaS services).
In this panel, we will discuss how such a “managed Identity Fabric” can look like and what this means to both the MSPs and their tenants. We’ll specifically focus on what distincts such a managed Identity Fabric from just a standard IDaaS offering, and from a MSP operating the IAM the customer already has in place. We’ll discuss the main criteria and capabilities for selecting the managed Identity Fabric.
