Everyone has an identity and access management (IAM) project. Whether it’s something as simple as providing authorized access to a new cloud application or something as complex as implementing governance for an entire diverse enterprise with tens-of-thousands of users, hundreds of applications, and a heavy compliance burden, the objectives are the same (delivering access in a manner that preserves security and achieves compliance without disrupting operations). Unfortunately the vast majority of IAM projects under-deliver, end up being off-base once they are complete, worked well for the moment but don’t hold relevance or functionality for the unknown future, or fail outright.
We have seen it all (and helped solve it all). I’ve written a new e-book called Strategies to ensure success for your IAM project that details the common pitfalls faced by most IAM projects. In the book, I’ve identified four main symptoms that may be a good tip-off to a project headed down the wrong path.
In short, a number of factors can get in the way of a successful IAM project:
If any of these ring true to you, I recommend you read the e-book Strategies to ensure success for your IAM project it includes lots of true stories about real organizations that have faced the same challenges and many that have found a way to solve the problems.
And if today’s specific IAM challenge is identity governance, we have another e-book called Governance: The Elusive Last Mile of IAM , that provides details on the most common obstacles to identity governance and strategies to ensure your IAG project is successful
You know you have a project, and if you’re like almost everyone else, you have some of these symptoms, let us help.
