Digital identities and the open business

Sponsored by

Identity and access management (IAM) systems are today used by the majority of European enterprises. Many of these are still installed on-premise but increasingly they are being supplemented by the use of on-demand IAM services (IAMaaS). The overall uptake represents a big increase from when Quocirca last surveyed the market in 2009. Whilst IAM is important for managing the access rights of increasingly mobile employees, three other major drivers have encouraged businesses to invest despite the tight economic conditions: the opening up of more and more applications to external users, the growing use of cloud based services and the rise of social media. The ultimate aim with all three is to nurture new business processes, thereby finding and exploiting new opportunities This report presents new research into the use and benefits of IAM and the relationship it has with these three drivers. It should be of interest to anyone wanting to better serve all types of users, whilst still keeping control over applications and data.
