IAM is too often seen as a technical topic that cost organisations only money… The reverse is true, it should be seen as a key enabler!
Of course there is IAM purely for security and compliance reasons. Organisations that master eIdentities can provide controlled access to their services/data in a controlled way. How to provide access to an ever increasing number of online applications in a distributed and cloud-based environment? Luckily we now have solutions like federation, single-sign-on and trusted online e-Identities.
If that is not enough we are now facing the booming of the API-economy and the integration of services via APIs. This in combination with GDPR poses the additional challenge that organisations must be able to ensure only authorized /consented access is being given… forcing organisations to integrate access controls into their APIs.
In addition to all the above additional aspects come to play like role management, IAM governance, auditing/attestations, data loss prevention, etc.
