How to get fit for an IAM implementation

What you need to do before you start an IAM implementation

Fit for an IAM implementation

How to get fit for an IAM implementation

There are several measures you can and should take to prepare for the successful, efficient and on-target IAM implementation. The more carefully such a project is planned, the smoother and simpler the actual implementation will turn out.

Many IAM projects end up exceeding the planned time and budget many times over. The possible reasons are manifold, but generally not only the system provider is to blame – instead, more likely than not, the project preparation and definition of the required specialist concepts was also flawed.

Observations on the Role Life-Cycle

Dynamic organisations need to consider role life-cycle models

The main goals that companies want to achieve in security administration are enhanced security at a low cost, while coping with the challenges of an increasingly complex IT environment. A high level of security is important to prevent possible losses through fraud and unauthorised disclosure of confidential information. Internal audits often encounter severe security weaknesses which oblige the IT security department to take appropriate countermeasures.

An increasingly dynamic economy is an additional challenge within this context. The most important issues here are the rapid growth of companies, large-scale mergers, the ubiquity of the internet and continuous organisational change.

As most companies intensify their business of the internet, they are dealing with very large numbers of users.

How do you do an IAM cost calculation?
