KuppingerCole Ltd., an international and independent analyst organization with a strong focus on Information Security, Identity and Access Management as well as all areas concerning the Digital Transformation, together with CXP Group, an independent European research and advisory firm in the field of digital, software and IT services – have conducted a joint survey on the current state of Identity and Access Management in organizations on our behalf.

It is mandatory for organizations to move forward in their IAM strategies

The majority of organizations has a Digital Transformation strategy defined, even while there still seems to be a gap in both maturity of such strategies and their internal communication. More than 85 % of the respondents of this survey rate a mature Identity & Access Management (IAM) strategy as highly important for succeeding in the Digital Transformation. This proves the relevance of IAM for business success.

However, while the need for IAM is well understood, the reality is that most organizations still have a long way to go, for both managing consumer identities and for implementing the solid foundation of an internal IAM framework that ensures the protection of sensitive and valuable data.

The combination of new regulations, such as the upcoming EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and the need to open existing infrastructures for new groups of users – the consumers – as well as new types of (consumer-facing) applications increase the requirement for building on a strong foundation in Enterprise IAM.
