Many organisations have a heterogeneous system landscape which uses a number of different access right concepts. The goal of all these concepts is to provide users with those access rights on resources they need to fulfil their work. Based on the high number of users and resources to protect in large organisations, the administration of these access rights can be quite complex and time consuming. Here access intelligence comes into the play.
An investment decision for an Identity Management solution is not based on a “need-to-have” perception, but is increasingly oriented towards measurable IAM benefits: an increase in security levels and in the efficiency of identity administration.
The term “Identity and Access Management” (IAM) includes all aspects of the administration of digital identities. This is initially an infrastructure task which is indispensable to the proper functioning of an organization. It is also a management task, since these activities affect data security and the efficiency of business processes.
