How a Federated Identity Service Turns Identity into a Business Enabler, Not an IT Bottleneck

Add Agility, Flexibility, and Responsiveness into Your Enterprise

Delivering Identity the Way Your Business Demands It

Business is all about adaptation and change, so being able to easily reorganize people, processes, and resources is essential to productivity and growth. More agile identity management is the key ingredient for the success of your initiatives, from the tactical to the strategic level. Whether you’re adding a business unit, taking advantage of a cloud application, or orchestrating a billion-dollar merger, an agile identity management system is purpose-built to dispatch the right people to the right applications with the adequate privileges, while guaranteeing secure access.

However, actually implementing these changes can mean a host of customization pains, stalled projects, and lost opportunities. In a world of fragmented and distributed identity silos, most identity deployments lead to increased project costs, higher risks, and redundant efforts. Reorganizing, assigning, or reassigning secure access to resources must be done at the speed of your business—not at a stop-and-go pace hindered by ad-hoc and homemade tinkering.

No matter your initiative—extending secure access to newly deployed applications, expanding to the cloud, or reorganizing business units to integrate new populations—each has direct impacts on the identity infrastructure. Depending on your approach, your identity system can represent a major business bottleneck —or, with the right tools, it can help to accelerate the growth in your organization, add in needed agility, and bring new objectives and services within reach.
