Identity & Access Management (IAM / IdAM) Programs

IAM / IdAM / Single Sign-On (SSO) / Privileged Access Management (PAM) / Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) / Identity Providers (IdP) / Identity Federation are all part of a program that enterprises should focus on these days.  And, these programs need to be able to extend to multiple technologies: cloud, mobile, IoT, ERP, etc.

However, these endeavors are treated as one-offs. 

As organizations wrestle with business transactions (merges, acquisitions, divestitures), the need to have a formal, organized IAM / IdAM program grows in need.
