Typical workshop agenda

The agenda

The workshop consists of four segments: pre-meeting survey, on-site training, facilitated planning, and post-session reporting. The training portion of the Identity & Access Management Workshop is focused at both business and technical levels.


Pre-meeting Survey

Prior to the workshop, TechVision Research sends brief survey to workshop participants to capture a snapshot of the organization’s overall IAM and related IT environments. Our consultants use this information to tailor the workshop to the existing customer environment and to fast-track the information gathering component of the ‘brainstorming session’ on Day 2.

TechVision Research conducts the facilitated portion of the Identity & Access Management Workshop in a 2-day structured format.


On-site training

Think of the first day of the workshop as an immersion course in IAM.  Whether you are new to the discipline or a seasoned expert you are guaranteed to get something out of the discussions and exercises.

  • Getting to know the room – identify organizational roles and specific interests in IAM
  • Quantifying the business value derived from building IAM systems
  • A Rosetta stone of identity and privacy terminology and technology
  • A deep dive into the TechVision Research Reference Framework for IAM
  • A tour of IAM products and vendors
  • Connecting the dots – integration with other systems and processes
  • Q&A – relating what we’ve learned to what we do
  • Homework assignment

Facilitated planning

Day 2 is where we blend what you learned on day 1, your homework assignment, and the results of the pre-meeting survey. TechVision Research consultants use proven techniques to interactively explore options with the group to drive consensus toward an integrated identity & access management strategy for the enterprise. During this session, the consultants will work with the team to build on the strategy by facilitating the development of a high-level action plan.

  • Participants describe their environments via 20 minute ‘mini presentations’ to the workshop group
  • TechVision Research facilitates the develop a high-level conceptual architecture and strategy
  • Jointly develop an action plan for moving forward
  • Wrap-up

TechVision Research IAM Reference Architecture

TechVision Research is a leading research and consulting firm specializing in identity and access management (IAM). Our consultants’ deep and extensive IAM expertise, based on more than 25 years’ experience, has resulted in the development of the first TechVision Research Reference Architecture for IAM, a tool that provides a comprehensive methodology for assessing requirements and architecting optimal IAM solutions.  This reference architecture is the foundation for our IAM advisory services.


The TechVision Research Reference Architecture for IAM is a master template that identifies the IAM capabilities (rather than technologies) that can be improved or enabled, allowing business stakeholders and technical architects to achieve a common language for IAM functions, which can then be refined over time. ­­­Those capabilities are described at the highest level as:

Interact – how end-users and application developers interact with the IAM platform.

Access – the rules that define the roles, rights, and obligations of any actor wishing to access enterprise assets.

Change – the capability to define and manage the relationships between the user/ application developer and the enterprise assets.

Manage – the capabilities required to manage and upgrade the IAM solution itself.

Measure – the capabilities required to audit and improve IAM activities.

Store – the capabilities required to share identity information and relationships between the components of the IAM solution.
