The Future of Identity Management (2021-2026)
Doug Simmons – Principal Consulting Analyst
Gary Rowe – CEO, Principal Consulting Analyst
2020 saw the Digital Enterprise advance from an aspirational goal to a means of survival in many large enterprises. The transformation was thrust upon us by the pandemic, but it is on-going and pervasive. This sudden survival-based digital acceleration has often put Information Security and Identity Management on the back burner. Identity and Access Management (IAM) is the cornerstone of moving from a Digital Enterprise to a safe and secure Digital Enterprise. 2020 was a year in which most organizations were tested; 2021 and beyond should leverage the lessons learned in developing a sustainable IAM foundation.
This highly actionable report is designed to support enterprise technology infrastructure and support the vision organizations have for a secure and manageable digital future. While TechVision’s Analyst team believes the events of 2020 will forever change the digital landscape, we also believe it is important to not overreact to our “new normal”.
We’ll net this out with specific projections as to where we believe IAM will and should be going over the next five years and describe a model for identity abstraction that moves IAM towards being a pervasive “utility”. We include newer disruptive models such as DevOps/ microservices in identity systems, cloud-based IAM, Decentralized Identity leveraging Blockchain, IoT support and traditional areas of focus such as IAM support for privacy/data protection regulations, and updated governance and provisioning models.
This report includes our updated and prioritized TechVision Research “Top Twelve List” of the key areas to focus on as you develop your IAM strategies, architectures and roadmaps. We’ll also give you our perspective of the maturity and progression for each key area.
