Challenging the Status Quo of IAM

Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions are central to data security strategy, not only your organization’s data but also for your customers identity and assets. When you’re looking for an Identity and Access Management (IAM) platform to cater to your consumers’ journey, there’s no room for compromise. It needs to be scalable, powerful and offer the best user experience through its compatible authentication methods. That whole package isn’t just about the technology, it is about the organization’s capabilities and the people behind the scenes who make it all come together.

You’re not just thinking about now, you’re thinking about next. And thinking about what comes next usually requires looking outside the box to find that added-value, the expertise that could give you the competitive edge.

Let me give you an example to which many will be able to relate:

Let’s say that you are looking to have an expansion built on your home, a major project that requires a skilled contractor. You start looking through contractor profiles, to see their track record and previous customer feedback, and come across a contractor who has a good building track record and architectural education and training. That wasn’t part of your original criteria for your project, yet it feels like this contractor has a competitive edge over others. This additional value offered by the contractor makes you realize that they could possibly be more apt to identify possible structural issues early and resolve them. This contractor is a natural choice with expertise and experience putting them ahead of the competition.

In short, it’s about the extra value and experience that you get from an expert contractor. You realize that it isn’t just about building an expansion; it’s about looking beyond your immediate needs and receiving advice on how to make the most of your space and prevent problems in future to help achieve the what’s next.

How an Experienced IAM Vendor Adds Value to Your Consumer’s Journey

The contractor example above has a lot in common with how you scan through the list of vendors who provide IAM solutions to authenticate your customers. You’re looking for a consumer authentication vendor and partner that provides the flexibility, resilience, capabilities and improvements to match your business ambitions. You are also looking for one that not only can do what you want, but also one that has experience that goes beyond your requirements.
