Next month’s Cloud Identity Summit 2013 will feature some of the most respected industry analysts covering identity and access management (IAM) in an interactive, engaging three-part session. The “Analyst Insights” presentations will provide unique perspective to enterprise and government organizations navigating the changing IT landscape and understanding the impact of identity in an interconnected world.
“Bringing together some of the most highly-respected identity and access management analysts to hear their perspectives and get a sense of what’s to come is the epitome of what the conference is all about,” said Mark Diodati, conference co-chairperson, Cloud Identity Summit. “Combining the brightest minds, whether vendors or practitioners, analysts or users, to blaze a path forward is what makes this event the identity industry’s independent benchmark for progress.”
The three-part session will include a presentation called "The Good, The Bad, and the Government: Wrangling Attributes in the State of Texas" by Wendy Nather, Research Director, Enterprise Security Practice, 451 Research.
At first, “identities” just meant employees, and then they meant customers and partners. But it’s always been a lot more complicated in government, due to the intersection of roles, context, legal requirements, public information and privacy rights, and a dynamic environment. This presentation will include a real-life case study of the migration from a custom-written, ten-year-old, single sign-on (SSO) portal with nearly 60 applications to a commercial off the shelf (COTS) IAM product.
Also Sally Hudson, Research Director, Security Products and Services, IDC will present "Security's New Normal: Is Cloud the Answer?"
This session will look at cloud benefits and challenges from a security standpoint, and present customer trends and concerns from IDC’s demand side research programs. Special emphasis will be placed on identity issues as they relate to cloud, social and mobile concerns, and how these map to the IT enterprise and its current agendas, policies and budgets.
Finally, "Identity Trends and Transients" will be presented by Eve Maler, Principal Analyst Serving Security and Risk Professionals, Forrester.
What are the bona fide trends in the shifting identity and access landscape? Which are mere shiny objects, destined to fade quickly and leave their fans in IT disappointed? This presentation will take a closer look and help answer these questions.
The “Analyst Insights” presentations will take place Wednesday, July 10 at the Cloud Identity Summit 2013 hosted by Ping Identity at the Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa, California.
