Large increase in attendance at 2008 European Identity Conference

European Identity Conference : 09 June, 2008  (Company News)
Following success of this year's EIC event, organisers announce dates and German venue for the 2009 European Identity Conference
Following the success of the 2nd European Identity Conference (EIC) in April 2008, analyst firm and event organiser Kuppinger Cole (KCP) is pleased to announce that EIC 2009 will take place on May 5 - 8, 2009 in Munich/Germany.

EIC 2008 saw a 25% increase in visitor numbers over EIC 2007, with virtually all of the well-known names in identity management participating as speakers, panellists and exhibitors. EIC 2008 hosted more than 130 speakers, 40 best practice sessions and an evening ceremony which toasted Identity Management Awards winners in six categories plus two special awards.

Among them, in the category 'Best Innovation', the European Identity Award went to a group of companies that are driving forward the process to outsource authentication and authorisation, making it easier to control application security from outside the network. There are several providers with different approaches in this field, but during the past year they all contributed to promote this concept that is considered by KCP as indispensable to making progress with the technical support. The winners in this category were Bitkoo, CA, iSM, Microsoft and Oracle.

"With a truly European look and feel to EIC, attracting interest from participants from 24 different countries, EIC 2009 looks set to be even bigger and better," said Martin Kuppinger, founder and senior partner at KCP. "As well as covering topics such as GRC (Governance, Risk Management, Compliance) and user-centric identity management, EIC also focuses on the integration and interaction of identity management with SOA (Service Oriented Architectures)."

KCP has also released its Market Report GRC 2008 which, for the first time, gives a clear and consistent definition of the market for products which deal with Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance. This new product category integrates several existing products which address the overall GRC threats partially, like attestation, auditing, and role management solutions.

"GRC is the next step, building upon the solutions we see today and integrating them to act as the infrastructure to efficiently address the GRC threats every company is facing today," said Martin Kuppinger. "We observe a clear trend towards a more common functionality of products which started at different edges and now are working on a more and more complete support of GRC requirements."

The report is available for 165 Euro (plus VAT if applicable).
