Listen to some attendees of the 2014 European IRM Summit and get a feel for what it's like to attend.
IRM: Using Identity to Empower CIOs Everywhere
MIKE ELLIS, CEO, ForgeRock:
Identity and Access Management (IAM) was traditionally designed for internal, perimeter-based enterprises. However, the world has signifi cantly changed. Today’s CIOs and CISOs are being asked to shift investments from lowering operational costs to driving top-line revenue. Solutions must be stateless and link all types of devices, applications and things. In this session we will discuss the new model for identity -- Identity Relationship Management -- and its impact on the modern enterprise.
DEMYSTIFYING – AND BETTER SERVING – THE DIGITAL CITIZEN
JENNIFER BÉLISSENT, Ph.D., Principal Analyst, Serving CIOs and Vendor Strategists, Forrester:
Empowered customers are disrupting every industry, even forcing governments to rise to the increasing expectations of their constituents. It’s the age of the citizen for governments who face a daunting agenda of achieving greater government transparency, increased operational efficiency, and better government service delivery – all the while protecting their citizens’ data and privacy. This keynote will explore the profile of the digital citizen, address government imperatives to better serve and protect the digital citizen.
FUTURE-PROOFING CONSUMER IDENTITY AND ACCESS MANAGEMENT
GREGG KREIZMAN, Research VP, Secure Business Enablement, Gartner:
Your customers are expecting easy frictionless access to your online services from anywhere and from any device, and possibly using digital identities that you don’t manage! These demands create new challenges, and traditional employee-facing identity and access management implementations won’t succeed in this new era. Are you ready to give your business partners and customers a positive experience and will your solution scale and perform well over time? Gregg Kreizman provides an overview of the consumer identity challenges.
DO WE HAVE A ROUND WHEEL YET?
IAN GLAZER, Senior Director, Identity, salesforce.com:
As the old joke goes, why do we keep reinventing the wheel? Because eventually you get a round one. The same holds true for identity standards. Eventually, we get useful, well-adopted identity standards that help enterprises get to where they ultimately need to go: serving their customers, both internal and external. The question is are today’s identity standards “round wheels?” Are our standards up to today’s tasks? More importantly, are these standards ready for the road ahead?
