IDAM is a Critical Capability:

Identity and Access Management (IDAM) is a critical capability for organizations in today’s highly interconnected digital landscape. The increasing complexity of the cyber ecosystem, coupled with the growing reliance on technology and the internet, has made information security a top priority for businesses worldwide. IDAM systems provide a robust and dynamic framework for controlling user resource access, ensuring data protection and regulatory compliance.

One of the primary reasons IDAM is crucial is to prevent unauthorized access. Implementing strong access controls has become essential, with cyber threats becoming more sophisticated. A modern IDAM system provides granular control over permissions, enabling organizations to manage user access and privileges precisely. This helps prevent security breaches and ensures users have access to the resources they need to perform their jobs efficiently.

Moreover, organizations are subject to stringent regulatory requirements, such as GDPR, HIPAA, and PCI-DSS, that mandate proper identity management and data protection. The latest IDAM technologies enable companies to comply with these regulations by providing secure and traceable access management solutions, thereby minimizing the risk of non-compliance penalties.

Another compelling reason for companies to migrate to the latest IDAM technologies is the growing prevalence of remote work and the use of mobile devices. Advanced IDAM solutions offer seamless integration of these devices into a company’s infrastructure, allowing for secure access from any location while maintaining the system’s integrity.

The critical nature of Identity and Access Management cannot be understated. Companies must adopt the latest IDAM technologies to protect their digital assets, meet regulatory compliance, and adapt to the ever-evolving landscape of cyber threats and remote work. Failure to do so may result in costly breaches, damaged reputations, and significant financial losses.

To transform the IDAM to meet the challenges of today, a roadmap enabled by a capability map will stand enterprises in good stead. The Identity and Access Management capabilities map can help companies create a structurally sound and internally coherent roadmap.

IDAM Capabilities Model Deliverables:

The Identity and Access Management Capabilities Model includes ~145 capabilities and consists of the following artifacts:

  • An Excel spreadsheet with a grouping of capabilities.
  • A PowerPoint format with the top two levels presented in a nested visualization.
  • A Word document with capabilities in a multilevel list format.
  • IDAM Capability KPIs (at level 2)
  • IDAM Capability Definitions (at level 3)
  • Plus, bonus files.

What the IDAM Capabilities Model is NOT: The Identity and Access Management Capability Model is NOT a list of all IDAM technologies, even though it includes vital technology areas. It does NOT comprise architectural views, and it is not a representation of the complete tech stack. Instead, it is a framework of crucial IDAM functional areas and decomposes the activities in the IDAM value chain.

Value and Uses of the IDAM Capabilities Model

A capabilities map is a fundamental and foundational entity in the business architecture continuum. An IDAM Capabilities List encapsulates end-to-end aspects of the identity and access management functions with a detailed, multilevel capabilities list. It is about managing the business of access security and controlling it.

There are several benefits of leveraging an Identity and Access Management Capabilities Model:

  • Gain a holistic perspective of what identity and access management capabilities are necessary for an enterprise.
  • Conduct a maturity assessment of the IDAM platform and develop a roadmap to achieve the desired state.
  • Create a RACI matrix to assign roles and responsibilities and build accountability.
  • Set up a lightweight governance structure to help oversee and attain functional excellence.

Created by inputs from security architects and business architecture domain experts, the identity and access management capability model is detailed, in-depth, and conforms to the construct of MECE (mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive).

Product FAQs:

Can I see a Sample Deliverable?

We are sorry, but we cannot send or show sample deliverables. There are two reasons: A) The deliverables are our intellectual property, and we cannot share the same. B) While you may be a genuine buyer, our experience in the past has not been great with too many browsers and not many buyers. We believe the depth of the information in the product description and the snippets we provide are sufficient to understand the scope and quality of our products.

When can I access my deliverables?

We process each transaction manually and hence, processing a deliverable may take anywhere from a few minutes to up to a day. The reason is to ensure appropriate licensing and also validating the deliverables.

Where can I access my deliverables?

Your best bet is to log in to the portal and download the products from the included links. The links do not expire.

Are there any restrictions on Downloads?

Yes. You can only download the products three times. We believe that is sufficient for any genuine usage situation. Of course, once you download, you can save electronic copies to your computer or a cloud drive.

Can I share or sell the deliverables with anyone?

You can share the deliverables within a company for proper use. You cannot share the deliverables outside your company. Selling or giving away free is prohibited, as well.

Can we talk to you on the phone?

Not generally. Compared to our professional services fee, the price of our products is a fraction of what we charge for custom work. Hence, our business model does not support pre-sales support.

Do you offer orientation or support to understand and use your deliverables?

Yes, for a separate fee. You can hire our consultants for remote help and in some cases for onsite assistance. Please Contact Us.
