Identity and Access Management is a complex subject. Time and time again we meet customers who have been confused by the dizzying array of solutions out there – solutions from the platform players which claim to solve every identity challenge with a single product all the way to the “best of breed” point players which solve just a single IAM challenge which means you end up managing multiple vendors.
Dell Software understands our customers’ challenges and their desire to get the best of both worlds – top notch products to solve today’s challenge from a vendor they can work with to address their entire identity project – one solution at a time.
Based on this understanding, we have published an ebook which evaluates what IAM for the real world should look like. Authored by Jackson Shaw and Todd Peterson, this six chapter book will be available for download, one chapter at a time.
Available now, the first chapter IAM for the Real World: Simplifying Complexity delves into the most pressing IAM issues faced by virtually every organization and offers actionable, affordable, and sustainable approaches to the challenges you face every day.
