Learn how to approach implementation in the IdAM context.

Let’s wrap up what you have learned.

  • We need to have a good understanding of the ‘why’ – why we are implementing or updating our identity and access management system, which is something that factors into our business case.

  • Legal and regulatory constraints and motivators may be part of the business case.

  • It is important to understand ‘where we are’ and ‘where we want to be’ – and to address the gap with a solution.

  • A business case allows management teams to consider whether to sponsor the project. The project will need initial and ongoing support from senior managers.

  • Business, functional, technical and security requirements need defining, testing, and approval to form a specification of work.

  • All solutions proposed need to consider the existing environment and need to consider strategic “fit”.

  • Service availability and other contract-related issues need addressing prior to implementation.

  • Increasingly, solutions generate multi-vendor environments, which needs careful consideration when reviewing support arrangements.
