Enhance Business Outcomes, Efficiency and Security through IAM

IAM remains a key security, risk management and business discipline, ensuring that the right people get access to the right resources at the right times for the right reasons, enabling the right business outcomes. But orchestrating all this efficiently and effectively – and delivering real business value – becomes increasing difficult as IAM extends to a greater variety of users within and without the enterprise, to a greater variety of endpoints and applications, largely driven by the Nexus of Forces.

The 2014 IAM Summit will present the strategic trends that will shape enterprises' IAM vision over the next six years, as well as actionable advice that equips leaders and practitioners to deal with today's challenges, business agility and profitability; regulatory compliance, accountability and transparency; and the Nexus of Forces itself.
