Who are Gartner experts?

Gartner experts are the people behind the research our clients trust. They extract insights from qualitative and quantitative research, and thousands of client interactions every year. As unbiased leaders in the identity and access management field, Gartner experts serve as conference speakers, attendee mentors and research facilitators. 

Opportunities to interact with IAM experts

In addition to attending any track sessions across the conference agenda, as an attendee, you’re entitled to one Gartner one-on-one meeting, two roundtables and two Ask the Expert sessions for a deeper and more personal dive into particular topics or challenges. View the agenda for a full list of sessions.
