IAM 2021: The Cornerstone of Your Digital Transformation

The COVID-19 pandemic greatly accelerated identity and access management (IAM) trends that were already underway. Every organization is now laser-focused on the drive to digital transformation and the need to adapt to rapid technology, organization and social changes. The crisis has raised the visibility of IAM and has highlighted the challenges ahead for IAM leaders:

  • Delivering more robust and agile authentication and authorization, including a multitude of new digital entities and channels
  • Managing the impact of cloud migration and the fast emergence of multicloud and edge computing
  • Raising the bar on external user experience and consumer IAM
  • Driving IAM standardization and automation

In this sustained period of disruption, IAM sits at the cornerstone of the effort to make businesses secure, agile and resilient. 

At the virtual Gartner Identity & Access Management Summit 2021, May 11 – 12, you will get the latest advice on identity and access technologies and strategies, from multifactor authentication (MFA) and identity governance and administration (IGA), to privileged access management (PAM) and cloud IAM. Make sure you have the tools and insights you need to deliver effective IAM in the new normal.
