People are the core asset of most organisations, and to ensure people productivity is a critical success factor. People need to interact with multiple enterprise systems and this drives the need for a system to inform IT about what individuals can access.
Most organisations have multiple IT systems that require users to have access, to be authorised and to be authenticated. At the heart of a well constructed enterprise architecture is a robust identity management system. Centralising identity has long been recognised as the most effective store for user data and information about the people accessing your systems.
Various systems require different access methods. A robust identity management framework will allow all addressing requirements to be handled in a holistic manner with a single representation.
Cost of proprietary systems are not insignificant, and usually entail recurring licensing fees. In an environment of constant budget reviews, introducing stability in a cost effective manner to something as fundamental as identity management is critical.
