Embarking on Your Identity Governance and Administration Journey?

In today's dynamic landscape, the significance of identity data analytics cannot be underestimated. Your organization recognizes the imperative need for an identity governance and administration (IGA) program, encompassing vital components like access certifications, segregation-of-duties (SoD) management, and compliance reporting.


Three Stages of IAM Maturity



(1) Prior to IGA-deployment

 ☑ Evaluate Current IGA Processes: Conduct a comprehensive assessment of the existing IGA procedures. This examination should identify gaps, bottlenecks, and prevailing issues that inflict organizational distress.

 ☑ Define Future IGA Processes: Collaborate with both IT and business stakeholders to outline your future IGA processes. This ensures alignment of expectations and strategic goals.

☑ Prioritize: Engage key stakeholders to ascertain and prioritize business and security objectives. Establish a roadmap for the phased adoption of the IGA initiative.

☑ Conceptual Architecture Preparation: Create a conceptual architecture that articulates the environment and functional interconnections between the IGA tool and other identity and access management (IAM) technologies, along with their associated target systems.

(2) During the IGA-Deployment

 ☑ Strategic Application Integrations: Utilize the application onboarding factory model to meticulously prioritize and strategize the integration of applications and business units.

☑ Foundational Capabilities Deployment: Commence by implementing foundational capabilities. This includes streamlining the HR onboarding/offboarding process for Joiners, Movers, and Leavers, as well as conducting access recertification.

☑ Demonstration of Value: Opt for a gradual approach by integrating two to three simpler applications. This showcases immediate value and paves the way for larger integrations.

☑ Introduction of IGA to Business Users: Kick off with an initial cycle of an access recertification campaign. This serves as an effective introduction of the IGA program to your business users.
