Hitachi ID Systems to present webinar on best practices approach to identity management: program vs. project

Free webinar will outline why an IAM system should be managed as a long-term program rather than as discrete projects

CALGARY, Canada, May 24, 2011 /CNW/ - As a leading vendor of identity and access-management systems, Hitachi ID Systems has deep expertise on the specific challenges institutions face in meeting their IAM requirements. A core concern that organizations face when considering IAM deployment is whether to approach implementation as a variety of discrete projects or an integrated long term-program. With a customer list that boasts more than 900 organizations worldwide in a variety of industries, representing over 11 million licensed users of its IAM systems, the company is a strong proponent of a long term, integrated program-based, rather than project-based, approach. In an upcoming webinar, Hitachi ID will present  attendees with the rationale for this approach.

On Thursday, May 26 at 1pm ET, Idan Shoham, CTO, Hitachi ID Systems, will lead a discussion covering where IAM fits in an organization, why it should be permanently staffed, and how to develop a business case to fund a long-running program.

"At Hitachi ID Systems, we encourage our customers to think of their IAM system as a cohesive program, not a project," said Idan Shoham, CTO and cofounder. "They may well have an initial deployment project but, as soon as that's done, they will start their second-phase implementation, then the third-phase, and so on. A successful IAM system is a living process, with new features, integrations, business processes and versions being implemented along the way."
