Good News For IT Audit: IdM R2 PS1
By Naresh Persaud on May 05, 2013
If you have downloaded the latest Identity Management release, then you will find these notes helpful. If you have not downloaded the latest release, you can download it here. This article is the first in a series that will explore new features in the R2 PS1 release. R2 PS1 is the latest release to continue the convergence of the Identity suite. If you are using Identity Manager for provisioning or Identity Analytics for access certification you will like the new converged Identity Auditor feature that provides integrated analytics directly in the provisioning process.
Now provisioning and analytics share a single integrated data model. This is good news for audit and compliance because it insures that the data being certified is as recent as possible. For many organizations, by the time the certification actually takes place, the data being certified may be out of date. By having a single repository, the latest data from the provisioning process is used directly in the certification review. This removes the need for a compensating control.
The integrated data model has the added benefit of close to real time certification which means that changes to user entitlements can automatically trigger certification reviews without any integration necessary. The goal is to reduce the workload of access certification and keep the organization always certified.
