The Business Case for a Platform Approach

Most customers have assembled a collection of Identity Management products over time, as they have reacted to industry regulations, compliance mandates and security threats, typically selecting best of breed products.  The resulting infrastructure is a patchwork of systems that has served the short term IDM goals, but is overly complex, hard to manage and cannot scale to meets the needs of the future social/mobile enterprise.

The solution is to rethink Identity Management as a Platform, rather than individual products. Aberdeen Research has shown that taking a vendor integrated platform approach to Identity Management can reduce cost, make your IT organization more responsive to the needs of a changing business environment, and reduce audit deficiencies. 

View the slide show below to see how companies like Agilent, Cisco, ING Bank and Toyota have all built the business case and embraced the Oracle Identity Management Platform approach.

Derek Brink shares "Worst Practices in IT Security"

Derek Brink is Vice President and Research Fellow in IT Security for the Aberdeen Group.  He has established himself as an IT Security Expert having a long and impressive career with companies and organizations ranging from RSA, Sun, HP, the PKI Forum and the Central Intelligence Agency.  So shouldn't he be talking about "Best Practices in IT Security?"

In his latest blog he talks about the thought processes that drive the wrong behavior, and very cleverly shows how that incorrect thinking exposes weaknesses in our IT environments.

Check out his latest blog post titled: "The Screwtape CISO: Memo #1 (silos, stovepipes and point solutions)"

Customers Talk: 5 Identity Platform Webcasts You Can’t Miss

2011 saw talk of Identity Management emerging from under the shadows of IT to serve the needs of the business. We predict 2012 will see a lot of attention paid to how Identity Management is enabling the business, transforming the way IT is leveraged to meet business objectives.

A common theme among their stories is that Identity Management is not a point solution. Identity Management is a platform of complimentary solutions with a rationalized architecture that can be adopted separately but provide strong interoperability to reduce total cost of ownership. A recent study by Abderdeen noted that organizations who have taken a platform approach can save up to 48%.

Oracle is proud to launch a series of webcasts where we’ll explore the diverse challenges that organizations are facing, and you can hear real customers speak to their specific business objectives and how they leveraged the Identity as a Platform approach to tackle those. In this 5-webcast series, you will hear first-hand from your peers at SaskTel, Agilent, Cisco, ING and Toyota, and learn how leading organizations are rethinking Identity Management as a business versus an IT initiative. You will find that the challenge each of these customers was looking to solve was quite different from each other, yet there is a commonality in their approach to the solution.
