In some studies, enterprises are spending up to 60% of their IT budgets on operational costs thus impacting the available budget to spend on innovation. The challenge we all face in the identity and IT departments is how to get the most out of our existing licenses and reduce cost where possible in delivering IT projects. One of the costly areas of projects is getting at identity data when it lives in legacy applications. This is especially true when you look at Federation projects, mergers and acquisitions or in data center consolidation projects.
If you are running a Federation project and have to access identity data in legacy or disparate data sources and feel like you are herding cats then this webcast is for you! Virtual directories provide a critical tool for Federation projects as they allow you to expose identity attributes without changing code in legacy applications. Additionally, you have control over how the data is accessed allowing you to manage sensitive service level agreements which can cause difficult political battles in organizations when discussing access.
If you have worked on a data center consolidation project either driven by a merger, acquisition or as part of a cost control exercise you need to have a full bag of tools. The tools you bring to the project provide the critical agility needed to meet time-lines but also to minimize impact on business operations. Virtual Directories allow you the ability to connect to data sources without having to alter the application code. This reduces resource requirements, increases speed but most importantly maximizes business continuity.
Register here for this webinar and we will look at ways virtual directories can help you become an identity hero in your organization.
