Take the right approach to IAM deployment

The digital transformation we have been witnessing in recent times is now under everyone's eyes.
Many of the business processes are impacted by this revolution, accordingly, even IAM services must keep up with it, in rapid evolution.

Responsible IAM security and risk management leaders must meet these expectations but the real question is, are traditional methods still a valid approach to meet the new requirements of business initiatives?


While in the past the waterfall approach has been used successfully for the vast majority of traditional IAM projects, today it risk to be too slow to cope with the new business needs. Conversely, an Agile approach, by nature flexible and light, would seem to be much more suitable in these cases.

Gartner recommends* to the IAM leaders to deliver effective identity and access management capabilities:

  • Adopt DevOps and agile approaches for IAM services to support digital initiatives, as well as to augment and support traditional development.

  • Assimilate DevOps and agile knowledge and practices by forming and empowering agile teams, recognizing business priorities, and encouraging ways of working that are more responsive to business initiatives.

  • Engage business representatives to contribute and advise project and development teams to ensure the accuracy and efficacy of agile initiatives.
