Identity management software gives your company more control over who accesses business applications. It also makes it easier to add or cut off access on the fly. But why is that so difficult?

4 Tips for Successful Identity Management

  • Consider factors such as the ID management software's ability to scale, compatibility with existing applications, and ease of use.
  • Keep in mind business process changes—such as new ways to define access rights for employees—that will accompany the technology, and provide needed training.
  • Get buy-in from business managers by demonstrating the value of identity management systems.
  • Budget sufficient time for project completion, including entering initial information about employees and various access rights.
