Since the late 1990s, provisioning systems have provided an automated means for user administration and user lifecycle management. Unfortunately, these decade-old technologies have not kept up with changing customer requirements, leaving serious gaps in their ability to address more stringent regulatory environments and ensure conformance to corporate policy. These gaps make it difficult for legacy provisioning systems to meet governance and compliance requirements and can lead to costly inefficiencies, failed audits and increased risk of inappropriate access to critical IT systems and applications.
Organizations simply cannot assume that yesterday’s provisioning technologies are the answer to today’s identity governance requirements. This white paper explains why legacy provisioning solutions cannot meet the new user lifecycle management and governance challenges of today’s global organizations. It also discusses a new strategic and more sustainable approach offered by the next generation of provisioning solutions built on an identity governance foundation.
With legacy provisioning solutions unable to address today’s stringent security and compliance demands, enterprises are demanding a better way. This paper introduces a next generation of provisioning solutions that offer a more strategic and sustainable approach.
