Business Drivers for Identity Management
The rising importance of Information Security
Security audits: Operations must be able to demonstrate the ability to control, audit and report on what users have access to Legislative compliance: HIPAA, Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Sarbanes Oxley, 21 CFR Part 11, European Data Protection Directive, etc.

The increasing amount of change in enterprise environments
Acquisitions, divestitures, reorganizations, workforce reductions

The growing need to control costs “Do more with Less”
Recurring charges for non-digital resources that were not deprovisioned Spiraling help desk costs for password resets

Provisioning Challenges
Fragmented, Manual and Insecure
