Future trends in sailpoint by Perkins:

Perkins had some good advice for IT: “make it a business decision and remove the passionate and emotional arguments. Then it just becomes a math problem.”

Perkins picked several emerging trends:

Earl Perkins, the Gartner IAM analyst, spoke today at SailPoint’s Navigate conference about the future of the technology. He covered how businesses are evolving to take the best advantage of managing their identity collections.

i. Cloud options are beginning to mature, grow in scale, and become more numerous and varied in their support options too.

ii. Greater support for new mobile identity options is making an increased demand for integrated asset management.

iii. IAM is moving into more analytics and integrating with Big Data approaches. “We still suck at what data we need to collect as we move through the IAM process,” Perkins said during his presentation.

iv. Socialization of data is expanding the various options available to enterprises. He mentioned today’s SEC ruling that allows public companies for the first time to mention news using social media channels.

v. As IAM matures, processes and organizations are finding new uses and it is becoming more mainstream. He did say that part of this maturation is that eventually, the customization demands IAM will decrease.
