In this interconnected, cloud-centric world, the digital identity is empowering for consumers and strategic for businesses. It is with this backdrop that Ping Identity delivers on the promise of next-gen identity -- bringing together external and internal identity management for customer, partner and workforce identity and access management (IAM).
Our collective culture is moving to the cloud, but that does not mean we are turning off the lights on existing infrastructures that companies have built, maintained and integrated over the years. Going forward there will be very few deployments that don't include a cloud component integrated into existing systems. Next-gen identity has to have a uniform management console that brings together cloud and infrastructure componentry.
We live in a world where 'instant on' is barely fast enough and we have to give companies and end-users more "now" experiences. The rise of on-demand is not just as a preference, it also drives how end users want to interact with technology. Soon there will be no grace for complex onboarding and 'getting started' rituals.
We at Ping Identity believe that the next platform for identity will be built on standards that encourage interoperability and a contemporary approach to integration. Identity trends require fluid approaches to identity management that stitch together identity profiles from multiple identity stores and access points.
Ping Identity looks forward to having a conversation about identity and its future. Identity Forward is a forum for this conversation and we encourage your contribution because, while we have strong views about where identity is going, we also adhere to the principle that evolution is only possible through collaborative participation.
