Sr. Product Marketing Manager

Today marks the final installment of our series on building a case for modernizing legacy identity and access management (IAM) systems. As outdated server outages become increasingly common and the time spent fixing them grows proportionately, a strong business case is more important than ever.


We put together this three-part series to help busy IAM professionals convince others in their organizations of what they already know is true: a modern IAM solution can cost-effectively and efficiently solve the problems created by legacy IAM systems.


In part one, we discussed the many benefits of modern access security. Part two focused on the reasons to migrate to cloud-deployed, adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA) from legacy 2FA. Our third and final release supports consolidating identities from legacy silos into a modern directory solution.


In this guide, you'll learn why smart organizations are making the move. You'll discover the capabilities you need from a modern directory solution and how it will benefit key stakeholders throughout your organization, including:


  • Improving performance to all applications and APIs reliant on identity data
  • Enhancing the security of your employee, partner and customer identity data
  • Drastically lowering the total cost of ownership of your identity infrastructure


If you want to make a business case for consolidating disparate silos of identity data from legacy LDAP servers, Oracle (SUN) DSEE, Novell E-Directory, Active Directory or homegrown solutions, you'll find the justification you need in Building the Business Case for Consolidating Identities with a Modern Directory Solution.
