a good thing!
Many enterprises are stretching legacy IAM to its breaking point. From longer time to value for new applications and services to the substantial support and maintenance costs of infrastructure requirements, these systems can exhaust IT bandwidth and budgets.
Vendors have stopped investing in older platforms, putting the burden on your team to build and maintain custom integrations. Adding salt to the wound, once a legacy offering reaches end of life (EOL), vendors typically increase support fees while you remain locked in. You’re also left without modern identity features like social login, custom attributes and developer-friendly APIs that enable differentiated digital experiences for customers.
Finding experts to work on legacy IAM products is diifficult and expensive. Even if you have the resources, upgrading legacy systems with codependent stack components is inherently risky. This leaves you vulnerable to the latest threats and attack vectors, and unable to deliver seamless experiences. At the same time, a lack of system maintenance can lead to costly downtime and lost productivity.
Legacy IAM products are inflexible and weren’t built to support the hybrid deployments most modern enterprises require. They can’t bridge between on-premises and cloud-based resources, which limits your deployment and infrastructure architecture options. Lacking support for identity standards and out-of-the-box integrations, you’re left dependent on custom coding for new apps, slowing down your digital business initiatives.
