Legacy WAM Systems Delay Digital Transformation Efforts
As your enterprise digitally transforms, adding modern applications, APIs and deployment models that stretch far beyond the firewall, the clock is ticking for your legacy WAM system. It was built for on-premises users accessing on-premises applications, not for authorizing access to modern resources like mobile apps, Single Page Apps (SPAs), cloud-based SaaS apps, APIs, and whatever is coming next. The cost to upgrade and maintain the managed chaos of proprietary connections to legacy applications is going up each year as outdated system expertise becomes more scarce and vendors raise end-of-life support fees over time. And ultimately, when your system isn’t built on open standards, coding and maintaining custom, proprietary integrations is an increasing burden on your team, and is not sustainable over time.
Even if you’ve come to the realization that your current system isn’t sustainable, however, updating your identity infrastructure isn’t simple. It requires the expertise, tools and processes to modernize your infrastructure while avoiding disruption. You’ll need the right path forward, one that provides the long-term agility and security that your enterprise requires.
