IAM Cloud Migration: The First Step to Digital Transformation
Migrating identity to the cloud as the first step of digital transformation helps organizations to efficiently create a competitive advantage with the ability to meet growing customer demands for digital services.
Why Move IAM to the Cloud?
It’s all about secure and convenient access so the right people can access the right assets across your multi-cloud and hybrid IT environments. Plus, investing in cloud identity pays dividends—you can save millions in infrastructure and admin costs, launch new apps faster and increase efficiency.
Why is Cloud Identity Important?
Identity hosted in on-premises data centers periodically requires infrastructure, security and network updates, which can be cumbersome and time-consuming. Also, the labor costs required for these efforts are often high and hard to find.
Create IT Resiliency
Without Ping’s failover capabilities, if something goes wrong then you’re on your own to bring identity operations back. This can bring your business to a halt by preventing users from logging in, creating a risk that can result in lost revenue and productivity.
Organizations with on-premises data centers often struggle to plan for surges in demand accurately, therefore wasting IT resources, especially during peak times like holiday shopping and tax seasons.
Take Identity to the Cloud
With identity in Ping’s cloud, you’ll secure and control access to resources across all of your domains and platforms—from public and private clouds to legacy on-premises environments. By optimizing your cloud identity, you can remove friction and make security visible only when it’s needed—creating seamless and secure experiences for your employees and customers.
To prepare for uncertain economic times, Gartner recommends to:
“Accelerate movement to the cloud as part of a purposeful digitalization of critical business needs. This shift will enable you to reduce the impact of rising energy costs and become a more nimble, adaptive organization”.
In this report, experts from Gartner break down how “access management has become a source of trust for identity-first security as it provides runtime access control to target applications and services securely and cohesively.” Plus, their suggestions on how “IAM-focused leaders should assess AM tools to bring the “identity as a control surface” vision to life.
“By 2026, Gartner predicts public cloud spending will exceed 45% of all enterprise IT spending, up from less than 17% in 2021”
