Successfully implementing an API or adopting cloud computing demands proper Identity and Access Management (IAM). Administration of digital identities requires organizations to possess certain technical and non-technical capabilities. For example, a successful IAM program requires executive sponsorship and a well defined business case. It also requires an understanding that success is a journey not a project; with this outlook, short-term wins needed to obtain support and buy-in will be balanced against long-term strategic goals. Technically speaking, organizations need audit trails to figure out who is using which resource and when. The digital identities of these users need to be verified and the confidence of that verification needs to be used when authorizing access to data. Before this is possible, user accounts must be created in the systems that provide these resources. Once they are, those identities can be propagated across organizational boundaries.
The complexity required to successfully do this increases with the advent of cloud computing. The challenges can feel overwhelming, especially considering that the technical aspects of IAM are easier than the non-technical ones. When setting out on a challenging journey (through the Amazon, the Himalayas, or IAM, e.g.), it is helpful to have an experienced and knowledgeable guide. At Twobo Technologies, this is what we do. We have helped many organizations in many different sectors find their way through the complicated IAM landscape.
