IBM Security Identity and Access Management

IBM IAM on-prem – IBM Cloud Identity Integration

Compelling reasons to act
1. Shift what’s reasonable to Cloud
2. Do not impact running operations and business

Current situation
1. IBM Security Identity Manager (ISIM) or other on-prem IAM system handles all Identity Lifecycle Management and for some governance / compliance logic ( probably IBM Identity Governance – IBM IGI ).
2. IBM Security Access Manager or similar SAML and OAuth proxies are used for boundary access management and protection.
3. A lot services are already provided by federated partners and SAAS providers, and so FedSSO and SSO, as well as identity management for provisioning and deprovisioning – demand attention.

IBM solutions available ( not all which can suite – are listed )
1. IBM Cloud Identity (CI) portfolio – with Cloud Identity Connect adapters, Cloud Identity Govern adapters and functions, Cloud Identity Verify
2. IBM ISIM – IBM CI adapter
3. IBM CI Service-Now provisioning adapter ( as well as O365 and few more )
4. Service-Now IGI Plugin

Live demo environment is available on IBM Skytap IAM Democenter,
