we have a list of the benefits our customers expect from their Identity Management
Systems, based on the same set of RFPs used for the previous two days’ posts:

  • Improved quality of service to our clients.
  • New users gain faster access to the resources needed to perform their jobs,
    meet their changing needs and keep them satisfied and productive.
  • All users gain better service by the reduction or elimination of errors
  • Faster processing of requests
  • Automation speeds the processing of requests, freeing security administrators
    to spend time on other important activities.
  • Provisioning of client accounts takes minutes rather than days to build.
  • Streamlined operations.
  • Flexible, rule-driven provisioning approach allows routine, yet complex,
    provisioning processes to be automated, improving efficiency and reducing
    the possibility of errors.
  • Information Security support and operating costs are greatly reduced with
    automation, delegation, and self-service features.
  • Implementation of the common processes across multiple accounts will standardize
    and simplify procedures, reducing mistakes and cost.
  • Enable growth with reduced need to increase the size and expertise of the
    account administrative staff.
  • Improved enterprise security with complete visibility into user access
  • Improved ability to automatically detect and react to potential risks.
  • Consistent application and enforcement of security rules.
  • Reduced security costs through task automation.
  • Audit and reporting capabilities.
  • Tighter security controls.
  • Eliminated or reduced duplicate user IDs.
  • Account clean-up or deletion validation across all platforms & applications
    based on single action.

In a nutshell: Improved service, increased productivity, reduced errors, increased
efficiency, improved security, reduced risk, regulatory compliance and growth
