Identity Management and the NBA Playoffs

The usual business drivers used to justfiy Identity Management projects are:

  • Improved Regulatory Compliance
  • Reduced Operational Costs
  • Enhanced Information Security
  • New Business Opportunities

It occurs to me that the first three drivers are like the San Antonio Spurs: deadly efficient, predictable, boring winners. The fourth driver is like the Phoenix Suns: incredibly exciting, up-and-coming, but still seeking the brass ring.

I predict, however, that this fourth driver, New Business Opportunities, like the “new age,” high octance NBA teams, will become the high profile winner before long. I recently gave a presentation entitled, “Identity-Enabled Business” to a group of telecommunications executives. The concept resonated. Today, I was asked back for a repeat performance for another group. Pretty exciting stuff.
