Exploring the Value of Identity

Value: “relative worth, merit, or importance”

image I have been intrigued for a long time about the concept of the “Value” of “Identity”.  Consequently, I plan to devote several posts over the next period of time to this subject.  At this point, I don’ t know just what I will write.  I feel like I am entering a new phase of “Discovering Identity.”

Perhaps this train of thought has been triggered by the reality that businesses seek value in each procurement they make – including Identity and Access Management system purchases.  Nearly every customer meeting I have attended recently inevitably gets around to the addressing the need for a solid business case before a purchase can be made.

But I believe the value of Identity goes farther than business cases.  In his song, “Which Way Does that Old Pony Run,” Lyle Lovett reminds us,  “…what’s riches to you just ain’t riches to me …”.  The value placed on anything, including Identity, must be determined by individual people – the stakeholders in a given situation.

So, if you are so inclined to join me, let’s get on the old pony and explore the world of the Value of Identity.  If you have suggestions or ideas, please share them.  It will be a fun ride.
