There are many different vendors in the rapidly evolving identity and access management market (IAM). For security and risk management leaders who are selecting an IAM solution, this can pose a significant challenge when evaluating the appropriate technology for their organization. To help IAM professionals better understand the business and technology impact of selecting a new solution, Gartner has created a “Buyer’s Guide for Choosing an IAM Solution”.

Download the report to learn the five-step approach to structuring your evaluation process and negotiating the best price.

Gartner recommendations for IAM buyers include:

  • Plan for the long term by assessing global IAM trends to uncover upcoming needs and impacts on your requirements.
  • Identify other technology options that may provide attractive alternatives by evaluating how adjacent technologies and open source fit into the organization's overall IAM architecture.
  • Leverage Gartner research to help find initial candidates, but not in lieu of completing your own research.
“Sixty-three percent of respondents to a Gartner survey on IAM technologies from September 2016 indicated that they plan to replace at least one IAM technology within two years.” *
