To meet strategic objectives for growth and business transformation initiatives, more and more enterprises are externalizing key business functions to the Cloud, and to SaaS in particular. But how effectively are enterprises and securing and managing these deployments?
How are your peers doing in managing actual usage and user management, providing end-user support, and extending identity management of external service providers?
In this webinar, Dennis Drogseth, VP, Enterprise Management Associates will discuss the results of a recent survey of more than 100 enterprises. This survey examined their progress towards utilizing security and access control to manage their SaaS deployments, and identified the critical elements required to achieve that goal. The highlights of the research findings include:
- Only 44% of respondents could estimate how many SaaS services their enterprises used
- Only 34% of enterprises believed that they were very successful in optimizing their SaaS deployments
- Almost 60% wanted – but did not have -- a fully integrated system for managing SaaS deployments, including identity management, security information event management (SIEM), usage and response-time monitoring
Covisint will present the best practices – and the pitfalls to avoid – in implementing cloud-based identity-as-a-service (IDaaS) and extending enterprise identity management and service management to the new SaaS-based enterprise. Learn how an identity-based ITSM operational model compliments and extends your existing IT Service Management, and provides a central point for resources management throughout your enterprise, whether it's to newly acquired employees or to your extended business partners.
Register today for this webinar. All attendees receive a complimentary copy of the EMA report sponsored by Covisint, “Taking Control of Your SaaS Investments with Integrated Access Management and Usage Awareness: an EMA Analysis.”
