Gartner: IAM Data + Business Data = Intelligence

Here is more commentary on the 2011 Gartner Summit on Identity and Access Management (IAM).

An article in Computer Weekly asks if "IAM may be headed for a renaissance as organizations find ways to get more value out of these systems by viewing them as an information asset."

That would certainly seem the message of the Gartner analysts quoted in the article.
Joining together data in IAM systems and security logs with other data could be massively valuable to both IT and the business. - James Richardson, BI research director at Gartner
At Veriphyr we agree and our Identity and Access Intelligence Service delivers business intelligence by applying advanced analytics to a combination of data from IAM and core business systems.
"By linking up the wealth of data stored in IAM systems with business data, IT can justify investment in IAM by helping create real business benefit through enabling better decisions based on a wider spread of data." - Earl Perkins, research vice-president at Gartner
Perkins gives the example of how IAM data can connect seemingly anonymous processes to specific individuals and ensure everyone is accountable for their action. This also allows the "business to know 'who is doing what and when' to help understand behaviors and decision-making processes."

Today companies in healthcare, banking, brokerage, gaming, and utilities are enhancing their operations by combining data from IAM and business system to gain insights on their business challenges.
