Cloud computing offers economies of scale and massive business agility; no wonder so many organizations are racing to embrace it! Just how much power and agility you get from the cloud depends on the current state of your IT infrastructure.
If your identity information is not well organized, deploying cloud apps with appropriate access can be troublesome. Organizations with difficulties managing entitlements or with a complex IT infrastructure such as a multi-forest Active Directory (AD), could find cloud preparation tricky. There may be security problems or difficulty in meeting governance, risk and compliance (GRC) reporting requirements.
You can prepare yourself for the cloud by having clean, reliable and valid user identity data. This can be achieved with a solid, future-proofed identity management platform. It will make moving to the cloud simpler, faster and smoother, reduce administration, enhance security, make GRC reporting easier and increase business agility.
