Aveksa, Inc., the leading provider of Business-Driven Identity and Access Management solutions, today announced key findings from its recent global customer user conferences in Boston and Amsterdam. The conferences, held in late October, featured numerous Aveksa customer and partner representatives who participated in multi-day sessions and workshops focused on sharing their enterprises’ Identity and Access Management vision, roadmap and requirements, while exchanging ideas and industry best practices.
This year’s Aveksa Insights conferences were held at the Marriott Copley Place Hotel in Boston and the ING Business Center in Amsterdam. The conferences took place over two days at each location and consisted of keynote presentations from leading IT research analysts firms such as Forrester and Kuppinger Cole, customer case studies from multiple Aveksa customers and interactive technical workshops led by Aveksa. Topics included customer success with Business-Driven IAM, Actionable Identity Intelligence, Access Request and Access Fulfillment, among many others. During the conferences, attendees were also given detailed insight into Aveksa’s product vision and roadmap with the opportunity to provide direct feedback to the Aveksa team.
As part of the conferences, attendees of Aveksa Insights were asked to review and prioritize their organizations’ key IAM initiatives for 2013. One clear outcome from the surveys and discussions was that organizations are looking for an automated, centralized, next-generation IAM platform to serve as the foundation for meeting their security, compliance and business goals for the next several years. Key requirements that customers indicated were necessary for this platform include:
- Best-in-class Identity Management capabilities that support business user-facing activities such as Access Certification, Policy Management, Role Management and Access Request and Approval
- Integrated support for application and data resources in a unified fashion
- Ability to achieve closed-loop access changes through a cost-effective access change fulfillment solution
- An integrated governance, compliance and fulfillment (provisioning) solution
- Unified support for the hybrid enterprise with an IAM solution that seamlessly handles on-premise, SaaS and mobile applications
- Integration with the broader security landscape, including pre-built integration with Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions, as well as with Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions to operationalize IAM as part of key business processes
In addition to these priorities, customers also expressed a strong interest in increasing the scale of their IAM deployments. This reflects a clear trend toward collecting and analyzing extremely large amounts of identity-related data, as well as the need for increasingly sophisticated security intelligence and analytics solutions.
“The 2012 Insights Conferences in Boston and Amsterdam were great forums for our global customers to come together and exchange IAM best practices based on their implementations of Aveksa’s solutions,” said Vick Viren Vaishnavi, President and CEO of Aveksa. “The polling we did at both conferences provided us with valuable insight into the prioritized initiatives for these enterprises for 2013 and beyond. Given how much we value feedback from our customers, it was very rewarding to see how closely those initiatives mapped to the key product priorities we have targeted for the next 12 months.”

This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

How Best to Integrate Cloud Foundry into Your Existing Ecosystem By @Gidrontxt | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps
As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

[session] From Build to Scale: Lifecycle of Microservices By @fortyfivan | @CloudExpo #Microservices
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

[session] Focusing on Time-to-Value in Big Data Deployments By @AndyWarfield | @BigDataExpo #BigData
As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
