To Build or Buy? Evaluating Identity Management Options

August 23, 2018
10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. UK Time

The pros and cons of identity management solutions, from in-house software development to buying commercial off-the-shelf

Customer identities are at the center of every company’s digital transformation, and the personal data associated with them are among the most critical and valuable assets of any enterprise. To manage these assets, large enterprises rely on customer identity and access management (CIAM).

Join Janrain Director of Product Marketing Sven Dummer, CTO Darryl Nicholson and Director of Operations Chris Collins who will compare the two basic implementation options for CIAM: in-house development or buying a dedicated solution from a vendor. Different options are considered from the perspective of “build vs. buy” – such as on-premises implementations; colocation; and private, public or hybrid cloud environments.

In this 60-minute webinar, you will learn:

  • The pros and cons of in-house software development versus commercial off-the-shelf solutions
  • How to determine what the best choice for your company’s goals, needs, budgets, staff, and overall sanity
  • Critical features of a cohesive identity management solution
  • Often overlooked areas that lead to an underestimation of the complexity and efforts, like regulatory compliance, global availability, performance, or business continuity

Who should attend this webinar?

Decision makers in both technical and non-technical roles who need to make informed decisions on how to best implement customer identity and access management in their organization.
