IAM Consulting

Your Partner for Digital Identities, Identity Management and Access Management

From the employee login, through the private e-banking access and the registration in online shops all the way to the login for tax returns – digital identities form the basis for many services and digital offerings as well as the protection of applications and data. The technology behind this is developing rapidly. User-friendly login procedures and non-invasive security enable companies to stand out from the market. But this requires a partner with experience who understands that this technology is only a means to an end and not the actual goal.

 

The digital identity, often referred to as login, has a dual function: On the one hand, it serves the user as identification to a system in order to prove his identity. On the other hand, it allows the service provider, respectively the online application, to provide the services in a targeted manner and, in the best case, to invoice them. Both regulatory requirements and commercial considerations play a role for the service provider when using digital identities. As soon as the user can be clearly identified, valuable information about the user's needs and behaviour can be gathered.

A distinction is usually made between identities for customers and identities for employees and partners. For customer identities the abbreviation CIAM (Consumer Identity and Access Management) is used, for employee identities eIDM (Enterprise Identity Management) is used. CIAM and eIDM have a lot in common, but the functionalities and use cases differ so much that products specialized in CIAM or eIDM have established themselves in the market. For CIAM projects, the driver is often the digitalization of the customer interface, sometimes it is also due to regulatory requirements. The aim of eIDM projects is often to improve efficiency and to reduce risk.
