Like any large initiative within a corporation, it is essential to develop an IAM strategy before kicking off IAM projects. Many failed IAM projects are due to inadequate planning, lack of business buy-in and steady support, and poor consideration of existing service impact.
In order to manage the complex IAM solutions, many organizations choose to engage an IAM Managed service team in order to mitigate the risk, optimize the cost and allow the Security Administration team to focus on "True Security Admin Activities".
