James Crawford, Founder & CEOIdentity and Access Management (IAM) is an alarming area of concern for enterprises. The complexities lie around the poor understanding of IAM drivers are an unclear view of the enterprise problems related to them, and a lack of visibility of the big picture. What seems to be the most alarming drawback is the lack of knowledge on who has access to what and how someone is utilizing that access. As today’s enterprises have numerous applications, there is an increasing threat to a company’s overall security and operations. Today, organizations are in dire need of a broader view on how to unlock the true potential of technology investments and a partner who can help them achieve it. CredenceIA Consulting LLC helps its clients resolve issues around missed stakeholders’ goals, cost overruns, benefits realization, and also, the lack of end-user satisfaction. The company specializes in IT strategy, IAM, Identity Governance and Administration (IGA), privilege access management initiatives, and its integration into a strategic roadmap to enhance their clients’ security posture and achieve maturity. “What we bring to the table is the experience, quality, ability to see through identity clutter and the ability to have actionable KRI (Key Risk Indicator)/KPI (Key Performance Indicator), to make timely and proactive business decisions,” states Kunal Mehta, the CEO of CredenceIA.
With enterprises transferring vast amounts of data to the cloud, their security concerns are increasing exponentially along with complexities with user access. Today’s organizations need a partner who can navigate through vanishing lines of user access as it stretches among applications, big data, BYOD needs while keeping in mind factors of cost, time, and efficiency. It is also essential to have a governance body to ensure all key stakeholders have clear visibility of the viewpoints, the priorities of the implementation process, to ensure that all of them are on the same page. CredenceIA Consulting helps meet all these requirements and helps enterprises identify and resolve the missing pieces. The firm showcases IAM as being an on-going venture that continuously helps organizations to address compliance issues and ensure operational excellence through automation and process efficiencies. The unique vetting process, deep domain expertise, and past consulting & implementation experience allow the company in putting together smart strategies and successful execution of engagements within time, budget and with clear benefit realization.
CredenceIA Consulting’s IAM workshops follow a four-step process to assess the challenges faced by their clients, followed by formulating strategies that are focused on the companies’ position in the maturity curve and their goals. Such an analysis helps to create target operating models and advisory services to allow program management and solutions to reach their strategic goals. All this is performed in a very cost-effective and economical manner.
