Avatier Calls for Increased User Involvement in Analyst Reporting
New blog suggests more useful analyst reports on IAM solutions can be achieved when customers themselves weigh in on products using dynamic reporting tools.
San Ramon, Calif. (PRWEB) May 09, 2013
Avatier Corp., a leader in risk-driven identity management software, suggests analyst reports on identity and access management (IAM) would benefit from customer input using dynamic reporting tools in its blog “A Call for Dynamic Forrester, IDC and Gartner Analysts’ Identity Management Reports.”
“Many customers invest in an IAM solution based on its rating in analyst reports. But once in production, the customer often finds that a ‘top-rated’ solution falls short in delivering important business criteria in favor of achieving one strategic goal,” said Nelson Cicchitto, chairman and CEO, Avatier. “Analysts that tap into customer feedback via dynamic identity management and access governance reporting tools can offer more useful solution recommendations so that technology decision-makers can select the optimum software solution for their organization.”
Historically, IAM and identity and access governance analysts have based their report findings on static evaluations and static variables. But for today’s organizations, identity management information security itself is not a black-and-white endeavor. Each organization considers its unique business and operational requirements. The IAM solution selected must address corporate policy enforcement, business performance management and IT operations. Therefore, analyst reports would do well to review identity management software product capabilities with more granular ratings for solution capabilities, vendor details, innovation, complexity and so on. Once these ratings are gathered across a large number of criteria, a dynamic reporting tool would enable customers to select and prioritize what is important. With dynamic reporting, intelligent feedback means acceptance ratings adjust accordingly to the business need to provide more useful identity management and access governance product capability assessments.
