Identity- und Access Management (IAM) Systems are part of IT Strategy in midsize and large businesses for many years now. While features of these systems previously focus on employees and partners, the ‚Internet of Things‘, the new EU General Data Protection Regulation and digitization challenges in a new additional way: Disruption even here!
Modern IAM systems must encounter these challenges with innovative concepts. Additionally to the administration of Identities, there is a new requirement to manage all those elements and ‚Things‘ that might have a relation to the managed person. YIAMSuite© is among the first available systems on market, which meet the requirements by consistent use of ,Entity Relationship' models.
Entity Relationship Management
In an Entity Relationship Management (ERM) system all ,Entities' (or ‚Things‘) and their relations with each other are managed transparently. Entities at this point can be as diverse as the reality: users, departments, organizations, processes, mobile phones, cars and whatever else may play a role.
ERM sytems draw their strength from the ability of deriving processes and calculations by analyzing their relations to other entitities and to represent these processes transparently.
Using Entity-Relations you can therefore enable processes directly on departments, ownership definitions or positions. An explicit and additional role assignment as it is required in classical IDM solutions can be omitted.
Entity Relationship Management opens the doors to the world of Semantics: Business rules can be formulated directly from native language, and are available in machine-readable code from the ERM system without extensive translation.
YIAMSuite© can be used as an extension of your existing Identity Management system to cover missing functions and new demands; as a standalone ERM system, YIAMSuite© allows to efficiently prepare your existing processes for future challenges.
Re-Organizations lose their threatening character
Through consistent focus on relations disruptive challenges and technologies become manageable: organizational changes and adjustments as they are required with mergers and aquisitions can be realized in a few days instead of weeks and months with YIAMSuite©.
