In the dark, eerie corners of the IT world, a ghostly figure looms large – the phantom of failed IGA projects. With a spine-chilling 70% failure rate, as whispered by the crypt-keepers at IBM (IBM’s Book of Dark Arts), this specter leaves organizations trembling in fear of security breaches and non-compliance nightmares. But fear not, for Readibots is here with its potion of solutions to banish these ghouls!

The Cursed Challenges of Traditional IGA

 The Restructuring Ritual: Many IGA platforms cast a spell, forcing companies to dance to their haunting tune. This disruptive dance can lead to resistance from the living and the undead alike.

The Ghosts of Legacy Systems: Traditional IGA solutions often turn a blind eye to the spirits of legacy on-prem systems, leaving a graveyard of exposures.

The Cloud/On-Prem Conundrum: Organizations are often trapped in a witch’s dilemma: to choose the cloud or to remain on-prem. This binary brew can spell doom, especially if the organization’s needs shift like shadows in the night.

The Petrifying Lack of Flexibility: Organizations are like werewolves, constantly changing with the moon. The IGA solution must transform with them, or risk being left in the dark.

The IT Staff’s Labyrinth of Despair: Many IGA solutions conjure tasks, sending them to the service desk’s underworld. Without magical automation, IT staff can become lost souls, overwhelmed by manual tasks.

The Terrifying Tales of Ignoring Modern Identity Management

Without a modern IAM potion, businesses can face a haunted path:

potion

The Time-Consuming Curse: Manual IAM processes can drain the life out of any organization.

potion

The Labyrinth of Poor User Experiences: Without a guiding light, user experiences can become a maze of horrors.

potion

The Skill Gap Specter: Organizations might lack the magical skills needed to deploy modern IAM solutions.

potion

The Dungeon of Technical Debt: Monolithic customizations can trap organizations in a never-ending cycle of debt.

potion

The Zombie Apocalypse of Reduced Innovation: Without the right IAM elixir, employees might become innovation zombies.

Moreover, the cauldron bubbles with rising costs, especially for enterprises lacking a modern IAM spell book. The 2020 Ponemon Book of Shadows reveals that the most fearsome insider threat is the theft of credentials. These dark incidents have risen from the grave, with the average cost of each curse reaching a blood-curdling $871K+ in 2019 (2020 Ponemon’s Book of Shadows).

The Bewitching Benefits of Modern IAM

In the haunted library of IBM, a forbidden tome by Forrester Consulting (Forrester’s Forbidden Tomes) unveils the ROI of a modern IAM potion:

potion

86% reduction in costs to onboard an IAM spell onto the public cloud.

potion

$1.9M three-year treasure trove of labor cost savings.

potion

96% reduction in the hours spent chanting maintenance spells for IAM software and hardware.

potion

$323K three-year value of time saved from the clutches of the underworld.
