Business Requirements Analysis
Understanding the needs of your organisation, and being able to translate that understanding into key business requirements, is an essential step in a successful IAM implementation.
By engaging Identity Specialists to assist in developing your business requirements, your organisation will receive actionable, measurable and testable documentation, at a level of detail suitable for IAM system design.
Business Requirements Come First
A mistake often made when looking to adopt IAM is to attempt to finalise technical requirements before the actual business requirements are fully understood, and this often leads to significant wastage of effort and time.
Gaining a broader awareness of the key business pains affecting your organisation will allow Identity Specialists to identify a set of overall requirements which, when implemented, will provide a solution that meets the needs of your entire organisation, rather than just providing a band-aid solutions to specific problems.
No More Like for Like: Business Process Reengineering
Another common mistake within most IAM deployments is to create ‘like for like’ solutions, which simply shift an existing process into IAM without looking at how that process can be reengineered to take advantage of the full power that IAM offers.
An in-depth business analysis can often expose areas where existing processes can be improved to further streamline business operations. This can include automating and simplifying existing workflows, removing reliance on paper-based systems and even combining processes from different business units to minimise repetitive overheads.
