The multi-cloud moment is here and its promise is clear. Yet, because identity management becomes the focal point before, during, and after cloud migration, multi-cloud also creates an identity crisis. A recent Forrester Research study revealed that managing identities between clouds is the biggest challenge for 78% of respondents.

The new reality with IAM requires a new approach. Like a mid-life crisis, gripping the old way of doing things won’t help (neither will buying a red sports car).

Join Strata Identity’s CEO and a select group of industry peers as they discuss current challenges, emerging issues, and lessons learned to thrive in a multi-cloud world. Key takeaways:

  • How the shift to a distributed identity model has impacted organizations (on-premises, public cloud/hybrid cloud)
  • What are some of the paths to embrace an identity modernization strategy
  • Why organizations need to find new ways to secure their critical applications without disturbing their users
  • What are the some of the newest tools and technologies out there that can help facilitate such transition

Modern applications must be responsive, scalable, available, and flexible to deliver an exceptional user experience – cloud to edge. Distributed cloud data platforms address the dynamics of changing user behavior by providing the foundation for mobile integration, analytical processing, and the rapid evolution of microservices. We’ll talk about how companies like Louis Vuitton and Emirates are leading their field with modern applications.

Key Takeaways:

  • The ability to run anywhere, from the cloud to the edge
  • Are responsive, scalable, and highly available
  • Are flexible to evolve rapidly
  • Deliver a more personalized experience based on behavior and interactions
  • More device-aware, both interactions (mobile) and monitoring (IoT)
