Standardizing IAM business processes
Hitachi ID Systems offers multiple editions of Hitachi ID Identity Express -- each of which is a reference implementation of the Hitachi ID Bravura Security Fabric for a specific type of organization and feature set.
The objective of Identity Express is to minimize the time, cost and risk of Identity and access management (IAM) system deployment. Instead of spending months with consultants to document existing processes, adjust them and then implement automation on a "clean slate" system, Hitachi ID recommends discarding old, inefficient processes, adopting best practices and implementing a full set of IAM processes in just a few days. Identity Express can reduce the total cost of IAM system deployment by 80% to 90%.
Identity Express does not limit the functionality deployed by organizations. Rather, an organization starts with Identity Express to achieve positive results quickly and then prioritizes what product features and integrations, which may not yet be incorporated into Identity Express configuration, to deploy next.
Benefits of Identity Express
Replacing legacy IAM processes with Identity Express has the following advantages over custom IAM implementations:
- Optimized IAM processes: The business processes codified in Identity Express have been optimized for fast service and robust internal controls, improving on the legacy processes in most organizations.
- Complete functionality: When implementing a custom IAM system, organizations can only automate one or two processes at a time. Most start with onboarding, deactivation or access reviews and only later automate transfers, leaves of absence, name changes, rehire detection, etc. In contrast, Identity Express allows organizations to automate a comprehensive set of identity lifecycle processes up front.
- Efficient implementation: By adopting a pre-configured set of processes and policies, organizations minimize deployment risk, reduce implementation cost and shorten time to value.
