Look to Open Source Software

Look to open source software for a competitive advantage.

Building a digital business places tremendous strain on legacy identity solutions. Often, these solutions were designed for management of employee identities at small scale. They are inflexible and unable to respond to the constantly evolving needs of a customer-focused digital business. A digital transformation requires systems that can be quickly implemented and constantly evolved to meet changing market requirements.

Commercial open source software offers organizations increased flexibility and transparency as well as more reliable security. With commercial open source software, organizations have visibility into the solution roadmap as well as the opportunity to collaborate with the software vendor to create a shared vision. Even ongoing management is easier because bug fixes, security patches and other customer problems can be resolved more rapidly and collaboratively since everyone can "look under the hood" and examine the source code. For businesses competing in the rapidly evolving digital market place, open source software is a competitive advantage.

As the number of users, cloud services and connected devices grows, businesses must link physical and digital worlds to stay ahead of competitors, and one way to do that is through a process referred to as digital transformation, the application of corporate IT resources to both an organization's employees and its external customer base. This synergy helps to build a digital business that can drive increased revenue by delivering secure, personalized customer experiences across all channels. And the foundation to any digital business strategy begins with an identity and access management (IAM) solution that will not restrain new customer-focused initiatives.

Identity is the key to understanding customers. Unifying the digital identities of people, devices and things across all channels provides businesses with greater insight into a customer's preferences and buying history. Digital businesses that effectively utilize identity can increase revenue and build lasting relationships with customers by creating relevant and timely experiences.

However, undergoing a digital transformation is not easy. To become a successful digital business, organizations must look for an identity platform that empowers them to provide seamless and secure omni-channel user experiences. Daniel Raskin, vice president of strategy at ForgeRock, has identified the top five ways identity can propel your organization's digital transformation.
