Exploding IT infrastructure costs are fueling the fast-growing marketplace for software-as-a-service (SaaS) as an alternative to traditional software. Chief amongst the IT infrastructure costs targeted by SaaS are large expenses for custom code integration and support to deploy and operate enterprise identity software.
The economic benefits of SaaS grab most of the attention. However, SaaS delivers benefits beyond financial. Cloud-based identity offers breakthrough capabilities simply not available as software regardless of price. Further, due to the evolution of the technology landscape, a new cloud-native architecture is required to manage identity. A cloud-native architecture is one that does not rely on plug-ins, agents, federation kits or software of any kind to be installed and run on third-party SaaS providers’ servers.
