Vendor Consolidation Leads to Fierce Competition in Identity and Access Management Market , Says IDC

  • 27 November, 2006 15:40

<p>NORTH SYDNEY, 27th November 2006 - 2005 was a year of vendor consolidation and product road maps, as a result, many strong suite vendors have emerged in the Identity and Access Management (IAM) Market. With so many large and capable suite vendors pushing their integrated suite offerings, IDC expects that competition will be fierce for all vendors. Overall, these developments are expected to create more fighting around tenders, better solutions for customers, and slightly moderated prices.</p>
<p>IDC's latest study, "Australia Identity and Access Management Competitive Analysis, 2006" (Doc # AU321308N), provides a competitive analysis with comprehensive profiles of key suite vendors in the Australia IAM market: BMC, CA, HP, IBM, Novell, Microsoft, Oracle, RSA (the security division of EMC) and Sun Microsystems. The report further provides insight to developments, trends, and challenges in this increasingly competitive market and identifies the characteristics that vendors will need to be successful.</p>
<p>"IAM solutions help organisations manage risk, improve corporate oversight, protect assets, improve productivity, reduce cost and complexity and simplify the compliance process. However, organisations are tired of the complexity, cost and difficulty of implementing an IAM solution. As a result, customers will increasingly be looking for long-term solutions built on a common platform. Standardising and centralising existing systems may be costly upfront, but the long-term value of a modular platform is very compelling. Suite vendors that can provide end-to-end IAM solutions will therefore be in a good position to compete in the IAM market," says Patrik Bihammar, Senior Analyst, Security Solutions, IDC Australia.</p>

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
