Digital Alliances Chapter Overview

0900-1030 EGY

Session Leader: Hans-Robert Vermeulen, Identity Strategist – SailPoint

Session Theme Title: “Building a Successful Identity Program and Where to Start your Identity Journey”

Session Overview and Synopsis:

If you’re starting out on your identity security journey, or looking to get to a more mature state, you’re probably going to have lots of questions. After all, building out an identity program can be an overwhelming task. Where do you start? Who do you engage? How do you get from an idea and strong notion you need to address critical business challenges, to a successful implementation, delivering actual and measurable business value?

During the interactive discussion you will find help with the following:

  • Defining the specific business goals you most need to achieve.
  • Understanding the right questions to ask that allow you to uncover the business value for your company.
  • Identifying the pathways that will help you achieve quick wins as well as long-term success.
  • Selecting the right technology for the job that will give you the returns your business needs.
  • Understand what hurdles can be expected when defining the business case or implementing a solution and how to overcome them.

In this session SailPoint will be joined by case study end user client Vodafone Egypt in order to share real life examples of the personal and business experiences of building an identity programme.
