Purpose: To share my personal view and experience on how Identity & Access Management (IAM, also referred as IdM or IdA) should be done in enterprise IT B2E (Business to Employees) environment (up to half million seats and one million nodes globally). Unlike most other IAM Internet sites, I do not sell products or services. I see IAM from a buyer's angle rather than from a seller's angle. My goal is to purely share information and benefit other enterprise IT divisions / departments to improve security, increase productivity, minimize cost, and meet regulatory compliance in long term. Hopefully, this will also set an IT requirements bar for IAM product vendors.
