Why Read This
The identity management — or identity and access management (IAM) — market will grow from nearly $2.6 billion in 2006 to more than $12.3 billion in 2014 (including revenues from both products and implementation services). Provisioning accounts for half of IAM market revenues today, but it will account for nearly two-thirds of all IAM revenues by 2014. Even after years of healthy adoption rates, the IAM market is actually just beginning its trajectory toward broad adoption and deep penetration. Moreover, during the next seven years, we will also see buying behavior migrating from point products to identity suites — and, to a lesser extent, from products to managed services. Meanwhile, vendors will decompose products into service-oriented architecture (SOA)-enabled functions, repackaged in the form of identity-as-a-service (IDaaS).
