Why Read This
Enterprise role management, role mining, and access recertification help enterprises with maintaining segregation of duties, keeping up with regulatory compliance requirements, and automating role-based provisioning to enterprise applications — even through difficult economic times. Forrester estimates that the 2008 enterprise role management market is at $70 million, with a conservative estimate of annual growth rate of 70% to 90%. Key differentiating factors among products are: 1) the connector framework to endpoints; 2) risk scoring; and 3) management of rules defining roles. While consolidation is bound to happen in the intermediate to long term (12 months or more), today it's still a market of stack vendors and product specialists offering competing solutions that can operate independently or in collaboration with a user provisioning solution.
