This is the title of a Gartner report that was recently released. If you are a Gartner client you might want to take a look at it. It’s written by Vic Wheatman one of Gartner’s IT security team who has been around forever. Why is the article interesting? In the security priorities section it is interesting to see how important identity management is to these priorities and hence what organizations are spending their money on. If anyone things IAM is dead or dying you wouldn’t get this from Gartner’s report.
For obvious reasons I can’t quote more from their report but if you are a Gartner client you should check the report out.
