Workforce mobility, rapidly changing business models and business partnerships contribute to a trend where businesses must be able to seamlessly enable access for everyone, to every digital service. These services might be public cloud, they might be web applications with or without support for federation standards, they might be solely backend services accessed via APIs, or even legacy applications exposed only via some sort of middleware. However, agility in the digital journey mandates that IT can provide seamless access to all these services while keeping in control and enforcing security. Identity as a Service offering, whether deployed from a public or hybrid cloud, can take a central role, by acting as the common fabric connecting all the users and all the services. Such services include support for adaptive authentication, auditing features, broad federation services, authorization capabilities, and various capabilities.
