We engaged with KeyData due to their deep expertise and experience in IAM. KeyData conducted a ‘current state’ assessment of our complex IAM environments, with multiple stakeholder groups, and identified key challenges our organization was facing. Based on our key challenges, KeyData defined a pragmatic and realistic enterprise IAM Strategy & Roadmap, outlining the key components and priority milestones to achieving a successful IAM deployment. The Strategy and Roadmap were well received by the multiple stakeholder groups. We are on track with implementing the Enterprise IAM Roadmap and realizing the business value.

Shortly after taking over the senior IT role, I engaged Rosa (KeyData) to conduct an assessment of the performance and results of an IAM project for which I had serious concerns. She was recommended as a highly qualified industry expert and she lived up to her reputation. Her in-depth investigation uncovered the true realities regarding the effectiveness of the delivered IAM solution and provided a clear understanding of the performance of the project team and the external technology consultant. Rosa’s work and report was extremely valuable in informing me on what IAM solution is appropriate for an organization like ours and the path to achieving it.
