Major Global Financial Institution
Identity Management Strategy and Technology Evaluation (2008)
Galexia was approached by a large financial institution to advise on the development of an identity management strategy, and provide assistance in evaluating available solutions.
The project involved a detailed analysis of business drivers including an assessment of governance, risk, and compliance issues (GRC). Business requirements were established through extensive stakeholder interviews, and these were elaborated into a comprehensive set of functional and non-functional identity and access management requirements. Based on these requirements, Galexia developed a custom identity strategy taking into account the relevant structural and cultural features of the organisation, identified the short- and long-term aims and metrics for implementing identity management, and outlined the necessary governance and operational structures required.
Galexia also conducted a rigorous technology evaluation, identifying relevant products and inviting a shortlist of vendors to present their solutions. This was used to create a detailed product assessment based on the client’s specific needs, examining the candidate products across over 80 custom metric points.
Galexia provided the client with a governance structure, a path forward towards implementation, and independent assessment of market features and trends. Galexia’s analysis enabled the project to proceed with confidence, understanding and ownership in their identity management solution.
