More information about Galexia’s Identity and Access Management (IdAM) Guiding Principles

Galexia’s methodology includes 6 IdAM best practice principles that should be applied to programs of work, activities and individual projects.

IdAM Guiding Principle

Example application (and this will vary on a case-by-case basis)

1. Common Governance

Provide central control while also supporting the flexibility of autonomous execution across various business functions. Align IdAM projects with key initiatives to maximise business impact.

2. Invest in Standard Solutions

Invest in commercially available products when possible and deploy with minimal customisation. Reduce or eliminate the development of in-house solutions/tools which can be costly to maintain and difficult to integrate.

3. Reuse, Replicate, Standardise

Where possible, centralise IdAM process execution, reuse existing technologies, replicate proven processes, standardise technologies and architectural patterns.

4. Automate

Where possible, provide process automation and/or system driven execution. Streamline provisioning processes. Establish workflows and accountability matrices for sustainability.

5. Enable

Enable the business by investing in people, training and communication as an integral component of execution. IdAM processes and solutions are operationalised across the organisation for sustainability.

6. Measure

Measure and monitor the IdAM program at various levels, considering the customer, key performance indicators, key risk indicators, compliance, and adherence to service expectations.
