Today, June 3rd, the IRM Summit takes place in Phoenix, Arizona.  The Summit will explore how Identity Relationship Management (IRM) is becoming a critical  backbone for the future of secure identity management, privacy and integrated commerce – and an increasingly complicated landscape to navigate.

 “In today’s internet-connected world, employees, partners, and customers all need anytime access to secure data from millions of laptops, phones, tablets, cars, and any devices with internet connections. Identity relationship management platforms are built for IoT, scale, and contextual intelligence. No matter the device, the volume, or the circumstance, an IRM platform will adapt to understand who you are and what you can access.”

Lasse Andresen, CTO of ForgeRock, a sponsor of the IRM Summit, puts it this way:

Summit highlights include the following:

  • Karen McCabe, Senior Director of Collaboration and Consensus Community at IEEE, will discuss OpenStand and the importance of collaborative communities as they relate to business development.
  • Kantara Initiative will host a workshop discussing identity as not only a technical solution, but a core business connection driver. Join leaders from Experian, ForgeRock, Forrester Research, IEEE-SA, Radiant Logic, Gartner and for this discussion to kick off the IRM Summit.
