Based on years of experience, we can rapidly assess your organization’s requirements and recommend the best IAM strategy and solution product set. We can then assist in the architecture, design and implementation of a robust Identity and Access Management infrastructure which will meet current and future needs. This requires more than technical expertise and up-to-date information – it requires teaming closely with the customer’s IT staff and the ability to rapidly understand the organization, IT environment and related processes.
Deep Experience and Engineering Professionalism
CTI Global IAM consultants have, on average have 10+ years’ experience in this field.
All of our consultants have been involved with the full life-cycle large-scale, internally and externally facing IAM infrastructure projects across the government, petrochemical, energy, retail, financial, insurance, telecommunications, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, technology, publishing, travel, automotive, and healthcare industry.
Typically, our IAM engagements are of strategic importance to our customers, with extremely high-end requirements in terms of scale, performance, security, management and fault tolerance. Typical projects plan for co-existence, including migrating from one Identity and Access Management technology to another.
