Implementing a 
Global IAM Operating Model in International Enterprises

In today’s hyperconnected digital landscape, international enterprises face unique challenges in managing identities and access to critical resources. These complexities are further exacerbated by the misalignment of IAM processes resulting from mergers and acquisitions. Organisations must adopt a global IAM operating model that streamlines processes, enhances security, and drives consistency across the enterprise to address these concerns and optimise operations. This paper explores the compelling need for a worldwide IAM framework and its transformative impact on international organisations.
