As organizations grow and expand their software infrastructure, the need to synchronize data between disparate systems, and to track and audit change, becomes increasingly complex.
Many enterprises, no matter how sophisticated, have situations where identity and other data becomes out of sync across different repositories. Attempts to rectify this often involve manual processes or scripting, which introduces new issues relating to costs, security, and data integrity.
While synchronization may be embedded within a full IAM solution, these systems are highly complex and provide additional functionality that may not be required. And, more importantly, at a cost that cannot be justified.
