Eye of the Tiger: The Gartner Magic Quadrant for IGA 2019
What is Identity Governance and Administration?Identity Governance & Administration (IGA) provides policy and governance around identity access to ensure the right people are getting access to the right things at the right time. IGA vendors often offer identity management capabilities to assist with security, compliance, entitlements, access certification, provisioning and de-provisioning in a centralized management solution.
Saviynt’s Prep for the Gartner IGA Magic QuadrantEvery year, Gartner reviews various vendors in the Identity Governance and Administration space and places them on an axis of Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute. These vendors—just like contenders in the big fight—are evaluated as Niche Players, Challengers, Visionaries, and Leaders. Organizations use Gartner’s expert in-depth examination for guidance on vendors to consider for their Identity Governance program. At Saviynt, we prepare for the Gartner Magic Quadrant as though training for the Identity Governance and Administration championship match. We answer extensive questionnaires, meet with Gartner analysts to explain capabilities and roadmap, and present customer success stories to demonstrate how our IGA solution helped leverage identity governance as the foundation for their digital transformation. Then we climb back in the ring with the Gartner preliminary reviewers to defend any debatable points. We see the Gartner Magic Quadrant as the IGA event of the year. Every year.
Highlights: Identity Governance and Administration 2019 Heavy-Weight Championship2019 saw dramatic shifts in the Identity Governance and Administration Magic Quadrant. We can’t get into the nuance of the shifting landscape—you have to read the report for that detail. There’s always movement within the axes as some vendors show the results of their hard work and some end up on the ropes or quit the fight. But for Saviynt? This year we might as well be singing the song “Eye of the Tiger” because we believe we’ve been rising to the challenge. From the moment we first “entered the ring” and were evaluated by Gartner in the 2016 IGA Magic Quadrant, we’ve targeted the apex of identity governance vision and cloud security. Sharpening our governance solution for identity, we’ve focused on a diversity of features and technical soundness aiming to surpass our competition, and we think it’s working since we’ve been placed as a Leader for the second year in a row. We’re excited, but we’re not surprised; at Saviynt, our dedication to innovation and transformation drives our direction.
