This report describes the evolution of identity governance administration (IGA) and outlines the main components that any IGA platform must have to compete in this market, ahead of a Market Radar report to be published in 3Q22.



Identity governance and administration (IGA) is a class of enterprise security technology that manages the lifecycle of an identity within an organization. This starts with the onboarding of a new employee into the corporate identity store and provisioning of appropriate access rights. It then continues with the moves and changes as a person progresses through the company, gaining promotions or switching to different teams, and ends with the deletion of the identity from the corporate directory and deactivation of their access entitlements when the person leaves the organization.

This report describes the evolution of IGA technology and introduces the fundamental capabilities of a platform in this product category, which Omdia will use in a future comparative report covering the key vendors in this market segment.
