L'identité est une composante essentielle de la croissance numérique. Les entreprises et les organisations ne peuvent tirer pleinement parti des technologies mobiles, du cloud ou de l'Internet des objets (IdO, ou IoT en anglais) sans une stratégie d'identités évolutive et reproductible.

The future of work means a new IT balancing act
No matter what the work of your organization, today it’s likely done…
…As much out of the office as in it
…As much on mobile devices as traditional computers
…And much more through cloud applications for core business activities and collaboration with
customers and partners.
The future of work has arrived, and with it comes a complex new balancing act for IT.
On one side of the scale are high expectations for how IT can enable digital transformation
and innovation in the business. On the other side is more accountability for mitigating risk,
even as growing adoption of new technologies means more apps, more devices, and more
mobile employees. This balancing act is driven by current challenges and trends in four areas.

Digital transformation (DX) is the continuous process by which enterprises adapt to or drive disruptive change by leveraging digital competencies, such as harnessing sensor data or using location, customer profile, and a mobile app to make shopping recommendations. DX reshapes the organization's culture where required; leverages existing processes, systems, and assets; and creates net-new digital capabilities as needed.
With DX, there is the need to embrace new business models and new architectures and technologies that will help an enterprise with customer-facing innovation as well as transition existing systems, processes, organization structure, and relationships to support the transformation.

Nous connaissons actuellement une révolution technologique sans précédent. Entre les appareils mobiles avec écrans tactiles interactifs, la 3D au cinéma et à la télévision, et la possibilité d’accéder à Internet presque n’importe où dans le monde, la technologie semble apporter de nouvelles solutions à presque tout.
