Ask Me Anything – Windows 10 & The Importance of Identity Management

February 19, 2015 Leave a comment

When: April 30th, 2015

One of the biggest challenges to creating a single user identity for each user is to get all the various identity attributes together and consistent across an environment. Users perform their day-to-day activities from anywhere, using more than one device and OS. IT professionals are beginning to shift from device-centric management to people-centric management. The upcoming Windows 10 offering will amplify this and further enable end users to seamlessly transfer from one device to the next. Join the upcoming discussion regarding the importance of Identity Management in light of the upcoming OS offering.
