Initiatives Position Omada to Scale Faster and Drive Increased Consistency and Standards Across Teams
COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Oct. 11, 2022 — Omada A/S (“Omada”), a global leader of Identity Governance and Administration (IGA), today announced enhancements and restructuring of the company’s technology and product teams, led by newly appointed chief technology and product officer, Benoit Grangé.
The team’s primary goal is to create a strong product development team that is deeply engrained with customers and partners to deliver strong and innovative products to the market. In order to achieve this primary ambition, Omada has streamlined and simplified the product development process by consolidating previously disparate teams of Tailored Services Engineering Center (TSEC), Cloud Operations Management Portal (COMP), and Research and Development (R&D) and aligned them all under clearly defined responsibilities and focus. As part of these efforts, Omada has introduced new roles, including chief architect, cloud operations manager, release manager, documentation lead and UI/UX designer. The company largely drew from promoting internal talent to fill the newly created roles, including Nils Böckmann’s promotion to chief architect, as well as several others to team lead positions to further career development.
In addition to recognizing and fostering internal talent, Omada is committed to finding the best talent available to aid its growth as a leader in Intelligent IGA. Søren Grubov joined the company as the newly appointed vice president of engineering, after previously holding the same title at SimCorp, where he worked for more than seven years. He also spent more than a decade with Microsoft as a senior software development engineer.
These strategic initiatives, promotions and hires will help Omada drive increased consistency and efficiency, by standardizing duties and defining common processes and tools across teams. This will better position the organization to scale faster, not only with the recruitment of new staff but also with the release of future product features, upgrades, enhancements and functionality to continue at the forefront of IGA. The updated structure is designed to give customers even more confidence in the Omada SaaS offering, assuring its reliability, durability and scalability.
Omada is a leader in the intelligent IGA market and has placed a heavy focus on building out the pillars of intelligent IGA:
- Governance Everywhere: Identity Governance must become more accessible to everyone that needs access, wherever they need it, making workflows, access requests and administrative tasks more efficient and effective for business users and administrators.
- Enriched Security Ecosystem: Intelligent IGA can serve as the glue for an enriched security ecosystem by building on the strengths of other best-of-breed solutions.
- Enabled Connectivity: As new systems are added to the stack, there will always be a need from customers to quickly integrate connectivity to these applications for provisioning and de-provisioning access.
- Informed Decisions: At the crux of intelligent IGA is the ability to leverage automation and intelligence to support human decision-making—and to automate core IGA tasks like managing the identity life cycle, access reviews and certification campaigns where possible.
Together, these core attributes help support enterprises in their never-ending quest to stay secure, compliant and efficient while reducing cost and uncertainty from managing identities and access.
Benoit Grangé, chief technology and product officer, Omada, said: “Enterprises need best-in-class identity governance to manage and administer identities and access even as the threat landscape expands. To meet this need, we’ve made significant updates to our R&D structure to foster greater uniformity and standards across the team – all with the goal of bringing continued innovation to market and getting our products to users more quickly. This is just one step in the ongoing development of Omada’s product vision.”
