Buying IGA Solution

Buying an identity governance and administration (IGA) solution is one of the biggest decisions that an organization will make and does not just have an effect on security and risk management and identity and access management (IAM) leaders. This Gartner® research sifts through the features and functionality organizations may need to help bolster security, improve efficiency, and meet compliance. Learn how to select the best IGA solution by considering a litany of factors and needs in a way that makes sense for your organization. The research delves into the five steps of an IGA buying journey, starting with drivers and inventory cases, and winding into selection, to help each organization effectively select the right IGA tool for their needs.

In doing so, we believe the report uncovers some common themes to be wary of and consider when developing requirements and evaluation criteria when any organization is considering purchasing an IGA solution.

  • Buying cycles for IGA solutions are rushed
