With hundreds or even thousands of employees joining or leaving companies every year, IT managers are constantly challenged to protect sensitive data while ensuring that employees can access theinformation they need to do their jobs. Adding more operational staff to execute manual processes is not an option for most companies, as manualprocesses are usually costly, inefficient and risky.
IBM Identity and Access Management Services for user provisioning can help your organization manage the cost and risks associated with establishing, managing and closing user accounts through automation.

Poor identity management practices can harm an organization in many ways. The inability to maintain appropriate access asemployees change jobs can inhibit productivity. Failure to revoke access upon employee termination creates security gaps, and ad-hoc manual processes mayfail to comply with regulations.
