In 2019 customers and partners should be presented one single interface to all of the backend systems of their services providers. They should be able to choose between the different multifactor applications they have, whenever they want and whereever they are. Back and identity and access systems should be agnostic about this and should be ready to be distributed, decentralized, utilising OTP (one time password) and MFA (multifactor authentication) or step up authentication. Not only customers, but systems should be able to provision the complexity of devices, systems, applications and other services. Technologies, expertise and experiences exist to support this in order to reduce digital identity theft, malicious access attempts and still reducing the burden of the customer access control. Identity and Access in the 21st centurt support the digital transformation of organizations, systems and technologies in a seamless way. Financial institutions organize themselves to reduce the administrative burden for their business customers (Isabel) by facilitating KYC (know your customer) amongst themselves, and the respective mandates for financial services. Technologies (Forgerock) support the ease of the single customer accessing multiple legacy back-end services seamlessly. Decentralized and distributed authentication, identification are being made possible (Trustbuilder and KEYP) going towards Zero Knowledge Proof and reducing the burden for personal dataprotection, and providing seamless multifator possibilities. Proving compliance and controlling access throughout multiple systems and cloud environments (Brainwave) for management, audit and DPO can be made easy. Multifactor authentication and OTP increase the security levels, but technologies have lowered the barriers for customers to use them (InWebo). With developments in industry (IDSA) this won't be limited to data interactions within an organization. Walls are being teared down to access company confidential data.
