Why Your Business Needs a Directory Modernization Strategy

Many enterprises are built on mission-critical applications that rely on legacy infrastructure that’s increasingly expensive, potentially EOL, and out-of-step with modern security practices. They can find themselves locked into costly licensing and maintenance fees in order to protect these aging systems, and keep their business running.

In this short webinar, you’ll learn why so many enterprises are stuck maintaining old directories, why you can’t just rip and replace, and how a modernization strategy lets you take advantage of what’s already built while leveraging today’s security practices.

Discover the benefits of the Identity Data Fabric approach to identity modernization with Dieter Schuller, Chief Customer Officer with Radiant Logic, who shares how to:

  • Minimize technical debt with an in-place upgrade approach
  • Reduce support and maintenance fees by retiring aging directories
  • Achieve zero impact to application owners or end-users
  • Set the stage for future success with ultimate flexibility and scalability
