BYOID Exposes the “Digital Divide” Between IT and the Business

IT and business have very different perspectives on the value of BYOID to the organization

A growing number of websites allow visitors to log in using a digital identity from a trusted 3rd party -- like Facebook, Microsoft, PayPal, or Google. The fancy term for this is "federated identity," but most people call it Bring Your Own Identity, or BYOID.

In today's application economy, organizations need to securely deliver new apps to grow their business quickly. This can increase IT risks, which puts a premium on an organization's ability to simplify the user experience without sacrificing security. Using an existing digital or social identity issued by a trusted third party to access applications can help organizations meet the need for simplicity, security and a positive customer experience.

The Ponemon Institute and CA Technologies recently surveyed 1,589 IT security practitioners and 1,526 business users worldwide to understand how companies view BYOID.

It turns out that IT and business have very different perspectives on the value of BYOID to the organization. For IT, the value of BYOID is in stronger authentication and reduced costs. For business users, BYOID delivers a better customer experience and improves the effectiveness of marketing.

The results were summarized in a SlideShare presentation entitled, Five Ways BYOID Will Change Your Business. The basic points of the SlideShare:

  1. BYOID is coming faster than you think.
  2. Ownership of BYOID within the organization is still unsettled.
  3. There is a "digital divide" between IT and the business.
  4. It's not clear who should be able to "bring their own identities."
  5. Not all digital identity providers are created equal.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
