Great event, business focussed, informative with a wide range of speakers that gave a lot of different views and options for me to take away. Thank you and well done.

BT, Chief Architect – DSS Big Data.

I think this is a good way to network with people to hear about what other people are doing and really to get in to the community to see what’s going on outside of your immediate atmosphere.


It’s been fantastic, we’ve met a great number of people, they are really good quality, these are people who know about big data.

It’s been really good, we’ve had a huge number of people here, some excellent conversations and been busy all day.

Previous events

The 9th edition of IDM Europe built on the success of previous years by continuing to attract the leading voices from within and across the European IAM community. Whether it was Dr Frank Simon of Zurich Insurance who expertly mapped out how to successfully execute the strangler pattern for bottom-up migration, Andrea Van Der Ham of the Dutch Governments Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate, who addressed how to overcome solution bias and avoid IAM project failure, or how to master IAM delivery with DevOps, as illustrated by Vilma Blomberg of the KONE Corporation, the conference agenda provided for an exciting mix of industry case studies and thought pieces.

By attending the 9th annual IDM Europe 2020 delegates discovered how to:

  • Manage bottom-up IAM migration at scale
  • Avoid vendor lock-in when managing an IAM project
  • Protect every privilege every time across the enterprise
  • Accelerate and automate the return of value from IAM initiatives
  • Enhance visibility and control of privileged accounts, users, and assets
