SAN RAMON, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/14 -- While applauding its intent, Avatier questions whether Geoffrey Moore's User-Centric IT Initiative is addressing the future or the past in the company's latest blog "Identity Management Already Crossed Geoffrey Moore's Latest Chasm."
The user-centric IT movement is no longer new and has been continuously evolving over many years now, the post asserts. It points out that CIOs and their departments have been treating corporate users as their primary audience for some time. Enterprises striving for more productivity certainly have been making IT more user-centric, with the least friction from the IT department, for years. Many technology projects today in information security, networks, data centers, and storage continue to streamline their processes and measure success in terms of the impact on employees and business users.
"Identity management was one of the first proponents of user-centric IT; initially with self-service password reset where employees could handle most of the issues around password management by themselves, to the introduction of the first IT store over six years ago for user provisioning and access management," commented Nelson Cicchitto, Founder and CEO of Avatier. "So I was more than a little surprised to see Okta view this as an 'initiative.' In our industry, as Gartner has pointed out, this is no longer an initiative. It's been core to the business for several years now."
