Released on May 1, 2017, the Gartner research report on Critical Capabilities for Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) states that, “IAM leaders should use this research to gain an understanding of how IGA products can address their needs and to augment their evaluations of vendors IGA solutions.”

Hitachi ID scored the highest in the Automation-Focused Use Case, defined in the research as follows, “Provisioning is the original automation-focused use case for IGA deployments, targeting efficiency and control simultaneously through end-to-end automation.”

According to the report, “Direct fulfillment is called “provisioning” and it connects to account repositories, whereas indirect fulfillment uses a workflow or external system as proxies for completing changes.” According to the research, “Fulfillment is one of the most visible and complex capabilities of an IGA product. It allows changes initiated by the system to be reflected in target systems.”
