Beneﬁts for identity service customers• Managing, conﬁguring, securing, developing and problem solving, even end customer support is identity service provider’s problem• Contracts to handle security, service levels and availability• Makes it easier to concentrate into own service and product development or production, not the infrastructure conﬁguration• When the applications and services you use are already in the cloud, should not your identity be there too?
Beneﬁts for (cloud)identity service providers• One place, one interface, one infrastructure and one service to be developed and maintained to customers.• Multiple customers utilising and paying for the same service (without even additional work per customer).• Lower needs for customisation. A customisation, which can be generalised can be turned to a revenue creating service also for other customers.• Stronger relationship with customer
