Enterprises use Human Resources or Human Capital Management (HR/HCM) software to manage their employees’ work-related data. This covers everything from hiring to departure, including benefits, time management, performance reviews, payroll and more.
HR/HCM systems play a key role in Identity and Access Management (IAM) as they are typically used as the authoritative source for employees, reporting lines and organizational data. Enterprises derive value from IAM when it allows them to express the IT access needed by people in terms of their business functions and positions. This is why HR/HCM and IAM integration is a key part of any organization’s IAM and IT security strategy.
