IBM Security Access Manager (ISAM)

The IBM Security Access Manager (ISAM) track provides a unique deep dive education experience that can help enable a successful transition from traditional web access management deployments for single sign-on, to an omni-channel security gateway solution that provides the ability to perform a secure digital transformation of your business. Most topics include hands-on lab exercises that provide a simulated experience of how to get the configurations implemented. Speakers include members of our Enablement, Services, Technical sales and Engineering labs, providing unprecedented access to a knowledge pool that is actually engineering these products and driving some of the most cutting edge global implementations of the IBM SAM platform.
