Abstract

Imagine if you could order a black box with a button on it that says, “activate identity.” However, in real life, whatever you buy or build almost always needs some sort of customisation. In this presentation, Adam Evans, Senior Solutions Engineer at Auth0, will discuss the different perceptions of customisation and its merits for developers.   

 

Attendees will learn:

  • To choose the right IAM platform to avoid complex and bespoke customisation that limits delivery of future capabilities
  • Customisation “quick wins” that deliver the greatest ROI, in the shortest amount of time
  • To distinguish between “necessary” and “nice-to-have” customisations
