Radiant Logic Presents: “Go right to… Ludicrous Speed:” Transforming Identity at Thomson Reuters
In 2017, Thomson Reuters recognized the need to transform their internal IAM platforms, and processes and thus a 3-5-year journey began, modernizing Governance, Authorization, and Authentication.
In 2018, TR sold ~50% of its company to Blackstone. Much of the legacy centralized IAM platforms went with the sale. Our multi-year journey was now reduced to about 14 months. While our timelines are bold, our team is presented with a career defining opportunity of replacing all of the Identity systems, at the same time, for a global company with thousands of applications and ~35K employees and contractors.
While still in the middle of this journey, Ryan Boulais, VP of Shared Security Services at Thomson Reuters, will discuss the intricacies of obtaining Senior Executive and Board level buy-in for the transformation, finding both internal and external allies/partners to support the IAM cause, developing a detailed enough plan to begin execution, and using federated identity solutions to move at “Ludicrous Speed.”
