Converged IAM can be defined as an IAM solution that brings all the different dimensions of identity and access management into a single platform. Access Management, Identity Governance and Administration, and in some cases even CIAM, all converging in a single solution and is touted to be the future of enterprise security infrastructure.
Most of the leading players in the IAM industry have been strong in only one dimension of IAM and customers always had to purchase an Access Management solution from one vendor, and an IGA solution from another. What if there was a need for risk analytics? Maybe another set of solutions.
