Micro-services- a unique pay-as-you-use model
The need for a model that allows consumers to pay-as-they-use services beyond subscriptions or perpetual licenses is growing. Cross Identity has pioneered this approach with a broad spectrum of services.
What are Micro-Services?
Microservices is a software development technique—a variant of the service-oriented architecture (SOA) architectural style that structures an application as a collection of loosely coupled services.
In a microservices architecture, services are fine-grained, and the protocols are lightweight.
Microservice-style IAM solution can be deployed in a far more agile manner by adding services and orchestrations, instead of the ‘Big bang’ style rollout of rather complex toolsets, we know today.
It allows supporting hybrid infrastructures with a single offering, instead of developing or maintaining both an on-premises product and a SaaS Delivered Identity and Access Management offering.
An Industry First
Cross Identity is the first provider in the Identity and Access Management domain to offer a consumption-based model.
This approach also shifts the focus of producers from just selling the product to ensuring that the right implementations with the right support is ensured throughout a consumer’s lifecycle.
Overall, the Micro-services model primarily focuses on customer-centricity—a value which Cross Identity upholds.
