IAM Support, Maintenance and Operation
Your Identity & Access Management in the best hands
Every company has a unique IAM infrastructure. One thing they all have in common is that they are highly complex and critical to the business – with hundreds of dedicated interfaces for countless systems – and that operating them requires in-depth knowledge of the underlying processes, technologies and data.
As experts in operating complex IAM infrastructures, we provide support for your environment as part of our managed services. Our IAM support solutions will help your IT department in their day-to-day operations with 2nd and 3rd level support, software maintenance and the continuous development of your IAM solutions. We work closely with you and our technology partners to ensure optimal support at all times.
Thus, you will profit from standardized services that are optimally tailored to your requirements and based on established methods such as DevOps – and from a minimal number of incidents in an infrastructure with maximum resilience.

- Services provided by specialized IAM experts
- Maximum standardization
- Fixed availability

Our Support Services
Service Management encompasses all the activities of a Service Manager – from communication to coordination to Quality Assurance. More specifically, the Service Management process includes the following:
- Communication and coordination with the client
- Management and scheduling of the service team
- Ensuring the service level
- Service reports
- Service meetings
- Escalation meetings
- Coordination & prioritization of incidents and problems
- Regular meetings
Incident Management focuses on possible errors and outages of your IT services. The Incident Management process creates an incident ticket in the ticket system for each case and logs the processing. The aim of this process is to reinstate the affected IT service as soon as possible – and, if necessary, provide a suitable workaround. In the event of priority 1 errors, the client is always informed via phone call. These services include individual support times and reaction times tailored to your requirements.
- Processing incident tickets
- Resolving errors within the IAM tool
- Providing the solution within the service level agreement
- Root Cause Analysis (RCA)
We investigate the cause of errors and develop a possible solution. The aim is to rectify the cause of problems, proactively avoid incidents and minimize their impact. In the process, we determine the root cause, log and document it and generate a change request to rectify it. If required, we can work with the manufacturer to rectify the problem and tackle the root cause rather than simply treating the symptoms.
We guarantee the high quality of our services through continuous training, the cross-team exchange of expertise from our numerous projects and the consistent maintenance of our knowledge base. Extensive documentation helps our service employees to quickly and easily familiarize themselves with your IT environment and react optimally in the event of errors.
- Documentation of the customer environment
- Documentation of known incidents
- Regular updating of the knowledge base
- Documentation of Best Practices
Change Management encompasses the planning and implementation of change requests for your existing IAM solution components – with minimal impact on their productive operation. This service also includes the implementation, testing, documentation and approval of all changes.
We are also happy to support you at any time with:
- Executing service requests
- Change processes according to requirements
- Project activities (e.g., upgrade support)
