SailPoint Technologies has announced the details of its eighth annual identity conference, Navigate Virtual 2020, which will take place on 27th August. SailPoint is welcoming all identity management skill levels from identity practitioners and evangelists to identity newcomers to learn why identity is ‘business essential’ in the ever-changing work landscape.

Thousands of IT professionals, industry experts, partners, and evangelists will explore new identity innovations on the horizon plus the fundamentals needed to weave identity into the fabric of today’s digital business.

Registration is now open for Navigate Virtual 2020. Sign up here for this free event and be on the list to receive reminders and updates leading up to 27th August. Registration also allows for on-demand access that will be available 24/7 after the live event.

"Our goal with Navigate Virtual is to be the identity conference, providing an identity forum to host important conversations among identity practitioners and newcomers alike. The pandemic forced enterprises to shift to a virtual workforce this year quickly and became the most compelling real-world example for why identity management is so foundational to businesses across the globe today," said Juliette Rizkallah, Chief Marketing Officer, SailPoint.

"We hope that each attendee comes away from Navigate Virtual with a clear picture of how identity can speed their organisation forward, securely, efficiently, and autonomously. We will also show how SailPoint Predictive Identity is the next-generation of identity that enterprises require to secure today's digital workforce. We look forward to helping each attendee understand how to manage their new permanent reality, with identity governance as the foundation of it all." 

The agenda includes more than 100 hours of content across talk tracks, including: Starting Your identity Journey; Identity As Business Essential; SailPoint Predictive Identity; and  Platform Technical Sessions and Demos. Customer-lead sessions will air in an engaging Q&A format.
