It is difficult at best to combine identity management end-to-end (or end-to-edge), with data sharing, while adhering to policy and compliance. Current distributed systems increase significantly in operational complexity as they scale upward. Problems arise around service discovery, connectivity, scaling for volume, and application onboarding and updates. Disaster recovery is difficult, especially as systems have evolved to operate in silos defined by technology rather than business needs. As complexity increases, systems become expensive to operate in terms of time and money. They become fragile making it difficult to deploy services and applications hindering innovation, increasing time to value and total cost of ownership.
