The Keys to Decentralized Identity

Jared Hanson, Okta

Identity is key to everything we do in a digital world: from online banking to your favorite streaming services to your workplace apps, it serves as the core of your interactions with digital systems. Decentralized identity puts control of that digital ID in the hands of the individual, replacing traditional identifiers like usernames with IDs that are self-owned and independent – but delivering on this promise is easier said than done. In this session, we'll break down what decentralized identity is, the potential technologies that can help deliver on it, and the challenges that must be overcome to achieve it.

Benefits of Okta from McKesson: One identity platform for the future

Bora Repishti, Okta
Adam Dunn, McKesson
Will Pocknell, McKesson

Over the last few years, organizations have increasingly asked for a single solution to address their identity needs, regardless of user type and whether a user is accessing applications, APIs or infrastructure. This is especially important for large companies with complex legacy systems, decentralized environments, and many divisions operating separate data centers and technology stacks. Join us in a conversation with McKesson, a Fortune 10 company, as they discuss their journey towards identity modernization and standardization. Learn about the some of benefits they've experienced in their adoption of Okta, a key part of their roadmap to deliver secure and positive digital experiences for their workforce, partner, and customer communities.

Accelerating the Future of Transportation: From Human Identity to IoT

Molly He, Okta
Deanna Shannon, Wabtec

Wabtec, which merged with GE Transportation in 2019, is the largest rail manufacturer in the world. With over 150 years of experience, Wabtec leads in safety, reliability and efficiency of its rail technologies and had an opportunity to innovate its core tech stack - including identity - after the GE acquisition. In this session, we will talk through Wabtec’s journey to rebuild identity from the ground up first for employees, followed by key business partners and customers -- and what they’re exploring next with the Internet of Things and device identity for locomotives.

Fast Forwarding Digital Experiences with Identity-centric User Design

Christie Gifrin, Okta
Jason Nadeau, Fidelity National Financial

Over the last several months, organizations across all sectors and regions have increased their investment into digital technologies as part of their response to COVID-19. In a recent McKinsey Global Survey of executives, the crisis has accelerated their digital transformation efforts by 3-4 years, and the share of digital or digitally enabled products in their portfolios has accelerated by an average of 7 years. What’s more, respondents expect most of these changes to be long lasting. In this session, our customer panel will share the steps their organizations have taken to rapidly shift their customer, partner, and employee interactions to digital channels. They will discuss the role identity played in enabling their organizations to quickly deliver new and better digital experiences, the lessons they learned, and new opportunities they uncovered along the way.
