Use Financial Metrics to Justify the IGA Investment

Justifying the strategic investment in both time and resources to senior executives and the board is challenging - especially when they do not understand the underlying technology. Rather than educating them about the technology, justify the project based on financial metrics such as the return-on-investment (ROI).


This IGA Cost and ROI Calculator covers nine cost categories in the calculation that is based on a variety of third-party industry averages cost. The ROI calculator is based on organizations with more than 1000 identities. The costs cover the following metrics:

  • Fixed implementation costs
  • Software license costs
  • Deployment and ongoing maintenance engineers
  • Cost of resolving helpdesk tickets
  • User churn
  • Helpdesk calls
  • User productivity
  • Attestation costs
  • Security breaches

Get a flavor of the possible savings that you could gain by implementing an automated IGA solution – either on-premises or SaaS-based and prove to senior management that an on-premises or SaaS-based IGA solution gives significant return on the initial investment. This Cost and ROI Calculator uses industry-standard metrics to calculate the costs of running:
  • Manual identity management processes
