Quite a few features of Identity and Access Management Technology are not known to IT decision-makers. All they understand is a raw concept – allowing the right person to enter the office premises and in digital terminology, it is allowing for the right access to the organization’s IT systems. One of the lesser-known features about the IAM technology is that the benefits of the right access are not limited to the internal audiences, it is quite exhaustive and reaches out to your Federation network.
Federated Access is the electronic identity and attributes of users in (or beyond the physical range of) organizations.
Federated Access Management provides a simple mechanism to identify, authenticate, validate, and authorize users and provide them with seamless access to wide range internal and external resources. Federated Access works seamlessly across organizations, platforms, and heterogeneous directories, to allow organizations to integrate, interoperate and manage trust using defined authentication and authorization policies.

Federated Access Management is robust technology that extends access to partners and vendors, paving way for collaborative business processes
IBM explains it as the ability of one business to associate with one or more others in a federation, such that identities from one business domain (or identity provider) are authenticated and authorized to access services of another business (or service provider).
In addition, Federated Access Management also makes accessing applications easy with the help of Single Sign-On capability.
