As technologies evolve rapidly, consumers use different devices and apps, and choose to identify in many different ways. For many, mobile has replaced desktop, while others choose the ease of logging in with one social identity. Whichever option they use, consumers expect an outstanding and consistent experience from the brands with which they interact. Brands still need to build trust-based relationships with their customers and connect with their consumers in the way they want, giving them a cohesive omni-channel experience, while maintaining high security standards throughout. 

SAP Customer Identity offers many options for authenticating users. Customer Identity includes out-of-the-box mechanisms for site visitors to log in and create an identity on your site.
