While SharePoint supports different forms of authentication with different user stores, using anything other than Active Directory (AD) might create administrative complexity. Even if AD is merely used, management can still be difficult with multiple Identity Stores in the context. Since identities are often managed outside of the organization, the identity and access management becomes even more complex when organizations want to provide partners and customers access to SharePoint resources.
To deal with such complexities where SharePoint access is needed to differentiate user communities, companies usually deploy additional provisioning products and involve synchronization between different identity stores. Either approach is not cost-effective, often increasing complexity and adding to the overhead. In such cases, use of Federated Identity will greatly reduce the complexities to achieve the desired goal.
