Average Rating
Average rating based on reviews

Comparisons
Number of times compared to another product
Reviews
Total number of reviews on IT Central Station
Followers
Number of followers on IT Central Station
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score. (20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.) Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) * 80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What is most valuable?

As a company, the most valuable feature that we have is our almost real-time feed from our HR systems into CA Identity Manager, which then feeds down to all of our directories or applications that an employee could potentially need to access.

How has it helped my organization?

The multitude of end-points that we can connect to, whether it is an out-of-the-box connector or through a JNDI or a JDBC connection. We can connect to just about every application that we so far have tried to connect to with relative ease.

What needs improvement?

One of the biggest features that we are looking at is more cloud-based options. Right now, there is a connector to Office 365. While it is okay for smaller companies like us, as a 300K plus operation, it is not really quite where it needs to... more»

The automation that it brings to the enterprise is one of the main things that we looked at.

How has it helped my organization?

We had a 20 year old provisioning system which was built primarily for manual activities. Identify Manager helped us move to a more automated model with fewer manual interactions. This definitely had a lot of added value for us.

What needs improvement?

Keeping up with the market and support for functionality and other core endpoints like Active Directory and Exchange that right now seems to be missing. So it needs a little more work around keeping up with what the industry is going.
