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?

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.

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.
