IBM Tivoli Identity Manager Review
Good product for mid to large enterprises that is looking for an integrated IAM stack.


Valuable Features:

IBM Tivoli Identity Manager, now known as IBM Security Identity Manager, is a very well established and well rounded identity management solution.TIM has most of the functions and features that you would need in a provisioning solution including:Complex workflows Self service functionality Admin UI that supports delegation Rich set of very competent adapters Strong reporting capability

Room for Improvement:

The product is complex to install, configure and maintain.The dual persistence layer with LDAP as well as DB results in a need for a large server footprint especially if you want redundancy.Some features like the request and approval interface is not as pretty or user friendly as some of the competitors.Licensing can be expensive depending on what kind of IBM relationship you have.

Other Advice:

Being part of the IBM security stack means that TIM is pre integrated with a host of other IAM products such as Tivoli Access Manager and Datapower which makes it easy to seamlessly integrate your entire stack .

It would be better if ITIM introduces a progress indicator for Adapter Profile import which shows if profile import is in progress or completed similar to other component changes within ITIM. The details of the request must show the status of the sub-components of the profile that is being imported. Currently we have to check the trace.log if the import is completed.
