One Identity Manager Review

It is easy to extend the product for custom purposes


What is our primary use case?

My primary use case for the solution for the last several years was migrating from version 6 or older to version 7 or 8. Most of the time, we implement new features, optimize existing features, or do project management for the customer.

How has it helped my organization?

Our customers have a higher degree of automation and compliance. The product has a good self-service portal, which makes the IT processes a lot better and easier for the end customer.

We have integrated the solution with SAP. Our customer wanted us to do the implementation for web-based administration. They wanted to have easier access to provision their accounts into their system. Because until then, most of the customers were inputted manually. Now, they can automate it, which makes it a lot easier. They can monitor the segregation of duties, such as the financial aspects of it, in SAP.

What is most valuable?

There are so many different connectors out-of-the-box, and the solution works fine. Overall, the product works well and is very good tool, which functions well.

It's pretty flexible because you can use it in almost every way you want. It is very open. It provides good insight on all the basic job chains, and you are free to use, extend, or change it.

What needs improvement?

I am waiting to see the new API for the web.

There are several smaller parts of the tool that have room for improvement. One Identity currently is in the development process of fixing these issues.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is quite stable if you know how to use it right. If you have a good implementation, it is really robust. 

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is pretty good because we can reach the right person directly. We also get escalated quickly, if necessary, to the development team. So far, it has been a good experience.

There is a good support team if you have issues. There is a really nice path to get in touch with them.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was pretty straightforward because the documentation is really good. It was even easy to train junior employees in our company since the documentation is easy to read and straightforward.

What was our ROI?

This solution has helped to reduce help desk calls for a lot of customers because of the password reset. People can now reset their own passwords. That is a great benefit for customers.

This solution has helped to increase employee productivity when it comes to provisioning users.

What other advice do I have?

Look at one or two videos online on the One Identity YouTube channel. Get in touch with some of their people and possible get a short preview of their products. That is the easiest way, so you can set up a test environment pretty fast be shown how simple the processes work. 

One Identity has a very strong community combined with the tool. They also have a very good relationship between partners, customers, and themselves.

It is easy to extend the product for custom purposes. 

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: Partner.
