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»

What is most valuable?

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.

What is most valuable?

We only need one pane of glass to see what users have access to, especially privileged accounts.

How has it helped my organization?

Once it's in place, it's easy to use. You definitely need insight into how your company provides access to users. Especially if it's going to be role based, which most of it is. It reduces the amount of time needed for analysts to provision... more»

What needs improvement?

I'd like to see the user interface be a little bit better as far as deploying the infrastructure, the back end, but I hear that it's coming. Most of the troubleshooting workflow is based on logs, so if the logs were consolidated we would need... more»

What is most valuable?

We take identity management seriously and CA IDM is helping us to accomplish that goal. We have streamlined the identity management process, but we are not completely utilizing all the features of CA IDM. This product is a... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We have been making strides in that area, but we still have more improvements to do. We are not there yet, but we hope to be there soon.

What needs improvement?

An improvement that we would like to see in a later version is taking it to the cloud. We have it on-premise and we foresee a lot of scalability challenges so taking it to the cloud might be a very good option for us.
