We can tune, add, and build where we need to.
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.

When comparing it to other products, you can set up CA IAM in a PoC very quickly to demonstrate its provisioning capabilities.
It is easy to use, and does not requires an extensive programming or development background.

The Identity tool needs to do more kinds of reporting for audit purposes. It doesn't really track any of the metrics that are useful to us, at this point.

The drawback with the CA Identity Manager is they don't have a connector to HR systems like SAP, or PeopleSoft, or Workday. That's a major drawback with the CA Identity Manager. For that we have to do lots of custom quoting to get data from HR systems. And if they could connect it to GRC systems, that's good to have in an identity product.
