What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it meets the requirements of the customer. You have a lot of features in the product. Every product has them, but the question is, are these products going to meet the requirement of the customer? Because, if... more»

How has it helped my organization?

If I describe what actually happened, a little bit of the business case, that will help you to understand what it was like. The customer is the kind of customer that really doesn't want to share anything. When a person joins that... more»

What needs improvement?

I think the future release is, if you ask me, I think they have done a lot in the new release, especially the front end. The front end was not as good. CA did a good job in doing it, especially when I look at the new identity suite. They have... more»

What is most valuable?

Right now, federation that comes out-of-the-box with single sign-on is the most valuable feature that we have, and also scalability.

How has it helped my organization?

It is a simple solution to implement, and it provides additional flexibility.

What needs improvement?

Better documentation. I went through some sessions on single sign-on for version 12.7. Whatever features we are looking for from a REST API perspective, they will be there. So far, it is good. We have to implement it, and figure out what is... more»

What is most valuable?

As our identity model continues to mature, probably the Federation is most valueable. In IT, you're seeing a large shift to the cloud, and to using software as a service applications and, because of that, you still need to be able to securely... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It allows us to get, again, both externally hosted and internally hosted web applications up and running using centralized credentials in short order. It makes it easy.

What needs improvement?

I've talked to them about this: I'd like to see a rework of the user directory configuration. In Single Sign On, whenever you set up a new user directory, there is a pretty specific number of hoops that you have to jump through in order to... more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it takes a lot of the logic for authentication and authorization out of the hands of your application and moves it into a centralized framework. Once we have our authentication and authorization policies set,... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has reduced developer costs; we get some of that back. Before, when we used a tool that was engineered in-house, it still required a lot of developer resources. Every time we created a new application, it needed to integrate into our... more»

What needs improvement?

One thing that we found a little difficult, was the default functionality to understand error messages coming back from a directory. You had to either use an add-on product or an advanced password service or perhaps change components within... more»

What is most valuable?

Federation, for sure, because we have a lot of third-party vendors that we need to integrate with, and this is a turnkey solution in some ways. The Directory is secure. It's our user store, and it's important to keep our members safe. The... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It keeps our members safe, that's a benefit for us. It's important.

What needs improvement?

I think they need to integrate some of the newer types of authentication into the product. I'm not seeing the innovation when it comes to biometrics in the product. Also, easier integration with third-party partners to OpenID Connect because... more»
