The initial setup was straightforward. Also, we have been doing upgrades, in place upgrades, as well as cloning infrastructure, which has been pretty straightforward. However, the documentation is very unclear. It is painful to go through the actual documentation and get the information which we need. I opened up a ticket a couple of weeks ago. It was on strong authentication where we wanted to upgrade from an older version to a newer version. I had to go through three documents and open up a ticket to understand how the upgrade process should happen. It was so confusing. In one document, they say something, and in another document, they say another thing. I actually had to open up a ticket for this. I wanted to delegate the work to somebody else, and when they asked me the question, I did not have the answer, because it was distributed across three documents. Even during my initial deployment of strong authentication, this was the older six stack two version, if I would have gone through the document to build it, I would not have done it. We had professional services sitting with me, because I was doing a PoC. At that time, we went through the installation, and I was able to receive some help. But for everything, I cannot go to professional services. If the documentation was straightforward, then I do not have to refer to professional services. That is one thing that I have noticed, the documentation is really unclear. View full review »

I wasn't involved in the initial setup for our current environment, but I'm involved with a project that is setting up the upgrade environment. It's pretty straightforward. View full review »

Complex, painful. But that is to be expected of any new setup. When you're a big bank like us, any kind of migration to a new product is hard. I expect it to be painful, and it was painful. But it's not something that you can avoid. View full review »

I was not involved in the initial setup, but I am involved in building a parallel platform right now for an upgrade. The upgrade is a very straightforward setup, easy to install and run. A little bit complex to set up rules, but that is why you want engineers around. View full review »

We actually used CA Professional Services. There were some challenges on some aspects of it, but on the base product, not at all. View full review »

When I started two years, it was already setup. Now, I am reengineering it. I am doing a different setup to eliminate any customization for CA to support us better. The process is straightforward. View full review »

I wasn't in on the initial setup, but I have been installing a lot of the newer versions. Compared to six, seven years ago, now it is very, very smooth. View full review »

Although it is straightforward, for someone new to access management, it is always a challenge to understand what is done and why. That is where I struggled initially, since I was very new to the domain. Domain knowledge is more important when you are new to a product. View full review »

It was complex. The Federation part of CA Single Sign On, it's a bit complex to implement because it involves the SSL certificates, exchange of certificates, and lot of technical details. The documentation misses some important parts of this, so that's the reason it took some time for us to go live. View full review »
