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?

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

As our identity model continues to mature, probably the Federation is most valueable.

Federation is valuable, 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 product does well with that.

It provides the breadth and the width to provide solutions for the different kinds of technologies which we have.

We almost never have outages nor see slowdowns.
All of our applications get a point, click, and you are in, while we increase security at the same time.

If you look at our organization, and really all financial institutions, we have a lot of legacy apps. So it really helps to get Single Sign-On.
Ease of use is very good, for administrating it. It's very well known.

It has the ability to authenticate and authorize users. It is the main feature for our security.
It is very scalable. We have a very large customer base: 75 million customers.

IWA is an out-of-the-box feature. The SAML-based federation is standard for all tools. However, CA Single Sign-On has made the federation configuration way too simple and handy to set up and use.

Authentication & Authorization are important because all the sites need authentication for security purposes. That has been handled pretty well all these years with SSO.

CA has reporting at the moment. With the reporting, every particular segmented product has a reporting engine. I would like to see centralized reporting for all of them together.

Better documentation. I went through some sessions on single sign-on for version 12.7.

I'd like to see a rework of the user directory configuration.

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.
They need to make configurations easier, and not have the engineer having to guess what will happen when he changes a particular setting.
The initial setup was 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.

As we are moving in to the mobility space, this is where we really see SiteMinder and their other product really come together to provide a solution base to a different area where the IoT is coming, the different business communications are happening. All of those things require authentication and we really want to see this product grow into that role.

I would prefer to see their SAML integration be a more streamlined and easier interface.

I would like to see a move towards the newer technologies, which is what we are doing right now. I think that's in the roadmap that's coming, in the 12.8 and 14 releases, but we would like to have it sooner than later.

The main thing is we do not have the traceability and good monitoring that CA can provide us to capture problems when they occur.
All the problems that we reported actually have never been resolved. We could not capture enough information for CA to be able to debug the problem.

If the reporting feature can be integrated into SSO itself that will be an icing on the cake.

We would like to the OAuth be more stable, more issues being fixed rather than not.
