Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
DirX Directory is the best feature of the product: a very fast, stable LDAP directory.
The role and attribute-based access control has been greatly improved.
Word mining and risk campaigns are the most valuable features of this solution.
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.
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.
It has improved our user management. It is definitely streamlined.
Streamlines user access, consolidates applications.
It has good endpoint support and endpoint connectivity to different versioning endpoints.
The Self-Service Portal is old school and it lacks easy accessibility for users.
An overall modernization of the product is required in order to keep up with newer products.
Needs more available consultants and implementation partners.
In the next release, there should be provisioning of your certifications.
The product has a lot of need for improvement. Our issues are being raised back to the vendor as enhancements.
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.
Needs more cloud integration, which hopefully will be coming soon.
Provisioning has a dependency on Windows.
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.
Identity Manager has a lack of entitlement support, unlike other products that I have worked with.
We would like to see integration with analytics. Also, for them to be more efficient regarding discovering and implementing new rules.
