Cons
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.

There's no huge thing missing, because it's already comprehensive. Now and then, however, there might be a minor issue.If it could be operated in such a way that anybody could use it, with just the user interface, and there's no need for programming, then that would be a great improvement.The interface is old and outdated, and the design software seems archaic.
