Find out what your peers are saying about CA Identity Manager (CA IDM) vs. One Identity Manager and other solutions. Updated: November 2019.
379,241 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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 short version is that we gained significant insight into the issues of access governance. This allowed us to turn an auditing nightmare into praise from our auditors.
It gives the best user experience, enabling us an overview of all user entitlements.
This solution is better on the IT personnel, because now they spend less (or almost no time) managing user rights.
The most valuable feature for me is the built-in security, which is the best that I have seen.
The connection with multiple systems is what makes it flexible. We can create the accounts flexibly, enabling access to other systems. In addition to Active Directory, it can extend to SAP, to Salesforce, to Office 365, etc.
Nobody has to put people in AD groups by hand anymore. It goes automatically and that's very good. It's also very flexible. It's quite easy to customize and we have customized it a lot.
For me, personally, the automation is the most valuable feature. I don't have to do things manually, like creating user accounts and provisioning them to the target systems.
This is almost a complete solution for us.
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.
The support team could be improved on. The first level of support essentially looks up knowledge base articles and often can't provide the answer needed.
The initial setup was complex. We have a lot of different systems. The journey from implementing to joining all the systems was difficult.
The performance could use improvement. Sometimes synchronizations take too long.
A feature that I would like to see is a mobile app that provides users the ability to make changes or add users to the Active Directory, on the fly.
More integration with SAP and with the internet of things would be good. We also have system devices that we could manage as identities, so that would be a feature to add.
One of the things we would like is the ability to have more than one system role manager. That would be nice. For example, when people are on vacation, sometimes it gets a little hard to administrate system roles.
The system role manager, or some of the roles that are inside Identity Manager, are limited to one user. It would be more flexible if these responsibility roles could be attached to many people.
It should be able to give a client version of the product, rather than just a web-portal.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The connector is free, and bundled with the product.
There is a one-time licensing cost, and there is also a yearly subscription fee.
It's costlier that some other products, and there is nothing that fits every solution.
We are using a self-built solution. It would cost too much to get that up to the standard of what we need. In the long-term, it is cheaper to buy a solution that has what we need. Though, we are still running the previous solution, as we are still in the implementation phase.
It needs flexibility in the licensing or packaging, because you buy the entire package at once, and sometimes the customers are a bit overwhelmed with whatever they get. I would like if they could cut the licensing or packaging into somewhat smaller things.
It has helped to reduce customer costs.
We are paying for premium support, which is expensive. However, we do receive very good, fast support.
It helps us save on licenses for applications because we are following the account lifecycle, as well as account reactivation.
We have the premium support and are very satisfied. They are always answer our questions very quickly. For the moment, we are very satisfied, but I think it's because we are paying for the premium support.
