Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The most valuable feature is the automatic provisioning and reconciliation of things like the Active Directory groups and memberships.""The most valuable aspect of the product is that it is Microsoft-based and it supports all Microsoft technology.""Our customers have benefited from Omada Identity automating the certification process. Most of our customers were using manual methods for user access certification. With Omada Identity, you can automate almost all of it, which means that certification now becomes on demand. You don't have to wait for two or three months to execute a certification timeframe. Instead, you can do certifications as often as you want.""It has a lot of out-of-the-box features. It is flexible, and there are a lot of possibilities to configure and extend it. It is user-friendly. It has an interface that is end-user or business-user friendly."

More Omada Identity Pros »

"The solution's most valuable feature is the authentication for the consumers. The integration with other third-party applications is excellent.""The most valuable features are that it is easy to manage and it's stable.""We create and define the permissions and configurations for the users.""ForgeRock has CIAM, which other products didn't have, and they have DevOps ready.""Even though we have very small business interests with them today, they see that we plan on growing drastically over the next two years. Therefore, we have excellent support and we are now at a point where we are not calling tech support. We pick up a phone and call the Account Manager and they'll get everything resolved for us. We don't have to queue along with everybody else and go through a long process.""I like the intelligent authentication feature.""Their access management solution, OpenAM, is most valuable because it meets the needs of a lot of users."

More ForgeRock Pros »

"The most valuable features are Password Reset Alerts, Password Sync, and SQL connectors.""It's a very flexible tool, so you can synchronize multiple sources of data and you have multiple connections to various kinds of systems.""The main value lies in the simplicity of implementation, as well as its customized look and feel."

Cons
"The user interface should have a more flexible design, where you can change it to your requirement.""When the re-certification process is launched that makes Omada very slow. There are performance issues in the current version.""The Omada Identity SaaS version doesn't provide all the features Omada Identity on-premise provides.""Its flexibility is both a good thing and a bad thing. Because it is very flexible, it also becomes too complex. This is common for most of the products we evaluated. Its scalability should be better. It had a few scalability issues."

More Omada Identity Cons »

"The identity management model needs a bit of improvement.""They should improve the solution by include reporting.""I find that it's quite expensive for just an open-source system. Support is quite expensive.""Automatic Deployment needs improvement. it could be made easier.""We're worried about the scaling. We're told it will be okay and there won't be issues, however, I'm not 100% convinced.""It should have a better user interface. Its flexibility should also be improved. It is not about simplifying; it is more about flexibility. Each company has its own requirements, and ForgeRock can provide more flexibility in terms of the use of existing modules to implement features for the customers.""It should be a little bit easier to implement. It is user-friendly, but there is always scope for improvement."

More ForgeRock Cons »

"The interface is old and outdated, and the design software seems archaic.""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.""There's no huge thing missing, because it's already comprehensive. Now and then, however, there might be a minor issue."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The initial total cost of ownership to implement Omada Identity is not small. The TCO for the implementation is as high as any other solution. However, the cost of maintaining the solution is at par or lower than competitors, including adding more features or maintaining the system after the initial deployment or installation to make sure that they are available for users to use or extending the functionalities of those activities. Those maintenance costs are lower than other vendors, but the initial cost of getting the system installed is still high.""It is licensed per managed user per year."

More Omada Identity Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It's a bit pricey and could be more competitive.""We have multiple clients we are looking at right now. We are at a very small number, however, the idea and the goal is to grow. We are looking at about $100,000 and $50,000 a minimum a month cost. That'd be minimum maybe in a couple of years.""Its price is comparable to other products in the market.""Its licensing is on a yearly basis, but it also depends on the contract that you have with the vendor. They have multiple types of contracts. There are additional costs to the standard licensing fees. If you need some of the features, you have to pay more."

More ForgeRock Pricing and Cost Advice »

"You just need to be aware that the more systems you connect, the more license fees you have to pay.""Micro Focus is flexible when it comes to price. The cost varies from customer to customer. There are no additional costs, though. Everything is included."
