We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It scales in terms of numbers and types of identities. It can govern the on-premise applications as well as the cloud applications. So, it can manage hybrid environments with all types of identities and various load amounts."
"The most valuable feature in Omada is the governance. We work with other products and other product vendors, but the sweet spot in the market for Omada is where things are heavy on governance."
"The main control page and the ability to manage all our users from a web-based portal are the most valuable aspects of the solution. That's particularly useful because we're a heterogeneous network."
"The Cloud Identity is well advanced in terms of features, applications, and the components that it is offering."
"Although we have not looked at the whole product and explored it completely, we find that all the authentication features that we are using now are valuable."
"The most valuable feature is the performance."
"The most valuable feature is that you can manage users from one central location."
"I think the first thing that is great is that it gives you a lot of features, like login, and then vaulted passwords and secure LDAP. It becomes easier for the end customer to leverage all those features without going to a higher SKU of G Suite."
"This solution has improved our organization through its ease of application onboarding, approvals, provisioning, and lifecycle UI performance."
"They need to improve the cost for small companies."
"I would like to see them expand the functionality of the tool to continue to be competitive with the monsters out there. For example, they could add functionality on the authentication side, functionality that Octa and SailPoint have. But they should do that while maintaining the same simplicity that makes Omada a product of choice today."
"The solution needs to better integrate with Mac's OS."
"The interface could be improved by simplifying it further."
"To improve the product, the integration with third-party products could always be smoother."
"The pricing for this solution is a little bit higher than AWS and others, which is something that should be improved."
"In the next release, I would like to see integration with different systems, mainly wireless SIEMS and other analytical systems that we want to introduce."
"They are going ahead and adding a few more things to the Google Cloud premium edition. Their stock management and remote computer management can be improved."
"I think that the onboarding framework could be improved."
"The pricing is too high for SMBs."
"Omada continues to be very competitive on pricing, especially on the Omada cloud product."
"We probably spend about $50,000 a year on licensing."
"Licensing fees are on a yearly basis."
"The product is billed on a monthly basis depending on the number of users."
"The fees are paid monthly and there are no additional costs other than the licensing fees."
