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

Pros
The most valuable feature is that you can manage users from one central location.The most valuable feature is the performance.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 Cloud Identity is well advanced in terms of features, applications, and the components that it is offering.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 feature that we find most valuable is the corporate email pushing.We used to have a system before, Mac OS Open Directory server and this open directory became obsolete because Apple decided to stop the enterprise market, so there was no other alternative for us to use. We chose this to replace the open directory and we found that it has many more features than the previous solution. We totally rely on it right now to manage all the devices on campus.It's all about centralizing your data and making sure that your data is centralized and secure.It seems highly stable and scalable.No issues with scalability.It's all about securing data with the help of the email client called VMware Boxer. It enables the end-user to carry data in their mobile devices but there is containerization between the personal data and the organization's data. It helps enhance their security while still carrying their own BYOD.People who want to adopt this solution may be thinking about it from the end-user's perspective, but this solution is also very friendly for the people who manage it. It's administration-friendly.For me, the integration of AirWatch with various enterprise components is something I like. The way they are partnering with various services, like security services, or some of the big guys like Google, Android, Apple, and including Microsoft; that's really awesome. And the way they look at providing functionality to create self-service and automation, that's really usefully and beneficial. That's where I see they differentiate themselves.

Cons
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.The pricing for this solution is a little bit higher than AWS and others, which is something that should be improved.To improve the product, the integration with third-party products could always be smoother.The interface could be improved by simplifying it further.The solution needs to better integrate with Mac's OS.

The mobile device repository is somewhat difficult to manage with a large user base.The solution needs to adapt to the cloud based reality of the current world model. Some customers may have reluctance to this, but it is the next level for all of the big providers. Azure, AWS and Google are all on the forefront of cloud-based solutions.The setup was very difficult. It was not as easy as I had expected.In terms of the inventory management side, as in the invoice management, the stock management and the entire inventory of an organization is lagging a bit in comparison to Blackberry or other EMM solutions.Setup is not too complex.One of the things that I want them to improve on, if possible, is the management of Mac devices, MacBook Pro, for example. They do it, but they have scope for improvement, in my opinion. It's not that it's that bad, it just a small need.The console comes bunched together as a package and inbuilt. Its called Workspace ONE. Whenever we have an issue, we contact the service provider, and instead of a fix, we are just getting the next version of Workspace ONE.The Content Locker cannot inherit permissions for the Windows Public Folder. If they could integrate with Microsoft on this point, it would be the perfect functionality.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The fees are paid monthly and there are no additional costs other than the licensing fees.The product is billed on a monthly basis depending on the number of users.Licensing fees are on a yearly basis.We probably spend about $50,000 a year on licensing.

If you purchase it for one year, it is very expensive. If you get it for three years or up to five years, then you can bargain a better price.I think the pricing of the product needs advisement. It would be great to bundle the VM products together. I think the actual box itself should be included in the license. At present, it is not paired with the mobile device.The pricing and licensing are affordable. They are not too high.I have no opinion about the pricing of the product.In terms of pricing, this solution is definitely much more expensive compared to other solutions, like MobileIron or MaaS360 or any other product in the market. This solution is more expensive by 30 or 40 percent.
