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."

"The features that we find most valuable are security, mobility, and Single Sign-On.""The most valuable feature is that it provides protection for our company documents.""The feature that I find most valuable is the security layer of the identity and access management solution. The ability to secure on-premises and cloud-based workloads and to provide seamless authentication into hybrid workloads, which is also both on-premises and in cloud environments.""The most valuable feature of the solution is the fact that I can use it to track who is sending which email, who is accessing which documents or which files, etc. These tools help me improve security within the enterprise environment.""The most valuable and most interesting feature is the conditional access.""Very powerful synchronization tool.""It is a stable product. You will experience some issues with it, but it's a good product."

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 »

"They have to improve the User Entity and Behavioral Analysis.""This product was only launched two or three years ago and it is still in the process of becoming stable.""In terms of the identity and access management solution for on-premises environment, I think Microsoft needs to eliminate or minimize the number of workloads for the solution to run in on-premises environment.""The information that is available for the Active Directory portal is segregated here and there.""All actions require logging in to the server.""The product could be more friendly for non-native English speakers. It would also be better if it were more intuitive and visually attractive."

More Microsoft Identity Manager 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."

Information Not Available
"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."
