Cons
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.This product was only launched two or three years ago and it is still in the process of becoming stable.They have to improve the User Entity and Behavioral Analysis.Instead of using the connectors from the third-party companies, they should make the Microsoft templates available with this product. If Microsoft would increase the number of the box connectors that would be helpful to all the customers who use it daily.
