Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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 is that it provides protection for our company documents.
The features that we find most valuable are security, mobility, and Single Sign-On.
Microsoft integration products are strong. That is what I like about the product.
The connection with multiple systems is what makes it flexible. We can create the accounts flexibly, enabling access to other systems. In addition to Active Directory, it can extend to SAP, to Salesforce, to Office 365, etc.
Nobody has to put people in AD groups by hand anymore. It goes automatically and that's very good. It's also very flexible. It's quite easy to customize and we have customized it a lot.
The most valuable feature for me is the built-in security, which is the best that I have seen.
For me, personally, the automation is the most valuable feature. I don't have to do things manually, like creating user accounts and provisioning them to the target systems.
This is almost a complete solution for us.
The business role management feature is pretty good because we have a lot of dynamic roles, and you can configure it with the filters.
The solution does lots of things that we did manually before.
It is a flexible because it is customizable. It allows you to build anything on top of it.
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.
More integration with SAP and with the internet of things would be good. We also have system devices that we could manage as identities, so that would be a feature to add.
One of the things we would like is the ability to have more than one system role manager. That would be nice. For example, when people are on vacation, sometimes it gets a little hard to administrate system roles.
A feature that I would like to see is a mobile app that provides users the ability to make changes or add users to the Active Directory, on the fly.
The system role manager, or some of the roles that are inside Identity Manager, are limited to one user. It would be more flexible if these responsibility roles could be attached to many people.
It should be able to give a client version of the product, rather than just a web-portal.
Make the logging and debugging easier to find, because I'm always confused, "Where do I have to go to turn this log on if I want to see it?"
The web portal can be a bit muggy at times. This is one of the key complaints from our customers.
We are trying to get rid stability issues from the legacy version. We are now implementing version 8.2, which is so much better than version 6.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Microsoft Identity Manager comes with the premium or community license. If the customer doesn't have a premium license, the reseller who sells the licenses of Microsoft to the enterprise can extend the license for the client.
There is a one-time licensing cost, and there is also a yearly subscription fee.
It's costlier that some other products, and there is nothing that fits every solution.
We are using a self-built solution. It would cost too much to get that up to the standard of what we need. In the long-term, it is cheaper to buy a solution that has what we need. Though, we are still running the previous solution, as we are still in the implementation phase.
It needs flexibility in the licensing or packaging, because you buy the entire package at once, and sometimes the customers are a bit overwhelmed with whatever they get. I would like if they could cut the licensing or packaging into somewhat smaller things.
It has helped to reduce customer costs.
We are paying for premium support, which is expensive. However, we do receive very good, fast support.
It helps us save on licenses for applications because we are following the account lifecycle, as well as account reactivation.
We have the premium support and are very satisfied. They are always answer our questions very quickly. For the moment, we are very satisfied, but I think it's because we are paying for the premium support.
