Matt ThomsonPrincipal Consultant at UNIFY Solutions
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"Microsoft integration products are strong. That is what I like about the product."
"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."
"We like the integration with other systems."
"The compliance features are the most valuable features."
"The community is very active and when I had questions about an issue, I was able to find the resources."
"The solution is very good at the management of the identity lifecycle."
"The solution is stable and reliable."
"Certifications and user provisioning features are the most valuable."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"I would like to see more Cloud management from this product."
"They should lower the price and technical support should be better."
"The interface should be simple and easier to use."
"Compared to at least one other product some of the administrative tasks could be easier or more intuitive."
"The connectors are far too manual. This needs to be automated a bit."
"The UI needs to be more user friendly. More concentration on historical policy violations would be great. In terms of new features, I would like to see artificial intelligence and machine language added."
"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."
"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."
"The licensing fees are on a yearly basis."
"You do pay one price for the license but that price depends on what you choose to include as far as the optional modules go."
"SailPoint is higher in price as compared to Saviynt. The initial cost of SailPoint is very high. There are additional costs to the standard licensing fees."
