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.

The product has poor reporting and analytic capabilities. Reports are not easy to use and its analytic capabilities are limited.Needs to focus on automation wherein provisioning of work can be improved and access certification should be automated without the intervention from a manager for approval.The connector for EPIC, ServiceNow, and Duo.Some setups should be done in the interface and in the code, and could be made simpler.It allowed to implement the automated processes when a new employee is hired. It allows to have a main central process for new hires.The advanced provisioning features require more improvement.
