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 »

"The interface is old and outdated, and the design software seems archaic.""If it could be operated in such a way that anybody could use it, with just the user interface, and there's no need for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."

More NetIQ Identity Manager Cons »

"In the next release, there should be provisioning of your certifications.""Although the capabilities are there, the user interface needs to be redesigned and the opportunities for integration should be improved.""They should easier and better integration with other software.""The directory has room for improvement. Also, the dashboards and, in particular, the KPI dashboard that shows the current user’s information needs reworking.""Integration capabilities with other solutions and formats, including JSON, could be improved.""They provide a framework to develop your own connectors. A connector is a piece of software that integrates with the solutions that are not a part of the support matrix. Currently, it is difficult to create these connectors in this solution.

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."

More Omada Identity Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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."
