We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The most valuable aspect of the product is that it is Microsoft-based and it supports all Microsoft technology.The most valuable feature is the automatic provisioning and reconciliation of things like the Active Directory groups and memberships.

The most valuable features include the automated attestations or recertification... The time that people have to focus on their real jobs and not spend it doing recertifications is huge.The short version is that we gained significant insight into the issues of access governance. This allowed us to turn an auditing nightmare into praise from our auditors.It gives the best user experience, enabling us an overview of all user entitlements.This solution is better on the IT personnel, because now they spend less (or almost no time) managing user rights.The most valuable feature for me is the built-in security, which is the best that I have seen.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.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.

There are many valuable features within the solution. The product is easy to customize. It’s also highly secure.Out-of-the-box the product has a lot of opportunity for configuration and sophisticated identity management capability.I like that it is easy to diagnose. It has a version of a virtual appliance so we can download it, run it, configure it, and it would take about 10 to 15 minutes to configure the cluster or so.Word mining and risk campaigns are the most valuable features of this solution.When comparing it to other products, you can set up CA IAM in a PoC very quickly to demonstrate its provisioning capabilities.It is easy to use, and does not requires an extensive programming or development background.

Cons
When the re-certification process is launched that makes Omada very slow. There are performance issues in the current version.The user interface should have a more flexible design, where you can change it to your requirement.

[Regarding] their upgrades, we're going to 8.12 right now and everything is running very smoothly but this is actually the first upgrade that has gone off well. Even the other "dots" have taken us six months or longer to get through QA testing.The support team could be improved on. The first level of support essentially looks up knowledge base articles and often can't provide the answer needed.The initial setup was complex. We have a lot of different systems. The journey from implementing to joining all the systems was difficult.The performance could use improvement. Sometimes synchronizations take too long.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.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.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.

The directory has room for improvement. Also, the dashboards and, in particular, the KPI dashboard that shows the current user’s information needs reworking.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.In the next release, there should be provisioning of your certifications.The product has a lot of need for improvement. Our issues are being raised back to the vendor as enhancements.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
From a cost perspective, One Identity has the biggest bang for the buck.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.
