Quotes From Members

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

"I find the auto-discovery feature the most valuable. It helps us automate a lot of things using a single password across applications.""It gets a mobility portal in place in conjunction with Office 365. It provides very good possibilities and it's much better than other technology that we have used before which was unstable and slower.""The soundness of the solution is its most valuable feature. For example, if you are in our corporate network, you can log on without any traffic interfering.""The solution is stable. We haven't experienced any bugs or glitches."

More PingID Pros »

"The most valuable feature is the user experience for managing information.""Rather than implement a basic SSO, this solution assisted us with setting up two-factor authentication.""It provides basic automatic user administration and role provisioning to save time."

More SAP Identity Management Pros »

"It has a long way to go until it is a cloud-based solution.""They could use some bio-certification. It's just more user-friendly and more convenient than entering the one time passes. That would be an improvement.""If the solution is going to compete with Microsoft, they need to offer more unique functionality to keep their current user base.""The solution should allow for better integration with other platforms and the UBT."

More PingID Cons »

"Research and marketing need to be improved.""It needs to have the SSO for the HANA modules that SAP is releasing.""A lack of startup connectors to different systems, and could have better connectors for SAP IDM."
