SailPoint focuses on Governance and CA is more provisioning tool. That is the biggest difference between SailPoint and CA.

I checked with a colleague who has more “hands-on” experience, here is his response:
If so CA IDM please no. They have done some work but it’s still not good performance-wise. It has been updated from the original netegrity or whatever code (as of a couple of years the scripts still had that in the header comments, as in untouched in years after purchase). I am not saying SailPoint is the cat's meow, as I don’t know. But given my experiences with CA IDM, and its use internally. It’s complex, does a lot but doesn’t perform very well. At one time there was an issue with data integrity due to the replication cycle (2 repositories, user/id, and a replication repository just for that and data are flushed through both in sequence) as in the last change to data was not necessarily applied in sequence. Results were last change was not the attribute state. Surely that has been fixed by now but with CA you never know. And that’s another issue. My experiences with CA support pretty much got the right support engineer, you get real answers. The wrong one, not so much. If I was starting from scratch I might well consider OpenAM. The commercial product I am pretty sure but a great IAM swiss army knife. It’s descended from Sun One which oracle tossed out when they bought sun over their own IAM product.

When you say "differences" are you looking at a feature-by-feature comparison or at an overall level - the various "-abilities" like implement-ability, integrate-ability, support-ability, afford-ability and so on?
