We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable aspect of the product is that it is Microsoft-based and it supports all Microsoft technology."
"Our customers have benefited from Omada Identity automating the certification process. Most of our customers were using manual methods for user access certification. With Omada Identity, you can automate almost all of it, which means that certification now becomes on demand. You don't have to wait for two or three months to execute a certification timeframe. Instead, you can do certifications as often as you want."
"It has a lot of out-of-the-box features. It is flexible, and there are a lot of possibilities to configure and extend it. It is user-friendly. It has an interface that is end-user or business-user friendly."
"When we started with identity and access management, we cleaned up and skipped 500 accounts. Therefore, there are a lot of people who are still in our system. Using this tool, we have cleaned up a lot of accounts for ourselves as well as our partners and suppliers. So, we can manage everything now."
"The most valuable functionality of the solution for us is that when employees stop working for the municipality, they are automatically disabled in Active Directory. Omada controls that 100 percent. They are disabled for 30 days, and after that time Omada deletes the Active Directory account. The same type of thing happens when we employ a new person. Their information is automatically imported to Omada and they are equipped with the roles and rights so they can do their jobs."
"Saviynt has better integration with enterprise systems like SAP, Microsoft, Adobe, and AWS."
"This product works well out of the box and if you don’t want to do a lot of configuration then this is the best tool."
"It's a highly functional system and a very well rounded solution. The onboarding of applications is solid. Their user access reviews are very good. Their role-based model and their identity life cycle stuff are solid. It's a very well rounded, strong product."
"The dedicated Freshdesk platform is a user community and a step in the right direction for offering learning resources."
"Saviynt has a lot of potential with many features available for users."
"Word mining and risk campaigns are the most valuable features of this solution."
"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."
"There are many valuable features within the solution. The product is easy to customize. It’s also highly secure."
"It's a very useful tool that has improved our client's security, from day one."
"Self-registration and self-service password management are valuable features. The role modeling feature is also very useful. It allows you to model your enterprise role."
"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."
"I would like to search on date fields, which is not possible now."
"If you find an error and you need it fixed, you have to upgrade. It's not like they say, "Okay, we'll fix this problem for you." You have to upgrade. The last time we upgraded, because there was an error in a previous version, we had to pay 150,000 Danish Krone (about $24,000 at the time of this review) to upgrade our systems... That means that we have to pay to get errors fixed that Omada has made in programming the system. I hope they change this way of looking at things."
"Saviynt cannot customize based on customer needs."
"The biggest drawback is that for every change you want to make, you have to go back to them and ask for it."
"In terms of improvement, it's really just a matter of them getting more mature. It's a relatively new solution and they probably need to streamline a few of the processes as they mature. But there are not too many problems."
"The product lacks a broad user base which makes it difficult sometimes to find answers to questions about the product."
"The company needs to do more to establish standard practices within the product itself that are common in the industry."
"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. Other solutions, such as NetIQ Identity, provide a better way to create your own connector. Currently, there is no cloud version. It should have a cloud version."
"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."
"There were a lot of administrator, partner, and supplier accounts for people who were no longer working for us but still in the system. So, we reduced the number of users no longer with the company, which saved us some money on licensing."
"It's a fair price for the on-premises system. Compared with what we had before, it's much cheaper and we get all the modules in one. We tried to go with the cloud, but it was far too expensive."
"If you need to make any changes then there are additional fees."
