It's very easy to run and it's part of their ecosystem and I don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon.
The ability to speed up ability is an asset.

When logging on to Azure AD it's pretty quick.
Configuring the domain and setting it up in the Azure portal is just three clicks to be honest.

The self-password reset if it's enabled and configured properly, really helps a company be able to reset rather than getting IT involved.
Just because I've been in the Azure space since it started out and in the Microsoft Cloud AD since the BPOS days in the early 2000s, and it's just a product that made life simpler for my clients to be able to integrate everything.

The centralized management feature is very valuable.
We do not have to deploy lots of machines all over the place to run things as a service, which is how we like to deploy things, just as a service.

The most beneficial feature would be the effectiveness of having a hybrid set-up.

It is a really nice tool and we have a license for the more complex model.
I like the way it communicates to the cloud.

It is a very straightforward implementation.
It helps us with maintaining enterprise identities.

We have not had any formal issues with scalability.
It is pretty good in terms of stability.
I primarily use this solution for hybrid deployment, security, securing resources and for integration purposes. In terms of security, we have been using the B2B/B2C hybrid integration with the certificate authentication.

The most valuable feature is the factor identification. I find that it is natural integration, and it is just a natural step. I do not need to do anything else.

Microsoft Azure Active Directory Premium Cons

To look at more documentation, engineering, or an open standard would be nice.
Microsoft has so many different requirements and priorities that sometimes they don't invest all their energy into the products that you have expectations to investigate.

At first, it was a bit challenging to come up with a workaround that would get authentication to work.

Documentation I think is always the worst part with what Azure's doing right now across the board.

A nice feature that is not currently present, would be if they had some visualization tools.

Initially, we wanted to exclude specific users from MSA. So, we had a condition policy, which forces MSA for all the users. So we wanted to exclude users who are using an NPS extension. So it was not listed, as a NPS extension was not listed outside an application, in actual, so, we go back and were not able to exclude users using NPS extension from MSA. So that was one limitation that we found and we had to work around that.
Tech support is inconsistent.

Whatever business requirements we needed in the past three years, users were created, with the name of the user and they were not connected with the Active Directory. We were trying to in house in three years and with directory, but we were not able to achieve it.
Be aware that it may not work perfectly globally yet. There are still glitches with the solution in Africa.

I think there is room for improvement with actually discussing, and advertising Microsoft as a an authenticator. Many people just get confused and use Google, and I think if Microsoft would make more of an effort to penetrate the market, that would be key.

The SSO MyApps interface is very basic and needs better customization capabilities.
