Microsoft Identity Manager Initial Setup

Support Engineer – Solutions Architect at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
To be honest, the on-premise configuration is complex. You need to know what you are doing to successfully deploy the solution. You need components such as an SSL certificate. Also, you can't use a self-signed certificate. You need a certificate with a publicly known CA, such as GoDaddy or DigiCert. Additionally, you need to configure your application proxies, all your ADFS and MIM servers, and also the database servers correctly. It's quite complex, you need to know what you're doing in terms of getting the solution up to speed. View full review »

If we compare Microsoft Identity Manager to a cloud-based identity management solution, the initial setup is complex. If you compare Microsoft Identity Manager with Okta or OneLogin and the direct cloud solutions, these are all fast solutions awaiting only minimal configuration. The number of companies for which we uniquely install Microsoft Identity Manager is a little more than what we allocate fact-based IDM solutions for overall. Deployment depends on if the customer requires high availability and disaster recovery strategy, or the number of applications that we need to integrate. The time that it takes to deploy the solution, integrate applications, and configure the dynamic overflow typically takes around three months. The deployment requires a minimum of three months and sometimes it can go up to six months. View full review »
