How has it helped my organization?

We did an exercise, but it was a long time ago. I know that we had a lot of manual work that we saved by using the product. So on a monthly basis, we would hire ten or so users per day, ten times, over twenty days, so two hundred in total… more»

What needs improvement?

The product, the technology itself, is really good. The problem is the ecosystem. There's not a lot of people that know the product, so it's hard to find someone to work with the product. Sometimes you need to deploy something that's a… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I'm not sure of specific pricing, but I know they have different licensing, depending on your organization. Governments, for example, have special pricing. Education would have different pricing because it's more like a sector. There might… more»

What other advice do I have?

The way it was implemented for the company was mostly for HR integration. So we would synchronize data from SAPHR to an Active Directory. So all the new hiring, all the user provisioning was made by HR on the SAP system. This system was… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We learned a lot about what not to do when we implement our next solution. We were implementing an HCM solution at nearly the same time as NetIQ so that was definitely… more»

What needs improvement?

Be more honest about how poorly it runs on Windows servers. It is optimized for Linux. Just because you can install and run it on Windows doesn’t mean you should, at all… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Very expensive licensing. Definitely review support and licensing contracts with an attorney to get language less ambiguous and redline accordingly.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

This was our first IAM solution.

What other advice do I have?

Get executive buy-in and know that a tool isn’t going to fix bad processes.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did. We evaluated CA, IBM, Novell (now NetIQ) & Oracle.

What do you think of NetIQ Identity Manager?

What is our primary use case?

I design, deploy, and use NetIQ Identity Manager in different environments. It's mostly to provision user accounts in AD, but I also use NetIQ Identity Manager to provision (to and from) accounts with the following applications and systems: Oracle and PeopleSoft, Office 365 and Azure, EasyVista, IBM AS/400, Oracle E-Business, etc. Thanks to the role-based access control included framework, we give initial access to business resources as from the start date of the employee.

How has it helped my organization?

NetIQ Identity Manager provides workflow and forms that allow all managers to initiate new employee provisioning under the control of the HR or finance department. This reduces the number of accounts created out of control.

We use this solution for Directory and Password Synchronization, as well as SQL updating for ERP.

How has it helped my organization?

The most valuable features are Password Reset Alerts, Password Sync, and SQL connectors.

What needs improvement?

The interface is old and outdated, and the design software seems archaic.
