A flexible tool that connects to multiple and various data sources

Pros and Cons

  • "It's a very flexible tool, so you can synchronize multiple sources of data and you have multiple connections to various kinds of systems."
  • "If it could be operated in such a way that anybody could use it, with just the user interface, and there's no need for programming, then that would be a great improvement."

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 responsible for creating the accounts on the network and mailboxes and all that from that system. So no one has ever created a user manually in AD. It's all automatic. It's a solid product, it's a mature product. You just need to make sure that your IT personnel is properly trained.

NetID Identity Manager 4.8 is a strong and solid Identity Manager Engine with most of the feature we expect.

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.

Simple implementation and has a customized look and feel

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution primarily for access.

Pros and Cons

  • "The main value lies in the simplicity of implementation, as well as its customized look and feel."
  • "There's no huge thing missing, because it's already comprehensive. Now and then, however, there might be a minor issue."

What other advice do I have?

Do not look at features; look at real-time implementation experience. You need organization support, high-level support from management to do the change needed to implement it right. I would rate it as nine and a half out of ten because there is always something to improve.

Facilitates synchronization between eDirectory and AD, but the interface needs updating

What is our primary use case?

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

How has it helped my organization?

Has facilitated the synchronization from eDirectory to AD and helped with Automating some SQL tasks.

What is most valuable?

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.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than fifteen years.
