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 »

NetID Identity Manager 4.8 is a strong and solid Identity Manager Engine with most of the feature we expect.
What is most valuable?The Identity Engine is event-based and provides real-time synchronization and password synchronization to more than 40 different applications and services. The new version 4.8 is now available since mi-November 2019. It provides a newer workflow engine that will increase form creation. With the latest version, a subset of NetIQ Identity Governance is included.
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. NetIQ Identity Manager can integrated with Identity Governance administration and this is a great benefit when governance needs are present.
What needs improvement?There are some limitations in the custom workflows, mainly in the GUI presentation, but the latest release improved. The newer workflow engine shipped with latest version 4.8 provides more features and possibilities than the current legacy system. The legacy system is still supported and currently there is no migration tool available.

What is most valuable?The main value lies in the simplicity of implementation, as well as its customized look and feel.
What needs improvement?I cannot specify any areas of improvement. There's no huge thing missing because it's already comprehensive. Now and then, however, there might be a minor issue.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?Micro Focus is flexible when it comes to price. The cost varies from customer to customer. There are no additional costs, though. Everything is included.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We used to sell SailPoint as well as the CA solution. SailPoint was part of the OEM in the NetIQ. The technology product is very complex to implement.
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… more »
