One Identity Manager Valuable Features

Director, Global Identity and Access Technologies at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
The most valuable features include the * automated attestations or recertification * IT Shop, which reduced calls to the help desk by 60 percent from users not having to contact someone to request access to something. Now, they go to the Self Service portal. Those two are the biggest wins. In addition, when it comes to usability and functionality, users are always the most difficult to please. But when we went to version 8, we actually had zero negative feedback. We had people who were praising the UI of the new version. It was very well received. We had no pushback or anything negative that we had to address. Another huge win is that a lot of our producers and salespeople are constantly on the road, and making them log into a portal for approval was very difficult. Once we implemented the approval feature, those users were extremely happy with it. It saves time and helps the end-users to become productive sooner because they can do the approvals.

In dollars: access reviews. In QoL: Entitlement requesting, Approval workflow, and Attestations. At the start of our project, IT was considered a burden by most of the company. One Identity's easy to set up requestable items and the associated smart approval workflows gave IT the power to become a hero to the company. Eventually we had lines of business coming to us with requests to integrate more and more into the self-service portal. Then on top of that, the existing attestation cycles allowed us to confidently know for certain that correct access was issued and maintained across the company. View full review »

It's the automation. With One Identity you can have multiple accounts and everything is managed in the same system. You don't need to manage different systems at different times. With just one, you can do everything. It saves a lot of time for us and simplifies things. In terms of the policy and role management features, through the automation that we have within the system, we are able to simplify those processes. The role management is really a great solution because we assign and define roles within the system and then apply them to the identities that we create for our employees. It is definitely a flexible solution. The connection with multiple systems is what makes it flexible. We can create the accounts flexibly, enabling access to other systems. In addition to Active Directory, it can extend to SAP, to Salesforce, to Office 365, etc. View full review »

It's a huge toolkit, and you can do a lot of stuff with it. You can extend nearly everything, so if you want to build something that may not have been though of by the vendor. You can do this with a partner, as we have done in the past. There is also support for these processes. Compared with other distributors who design their products to certain specification, you can put in your own processes, because not all companies function the same. You can write what you want, and the process should be like that. The policy and role management features are huge. We have had some problems getting our colleagues onboard using these features. They are used to IT setting up everything. The features in the software are good, but there is a lot of transition you have to do inside a company to get these features working. The solution is flexible. You can customize everything. You can do what you want in it. Sometimes, it is not unwise to do everything on your own, but you can. View full review »

Nobody has to put people in AD groups by hand anymore. It goes automatically and that's very good. It's also very flexible. It's quite easy to customize and we have customized it a lot. There are many features already in it that you can choose from but you don't have to use everything. You can use just a few features and leave things out. View full review »

For me, personally, the automation is the most valuable feature. I don't have to do things manually, like creating user accounts and provisioning them to the target systems. We are familiar with the policy and role management features and we are using some of them. They are very hard to define, but they are also very powerful in a way. You have to define them clearly before you start using them. One Identity Manager is also flexible. If it doesn't have a feature that you want, out-of-the-box, you can customize it by creating scripts or modifying the schema. But you usually need consultants to do the job. View full review »

The policy and role management features are superb. If you have a customer who is willing to go somewhere with role management, then the possibilities are endless with the product. It is well-structured, and the architecture is well-defined. I am quite content with it. The solution is flexible. It is based on modules. Depending on the customer's needs, you can implement the different modules, which are accompanied with it. View full review »

* It gives the best user experience, enabling us total transparency in user access rights. * We unified business processes for students and staff at enrollment/hiring/graduation/termination of contract in all organizational units of the university. * It reduced risks by granting adequate access rights to users. * The best feature is that HR finally took responsibility of it, so not everything is on IT. * The policy and role management features are important for identity management.

The most valuable feature is the configuration of users, especially onboarding and offboarding SAP roles. It is very important this is done in a fast way, especially in connection to the SAP HR system, where we can get a user onboarded as soon as they have the information recorded in HR.

The overall capabilities of the identity governance and administration (IGA) solution for identity management. The flexibility of the solution: We are able to use what is out-of-the-box, customize and prioritize it, then further develop it to meet our needs. Our use for it is very complex, but we are able to achieve success with One Identity. The back-end, its capabilities, and workflows are very good. View full review »

Even without any customization, if you install it, configure it, it's ready. We may do some small customizations afterward, but the product is really good as is. It's very powerful. Without any customization, it starts working. There is also a new feature, the Sync Engine, which is very good. Before, without it, the initial onboarding of HR systems was very difficult. The policy and role management features are good, but not well-implemented in many companies because it's not that easy. It takes time. We are starting to use attestation in our current project and to follow the company policies. It takes time, but the feature is good. The company policies feature is really good because in workflows you can check whether the policies are all working. It's a good feature, but I don't think it is very common in many companies. In terms of privileged account governance, in all of our previous projects we created privileged accounts and, again, with the new projects, we are going to start managing privileged accounts through One Identity. This feature is good. The new features are really good. Finally, the product is flexible. We can easily customize almost any part of the system, such as having logic code inside the templates, inside the tables. And we can create processes as well. The customization makes it really flexible. View full review »

Workflow management is an important feature. With other identity management products, there was no workflow management so we had to build it ourselves. That's one of the reasons we selected One Identity. We have also found the solution to be flexible. We can customize a lot of things and arrange most things within the product. It has also definitely helped simplify compliance. View full review »

Analyst at Grifols
The most valuable feature is the fact that we don't need paper anymore. We came from a paper solution and getting rid of the paper is valuable. The solution is also flexible. We have customized our IT shop. Because we have so many applications, the solution, out-of-the-box, wasn't good enough for us. So we have customized all our workflows for approvals and it's working fine. View full review »
