What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is single sign-on. It is a true SSO. For example, you can use fingerprint authorization from your Apple iPhone to unlock all of your desktops, corporate applications, and so on. Our customers primarily use cataloging features. VMware provides a good user experience in terms… more»

What needs improvement?

We have a lot of problems when it comes to integrating with Active Directory. Simply, it is not consistent when you configure it. When I compare this with other solutions, the customization is really limited when it comes to cataloging. Scaling this solution is difficult and it should be easier to… more»

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

There are two ways that you can license the Identity Manager and you can choose the one that works best for you. You can pay on a monthly basis, which is called VCPP (VMware Cloud Provider Program), or you can buy a perpetual license that you pay for only once. When it comes to usage licensing, you… more»

What other advice do I have?

The biggest lesson that I have learned when working with this product is that you can publish to a repository, rather than using a simple network share. Our customer was very happy with this. Overall, this is a pretty good product that can do many things. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

What is most valuable?

I'm happy with the interface and dashboards but the most valuable feature comes from the name of the product - it's now called VMware Access, so it's the access to the different applications and so on that makes it a good product. It provides a single page where you can log in to all of your… more»

What needs improvement?

I think the product could be improved by making it more independent. For now, it's very dependent on an active directory so that you could basically tie into us for A, B or some other IDP that they provide. Another aspect that could be improved in the next release is to have local language support… more»

What other advice do I have?

We deploy both on-premises and cloud. The auto-prem is easier but the cloud is much better. It's important when installing that the roadmap of the application integration is carried out correctly. I would rate this product an eight out of 10.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We checked a couple of other options before going with the product, but because we have VMware, MDM, it meant that Air Watch mobile device management is used so it was a natural step that led to using Identity Manager there as well.

What needs improvement?

I would say that VMware has actually met all of our requirements. I don't feel like we presently need to actually have any improvements. It's actually a good fit, especially for our market. The security features could always use improvement, although there has already been a huge improvement from years ago.

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

The price is high. Also, the infrastructure requirements are huge. We're looking at three locations then I'm also looking at connectivity in between locations and then I'm also looking at the application.

What other advice do I have?

I'm currently in the process of testing the solution. In terms of cost, I'd probably go with HP or VMware. We have a number of VMware implementations, so VMware is the only solution that we have actually used. Generally, I am satisfied with VMware because they have been quite responsive in terms of the kind of challenges that we have in the Central African region. We have solutions that are very… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it will use my credentials to access various parts of the infrastructure or other solutions, such as vRealize. If some kind of disaster happens then it is possible to restore the identity manager database from a backup.

What needs improvement?

I would like to integrate this solution with VRE and VDI. They can now be installed, but they operate as separate components. Many of the features that exist in Active Directory do not exist in Identity Manager, which means that people depend on Active Directory.

What other advice do I have?

This is a solution that I recommend. For the purpose that this solution is designed for it works great, but it doesn't compare well with other solutions. I would rate this solution a five out of ten.
