Good cataloging features and the single sign on saves our clients time

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and this is one of the products that we implement for our clients. Our customers use it as a single catalog for all of the resources.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is single sign-on."
  • "We have a lot of problems when it comes to integrating with Active Directory."

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.

Offers access to different applications and has a good dashboard and interface

What is our primary use case?

I am the CEO of our company and we implemented VMware to help our users when they go to different source applications. We wanted that to be easier for them.

Pros and Cons

  • "It helps the end users to work on the road without needing to set up all kinds of VPN connections"
  • "it's very dependent on an active directory"

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.

Scalable, affordable, and easy to deploy

What is our primary use case?

We have used the solution to deploy for corporate organizations and also for complex networks.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution was easy to deploy."
  • "The security features could always use improvement, although there has already been a huge improvement from years ago."

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 scalable. It's also very flexible, especially with regard to multi-cloud infrastructure. In other areas, it's actually not more capable in terms of running the virtual machine. It's also more flexible…

Scalable with good technical support, but integration needs improvement

What is our primary use case?

I use this solution as a single sign-on, and I can join other domains in my environment. You can also get permission from the users to access something from my desktop or portable.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is that it will use my credentials to access various parts of the infrastructure or other solutions, such as vRealize."
  • "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.

Good technical support, but better support for multi-cloud sessions is needed

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the User Experience Designer, which has been very helpful for our project."
  • "I would like to have better support for multi-cloud sessions."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to be close attention to the rights that are given to end-users. This is a critical aspect. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
