Here at IT Central Station, we offer a crowdsourced platform that allows real users to share their opinions about tech products with the rest of the enterprise tech community. We have compiled over 17,000 views of the top Identity and Access Management tools by real users in 2014 and Q1 2015 and analyzed their trends in the infographic below. All of our data is based on actual behavior of real users researching and comparing vendors on IT Central Station.
The top two most popular vendors as selected by our users are Oracle and IBM. CA's two products followed right behind, rounding out the top 5. However, no single product in the top 5 ranked had over a 8.0 rating as selected by our users, yet both Novell and Self Service both were rated 8.6 and 8.4, respectively, yet were not in the top 5 products. IT Central Station uses a weighted ranking system based on views, comparisons, reviews, followers, and average rating of every product in determining our ranking of the top products in each category.
