Offers a clear roadmap, has significantly improved our efficiency, and the integration is excellent
As an administrator, we benefit from a lot of functionality that is available out of the box, but it is also configurable to meet our specific needs. Overall, the integration is excellent. A standardized connector REST scheme allows us to connect to a wide range of systems, including LDAP and others, simply by configuring connectors. This eliminates the need for custom development in most cases. This is a major advantage. Additionally, the platform offers a user-friendly drag-and-drop interface that empowers us to create custom data, views, and processes with ease. By simply clicking within the tool, we can achieve significant functionality without any coding required.

Supports on-prem and cloud environments, has good integration capabilities, and is easy to adopt
They can improve the single sign-on configuration for OIDC and OAuth. That is not very mature in this product, and they can improve it in this particular area. OIDC is a third-party integration that we do with the cloud platforms, and OAuth is an authorization mechanism for allowing a user having an account with Google or any other provider to access an application. Organizations these days are looking for just-in-time provisioning use cases, but IBM Security Access Manager is not very mature for such use cases. There are only a few applications that can be integrated, and this is where this product is lagging. However, in terms of configuration and single sign-on mechanisms, it is a great product.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pricing and Cost Advice

"It is expensive. Fortunately, I had a very good procurement manager on my side, but they are expensive. The closest competitors are also very expensive. You get a full-fledged solution that can do everything you dream of, but you pay for everything."
"The initial total cost of ownership to implement Omada Identity is not small. The TCO for the implementation is as high as any other solution. However, the cost of maintaining the solution is at par or lower than competitors, including adding more features or maintaining the system after the initial deployment or installation to make sure that they are available for users to use or extending the functionalities of those activities. Those maintenance costs are lower than other vendors, but the initial cost of getting the system installed is still high."
"It's a fair price for the on-premises system. Compared with what we had before, it's much cheaper and we get all the modules in one. We tried to go with the cloud, but it was far too expensive."
"While Omada Identity carries a premium price tag, it proves to be cost-effective."
"It is fairly priced for an on-premise environment, but for the cloud environment, I am not that happy with the pricing."
"It is licensed per managed user per year."
"Being Dutch, I can only say that it is extremely expensive, but all software products are expensive. If you have 38,000 users, then even one dollar or one euro per person would amount to a significant amount of money. Because of the high number of users, anything gets expensive very fast here."
"The pricing is too high for SMBs."

"The license and costs depend on the amount range of users you have. For just approximately 2,000 users, the price is practical and fair. However, when you have 20,000 users, it starts to become really expensive, and the discount per user is not attractive enough to go ahead and purchase."
"It costs about 300K AED for a year. Its pricing is a bit on the higher end, but in comparison to other products in the market, its price is still better. There are lots of other products that are very costly."
"The product is not expensive. It depends on the number of users."
