We performed a comparison between Microsoft Identity Manager and SailPoint IdentityIQ based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Identity Management (IM) solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The benefits of Omada Identity include a holistic way of viewing access, the ability to give people access, and automation."
"The thing that I find most valuable is that Omada consists of building blocks, which means that you can configure almost anything you want without using custom code, making it pretty easy to do. It's possible to connect to multiple target systems and to create one role that consists of different permissions in the different target systems. So one role in Omada can make sure that you have an account in three different systems."
"he customer success and support teams have been crucial."
"It has a lot of out-of-the-box features. It is flexible, and there are a lot of possibilities to configure and extend it. It is user-friendly. It has an interface that is end-user or business-user friendly."
"The Governance and self-service that can be set up so you can use them yourself to work in the system are the most valuable features. End users can be enabled to help themselves."
"We don't have to go in and do a lot of the work that we did before. It may have saved us somewhere in the range of 10 to 30 percent of the time we spent on provisioning access."
"We used to have a problem where an employee's access wasn't terminated when they left the company. Now, we have much better visibility into and control over who has access."
"I appreciate how Microsoft keeps adding new features to Microsoft Identity Manager."
"The most valuable feature of the solution is the fact that I can use it to track who is sending which email, who is accessing which documents or which files, etc. These tools help me improve security within the enterprise environment."
"It is one of the easiest products to implement, which is one of the main advantages. The integration is easy. Unlike other products, it is not complicated to integrate."
"The concept is primarily for the people in the business. In business, you can discuss how integrating all the services and resources within the company can bring numerous benefits."
"Very powerful synchronization tool."
"The product’s most valuable feature is stability."
"What makes this solution attractive is the licensing model. Microsoft Identity Manager is included in premium versions of Azure AD and in enterprise agreements such as E3. This makes the solution very attractive to many of our clients who are subscribed to those products."
"The features that we find most valuable are security, mobility, and Single Sign-On."
"I find the built-in connectors, lifecycle management, certification, and recertification features to be the most valuable."
"The most valuable feature for our customers and for us is the identity data warehouse."
"We like the integration with other systems."
"The solution is pretty stable and simple to use."
"The compliance features are the most valuable features."
"It offers a single source of truth. Everything can be handled from one tier."
"The solution is stable and reliable."
"The basic concept is most valuable. I like how they have designed the solution. They create an Identity Cube, and then they do all the processes and configuration around the Identity Cube."
"I would like to see them expand the functionality of the tool to continue to be competitive with the monsters out there. For example, they could add functionality on the authentication side, functionality that Octa and SailPoint have. But they should do that while maintaining the same simplicity that makes Omada a product of choice today."
"One thing that we are not so happy about is the user interface. It is a bit dated. I know that they are working on that, but the user interface is quite dated. Currently, it is a little bit difficult to customize the user interface to the need of the business, which is a little bit disappointing. It needs it to be a little bit easier to operate, and it should have a better user interface."
"The solution should be made more agile for customers to own or configure."
"When the re-certification process is launched that makes Omada very slow. There are performance issues in the current version."
"The user interface should have a more flexible design, where you can change it to your requirement."
"They need to improve the cost for small companies."
"I would like to search on date fields, which is not possible now."
"Functionality and usability could be improved."
"The security could be slightly improved."
"Some valuable features might go unused because they are not well-documented or connected clearly in user guides."
"The prices can always be improved, and the integration with the software from other vendors could use an improvement, especially if you are using something like Oracle for a database, SAP for ERP, or something like that."
"Microsoft Identity Manager could be more intuitive in terms of interface."
"The product could be more friendly for non-native English speakers. It would also be better if it were more intuitive and visually attractive."
"All actions require logging in to the server."
"The setup was difficult. The deployment process is not quick."
"MIM's reliability could be improved."
"If there's a price reduction for SailPoint IdentityIQ, that would be helpful. Another area for improvement in the product is the technical support, which needs to be more friendly to customers."
"They should lower the price and technical support should be better."
"It is too technical. You need really good technical skills in Java and other technologies, which are hard to find. If they can make it easier so that things can be done with a few clicks, it will be great."
"What it doesn't do is provide notice in the event of a vulnerability or offense from the security."
"The user interface could be slightly improved. It could be made simpler and more user-friendly, however, it is good enough right now."
"There are various functions that don't work in IdentityIQ, including the access request reminder, which doesn't go to the approvals in the proper format, so it's hard for users to read."
"One needs to understand that SailPoint is into full-fledged IAM practice with a long-term vision, and customers will get a quick ROI with best practices implementation."
"Compared to at least one other product some of the administrative tasks could be easier or more intuitive."
