"It's easy to use and straightforward."
"The solution can scale very well."
"A solution that's easy to use, stable, and reliable."
"The product is easy to use."
"Okta integrates well with other solutions. Once you have integrated an application into Okta and onboarded a user, they will be onboarded for just-in-time provisioning."
"The provisioning functionality has been the most valuable. This solution has good performance, fast integration and is very responsive."
"I am able to authenticate my users on cloud and SaaS applications such as Workday through Okta workflows."
"The most valuable features of Okta Workforce Identity are SSO, MFA, and beneficial feature sets."
"The most powerful feature of the solution is its platform-based approach. Unlike other solutions, this tool offers a high level of customization. It is an open and flexible platform, allowing users to tailor it to their needs. This ability to customize and adapt the solution to individual requirements makes the solution stand out as a powerful product."
"This solution is easy to configure."
"I like IdentityIQ's granular attachment management and certification customization features."
"Deployment takes a bit of time, however, once it's done properly, everything becomes very organized and easy to use."
"It is simple and easy to implement."
"It is a scalable product."
"The access certification feature is valuable."
"The first valuable feature of the solution is its interface. The second feature of the solution is the level of flexibility it provides."
"This user integration with the Okta integration network could be simplified."
"The training is too costly."
"A room for improvement in Okta Workforce Identity is its price. It could be cheaper. The biggest benefit of the solution is that everything works securely without extra steps, so you're saving on your workforce's time and effort because your applications work smoothly and securely, but you'd need to pay some amount of money for that. Another area that could be improved, though not necessarily regarding Okta Workforce Identity, is the SSO applications because so many of the source applications charge extra money to put the SSO to work, which means you have to buy a more expensive license. Nowadays, SSO is a mainstream functionality and it should be out-of-the-box in those applications because it's so easy to set up."
"There should be automated aggregation and complete classification processes included in it."
"The solution’s policies are difficult to understand due to the policy methods. They use authentication. The solution’s workflow is also difficult and not very active. They need to have proper documentation on it. In the next release, I would like to see the workflows being more digestible."
"The error logging could be improved. Okta doesn't provide enough details when you are troubleshooting an issue. It's often difficult to fix it from our end, so we always need additional support from Okta."
"Support could be a bit faster."
"We have experienced some challenges in integrating this solution with Scope and Cognito."
"The solution, in general, is quite expensive."
"The mover process for this solution could be improved."
"Regarding the scope for improvement in the solution, reporting is an area that can be a bit more UI-oriented."
"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."
"SailPoint IdentityIQ could be cheaper."
"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."
"It is not readily available and cannot be downloaded from the net."
"It tends to be more expensive, but at the end of the day, it works."
