Helped improve entire security culture, around identities, in our company
There are some technical bits and pieces that we have looked at that could be better. For instance, when you do a recalculation of an identity, it's hard to understand what was incorrect before you started the recalculation, and which values are actually updated. Right now, all you see are all the new fields that are provisioned, instead of seeing only the fields that are changed. This makes it hard to understand the situation before you started it, compared to after. This is one of the key features that I'm really missing. Also, the onboarding of applications could be easier. There could be workflows to go through the entire process of onboarding a new system or application, instead of having to go to three places to do it. Those are the two key improvements needed. Also, the connectors for the applications that we use are good, but not fantastic. This is constantly improving. Recently, they added a ServiceNow integration, so there are still new connectors coming. But there are a few systems that I would like to see on the list, systems that are not there today. We have two ERP systems: SAP and something called Infor M3, and the latter is not there. It's okay, though. Maybe some of the other companies we evaluated have even more connectors, but Omada was good enough for us.

It provides a centralized system that saves time and money while improving security compliance
I like One Identity's reporting features and the single sign-in option. Users can skip multiple logins. It also gives us a centralized system that lets us know about a user's access. This is an automated process. If a user leaves the company, One Identity will ensure their application access will be removed after a certain date. When the user joins a company, it ensures all privileges are created and active by the start date. Using an open-source integration platform, we can integrate any service provider with One Identity. I think the user experience has been positive. Customizing the solution for each company's requirements has been challenging and interesting. Some of these companies are massive and have significant requirements, and we need to ensure that everything is under the scope. We are collaborating to test and incorporate other functionalities. Corporations might also have their own applications, so we should be aligned with those.

Supports API integrations with different systems
My company uses multi-factor authentication and we tried using it integrating with FIDO Server. It was done to make sure that the multi-factor authentication feature gets used during the authentication process. AI can be used for better authentication, but right now, our company has not used any such feature. I recommend the product to others. It is easy to install and easy to use. Understanding a feature before you integrate a tool with other tools is important. In my company, there is another team with five to six engineers that takes care of the support part of the tool. The product has helped me to meet my security management requirements as per ISO 7001. I rate the tool a nine out of ten.

Quotes from Members

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

Pros

"I appreciate all the support we receive from Omada."
"The most valuable aspect of the product is that it is Microsoft-based and it supports all Microsoft technology."
"Omada's best feature is creating accounts, automatically assigning permissions, and distributing resources based on assignment policies."
"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."
"The benefits of Omada Identity include a holistic way of viewing access, the ability to give people access, and automation."
"The identity lifecycle support is definitely valuable because we are a complex organization, and there is a lot of onboarding, movement, and offboarding in our organization. We have 31,000 users, and there are a lot of users who are constantly onboarding, offboarding, and moving. So, we need to make sure that these activities are supported. In old times, we used to do everything manually. Everyone was onboarded, offboarded, or moved manually. So, from a business point of view and an economics point of view, identity lifecycle is most valuable. From a security point of view, access review is the most important feature for us."
"It scales in terms of numbers and types of identities. It can govern the on-premise applications as well as the cloud applications. So, it can manage hybrid environments with all types of identities and various load amounts."
"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."
"One Identity Manager offers several features that I found advantageous compared to other tools."
"The best feature is that it's customizable. For example, we can create any kind of product or custom service within an IT shop and customize it the way our customers need it. For the customers, it's the best. They are happy with it."
"It's role-based access control, and you can manage it. It's perfect for our customer's governance control."
"The most valuable feature of One Identity Manager is its object-oriented architecture."
"One Identity Manager stands out because it offers a wide range of features without requiring complex installation or ongoing maintenance."
"The solution is flexible because you can realize the customer needs. Therefore, it is easy to upgrade specialized things. It provides the flexibly, so you can implement customers' use cases."
"I like the customer-facing portal because it is simple to use for end users."
"We chose this product for being able to accommodate our requirements. It's very flexible, and it's open to being developed to our requirements."
"The solution gets the job done, and we don't have to do the main configuration."
"The keystore feature has been most valuable for us."
"The product provides easy integration between API manager and IT server components."
"We use the solution for customer identity management, authenticating customers coming in through a web portal."
"The single sign-on procedure itself, as well as the ability to connect to external user sources such as Microsoft Active Directory and LDAP servers, are the solution's most valuable features."
"It's very easy to implement everything."
"The product's initial setup phase is easy."
"Some of the valuable features of the solution are the easy integration with processes, such as Single Sign-On. Overall WSO2 is straightforward and does not need customization."
 

Cons

"The Omada Identity SaaS version doesn't provide all the features Omada Identity on-premise provides."
"When you do a recalculation of an identity, it's hard to understand what was incorrect before you started the recalculation, and which values are actually updated... all you see are all the new fields that are provisioned, instead of seeing only the fields that are changed."
"The solution should be made more agile for customers to own or configure."
"We are still on Omada on-prem, but I understand that when Omada is in the cloud, you cannot send an attachment via email. We have some emails with attachments for new employees because we have to explain to them how to register and do their multi-factor authentication. All that information is in the attachment. People have to do that before they are in our system. We cannot give them a link to our Intranet and SharePoint because they do not yet have access. They have to register before that, so I need to send the attachments, but this functionality is not there in the cloud."
"Functionality and usability could be improved."
"Documentation can be improved. I have already filed a few suggestions to make documentation more clear and more representative of reality."
"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."
"If I had to name one thing, it would be the user interface (UI)."
"I would like One Identity Manager to offer an easier way for users to learn to use their new features."
"We would like the product to integrate with ServiceNow, since One Identity Manager and ServiceNow are two of our better tools."
"We take screenshots with the time stamp and give them to the auditors. That's cumbersome to do, even if we're only audited once or twice yearly. I take a screenshot and then show them the time to prove that the configuration is consistent. We have built-in processes to take regular screenshots and store them in a secure place for the auditors. It would be helpful if One Identity store the configuration details as a snapshot. It would also help with any rollbacks or change reviews that the organization might want to do."
"Their technical support's attitude is a bit strange. Quite often, we have to prove that there is a problem with the product rather than having them prove that there is not a problem with the product."
"They could improve the support. Sometimes, you make a service request and don't get an answer. Then, sometimes, we don't get a response that we want, and it's frustrating."
"One Identity should open the market with accessible training material and content so that more developers can be available. They have to improve their marketing strategy, partners, and vendors. One Identity should be attracting engineers to learn their product and get certified. They should have strong forums. They could have a certification program where any engineer can get certified. However, their overall approach is complex, which I do not prefer."
"The UI and user experience side of things needs improvement."
"One Identity Manager needs to come up with many more out-of-the-box connectors, similar to Workday and ServiceNow."
"This solution requires extensive knowledge to be used effectively as certain areas of its use are not user friendly."
"This solution does not have BPM workflows already integrated, we had to integrate the BPM module externally. They do not provide full-featured auditing and certification modules out of the box."
"There needs to be a good support model and easy-to-understand documentation."
"I found the initial setup to be very complex."
"The solution could improve its development from a user perspective."
"The solution seems to be pretty outdated."
"Sometimes working with the code is difficult because I search for documentation about the code and how to work with the code, which is where I believe they should improve, by providing some documentation on how to work with the code."
"The solution's licensing model could be more flexible, and pricing could be improved."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"It is not cheap. None of these solutions are cheap, but we have good pricing at least for now from a licensing perspective."
"My client deals directly with the Omada Identity team in terms of licensing. I never look at pricing, so I'm not aware of how much the solution costs, but it's worth the money. Often, when you begin to use Omada Identity and it takes a while to set up, it'll be irreversible, and you'd depend on and focus more on the functionality of the solution, rather than its price tag."
"Omada Identity offers a reasonable price point, but it will increase as we transition to the cloud."
"It is not cheap. It is expensive, but compared to what we did almost three years ago, it is value for money. It is worth it."
"There were a lot of administrator, partner, and supplier accounts for people who were no longer working for us but still in the system. So, we reduced the number of users no longer with the company, which saved us some money on licensing."
"The pricing is too high for SMBs."
"Omada Identity is competitively priced and delivers good value for our money."
"It is licensed per managed user per year."
"There is a one-time licensing cost, and there is also a yearly subscription fee."
"The price of One Identity Manager is cheaper than SailPoint."
"Its price is okay."
"The licensing cost is per user."
"One Identity is cost-efficient from a licensing perspective. However, one drawback is that it's expensive on the hardware side for the customer to set up. One Identity's professional services team recommends various components. They lose some of the cost advantage because the hardware is expensive and requires maintenance."
"It helps us save on licenses for applications because we are following the account lifecycle, as well as account reactivation."
"I believe the pricing is fair."
"We have the premium support and are very satisfied. They are always answer our questions very quickly. For the moment, we are very satisfied, but I think it's because we are paying for the premium support."
"I have found the solutions license is priced competitively compared to others."
"WSO2 Identity Server is not an expensive solution."
"We have to take their support, but that is a minimal charge if I'm comparing it to other identity managers."
"They should bring in some good pricing models to host the marketplace."
"I rate the product price an eight out of ten. There is a need to pay more for the extra features provided by the solution."
"At this time we are working with the open-source version."
