More PingID Pros →

"The solution is very good at the management of the identity lifecycle.""Deployment takes a bit of time, however, once it's done properly, everything becomes very organized and easy to use.""The most valuable features of SailPoint IdentityIQ are the reporting because it is better than other solutions. The workflows can be customized to our requirements and the overall features are good.""This solution is easy to configure.""It provides a lot of out-of-the-box functionalities. You don't have to do too much custom development like other solutions such as Microsoft or NetIQ. It also has a lot of out-of-the-box connectors for different sources, directories, databases, etc. Its cloud version is working very well, and its pricing is okay. Its value for money is fine for most of the customers. It is also very flexible. They have frequent new releases and patches for fixing errors and things like that.""The solution is pretty stable and simple to use.""Access certification and provisioning are two of the solutions most valuable features.""The solution is stable and reliable."

Cons
"I think that the connection with like Microsoft Word, especially for Office 365, is a weak point that could be improved.""The timing of the token validity, if it could be extended, would be great. I'm not sure if there is even an option to configure these types of settings."

More PingID Cons →

"Compared to at least one other product some of the administrative tasks could be easier or more intuitive.""The mover process for this solution could be improved.""If you compare Saviynt and Okta Workforce Identity versus SailPoint IdentityIQ, SailPoint IdentityIQ needs to improve its UI.""They can work on their strategy for the on-premise version. They have to decide whether and for how long they will support the on-premise version. The new features first appear in the cloud, and after that, they are released for the on-premise version. In the cloud, you have more options and flexibility, which is absolutely normal. They have to have a clear strategy regarding whether they'll support the on-premises version with the same focus. The licensing for on-premise and cloud is a little bit different. They can make it the same.""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.""The solution, in general, is quite expensive.""The UI needs to be more user friendly. More concentration on historical policy violations would be great. In terms of new features, I would like to see artificial intelligence and machine language added.""The price of IdentityIQ could be lower. There are additional costs when you buy the licenses, and they force the customers to pay for them."
