    Copes well with evolving environments and it's easy to look after the source code
    Pros and Cons
    • "The basic setup is straightforward and takes minutes to complete."
    • "The support isn't ideal - because the product is open-source, it relies on your own ability to make it work unless you pay for support at a high hourly rate."

    What is our primary use case?

    My main uses are integrating external applications and user management.

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable feature is that it's open-source, so it's easy to look after the source code.

    What needs improvement?

    An area for improvement would be that you have to be aware of your interfaces when making changes to the source code, as if you change an integration that is not in-box, that integration can be broken. There are also issues with integration with paid solutions from Microsoft or other identity management vendors, as if they stop working, you have a big problem because they have changed something which is not well documented, and you have to deal with it without breaking copyright (reverse engineering). There are few companies publishing solutions  including source code for integration with closed code solutions. Use is always on own risk - no guarantees for up to date code interfacing to closed code solution.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    This solution is really stable - it's able to run in an evolving environment.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    This solution is suitable for small to large organizations.

    How are customer service and support?

    The support isn't ideal - because the product is open-source, it relies on your own ability to make it work unless you pay for support at a high hourly rate. Their responsiveness and willingness to make changes also vary, and it can take a long time to get to talk to somebody who will give you proper answers. However, you can offer them more money if you're interested in solving a particular issue, and they are more user-friendly than commercial companies.

    Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

    Previously, I worked with Novell Identity Manager (now called NetIQ Identity Manager). It is a great solution, but its code use is not free of charge, so you had to raise funding for the code usage (license or subscription) plus deployment and would still get vendor-locked.

    How was the initial setup?

    The basic setup is straightforward and takes minutes to complete. The integration of any information system depends on the complexity of the system and the processes you would like to deploy. The environment is ready in minutes, but the solution itself needs comprehensive analyses, discovery of processes and dependencies, and turning them down to configuration files.

    What was our ROI?

    ROI depends on the partner that the customer finds for deployment, but I would say it's a better rate than commercial ones.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    Licensing - support is defined by the number of users served by solution - it's about 10,000-15,000 euros annually for 10,000 users.

    What other advice do I have?

    EVOLVEUM has really good in-house publishing, with publicly available binaries that you can deploy in your Docker or Kubernetes environment. Before implementing, make sure to study this solution and how to deploy it - there are lots of examples available. I would give this solution a rating of eight out of ten.

    Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

    On-premises

    A stable and scalable Open Source Identity Management system with many nice features
    Pros and Cons
    • "I like that it's open-source, and it's working. It has nice features, and it looks like it's easy to maintain."
    • "I think that the product is missing some of the identity governance functions—for example, the legal stuff and GDPR, and so on. But I think they are currently working on it."

    What is our primary use case?

    We use EVOLVEUM midPoint for Identity Management. Automating HR Processes - Joiner/Mover/Leaver, connecting source and target systems to synchronize user accounts. 

    How has it helped my organization?

    Because the product is automating processes, if somebody joins the company, based on his/her role within company he/she get proper rights and accesses to the target systems. The privileges can be reviewed and evaluated continually. At every point of time, you know, who has access to what resources. In the end of the day, it eliminates human errors, which protects company assets and good will. 

    What is most valuable?

    I like that it's open-source, and it's working. It has nice features, and it is very easy to deploy and maintain.

    What needs improvement?

    I think that the product is missing some of the identity governance functions related the data provenance. But I think they are currently working on it. 

    Sometimes the GUI crashes or freezes or doesn't work properly, however, I don't see that as a huge problem. 

    I would appreciate SAP CUA connector out of the box and more documentation/possibilities on hooks/plugin points.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been dealing with EVOLVEUM midPoint for one and a half years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    In my experience, it was very stable. Sometimes it can be a little slow, but the system didn't crash. Depends on the underlying infrastructure. 

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    It's a scalable solution. I tried a scenario with 2,000 identities. It wasn't that big, but I was satisfied.

    Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

    It is doing what you expect it should do, that is nice about it. 

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup is very straightforward.

    What about the implementation team?

    I implemented this solution by myself. 

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    We're EVOLVEUM partners, and I tried it without a license.

    What other advice do I have?

    I would tell potential users to at least try it and see. Many of the deployments can be set up within few seconds. It's definitely good to try it and maybe also integrate it within company.

    On a scale from one to ten, I would give EVOLVEUM midPoint an eight.

    Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

    On-premises
