One Identity Manager Room for Improvement

There is room for improvement to their password self-service tool. We're actually leaving that tool right now because it's just been horrible. We've discussed that with them, but for such an easy functional feature it is lacking. 

Number two is their upgrades. We're going to 8.12 right now and everything is running very smoothly but this is actually the first upgrade that has gone off well. Even the other "dots" have taken us six months or longer to get through QA testing. Those are the two key areas for improvement.

Having new features for web developers in the One Identity Manager shop is an area for improvement. Another area for improvement in the tool is its ServiceNow connection as ServiceNow is a major ITSM system player, but the current out-of-the-box feature proposed by One Identity Manager can only make simple incident requests to the system. My company is now in full ICL design, so it prefers for all concerns or requests to be sent properly to ServiceNow, so my company can have better control over the incident requests and be able to sort those out.

The tool fits all my needs today, except for the ServiceNow connector. That's the only additional feature I'd like to see in the next release of One Identity Manager.

In terms of the policy and role management features, I have a mix of opinions. In terms of role management, it is okay, but I would like to see the product go more towards attribute-based access management. Regarding the policies, it has been okay working for our environment so far, but I would like to suggest some improvement along the front of synchronization. That would be nice.

One Identity Manager has had a little bit of an impact on our cloud-IT strategy. Right now, they run an on-prem solution. Our preferred solution for cloud is Azure. So, we have yet to determine how we want to take this forward, because at this time, we are only using Graph APIs to do some Azure-related actions.

If there could be some connectors for more things, like a Cosmos DB connector, then that would be helpful.

It is a great product. I don't know why it is not so marketable in the US and not used as much in the US as opposed to the EU. Sometimes, I feel like it is very hard to find people because the solution is not as popular in the US. If you need to find new resources, it becomes tough since some people are hesitant to learn a product that is not well-known. It is hard to find some people with exactly this experience because it is not so popular in the US.

A room for improvement in One Identity Manager is its analytics. Though it's getting better from version to version, the analytics feature still needs improvement.

I would appreciate more analytical features in the next release of One Identity Manager, so I can do a better analysis. Another vendor, for example, has a self-certification system where you can send people, then create a type of profile or screen for each person, and the person can see his entitlement and the risks behind that entitlement, so then the person makes a decision on whether he wants to keep or let go of it, and that's an out-of-the-box feature that would be good to see in One Identity Manager.

Another feature I'd like to see in One Identity Manager that would be very interesting is integration with SIEM or any log collection product for both access and usage. For example, I'd be able to see that I have access to a particular application and also get information on how many times I've accessed it in the last year, last few months, etc. It's a feature that would be great to have in One Identity Manager.

The web interface has room for improvement. It could be more performant and the design of the web interface is relatively complicated. It could be simplified.

The philosophy behind One Identity Manager has always been that there's not one way of working and that you can set it up according to your own identity and access management philosophy, but what would make it better is by shortening the setup time and the learning curve time. If the team could create some best practices with a wizard to set the solution up within companies, that would be a killer feature and would help make identity access management more approachable. That would also help companies that don't have the resources or a dedicated team to set up One Identity Manager.

What I'd like to see in the next release of the solution is the addition of just released application governance parts. That would sound promising. It would also be interesting if the team sets up best practice startup wizards, so you could set up One Identity Manager according to selectable best practice wizards instead of setting it up completely by yourself.

The blessing and curse with One Identity Manager was its flexibility and the ability to solve business problems in a number of ways. We fell into that trap of over-customization which made upgrading the product difficult. An improvement would be to offer guides on how you should set up a base configuration. There should also be integration guides to key systems like Active Directory.

In addition to that, we had some slowness with the IT shop when we had significant amounts of data, users, etc., in the system and there were some slow database queries that needed to be optimized and patched. This caused some slowness when running Attestation campaigns.

The solution can be improved from a front-end point of view. It slows the portal down. The tool is too customized in our organization, and we face many challenges with the portal. We were able to make some improvements performance-wise to the portal slowness. It is particularly slow if you are using it in a large organization.

One area that could be improved is the speed of performance - it's often a bit slower because of the size of its database.
