SailPoint IdentityIQ Room for Improvement

Matt Thomson - PeerSpot reviewer
Principal Consultant at UNIFY Solutions

There is really not so much that SailPoint needs to improve. It has been in the market for a while and has well embedded as a market leader in the Identity Governance Space. We have just done an upgrade (v7-.8.1) and it was straight foward well tested and there was no major issues, we even managed to deploy to production a week ahead of schedule. We are now working with the client to leverage some of the new features and such, so there is not a lot that I can confirm that would be missing from a product that I was already happy with.  

The only thing about SailPoint that I might suggest to improve is the user interface could be improved from an administration point of view. From a request point of view we are leveraging ServiceNow and Sailpoints SNOW catalogue integration. Having had the opportunity to compare SailPoint and One Identity with past work, I personally prefer the One Identity's user interface, especially for user administration of the system. It could be simplified or somewhat more user-friendly for administrative tasks and functions.

The report functionality and dashboard of the access manager could be improved.

In the future, there should be improvements integrating into cloud ecosystems, such as AWS or Azure. At the moment we have to purchase many different solutions to have a fully operational intelligent identity package. There are some features lacking in identity and the DevOps solutions.

While you can scale the solution, it is expensive to do so. The solution, in general, is quite expensive. If the pricing was better, the adoption rate would be much higher. 

Deployment can take a while.

At least in the UAE, they need more presence on the ground. It would be good to have more people to assist us to help us adopt this technology and become certified on it. The bigger the channel here is, in the UAE, the more people will start to train on it, and the cost of the deployment will become cheaper when there is competition. Right now, there's some kind of monopoly. If you have two experts in the entire UAE, they're going to raise their prices so that the cost is very high.

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.

While the setup is very easy, the real difficulty lies in creating the connectors for work service. 

When it comes to queries and analysis, I find the reporting module to be very low, very simple. 

The solution could have better graphical features, in respect of ADDQ, when it comes to diagrams and pictures. The results for reporting use graphical layout. There should be better graphics for the interface in respect of reporting.

The solution has plenty of places that need improvement and attention.

The connectors are far too manual. This needs to be automated a bit.

The provision is not very intuitive. The interface is not user-friendly at all. They could redesign a lot of its functionality to make it easier to use.

The initial setup could be simplified. It's difficult right now.

Implementations rarely go well.

I can't think of other features that I would like to see in a future release.

An issue needing improvement is that the solution is heavily focused on one's identity, while there has been a move to providing identity as a security service. While it provides these services, the solution can still not do the identity management for the cloud. As such, the security feature can be improved.

Essentially, it manages and helps to create all the IDs and to manage the identities and accesses. What it doesn't do is provide notice in the event of a vulnerability or offense from the security. That's where tools like CyberArk or Netskope, which are more CASB tools, come into play.

I can think of no additional features needing improvement.

If you compare Saviynt and Okta Workforce Identity versus SailPoint IdentityIQ, SailPoint IdentityIQ needs to improve its UI.

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.

It should also have more standard connectors. Its price should also be reduced.

The prices could be slightly reduced to match other products in the market. 

The UI of the solution could be more customizable so we could change the workflows to suit our needs.  There is not much customization offered in SailPoint connectors. We had to customize the out-of-the-box connector to meet our needs and keep track of this customization for future upgrades.

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.
