Saviynt Room for Improvement

An area for improvement in Saviynt is that there's a limitation on the number of logs you can get from the past twenty-four hours. For example, if the data is huge, the tool can only give you a maximum of one hundred logs. You can't get any further than that. In the next version of Saviynt, however, you can get more logs and you'll see them inside the log rotation. For example, when you're trying to search inside the log, you can select a date range, and then you can search for a particular log. We haven't used that new log rotation feature yet, but it's included in the next release of Saviynt.

Another area for improvement in the tool is that it doesn't have a server monitoring feature, so if your server has a high load, it should give you a warning. You're supposed to get an alert similar to what's being done in WebLogic. In WebLogic, we had a separate facility, but in Saviynt, that feature's missing.

Sometimes, we do face some issues with the certification, as it's a long certification. For example, if you're launching all the certifications at once, that particular job will have an issue, but it won't affect user access. In terms of jobs, Saviynt doesn't have the facility to run many jobs on a particular server. If they had that facility, that will be super awesome.

One feature we'd like to see in Saviynt in its next release is the log rotation. With a third-party tool such as Splunk, you can get these logs and data from one year, so if Saviynt can add that same feature, that will be awesome. Having the capability to access logs that are a week or a month old would be great. Currently, the tool offers limited logs, so it's a bit difficult for us to debug. For example, even though we are having the same issue, that issue might not replicate now. We need more logs and data for debugging purposes.

Another feature we'd like added to the tool is the job feature that would allow us to utilize the job services even if we have more users because currently, it will stop other jobs which had already been scheduled if we reach the limit. Saviynt needs to have the facility to run the job from the server, from the backend. It would be very good to have that in the next release.

Improving the certification process is also another feature we'd like to see in the tool.

It would be good if there were particular functionalities on some connectors. The stability of the connection also needs to be improved. There should be more capability on the rest API in the next release.

We have around 60,000 employees. There are a lot of tasks being created and interactions between different applications. When the number of requests is very high, there is a lag and it takes time for the data to refresh. We also sometimes have performance issues when the solution fails to process the data between two different applications. Customization needs to occur so that the data between two different applications will flow smoothly but here are times when our scheduled jobs get stuck. I think that performance, in terms of customization available, and product functionality including the UI could be improved. 

I know they're implementing the PAM solution but I'm not sure how it's going to work. There's a lot there and I'm waiting to see how it holds up because the product is basically identity management. As they move into a PAM tool, it will be interesting to see how they implement it and how it will perform.

It should support more customizations. In SailPoint, we can do many customizations, but we are not able to do that in Saviynt. For workflows and other things, we can only use what is already in place. Saviynt has a lot of scope for improvement on the customization part.

Because the application is hosted on AWS cloud, there is some dependency and that affects our bottom line. A couple of times we've had to stop everything for two or three days. That issue should be solved because when you are live and working on production, having downtime means losing business. Things can also just slow down while we're using the application and although it's not downtime, it can kill a lot of production hours.

It would be nice if managing exceptions was easier. 

The configuration process at the beginning can be difficult, depending on the complexity of the company.

The custom application integration is a little complex, and this tool doesn't provide so many plugins or additional applications.
