Easy to implement, stable, and the reporting is good
Pros and Cons
  • "This product works well out of the box and if you don’t want to do a lot of configuration then this is the best tool."
  • "The biggest drawback is that for every change you want to make, you have to go back to them and ask for it."

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for user authentication. It is integrated into our workflows and we use it for reporting.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ease of implementation. This product works well out of the box and if you don’t want to do a lot of configuration then this is the best tool.

The reporting features are good.

What needs improvement?

The biggest drawback is that for every change you want to make, you have to go back to them and ask for it. There haven’t got a tool to make modifications. Ideally, we would like to be able to make changes from our side.

Saviynt is a very new tool, which makes it difficult to find good people with knowledge about implementing and using it. I think that in four to five years, there will be lots of people with experience in the area.

In the future, I would like to see extra certificates included.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Saviynt for about one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of Saviynt is good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Expanding this platform is a little bit difficult. I would say that the scalability is average.

We have approximately 4,000 users, of which perhaps 15 are technicians.

How are customer service and technical support?

I would rate the technical support about nine out of ten.

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

Before using this solution, we used Oracle Identity and Access Management (IdM). We are still using IdM for some systems.

How was the initial setup?

This solution is easy to implement, although our requirements were bulky so it took about four months to deploy.

What about the implementation team?

We worked directly with the vendor, who assisted us with the implementation. The deployment team had four people and two people work on support and maintenance.

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

If you need to make any changes then there are additional fees. For example, if there is a user named Jonathan in the system and you want to change it then you have to pay for the change. It has to be done on their side.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing this solution, we also evaluated Omada and SailPoint. The main factors in our decision were pricing and that Saviynt is easy to implement.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is considering this solution is that if your user base is small and you do not require a great deal of customization, then this is the best tool.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Private Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Has deep integration with enterprise systems and has a good approach to solving the identity problems
Pros and Cons
  • "Saviynt has better integration with enterprise systems like SAP, Microsoft, Adobe, and AWS."
  • "Saviynt cannot customize based on customer needs."

What is our primary use case?

If the customer is looking at identity management as an access risk problem, not as an operational excellence solution, then we approach them with Saviynt. Our customers are enterprise-level so that means they have anywhere from five to ten thousand users.

What is most valuable?

The first valuable feature is the approach to solving the identity problem. Access risk is the focus of solving any problem. The second is their deeper integration with enterprise systems, like SAP, Microsoft, Adobe, and AWS. Deeper integration brings instability into the intact elements and ongoing systems. That angle of the deeper integration is not available with any of the products. That gives Saviynt an edge.

What needs improvement?

I think their interface is one clear area of needed improvement. Also, Saviynt cannot customize based on customer needs. The interface could also be more intuitive to the user.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been working with Saviynt for a few months now.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of Saviynt is one of the concerns that we have heard from customers.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is a question mark because they have not been successful in the places where you have 200,000 to 300,000 identities. I have not seen any performance benchmarking for Saviynt.  

How was the initial setup?

I would say that the setup was of medium complexity but it was not difficult. There are more complex products available, like Oracle, IBM, and others, so it's definitely better than those.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend Saviynt to clearly identify this solution. If you can do the proof of value first, then go for the implementation. Based on limited exposure, I would rate it at eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?
