The advice I might give to someone who is new to Saviynt is to be aware of Freshdesk. It is the community area for Saviynt users. It is good to have that community as there will be people wondering about the same questions and it makes it easier to find out the answer. One thing I noticed about other popular products like SAP or Microsoft Azure, is that when there is a large user-base you can Google a question and most likely you will find the answer somewhere. Saviynt's profile and usage is still expanding. It is not always so easy that you can just Google a question to find your answer. Freshdesk can provide a way to fill that gap. On a scale from one to ten (where one is the worst and ten is the best), I would rate my experience with Saviynt so far as maybe only a four-out-of-ten. This is my personal ranking from what I have experienced with the product. Be mindful that the rating reflects that I am in the process of discovering the tool. For example, one of the key selling points of Saviynt is the SoD module, which we have not deployed yet. I can only provide feedback on what I know to date. I think SoD is going to be a really important feature and I look forward to when it will be deployed in our environment. At that stage the rating may change.

It's certainly a very worthwhile and solid product. I think organizations need to understand what they're trying to achieve before they start these projects. If they're looking for the range of things that Saviynt offers, then it is a very solid product. I would rate Saviynt an eight out of ten. Nothing is a 10 and it's got some edges that need to smooth out as it matures. There are certain things that it doesn't do as elegantly as it could, but that's like most products, nothing's ideal. It's a very tameable product. I've got no particular as to which features could be added. It's just a matter of how you customize it to meet requirements. If you can live within the boundaries of what comes out of the box, it's very simple and straightforward, but very few organizations do that. So, the ability to accommodate customization is always an area that needs to be focused on.

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.

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.

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.
