Atlassian
For companies that are already using other Atlassian systems, then Atlassian Crowd will fit in very well. This is especially the case if the company is not yet big enough to use LDAP for user management, Atlassian Crowd can act as a temporary solution until the company outgrows it, as it is much easier and simpler than LDAP.

Univention
Univention Corporate Server is well suited:
  1. If an Organization would like to use it as a complete Active Directory Server.
  2. If an Organization wants to deploy other applications which are important like SSO, Mail Server, 2FA etc., as with one click all these Apps will be integrated magically thus reducing the Admin job considerably.
  3. Web based management which will be quite useful for the Admins who are from Windows background only.
  4. Univention as a company which has close to 2 decades of experience.

Cons
Atlassian
  • Some systems that are not crucial turned into more work than what was originally deemed necessary to successfully deploy Crowd.
  • Linux support was there as it was built mostly to support Windows based systems
  • Documentation was supported but most issues we had required us to contact Atlassian support.

  • As Univention is from Germany, lot of informative articles are in German but English articles are also good but less in number.

Overall, support is good, you get quick responses from Atlassian's official support system, and documentation is decent enough for you to find what you need.

These products allow you to install them on your own infrastructure, so you can manage all aspects of them which can prevent you from getting throttled from API calls. When you hit a certain threshold of scale you may need to switch off of Atlassian Cloud to your own hardware. When you are a small startup, however, this product is probably a good starting point.

We have evaluated Zentyal and ClearOS but we found out that UCS is more suited to every Organization.

Return on Investment
Atlassian
  • New systems are tough when it comes to an ROI, as a dollar amount for saving time on a sign-in can be tough to track. Like most new systems that makes things slightly easier to execute as an end user or manage or support, it really might come down to the existing structure of how a company manages its users.
  • The positives are always with the end user, which I have to say, Crowd was able to accomplish.
