AWS Identity & Access Management

We used IAM to give access to different department with different services. No need to use different accounts to use different services.

I think that MIM is great for compliance since it reduces the number of logins that are required by users. Most offices have post-it notes with logins floating around because there are so many to remember or there are "shared" logins. This reduces the number of logins to 1 and you can easily revoke access in one fell swoop. This prevents gaps and holes with terminations and updates to select groups are super simple.

Cons

AWS Identity & Access Management

  • For Windows Server 2008 R2 Servers is a great tool to set a codeless provisioning over new objects.
  • Can easily integrate with Active Directory and Exchange Servers, improving the identity sync between the final user and the lifecycle management.
  • Improvements in the areas of performance, simplified deployment easing the troubleshooting tasks, better documentation knowledge base, and more language support.
  • The codeless provisioning provided in FIM can sustain a variety from high demand to mid-size scenarios for account lifecycle management.

I used Azure services a little but I think IAM is the best one so we are using IAM and will keep using this.

It is Microsoft. We are a Microsoft shop, primarily. It integrates deeply with Active Directory making it good for Microsoft Active Directory shops.

Return on Investment

AWS Identity & Access Management

  • Everything is under one account. If you use more AWS you get billed less.
  • Sharing files and other documents in different departments is so easy.
  • Easy & fast downloads.
sandeep singh | TrustRadius Reviewer

Forefront Identity Manager (Discontinued)

  • We see a positive impact simply in the time savings alone. Chasing accounts around is time-consuming and prone to error.
  • The cost to us is negligible to the value it provides.
