Bitium

Best suited for companies that use the same services across multiple teams, services that might require support at one point. For us, it is very easy to share access to either the IT support team or to me, as the Salesforce administrator, and we can easily take care of the issue and then log out without any hassle.

I would not strongly recommend it for single users, who don't need to share access to others.

Azure Active Directory

Microsoft Azure Active Directory is the gold standard for user management in the industry. It's one of the things that Microsoft does very well as far as adding a fully featured user management capability into one place. It supports oauth for web applications and is easily integrated into custom .net web apps. It also easily manages all the users and hooks directly into other Microsoft services.

Pros

Bitium

  • Sharing access. It's as easy as 1-2-3 with Bitium, no more hassle with sharing the actual password and then changing it, violating company policies, etc.
  • Lots of apps supported. In all three years since we are using Bitium, we haven't encountered any app that would not be supported by it.
  • Easy to set up strong passwords. Another very easy and intuitive feature: when you are setting up an app, you can ask Bitium to generate an A-level password automatically, that you can therefore use with ease.

Azure Active Directory

  • Conditional Access -- this is one of the biggest tools that any admin needs when it comes to securing when, where, and how users are accessing information. Especially if the information contains sensitive data types.
  • Multi-factor Authentication -- we have all our employees configured for MFA. This is incredibly easy to configure with Azure, as well as defining when MFA should be used through Conditional Access.
  • Audit Logs -- being able to track and identify a user's activity is pretty critical, especially when in incident response mode.

Cons

Bitium

  • Apps crashing. From time to time, some apps stop working in Bitium and they come back only after a while (1, 2, 8 hrs). We don't have a clear explanation for this yet.
  • Very tied to Chrome. Bitium is almost 'married' to Chrome, making it unusable in other browsers, which is sometimes problematic.
  • Sometimes slow Chrome Add-on. From time to time, the add-on seems so unresponsive that it is easier to go to the web dashboard and log in from there in the app you were looking for.

Azure Active Directory

  • There are a lot of features, so it can get confusing to get to where you want to go
  • Some areas do not offer as much granularity as desired
  • Hard to find certain features that are synonymous with on-premises Active Directory

Based on 29 answers
Microsoft has offered Azure Active Directory as a solution for a couple of decades now, so they have seen and anticipated almost any issue that an organization may face and can therefore help. The cloud offering of Azure Active Directory offers some additional "self healing" or monitoring services that can minimize the need for a service call. However, as with most large companies supporting a fast growing market, there may be some gaps in service knowledge (and particularly processing) from the front line / tier one staff as they follow a corporate script at first contact.

Azure Active Directory

In our particular scenario, we chose [Microsoft] Azure Active Directory because it has integration with tools and applications we use on a day to day basis, such as inTune, Autopilot, Office 365, Exchange Online, Dynamics 365, just to named a few.

Return on Investment

Bitium

  • Everyone is now required to have A-level passwords, so the overall level of security has increased a lot.
  • Having a secured way of sharing access to different apps, users are now very open to being helped more hands-on by the support teams, not fearing that their credentials might be exposed or later used.

Azure Active Directory

  • AAD has saved my organization a lot of time in user setups, restoring mailboxes or individual messages, auditing logins/logoffs or data changes and running reports.
  • It added functionality we did not previously have, such as reporting on user behavior in their systems (what they work on and what applications are used).
  • My IT Support Department has benefited greatly from adding AAD by being able to see software update needs for each workstation, managing startup items running in the system, checking versions of definitions and policies applied to each workstation and much more.
