Likelihood to Recommend

Forefront Identity Manager (Discontinued)

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.

  • 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.

Alternatives Considered

Forefront Identity Manager (Discontinued)

I've selected FIM because we use Windows Server 2008 R2 for terminal connections and it gives me a decent security layer to manage the identity lifecycle deployment from a single interface reducing the time and effort investment, and avoid dealing with extend coding procedures and long deployments stages, but also grants the opportunity to learn with an outstanding simplified troubleshooting path.

Return on Investment

Forefront Identity Manager (Discontinued)

  • Reduce the amount of time invested doing troubleshooting.
  • Reduce the IT admin complexity by presenting an intuitive UX with codeless provisioning.
  • IT Admins can simplify the process to create workflows with the web-based GUI of ILM 2 portal, and also include more complex workflows designed outside of the portal by importing XAML files.
