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.

Univention Corporate Server (UCS)

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

Forefront Identity Manager (Discontinued)

  • 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.

Univention Corporate Server (UCS)

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

Alternatives Considered

Forefront Identity Manager (Discontinued)

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

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

Return on Investment

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.

  • UCS is truly Open Source.
  • UCS has surpassed our expectations.
