  • The biggest hurdle is that it integrates with Active Directory
  • This simplifies my life since I don't have disparate locations for the same identity
  • Our SSRS users now have a single location for access and role-based views, this is a huge positive for them.
  • Cloud integration needs some love. I think most companies nowadays have a hybrid model with some in-house and some cloud. A complete integration would be a huge win.

  • Improved self-service password reset which supports all current web browsers
  • Improvement to the reporting engine via the system center service manager and MS SQL Server reporting services (SSRS)
  • WebServices Connector to connect to SAP ECC 5/6, Oracle PeopleSoft, and Oracle eBusiness
  • 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.

  • Sync of local on premises with the cloud
  • Allows for users to manage their credentials
  • Allows for two-factor authentication
  • Fortunately we have a higher education campus license so it is not as bad for us, but, in my opinion, the product is otherwise very much over-priced.
  • I think documentation is lacking. This is the case with many Microsoft products. You have to do a lot of self research and self teaching to get the product up and running and learn how to use it. Thank goodness there are a lot of resources that can be Googled.
