Overall Satisfaction with CA Identity Manager

[At our organization CA Identity Manager is] used in identity management and governance and in processes such as user access requests and access certifications.
  • It has complete identity management and governance capabilities equipped with a simple, intuitive user experience and helps simplify processes such as user access requests and access certifications. This in turn helps in improved productivity and user satisfaction.
  • Bringing on new users and removing existing user when new employee/contractors join or leave an organization can be improved by linking directly to HR module.
  • The slightly complicated GUI makes drill down difficult for a new user.
  • For us, it was a fairly easy implementation over 60 day period that provided ROI fairly quickly
The final contenders were CA and Oracle - Oracle was tedious to implement and maintain while on the other hand CA was easy to implement and maintain and came at a much lower price.
If an organization is looking for a good comprehensive identity management/governance suite that is easy to implement, CA identity manager may be a good/robust product. It is best to understand specific use case for your organization and try out the product before a final purchase decision as is the case with all sw products.
