Overall Satisfaction with Forefront Identity Manager

Forefront Identity Manager is being used to secure the user login procedure and requests to new Windows Domain users to use their digital id, to keep a terminal session or sensitive access to shared resources in a secure and manage terms well and also administrate the life-cycle membership, accounting users, project managers and service desk techs.
  • 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.
  • 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.
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.
For Windows Server 2008 R2 is the best choice and it'll endorse the security outlines within the identity lifecycle management best practice, will give you full integration with the principal roles of a Domain and their complementary services as Exchange Server, and it'll allow to manage every single new object with ease and steady pace with it codeless provisioning features. Don't try to use FIM over the latest versions of Windows Server (2012 - 2016) for those IT admin I recommend the newest versions MIM (Microsoft Identity Manager), will fit perfect for these kind of scenarios.
