Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud App ID

My company uses IBM Cloud App ID as a way to add authentication, secure our backend and APIs and manage the access controls and user data for our mobile and web apps. I was involved in developing mobile apps to aid our organization's research efforts. IBM Cloud App ID has allowed us to have a much easier time to set up identity management and get our participants involved with the research.
  • Seamless integration.
  • Fast set-up.
  • Easy user access control.
  • Requires buy-in into the ecosystem.
  • Cloud subscription.
  • Initial learning curve.
  • Enabled us to recruit more testers.
  • Augmented the IBM Cloud subscription.
  • Single Sign On was helpful.
It was something very useful because it helps with getting testers onboarded for our research apps and experiments. Many of our testers are repeat testers so having their credentials for single sign-on reduces the need for multiple registrations. As such, the authentication feature has greatly benefited our use case.
In one of our research projects, we had to make use of the personalization features. This meant profiling users that had registered, filtering them and then presenting different views on their mobile application. There was some learning curve regarding the configuration of IBM Cloud App ID, especially for mobile apps. However once we got used to it, it was much easier to make subsequent personalizations.
Azure Active Directory is a similar service to IBM Cloud App ID. Due to the extensive IBM Cloud infrastructure that my organisation employs, it was natural to make use of IBM Cloud App ID. The way that IBM Cloud App ID integrates with the rest of the IBM Cloud ecosystem makes work and integration much easier.
IBM Cloud App ID is well suited if you are part of the IBM Cloud ecosystem. When we built our mobile apps with IBM Cloud App ID, it made integration and registration of users rather painless. This is something good for researchers as we can easily get access to our testers and have them using the tools.
