Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Azure Active Directory

Currently, Microsoft Azure Active Directory is being used by a department and select few users in a Pathfinder phase. We have limited its use as we have not fully implemented the cloud in the Enterprise, although our goal is to reach that in the next year or two. Right now, we are finding the ease of use with Azure Active Directory in terms of its simplicity, and the fact that many users can have different roles to leverage it, based on whatever workload they support.
  • Simple to use interface, easy to find items you are looking for
  • Alerts can be managed and configured pretty easily
  • Plenty of features for different workloads
  • There are a lot of features, so it can get confusing to get to where you want to go
  • Some areas do not offer as much granularity as desired
  • Hard to find certain features that are synonymous with on-premises Active Directory
  • Hybrid / Direct Synchronization with On-Premises Infrastructure
  • Identity Management
  • Virtual Network Capability
  • It has helped us evaluate our future in the cloud as we plan to migrate
  • It allows us to scale down our on-premise infrastructure resulting in cost-savings
  • It has put a bigger workload on some, adding to statement of work, in terms of evaluation
Microsoft Azure Active Directory better fits our need as we are deeply invested in the Microsoft ecosystem. The transition to another Microsoft product that fully encompasses our infrastructure better fits our needs. Cost is also a factor that comes into play, as we believe we can get a cheaper price already being invested with Microsoft.

Do you think Microsoft Azure Active Directory delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Microsoft Azure Active Directory's feature set?

Yes

Did Microsoft Azure Active Directory live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Microsoft Azure Active Directory go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Microsoft Azure Active Directory again?

Yes

Microsoft Azure Active Directory is very well-suited for user identity in the cloud, especially in a hybrid instance. Syncing your on-premises infrastructure with the cloud, Microsoft makes it easy to achieve this. In addition, configuring virtual networks and virtual machines is an easier process than expected. If you are currently all on-premises, then Azure Active Directory would not really help your use case, although if you are thinking of migrating to the cloud, you can then experiment with it.
