We evaluated Microsoft Identity Manager prior to selecting The Okta Identity Cloud. We found that The Okta Identity Cloud was a more robust solution and more widely accepted with our software applications. The Okta Identity Cloud also included the provisioning and deprovisioning of user accounts more seamlessly with less human involvement. Multifactor authentication was also a bonus when comparing with other solutions that required a separate MFA solution.
We have setup an automated user account provisioning with The Okta Identity Cloud. Its does a good job of processing for our onboarding and ID management user accounts in conjunction with our active directory environment.
