Overall Satisfaction with The Okta Identity Cloud

We Implement Okta for Different customers. Okta used for federated authentication mainly Access management.Integartion of Okta with different apps using Protocols Like Oauth , SAML, OpenID etc for Seamless single sign on experience . Our organisation conduct internal trainings also for Okta, so that we are well verse with all its feature and provide solution to Customers as per their requirements
  • Single Sign ON
  • Federated Authentication
  • Password Management
  • App Integration
  • Okta Integration Network
  • Its more Centered towards Directory
  • Not more customization Options I feel
  • Okta is cloud , hence you don't need Initial setup . Saves you lot of time
  • Vast Variety of Training available, quickly and easily to buildup team.
  • Pain for remembering multiple passwords or multiple targets at ease
Universal Directory Of Okta, provides Identity repository. Here We had choice, who can be profile master of Identity. The precedence functionality helped, like for few customers here were multiple sources for contractors employees, hence were the different masters for them. With okta and certain logic it was easy to figure out who will be identity source master. And all Identities at one place.
I enrolled for Okta Essential trainings and Okta Advance mastering skill trainings. I say they are very well versed so that post one can directly work on Okta Platform. Recently I'm preparing for Okta certification, hence I'm doing the training assigned for Partners, that too specifically for Okta Development. I would rate that training as 5 on 5 because the language and ease of understating is at its peak. They have dynamic trainings. Also, when you actually work on customers environment and you are stuck on some topic, there ae vast pages published for your help
Uptime is beneficial for everyone in IT industry or anywhere. This has eliminated the worry for availability, so that teams can focus on different aspects like Implementation. Having more robust architecture. In today's Ere where everything is moving to cloud. High availability becomes important aspect and getting that we can focus on remaining part

Do you think Okta delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Okta's feature set?

Yes

Did Okta live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Okta go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Okta again?

Yes

I have Exposure to Okta and SailPoint. And they go hand in hand. Where SailPoint manages the Identity Platform and Okta manages the Access management and Federated authentication. There is not such specific to compare. But for SailPoint you need infra, and Deep understanding of code and tool is required. On okta front its more user friendly
Basically, there are whole lot of Applications in OKta Integration Network. So whenever you want to integrate those , you are just few steps away. More understandable rules and policies . OKtA is best suited for Single sign on federated authentication. There are options Like Just in Time provision So as soon as user is there in Source you can provision it with no wait
