Reasonable tool

What do you like best?

It looks like it is a secure tool. You really trust on it when you see it's look and feel and the way messages are shown to the user. It is a very useful tool when you have many many users and passwords that change frequently and maybe have different lenghts or complexity requirements.

What do you dislike?

This is something I don't like from this kind of tools, I completely forget my passwords, so when I don't have access via the tool, I forget it and need to change it. Never figured out how to improve this part of my process.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I cannot think of any recommendations to others. The only important thing is that you need to work closely with end users until they become familiar to the tool. Once that happens, you are done!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reduced number of Password Resets / Account Lockouts in more than 25%. Amazing value if you consider the efforts required to document and track all these requests.

One of the best, not as much as a single software

What do you like best?

The best part of ITAM (now ISAM) is undoubtfully the fact that it can integrate in a big IBM security infrastructure. Of course it gets the job done and allows a pretty good control over accesses, the SDI software capabilites that come along also are a plus since they allow for good control over your whole LDAP environment.

The last features implementations in the version 9.0.0.1 are simple but quite important making life easier for IT deliverers (especially the network implementations).

What do you dislike?

The appliance version to where it is headed gives very little control over the system, this also means that the integration is of course easier. But one of the big upsides of ISAM is it's elasticity so not being able to fully control the system is often a big problem.

Also on a point-to-point comparison, ISAM could fall short if compared to other products, it's plus is really in integration with a more wide IBM security suite.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Think about the full picture, consider a wider IBM security solution to have full advantage.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Control over accesses, if correctly integrated we also managed to have full visibility over identities and user id syncronization and management (thanks to ISAM-ISIM/IGI integration)

What Other IT Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

8.2 ISAM ESSO Review

What do you like best?

Fully customizable solution to automate alot of different kinds of applications.

What do you dislike?

not too much community support for profiling and lack of IBM resources for profiling. Managment of the agent versions is cumbersome across large scale implementations.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its a good product to use and solves alot of automation problems and legacy applicaton integrations. You need a high level of experitse in the profiling of applciations in house depending on how complex the applications are.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cutting down time to enter multiple usernames and passwords across many applications for call centers. We've cut down support call times across mulpile apps.

Access Granted!

What do you like best?

The centralization of access management across a large portal is key for maintaining sanity, for the business and for the user. The concept that Tivoli AM introduces is a common ACL system that allows the developer more time to worry about actual application features instead of how authentication needs to work across unique web locations.

What do you dislike?

Compatibility with server systems. Lotus Domino version 8.0 is required for Sametime 8.5. Upgrading these systems is not the most straightforward.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a pretty limited solution, there are better things out there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Single Sign on Access across several internal applications for the same business unit.
