The data presented on this page originated from the detailed analysis of
features of each individual identity management product. Each product was downloaded, installed
and tested. This was a long and often painful exercise. We have
used the installed product to individually explore a very long list of features related to identity management, architecture, integration and operation of the evaluated systems.
Each product and each feature was evaluated according to our methodology.
This produced a detailed feature
comparison data. The data were then summarized into charts.
Feature Comparison Summary
Following chart illustrates feature evaluation totals. It shows the sum of
all the features in all the feature groups.
The three charts that follow shows the results of each group of features.
These are perhaps the most important charts to explore. Each identity
management deployment is likely to have a slightly different set of
requirements and no single product can be perfect for all the cases.
Therefore it is important to choose a product that is strong in particular
areas of interest.
There is no single perfect product. That is technically almost impossible.
Each product is suitable for a slightly different deployment type. The last
chart summarizes suitability of the evaluated products for typical
The data shown in this chart are our summarization of the product overall
philosophy, quality and features. These data are independent from the
feature ratings shown in the other charts.
