ISIM product has a robust workflow engine which can be customized to fit in various business processed. With ability to write custom extensions in java, one can use it to call webservices, to send data to applications with custom identity stores. ISAM for eWeb is built for efficiency. It has low footprint and has hardly any overhead on transactions. ISAM and ISIM support is also excellent.
It is good to grow internal expertise in product. It will help with long support support and customize product as business needs change. It helps to have a team of system administrators and java developers managing and customizing ISIM. ISAM support team members should have good understanding of directory, web technlogies.
ISIM has a very robust workflow engine that can be customized to meet business needs. Excellent support for ISIM and ISAM.
IBM's ISIM support is exceptional. ISAM support can improve.
ISIM allows workflow customization and writing custom connectors. With that flexibility, data can be pushed/pulled from any end point. It is very easy to write custom webservices using ISIM API's. This allows for data feeds to come from any end point as long as end product can call a webservice. ISAM is a seasoned product, allowing various methods to meet backend application needs. It also has WAF built in with new release.

Vendor isn't engaged and partnering.
Try to see whether the vendor is willing to partner after implementation.
Breadth of offering, end to end.
Continuous conversation and partnership.
Evaluate other vendors with Industry standard template implemention. More OOB.
Not really engaged.

Post go-live support has been challenging.
Be very thorough with the contractual language.
ISIM has the capability of interfacing with many different end-point technologies.
The governance features of ISIM are cumbersome at best.
There seems to be a very small team dedicated to IAM as a service at IBM, it would be nice to see more resources dedicated to this space.
We need to focus on our processes first and then worry about implementing the technology in a sustainable manner.
There is a disconnect between IBM's project and operations team which makes on-going support a challenge.
ISIM integrates with many different end-point technologies for provisioning.

With the vendor buyout happening in the middle of implementation there was a lot of rework. Our QA environment was built with Lighthouse but our production was built with IBM. We are still trying to get them.
IBM in the Cloud issues we have had were mainly due to not starting over when they bought Lighthouse. However, they have been very helpful and willing to look into our environment.
The technical team is great.
ISIM reporting is not very good.
Ticketing system is hard to follow with IAM.
I would have rebuilt QA with IBM to make sure that IBM understood our needs.
We are still new in this space so the jury is still out on if they can handle our system.
Support is hard with the ticketing system but once we get the right people engaged - they are very good to work with.
QA still does not match our production environment.

Great tool set, recommend for all size of companies.
Don't jump into lot of things in the begning. Start with a simple use case.
Simple to use.
Use agile approach for implementation. Partner with a SI.
