Product Report: Beta Systems Software AG SAM Enterprise Identity Manager v1.1

Report Details

The Beta Systems Software AG SAM Enterprise Identity Manager belongs to the category of enterprise provisioning systems. Its core function is to reconcile identity information among different systems based on defined processes and connectors to the target systems in a structured, automated, and traceable manner. It also supports common provisioning features such as user self service, delegated administration and password management. Further functions include configurable workflows for request procedures and approvals as well as auditing functions for logging and analyzing modifications made using SAM Enterprise Identity Manager.

Even though version number 1.1 may imply otherwise, Beta Systems SAM Enterprise Identity Manager is not a newly developed solution, but instead represents the latest generation of the well-established SAM Jupiter product. The underlying reason for changing the name and versioning is that SAM Enterprise Identity Manager merges the previously separated mainframe-based implementation of the 3.x versions and the Unix- and Windows-based 4.x versions. This means that there are no longer separate versions for different systems. Instead, SAM Enterprise Identity Manager can be run on either z/OS, Solaris or Windows. Additional Unix and Linux versions are under development. The functionality is identical regardless of the system platforms used.

While there is still room for improvement in certain areas, particularly as regards complete integration of workflows and attestation, Beta Systems Software AG still scores high in many other areas. These include the broad platform support, excellent mainframe functionality, significantly improved workflows, strong functions for role management, and the comprehensive web service interfaces.

Due to this breadth of features, Beta Systems Software AG's SAM Enterprise Identity Manager represents a highly interesting option for realizing provisioning projects. This holds especially true for the finance industry - which Beta Systems Software AG has been catering to for many years, accumulating solid implementation expertise -, medium-sized businesses using the entry package, as well as other sectors, where the product is also viable and steadily gaining in popularity. Kuppinger Cole views SAM Enterprise Identity Manager as a solution that definitely deserves consideration when deciding on a suitable provisioning product.
