"Microsoft Azure is extremely good!"

What do you like best?

Microsoft Azure has recently advanced in the implementation of advanced analytics, such as machine learning. Their advances are great and they integrate very well with the tools. It is easy to integrate with other Microsoft products, it does an excellent job of giving orientation to easy methods to use for the collection and analysis of data. It has frequent updates to solve problems, in addition to security administration is feasible and really easy to configure.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it shows slowness in the process, the volume of functions can be of negative impact for beginners. Its design could be more intuitive and better practicality. While there are a lot of support documents, you could design a little better to help you get where you need to go.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is ideal for testing environment that is put into operation in parallel with the productive environment. It is very suitable for the web hosting platform in addition to being a solution to migrate from data centers on the site to virtualized and highly protected solutions. Azure is a program with a pretty good service in general terms, it manages to reduce the security and the workload.

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

In Agro Zaffiro LLP is currently used to providing access to databases. It is of great help for the implementation of applications and services based on a centralized cloud environment. One of the great benefits of any cloud based computer is the fact that you don't need to maintain your own hardware. No need to think about updates. No need to worry about disaster striking at the hardware level.

"not just another microsoft application it's so much more"

What do you like best?

the active directory feature in the cloud, being able to add users to the cloud so they get a microsoft account and a active directory account, everything is connected together.

What do you dislike?

using azure there are loads of features out there but they are costly features, alot of these features would be massive game changers for our company if they were cheaper or free but I guess that business.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

if you want to move everything to the cloud I would, yes some of the extras aren't the cheapest but it's brilliant to change from the local on prem to the new cloud solution

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

cloud solutions has been a big apart of our future growth of the company, we wanted to be able to link everything from our Active directory to our emails so it's act as a SSO, this has been brilliant to manage with azure AD and office 365

"Azure Active Directory - For your Identity and Access Management on the cloud."

What do you like best?

The best thing about Azure Active Directory is the Self service password reset/change/unlock, 2 Factor Authentication, Azure AD for BYOD, These features are most used in our IT environment.

What do you dislike?

The traditional AD used LDAP and has other security and group policies however Azure AD uses REST which is intended for running apps on Software as a Service (SaaS cloud) and to provide Identity Management services.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is big step for large organizations to jump on to the Azure AD train however companies really looking forward for cloud options can start with the hybrid model.

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

Azure AD offers single sign on (SSO) for the users which is a very useful feature while accessing external resources like MS Office and other SAAS applications.We have the Premium P2 version which give a lot of customization and scalability options. We are using the hybrid option and have connected the On-premise AD DS environment with Cloud AAD Connect hence the output gives the best of both of them.

"Azure Active Directory - Efficiently manage Identity And Access Management On The Cloud"

What do you like best?

The ability to perform Self service password reset/change/unlock is a very useful feature.

Multi factor Authentication is the need of today which is available in Azure AD.

It offers enough flexibility by Azure AD for BYODs.

What do you dislike?

The traditional AD used LDAP and has other security and group policies however Azure AD uses REST which is intended for ruuning apps on Software as a Service (SaaS cloud) and to provide Identity Management services.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The product has a lot of advantages however moving to Cloud AD is a huge step. People should perform enough testing in their environment.

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

We are using Premium P2 version which gives a lot of customization and scalability options .

We are using the hybrid option and have connected the On-premise AD DS environment with Cloud AAD Connect hence the output gives the best of both of them.

"Easy Implementation. Best Bang For Your Buck If You Are A Pure Cloud Player."

What do you like best?

1. Conditional Access Policy. Integration with Intune for MDM and MAM. 2. Azure B2B for External Users access to Microsoft and non Microsoft applications 3. Passwordless Authentication roadmap

What do you dislike?

Documentation is all over the place and incomplete. Microsoft Support is not structured well to arrive at fast resolutions. There is a huge gap between what is being promoted in Ignite and what is currently available. Technology Roadmap visibility can be a lot better.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you own the license, implement it right away. It will give you several opportunities for software consolidation and eliminate on-premise identity infrastructure foot print. It offers significant user experience benefits too.

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

Azure AD Technology is rock solid and has several competent features like integration with MDM solutions, MFA solutions, passwordless technologies and defender ATP. It is the best bang for the buck no questions about it. However, it might not meet all your needs especially if you have strong compliance requirements. The best user experience and ease of implementation comes when you use all cloud and all Microsoft products for your Identity and Authentication architecture. Having On-prem AD is still OK.

"The first tool you starting working in Azure"

What do you like best?

Azure AD is powerful identity service that allows management of users for your cloud solutions. You can keep users of Azure and Officce365 in single directory, which makes you free from doin the same work several times. It is easy to control user permissions using RBAC, you can use preconfigured roles for your users or create custom roles for detailed control of all aspects of users access. Azure AD provides native tools for integration with your on-premise active directory, so you don`t even need to create users by yourself, and your users and still use single credentials to access both on-premise and cloud sides of your infrastructure. Also you can extend functionality of your on-premise AD, by adding Multi-Factor authentication and self-service user portal, so users can maintain their passwords without opening the cases with helpdesk

What do you dislike?

Rich functionality assumes complexity of implementation, for example in case of implementing MFA, you will need to have your users authenticated via RADIUS server, which is not widely used solution for on-premise AD, and you will probably need to redesign and rebuild your directory.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Many new users treating Azure AD as replacement of on-premise Active directory, it is wrong, it can extend, but not replace it. Implementation of full functionality will take a lot of time, so don`t expect, that it will go-live in couple of days. You will need a lot of resources and experienced staff to to adopt it

"Great Platform"

What do you like best?

Purplish blue AD offers single sign on (SSO) for the clients which is an exceptionally valuable element while getting to outside assets like MS Office and different SAAS applications.We have the Premium P2 adaptation which give a ton of customization and adaptability choices. It was anything but difficult to begin with Microsoft Azure AD. I just signed into my Microsoft account on the Azure landing page, set up the Azure record, and made an application show.

What do you dislike?

When I endeavored to confirm on the application - which I had set up on the Azure AD side - I achieved a blunder screen with no sign of what the issue was.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Maintain a strategic distance from alliance of your clients without synchronizing them. They will lose access to Azure assets too, in the event that you datacenter will come up short. Sky blue AD is tremendous and gives nitty gritty highlights. Associations searching for cloud alternatives in AD should attempt Azure AD.

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

Our inside IT and improvement groups have been given access through Azure AD so as to deliver and created web applications and host them on Azure. With Single Sign ON and MFA , it gives a great deal of simplicity to the clients while working from remote areas and with various equipment. Reconciliation of cloud administrations to existing Active Directory condition

Azure AD offers single sign on (SSO) for the users which is a very useful feature while accessing external resources like MS Office and other SAAS applications.We have the Premium P2 version which give a lot of customization and scalability options.

The integration of the user data with On premise ADDC is very efficient.

What do you dislike?

Some of the features like Multi-Factor Authentication (Cloud and On-premises (MFA Server)) and Self-service password modification and unlock with on-premises write back are only available to Azure AD premium users.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Azure AD is vast and provides detailed features. Organizations looking for cloud options in AD should try Azure AD.

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

Our internal IT and development teams have been given access through Azure AD in order to produce and developed web apps and host them on Azure.

With Single Sign ON and MFA , it gives a lot of ease to the users while working from remote locations and with different hardware.

"your active directory solution in the cloud"

What do you like best?

why wouldn't you want your active directory domain on the cloud where you can access it from everywhere from the world, you can get access through to it from your office365 account

What do you dislike?

you can't link it up with SQL server that is on prem which is a pain as we have to have 2 different domains to log into a SQL database i'd love to just have the 1 domain

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

microsoft hello for sigining in has been a big part of secuirty and using active directory that has helped us complete that goal, we've been able to secure our whole network using this function

"Broken out of the Box"

What do you like best?

It was easy to get started with Microsoft Azure AD. I just logged into my Microsoft account on the Azure home page, set up the Azure account, and created an application manifest.

What do you dislike?

When I tried to authenticate on the application - which I had set up on the Azure AD side - I reached an error screen with no indication of what the problem was. Research and set up that I did was a complete waste of time.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I was not able to resolve issues that I encountered. One in particular was a complete dead end - absolutely no way to troubleshoot. If you're not satisfied with MS products, I suggest looking for alternative ways of achieving your goals.

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

I wanted to access Office 365 resources from within my application. Our company has a vast amount of data on the platform, which we've found lacking in many areas. AAD promised to empower us to get more out of O365. So far, that's been a broken promise.

"Started to learning of Azure from it"

What do you like best?

Azure AD is a flexible authentication mechanism for Microsoft cloud services mainly Azure and Office 365. Allows synchronization of users from on-premise AD, with mutli-factor authentication and self-service features, which can be enabled separately. Application registration allows authenticating users in company approved applications using Azure AD. Domain services allows using Azure AD as a cloud version of Domain Controller, it does not have full functionality of regular AD, but can be useful in specific cases. RBAC allows control of user access based on pre-built or custom roles

What do you dislike?

Not very straightforward pricing, it is common problem for all Azure resources. Hard for budget planning

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Avoid federation of your users without synchronizing them. They will lose access to Azure resources as well, if you datacenter will fail

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

"User Management "

What do you like best?

I like Azure active directory user management Multi factor authentication. The security options provided have really helped secure our data. I also like the way that single sign on is managed in Azure. I can easily add a new system to single sign on and also easily give users specific access to systems.

What do you dislike?

Dislike the interface. It is very easy on the eyes but there are a lot of different sections. At times i find it hard to find what im looking for.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend Azure for user management over on premise AD. I do think the interface needs to be improved but Microsoft is heading in the right direction.

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

We are continuously trying to make our environment more secure. On a day to day basis users may click links that are malicious. Two factor authentication helps the user by ensuring no one else is logging into their account other than themselves. Single sign on also solves the business problem of users remembering their passwords. We used to receive a lot of emails from users about forgot passwords but now that they have to remember just one password we do not receive nearly as many emails to reset passwords. Considering we are fairly new to using Microsoft Azure active directory, I can see moving forward that we will have more benefits to talk about. The product is most definitely moving in the right direction.

"Main authentication tool for Azure"

What do you like best?

Azure AD provides broad set of great working user management tools, such as Identity Service, On-Premise Active directory integration, Single Sign-On, Self Service credential management for end users and even domain services, which can be used as domain controller for your Azure Virtual Machines. Detailed documentation and responsible support makes your experience with Azure AD very pleasant.

What do you dislike?

Customer facing tools could be designed better, RADUIS only authentcation support for Multi-Factor authentication, rebuilding your existing AD for it can be a problem

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Fast growing identity solution, even if some functions are not useful now, these can be useful in near future. Read all the update information emails, you probably can find something that you need there

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

"Azure Active Directory - Cloud Identity done right."

What do you like best?

I love the fact that I can extend the Azure AD in a B2B fashion to other SaaS products. I give my users just 1 credential and I can re-purpose it to logon to almost 3000+ other SaaS solutions out there. This is truly Single SignOn at it's best.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the amount of marketing Microsoft is putting into this in my country (Netherlands). They are missing out on a huge market potential, while it's pretty obvious they have the best proposition out there.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is truly a great product, that with every add-on you purchase (for instance EMS) adds more functionality and protection for your users.

"Active Directory on Azure"

What do you like best?

One of the biggest advantages have to use Azure AD is the ability to deliver a SSO platform for the entire enterprise.

In our case we implement Azure AD in order to replicate our server AD on-premise in the cloud and offer authenticated access service to our users outside the office and remote branches.

Once implemented in Azure AD we get all of our users agree to the platform and could use both Office 365 business PCs as well as on their mobile devices.

On the other hand, with Azure AD we keep our users connected all the time from online applications Office 365 as well as his own, always using a single authentication method.

What do you dislike?

Regarding the disadvantages almost you can not name many, unless a VM in Azure has an additional cost this is quickly solved by having replicated AD infrastructure everywhere.

Perhaps one of the things that can be a disadvantage is the speed with which you access the VM in Azure, but resolves having a good internet connection.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Of course I recommend the use of Azure AD for those users who need a centralized platform in Windows environments and especially for those using Office 365. It is a robust, secure and easy platform to deploy and maintain.

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

As I mentioned before, we can solve the problems in our company was maintaining a consistent and secure SSO structure. With our server replicated in Azure AD we get all the benefits of a heterogeneous environment and safe for the whole organization.

"Single Sign-On That Comes with Office 365"

What do you like best?

I like that this is built-in to most Office 365 subscriptions. This allows me to set up single sign-on for various other tools while allowing the end-user to keep track of only their Office 365 credentials.

What do you dislike?

The admin interfaces seem to change a lot. I think they're trying to find something that works to make it easy to navigate the enormous number of products/tools. I don't think you can get around this. It would be easier to just stop changing things...

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're already an Office 365 subscriber, just use it.

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

Single sign-on. Users contact me less asking "what's my password?"

"Will be outstanding identity solution in future"

What do you like best?

Azure AD is not very complex but powerfull identity solution for cloud and some on-premises deployment, RBAC is clear, you can create custom roles for your users. Powershell module is good you can do all operation with it

What do you dislike?

Azure AD domain services is that what we want to have for our cloud infrastructure, but it still can`t fully replace domain controller deployed on virtual machine, hope it will be fixed in future

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

"Identity service for cloud services"

What do you like best?

Ability to syncrhonize and federate your Active Directory with Azure AD. Single Sign-On feature. Users do not need to maintatin additional set of credentials. Very good support, all problems are being resolved quickly. Good documentation. Ability to add custom domains, not only onmicrosoft.com.

What do you dislike?

Azure AD domain services are still very limited in functionality, and in some cases not enough to replace additional domain controller in Azure

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Don`t expect it as a replacement of your Active Directory

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

"Good solution for small business"

What do you like best?

I am not a Windows admin by any means. I am however a developer and using Azure AD's single sign on to secure a lot of our internal applications with our AD credentials has been awesome! We don't worry anymore about having to keep track of individual accounts for our tools anymore with Azure AD.

What do you dislike?

Not being the administrator of the AD system itself, I don't have any complaints about it. From a development perspective it works great!

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

We have several applications that we use internally in our company, GitLab, New Relic, etc. Using Azure AD we've been able to tie them all into Azure AD's SSO system so that we can easily manage access to the applications our engineers need.

Integration with many services such Active Directory and Office 365. Possibility of hybrid usage in conjunction with AD.

Convenient management from any device from anywhere.

Security features such as SSO and MFA.

What do you dislike?

MFA available only in paid version.

Azure AD still doesn't have such capabilities like Active Directory has.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely recommend to use.

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

With the help of this service We can give employees and business partners of the company access to different sources of company.

"Microsoft Azure Active Directory "

What do you like best?

Microsoft azure is a cloud based directory and identity management service. it is easy to deploy and gives employers a single sign on option to cloud applications such as Office 365, exchange 2016. Its authentication features privileged account management, role based access control, application usage monitoring, rich auditing and security monitoring and alerting.

What do you dislike?

The disadvantage of Azure is that for applications like office 365, it requires its own Active directory. It does not use the AD on a normal Windows server

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would consider Azure AD for the Office 365 E3 deployment for organizations who want to migrate from their in-house exchange to the cloud.

"Azure Platform Migration"

What do you like best?

I loved the ease of migration that we had when moving an existing user-base from AD 2010 to the azure platform. Being able to migrate and deploy an entire farm of 250+ users and implement proper SaaS solutions that our users needed was essential, and we were able to complete this within a weekend after a month of review.

What do you dislike?

Initial review was heavy for our staff during training, as some of our newer members had not reviewed AD practices since 2003/2007, and had some knowledge gaps from existing and new management methods within the platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure to run a VM trial within your lab to review, it's essential to demo moving your environment before going live.

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

Azure allowed us to provide a much larger scale of practical applications for our existing and future clients without bogging them down into a physical onsite server. We also forced ourselves to further our knowledge within the MS Sphere with additional training which was a significant boon for us.

"The Future of Identity as a Service"

What do you like best?

The vision is hands down the best feature of Azure Active Directory. Imagine a world where you don't need to build another authentication system for your next app (big or small); that is the direction AAD is heading in.

What do you dislike?

While I understand preview features are subject to change, I'd have to say the dislike is the clarity around implementation when undergoing changes. This issue is actively being addressed with more and more code samples being posted to github, but at the rate the offering is evolving it is hard to keep up with the communication and documentation, especially regarding bleeding edge features.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Forget what you know about Active Directory Administration (or don't, because it can still be administered that way) but Azure Active Directory can offer a cloud first federated identity that your internal users can leverage across the network and the web. Also consider looking into the B2C preview (as of 06-15-16) and the graph api - these are all connected and have great synergy beyond just IDaaS.

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

The problem is twofold; 1. SSO integrated into all internal applications, for internal users (this is using Azure B2B and works great). 2. Since the announcement of Azure B2C, we've had high hopes of leveraging that to provide a similar experience to our external customers using external applications (this is in preview, but looks very promising.)

"Powerful tool, difficult onboarding"

What do you like best?

AD makes a great central sign on authority. It is very easy to mange existing users and add additional ones. Switching between domains is also easy on the web portal.

What do you dislike?

Integration with NodeJS is difficult despite official libraries and the documentation is rather confusing and time consuming. It is not easy to plug in to a new application and the documentation can often be very confusing and even contradict itself.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Get yourself a quiet environment, a hot cup of coffee, and a few hours to dig into the documentation.

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

I am developing applications for enterprise clients and need Azure AD as a test and staging environment before production with enterprise clients
