New features include:
Google-like keyword: Relevance-based search and predictive analytics eliminate the guesswork for business users, allowing them to very quickly pinpoint the right access privileges in the IdentityIQ access catalog helping guide them to the right roles or entitlements to request.
Affinity search: Building on IdentityIQ’s ecommerce shopping functionality that mimics an online retail experience, business users can now "shop" for access privileges based on what other colleagues or groups of colleagues have, in a policy-controlled and risk-aware environment. This removes a significant administrative burden on IT while still ensuring that access privileges are in line with corporate policy.
Activity-centric dashboard: IdentityIQ 6.0's dashboard transforms how business users manage access with one-click entry into access request, password management and compliance activities and with new “visual alerts” which highlight actions that need to be taken, including approvals, policy alerts and certification notifications.
Business users can easily personalize their IdentityIQ dashboard to enhance their user experience.
Advanced business intelligence capabilities: A new report designer with charting and graphing capabilities delivers business users a customized reporting experience based on ready-to-use report templates. Additionally, IdentityIQ 6.0 expands support for “direct connect” options to the IdentityIQ data store, which allows organizations to leverage external business intelligence tools on top of IdentityIQ's data model.
Expanded SaaS application support: To help IT support the growing business demand for SaaS offerings, IdentityIQ 6.0 extends existing compliance and provisioning processes to the cloud with the addition of new SaaS connectors, including: Amazon AWS, Box.net, Exchange Online, GotoMeeting, Office 365, NetSuite, ServiceNow, SharePoint Online, and WebEx.
