  • MidPoint saves money. Identity provisioning systems had a reputation of being extremely expensive to deploy and maintain. But midPoint has changed that completely. MidPoint is design to be cost-efficient. The open-source character means that the licensing cost is zero. The support cost is reduced by a network of excellent technology partners. But the most significant saving is in the deployment cost. MidPoint is built on more than a decade on IDM exprienceexperience. It is built by people who deployed IDM solutions. We know very well what an IDM engineers needs "in the field". Therefore we have implemented that directly in midPoint code. It can be expected that 80% of the things that your IDM solution needs can be implemented in midPoint by simply flipping a configuration switch. MidPoint can make a huge effect with a very little implementation effort.
  • MidPoint goes beyond user management. MidPoint is real identity management. Of course it can manage users and accounts. But it can also manage groups, organizational units, services, devices or any other concept that can be technically reached by the connector. MidPoint can bind all these concepts to the identities therefore it can easily manage user membership in organizational units or groups. It can also manage organizational subscription to services or device ownership. And all of that is done by simply reusing the principles of identity management and applying them to much broader category of objects.
  • MidPoint is open source. Yes, this means that the licensing cost is zero. But there is much more in this. It also means that midPoint code can be modified. Other vendors will void your support agreement if you modify product code. But we in fact encourage partners to modify midPoint code. This is the best way to make really extreme customizations. But it is also a way how to bring new ideas into midPoint. How to allow partners to participate on product development. How to maintain a very creative community. This allows midPoint to be great and to remain great.

midPoint is essentially a Java application. Its internal structure is "wired" together using a Spring framework. It is quite strictly divided into internal components separated by interfaces, which provides fair assurance of reusability and maintainability. The structure itself is lightweight. Heavyweight components such as Java Enterprise Java Beans (EJB) or Enterprise Sevice Service Bus (ESB) are not used (although integration with them is possible).
