One Identity remains firmly on track to be the 1st major Elliot partnership disposal. The acquisition of Balabit is considered a key marker to investors of the product's potential for further development and growth. Further to this the UK management team are marked for redundancy in the near future as a drive to focus the group structure, post Brexit, within Ireland.

Is OI any better? clueless management and ridiculous product management who are retro fitting silly integration with other products hoping to cross sell, lack of creativity and professionalism.
Platform management itself performs to a good level, mainly due to a comparative lack of competition especially in regards to Migration Manager. Migration manager being the Quest blue riband offering and having a mature customer base from Fortune 500 composites performs respectably, however the other platform tools are decent performers also. As with all BU's a sale is likely as soon as the 'right offer' develops. The MPM products are considered to be lacking in direction currently and on many offerings the UI is looking tired, non uniform and dated but with product directors in place that were system engineers 5 years ago that's hardly surprising. Take a duck out of water and what you get is a lot of flapping. Sean McEvoy's legacy of nepotism continues to hold the company back and business leaders are only now starting to smell the coffee. If there is one positive from the dismal recent financial performance it's that surely these woeful middle and lower level directors are living on borrowed time.
What about the ‘Platform Management’ side of things - how’s it fairing?
Kace is going, DP is dead in water. No new customers - and only a fool would invest in either now. Renewals are sinking as companies will not stay with sinking ship.
One Identity is strong performer but it's future is Ireland not UK
More layoff is the future for Quest folks.
Isn't the global leader for One Identity based out of the UK. I hear that bits of DP and all of KACE are on their way out the door... is there anything left of those products to sell??
