Hello everyone, I have a SW installation of IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator for which I need to purchase a license plus support. I was advised to go for IBM Security Directory Suite Enterprise Edition as a licensing option. I use Directory to integrate Netcool and ServiceNow. Anybody has any experience with this point? Any comment will be appreciated! (Also wondering why the license should include a "Security" component)....thank you!

Since version 7.2 TDI (Tivoli Directory Integrator) is called SDI (Security Directory Integrator) so it is just name change (and some enhancements, after all it is change from 7.1.x to 7.2).
TDI is not supported anymore (since 2019) so it was good advice to choose SDI:

Thanks for sharing that, Jacek.

@cesar I have requested this information from the Offering Manager for TDI - or rather, SDI as it is branded now. As far as I remember, you need to buy something that includes SDI, and then you have a license. This includes a number of products, like Cognos, Connections, Security Verify Governance, Identity Manager, SCD (Control Desk), ... The Security Directory Suite also includes SDI and features like the DSML Service and FDS (Federated Directory Server), which is a point-and-click multi-source data sync solution with a browser-based UI.

I will revert when I learn more.

@Jacek and @Eddie thank you for advice here! SDI seems to be rather expensive.Hence, I was wondering if there was a more affordable option. I will wait for further advice. Thank you so much!!
