    Amazon Cognito

    Well Suited
    1. B2C mobile and web apps with a high number of users.
    2. Cheaper and cost-effective.
    3. If the other pieces of the infra are already using AWS services like Lambda, S3, Pinpoint, etc.
    Not Suited For:
    1. Advanced use-cases (Biometrics based authentication) Email, and other MFA channels.
    2. For any use-cases needing SCIM.
    3. Customized flows of SSO, and MFA will need a layer on Lambda and other AWS services.

    Oracle Identity Governance

    Well suited for:1. Large and medium organisations who have the capacity to invest in IAM roadmap for long term. 2. Organisations with and existing oracle and partner applications ecosystem. 3. Scenario where the user base is on the higher side and organisations looking to scale up in near future. 4. Organisation with complex workflow need in identity management process. Not well suited for 1. Small organisations or even medium ones which have a lesser number of applications 2. Scenarios where custom connectors need to be developed but at the same time turnaround should be quick. 3. Scenarios when features you are looking for are missing, getting them added could take a lot of effort. 4. UI is not very user-friendly and needs to be customised. 5. Takes time to stablise post going live

    Pros

    Amazon Cognito

    • Strong integration with React.js and client-side applications
    • Easy to bridge Cognito identities with the rest of the AWS ecosystem
    • Easy to store user profile data directly in Cognito rather than having to build additional services/endpoints
    • Easy integration with AWS Lambda to extend and add sophistication to the service

    Oracle Identity Governance

    • It has a very well-defined and scalable framework (LDAP directory).
    • It scales particularly well, going from a basic platform to a complex one using customisation and extensions.
    • It integrates well with other components like SSO and Access Manager to provide comprehensive a one stop identity management solution.

    Cons

    Amazon Cognito

    • Amazon Cognito has a bit of a learning curve. You need to learn its concepts and terminology. The documentation does not describe some topics comprehensively.
    • Some Console screens would benefit from improved search and filtering options.
    • When another AWS product (e.g., SageMaker) configures Cognito on your behalf, it is not clear what you're getting. For example, the expiration of a temporary password was configured but never communicated.

    All the features AWS Cognito offers gives the user the options they need without making it too complicated. Your customers will be happy. On the administration site usability is also great. After a small learning curve, you can setup Cognito for your usage

    Overall good product and somewhat reliable when used in a specific manner. However, there are cons like unending bugs and no well-defined upgrade path. The product could have been more flexible and lite in terms of organisational infra needs. OIM is a robust product but other vendors are almost on-par now.

    AWS Support overall is poor. Your main resources are trainings and the docs, and the docs can be very confusing. Using Cognito well involves having a developer learn it deeply and help support your team in understanding it. That said, Cognito's competitors also have dismal support and even worse documentation, so while this isn't a strength for Cognito it may still be the frontrunner here.

    Return on Investment

    Amazon Cognito

    • ROI is great for Amazon Cognito Overall.
    • It is included in the AWS Free Tier so you can use it for a good amount without paying, so the software can be tested beforehand.
    • The paid pricing is also affordable, so a positive impact on ROI.

    Oracle Identity Governance

    • It has a great impact from moving us from paper based to full EHR Compliance
    • It's easy to check and see how users get and lose access to the systems that are administered through OIM
    • It's also helping in tying down Policies and procedures within the Orgainization
