Amazon Cognito

Amazon Cognito is great for small, internal tools and for integrating with Amazon's serverless products. I would review its features very carefully if I were considering it for a larger, public-facing application because I believe that migrating off of Cognito would be problematic. Cognito is great for internal tools; for example, it has allowed our data scientists to build annotation tools with managed user pools without requiring engineering support.

Oracle Identity Governance

Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) is great if you have a huge organisation and a lot of users to support. It integrates particularly well if you want SSO and already use Oracle's business suit applications such as Oracle Business Intelligence. One of the most important things to keep in mind while deciding to go ahead with OIM is whether or not you have enough time, money and resources for its implementation because it can be very challenging and expensive.

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.

Oracle Identity Governance

  • It is NOT meant for a small or medium size business because it has a huge implementation cost to it.
  • Terrible UI which is extremely confusing.
  • The documentation provided by Oracle is as good as useless because it is written in an extremely complex manner. More often than not, you'll end up hiring a consultant or a dedicated person to take care of product and maintenance.

Oracle Identity Governance

Oracle Identity Governance 7.3
Based on 1 answer
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.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Cognito

It is easier to build multi-factor single sign-on with Okta. Okta has better documentation and provides a better developer experience. It lacks Cognito's seamless integration with other AWS products, however, integration with other Amazon products (like Lambda for customizing sign-in workflows, or SageMaker for Ground Truth labeling tools) is very powerful.

Oracle Identity Governance

Of all the options mentioned here, we did consider VMware Identity Manager and Centrify Identity Service the most since we had just used these two for some of our implementation but we landed on OIM purely because the client had a lot of Oracle Business apps to integrate with and had a good experience with Oracle's team. Personally speaking, VMware Identity Manager is leaps and bound ahead in terms of documentation, interface and features. Also, it is ideal for smaller business as well as a big one.

Return on Investment

Amazon Cognito

  • Amazon Cognito has had a positive impact on our business by allowing us to develop services that require user sign-up and sign-in more rapidly. Not only do we not need to build or maintain these features, but Cognito's implementation is also better than what we would be justified in building ourselves.
  • Amazon Cognito makes user management easy. This reduces the time we have to spend supporting users. Non-technical product managers can even use the AWS Console to manage users without requiring support from developers.
  • Amazon Cognito is likely more secure than what would be built in-house; a portion of our attack surface is now managed by Amazon.

  • It has sped up onboarding processes by at least 3x.
  • Reduced workload.
  • Auto-provisioning.
