Amazon Cognito

If you're already using AWS, there's no reason why you should implement your own password authentication or OAuth flows when you can use Cognito instead. It solves that work for you astoundingly well. You might be tempted by a tool like Okta for OAuth flows, but unless you already have a hard dependency on it then you should go with Cognito instead. It's much lighter weight, and it's much more pleasant to extend it with lambdas.
If you don't have any AWS in your stack, or it's very very important to you to stay platform-independent for your login flows, then those are reasons to avoid Cognito.

Oracle Identity Management

Oracle Identity Management is a great product, especially when working with multiple directories. It is best suited in a company that has multiple business divisions catering to different objectives. And not all companies would be able to utilize all of its features, especially if the users base is too small or the business model is restricted into one area.

Cons

Amazon Cognito

  • As such I do not find any major things as cons. However they can improve the documentation.
  • Sometimes additional customisation increases complexity. Most of those advanced features are not used frequently.

Oracle Identity Management

  • The entitlements catalog was not robust enough for our needs. We ended up keeping an internal system to catalog our entitlements. This meant more integration code was necessary than we'd like.
  • We evaluated the access request functionality, but again, it was not flexible enough and had a bunch of strange quirks (unnecessary button presses, etc).
  • OIA was pretty slow and users would complain about it repeatedly. We tried working with Oracle to improve the performance, but didn't get anywhere after months of troubleshooting.

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

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.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Cognito

When compared to Okta, I would say Cognito is still not up to pace with Okta. However, I guess they are constantly updating their features and will soon come with the new features. I would say Cogntio provides a better interface than Azure.

Oracle Identity Management

I believe we had a quite fair RFP listing all our complex integration and being key on utilizing existing investments, the Oracle product met our requirements and the local partner presented that very well. With such combined synergy, the offering was appealing to be the winning bid and therefore Oracle Identity Management was selected.

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.

Oracle Identity Management

  • Oracle Identity Management is a great product, catering to the business needs.
  • Not all features of the OIM suite are applicable to all companies, thus having an impact on ROI.
  • Overall it is a great product that handles a large company's identity management requirements like a pro.
