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 Manager

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

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

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

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.

OIM is a leader in the identity management space and appropriate for specific organisations and use cases. Where its competitors have an edge over cost and overall look and feel of product, OIM offers Oracle's vast experience of enterprise security products and compatibility with infrastructure applications. It melds well with other Oracle security products like OAM and OAAM. When cost is not a problem and you are ready to invest your resources for long-term OIM is preferable. It has its pros and cons as explained earlier, and should be selected on basis of specific needs.

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • Fewer support tickets from users since they can use self-service to take care of most of the problem.
  • The implementation cost was a big issue especially since Oracle provides no out of box strategy and it is quite difficult to get a hold of expert consultants who can help you navigate it.
  • Since OIM provides a comprehensive suit for all your identity and access manager needs, it saves from having to buy multiple softwares to do the same job.
