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.

If an organization is looking for a good comprehensive identity management/governance suite that is easy to implement, CA identity manager may be a good/robust product. It is best to understand specific use case for your organization and try out the product before a final purchase decision as is the case with all sw products.

  • It has complete identity management and governance capabilities equipped with a simple, intuitive user experience and helps simplify processes such as user access requests and access certifications. This in turn helps in improved productivity and user satisfaction.

Cons

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.

  • Bringing on new users and removing existing user when new employee/contractors join or leave an organization can be improved by linking directly to HR module.
  • The slightly complicated GUI makes drill down difficult for a new user.

Alternatives Considered

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.

The final contenders were CA and Oracle - Oracle was tedious to implement and maintain while on the other hand CA was easy to implement and maintain and came at a much lower price.

Return on Investment

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.

  • For us, it was a fairly easy implementation over 60 day period that provided ROI fairly quickly
