  • Very well defined connector framework, which enables us to connect with industry-leading applications, either as a trusted source or targets.
  • Very much customizable and scalable as per organisational needs.
  • Always a preferable choice when you have an Oracle applications ecosystem in place as it's easy to configure and maintain when coupled.
  • Very high cost compared to its competitors in the market, not suitable for medium or small businesses
  • There are a lot of known bugs and a constant need to patch [them]
  • Heavy on hardware, at least 8GB of RAM is needed!! There are much lighter products available with comparable features.
  • Need skilled professionals to configure and maintain, which leads to additional cost.
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

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.
