Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Access Management

My university being primarily an Oracle shop decided to go with Oracle Access Management to handle single sign-on and session management across multiple online applications. Different applications are accessed via Oracle Access Manager by students, faculty members and staff combined. OAM is useful in role-based provisioning and controls.
  • Oracle Access Management allows superior session management capabilities. It can maintain and terminate session states using access engine and endpoint cookies or security tokens.
  • It allows for automated single sign-on as well as protocol translation.
  • The suite allows for real-time fraud detection and prevention capabilities. This is especially useful where our applications are accessed by tens of thousands of users simultaneously.
  • One of the reasons we decided to move forward with Oracle's Access Manager was that we had already bought into their ecosystems and integration was not going to be an extensive a challenge. However, for a standalone product, the price can be fairly prohibitive.
  • Oracle general release cycles are fairly long. It can be a long wait sometimes for the patches to be released.
  • Being an Enterprise Oracle client our university was able to leverage additional licenses at a highly subsidized rate. Hence we found a great use for the product without incurring too many overhead expenses apart from initial implementation costs.

Oracle Access Manager is a fairly handy tool for network and privacy administrators. Its single sign-on capabilities allow for a better user experience across multiple applications. OAM can be customized by administrators to work with different two-factor authentication service providers like DUO or OneLogin.
