Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Identity and Access Management Suite

We used OIM for zero-day provisioning, same day de-provisioning, with various connectors like Active Directory, Exchange, Sametime, etc. We used OIA for analytics of access. OIA helped us perform role certification.
  • OIM was working for us for several years, but we had a lot of custom code we had to write to use it effectively.
  • OIA was able to help us perform role and access reviews periodically, in a scheduled fashion.
  • The product had an OK user interface.
  • 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.
  • I'm not sure we've seen actual ROI by implementing this product. We had many efforts to look at alternatives and to evaluate newer versions (OIG). In the end, we decided to replace it with Sailpoint.
  • Sailpoint
We have decided to replace this Oracle product with Sailpoint. We liked Sailpoint's access request system better, and it was much more lightweight (eg. did not take days to install).
It's good if you have a small number of entitlements to catalogue/review, or systems to integrate with. It was not a good fit for our enterprise needs because it was missing connectors or required too much customization which we'd rather do ourselves using custom code.
