Product Reviews
Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 21reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by It's very complicated to set up. The product does exactly what we'd expect it to do, but it took us a long time to get there. Valuable Features:We use Identity Management primarily within our installation of E-Business Suite. Identity Management gives us the ability for people who use Oracle Application Manager to login using their standard network username and password.Improvements to My Organization:We are a pharmaceutical company. We use E-Business Suite and Identity Manager to bind into E-Business Suite. That gives us the ability to carry out an e-signature so that we can track and trace anything going on, or what's going on in the database base, back to what user signed for a particular step in a manufacturing sequence, and when they signed for it. So with Single-Sign On, we can basically audit each step of a particular piece of manufacturing, who carried out the step, and when they carried out the step.Room for Improvement:Identity Manager is very complicated to set up. I guess where that comes from I believe, is we use it to buy into LDAP, and Microsoft and Oracle don't get on a corporate level, so it's going to be very difficult for them to get onto a software level, making it very, very complicated to set up. Now, we did eventually get there and the product does exactly what we'd expect it to do, but it took us a long time to get there.Deployment Issues:Deploying it was difficult for the initial setup because it was complex. After that, we've had no issues with deployment.Stability Issues:It's very stable. We haven't had any issues with instability that were big.Scalability Issues:It's scaled just fine for our needs.Initial Setup:We use Oracle Linux and WebLogic, and Identity Management, giving us a High Availability level that we're using with the Oracle Access Manager solution. Those 3 products in the stack -- the OS, the middleware, and then the Identity Management software to go into the middleware -- was such a complicated process to set up. I think Oracle should have provided some sort of flow chart or guide to get these products installed faster and configured in such a way that you are comfortable.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by It's a complex product and it runs a bit slower than its competitors but it does automate user creation. Valuable Features:Automated User Creation and provisioning of connected resources in the case of Identity Manager, Access control to protected web resources with regards to Oracle Access Manager.Improvements to My Organization:OIM eliminates the need for manual creation of users and assigning of various resources. It reduces the time needed for onboarding new users.Room for Improvement:The management of workflows could use some improvement as well as the overall performance of the product. Because this is such a complex product, we find that it runs a bit slower than its competitors.Use of Solution:I have used the Oracle products for 7 years. I have experience with both the 10g and 11g versions of the product.Deployment Issues:Yes we encountered a lot of issues with deployment due to the fact that we are a highly customized environment.Stability Issues:No, this has not been much of an issue for us.Scalability Issues:No this has not been much of an issue for us. The product scales quite well with the size of our user base.Customer Service:The customer service for the product is satisfactory.Technical Support:The level of tech support could use some improvement.Previous Solutions:We did use a different product before going to Oracle and we made the switch due to lack of support for the other product.Initial Setup:The setup was complex due to too many customized provisioning workflows within our organization.Implementation Team:We implemented the product through a partner of the vendor. Their expertise was what we expected.Other Solutions Considered:Yes, we evaluated both Sun Identity Manager, and CA Identity Manger.Other Advice:I would say this is a good product but some time would have to be spent in planning and learning.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by It has helped in automating and reducing manual processes but all the functionalities are overly complicated. Valuable Features:* Provisioning* Reconciliation engine* Adapter factoryImprovements to My Organization:It has helped in automating and reducing manual processes.Room for Improvement:It needs to be more flexible and should have friendlier UI with more integrated features within a single UI.Use of Solution:I have used this product for over three years.Deployment Issues:We faced many issues while migrating onto this solution.Stability Issues:No issues encountered.Scalability Issues:No issues encountered.Customer Service:6/10.Technical Support:3/10.Previous Solutions:No previous solution used.Initial Setup:It was pretty complicated. Everything should be UI and the 'All Design' console features should be available within the administration console.Implementation Team:We implemented it through an in-house team.ROI:It is pretty good.Other Solutions Considered:We had a few options like BMC, Novell, and Tivoli IDM's.Other Advice:Hire experts to do the implementation as all the functionalities are overly complicated.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Review about Oracle Identity Manager Valuable Features:Single Sign on without having to users to type in username and password.Also we use CAC card logins.Improvements to My Organization:Increased security and allow the use of embeded chip card loginsUse of Solution:2 yrsDeployment Issues:There were many challenges our admin folks had to overcome, but I think the biggest was integrating with our legacy login information and existing user accounts.Stability Issues:Not after it was implementedScalability Issues:Peak times were an issue initially but was improved after a few months from implemnetation.Technical Support:Oracle support is sometimes spotty but generally we get issues resolved.Previous Solutions:Username password, but our security requires authentication without passwords.Initial Setup:I believe it was complex initially but admins got it working.Implementation Team:It was inhouse developeed and implemented.ROI:Not sureCost and Licensing Advice:Not sure I am not the purchasing deptOther Solutions Considered:I think they did eval, but not sure whoOther Advice:Good integration with all Oracle products.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Review about Oracle Identity Manager Valuable Features:reconciliationidentity self serviceconnectors - huge number of available out-of-the-box connectors , covering a large number of real-world use cases, requiring little to no customization effort.Improvements to My Organization:streamline access request processmanage accounts without manual interventionRoom for Improvement:the default UI is modifiable using the web composer interface, but it is tied to the ADF environment it lives in. Also, the ecommerce-like request process may need some more polish because often customers require features like direct access right requests.Use of Solution:6 yearsDisclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:partnership September 30, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by The GUI is old. We need to reboot the product often. Valuable Features:Because OIM has a Java API, you can develop scripts and automate tasks. Integration with other products written in Java is easy, more or less.Improvements to My Organization:The user just has to search the product+role in OIM and request it, with an approval workflow. The account is created automatically.Room for Improvement:The GUI is very old and could be more user friendly; not all administrative operations can be done with the web interface. You need a Java client for fine tuning. Search operations are very slow, and you often need to use a wildcard. Users expect much-easier, Google search-type operations.Stability can also be improved.Use of Solution:I have used it for two years.Stability Issues:* We see a lot of Java exceptions in logs* The task scheduler often doesn’t work.* It loses its connection with BBDD clusters.* We need to reboot the product very often.* Data sources stop working after a few days of intensive useScalability Issues:I have not encountered any scalability issues.Technical Support:Technical support is 9/10.Previous Solutions:I did not previously use a different solution.Initial Setup:Initial setup was complex; a lot of customizations are needed for the product to work.Other Solutions Considered:Before choosing this product, I did not evaluate other options.Other Advice:Try to implement newer versions (OIM 12c, for example), or change to other vendors (IBM, CA).Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Provides us with better control of our identity data and entitlements in target systems. The process of integrating with target systems can be simplified. Valuable Features:Reconciliation and provisioning engine, but we also use other features like requests, approvals, and reporting.Improvements to My Organization:We now have better control of our identity data and entitlements in target systems. Automation of provisioning, updating and deprovisioning of accounts in target systems.Room for Improvement:The process of integrating with target systems can be simplified. Setting up a connector is a cumbersome process involving several interfaces, configuration objects, etc.Use of Solution:It's been in production for three years.Deployment Issues:There were no issues with the deployment.Stability Issues:Minor issues with stability and performance, but after tuning properly most of these were solved.Scalability Issues:It's been able to scale for our needs.Technical Support:Depends on the support agent. It can vary from good to very poor. In general, it takes a lot of time before support requests are routed to higher instances like development teams.Initial Setup:Initial setup has got better then previous versions, but still has place for improvement. The setup involves a lot of sub-components with many dependencies etc. The documentation is not entirely clear with regards to dependencies.Implementation Team:I work for a consulting company that has implemented Oracle Identity Manager at clients. It might be that my views are biased, but I would certainly recomend to have technical expertise before starting an implementation project.Cost and Licensing Advice:I would recommend purchasing the licenses before the end of Oracles fiscal year. You tend to get the best discounts then.Other Solutions Considered:We are currently involved in the process of evaluating other vendors.Other Advice:Gartner and Forrester offer reports comparing and ranking different vendors. At the initiation of our implementation project, Oracle was ranked as a leader. The picture has changed since then. In my personal opinion, the choice of technical solution should always be subordinate to companys needs, issues and use-cases. When these are defined, the company should compare several different solutions to each other and focus on ease of learning and use of product.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
