Number of followers on IT Central Station
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score. (20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.) Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) * 80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it provides a consistent user interface. That's the primary thing, the consistent user interface.

How has it helped my organization?

Over time, it will improve the way my organization functions. We've had some challenges as far as rolling it out, but that's the goal. We have a consistent set of processes, so we need a consistent toolset to be able to disperse across our... more»

What needs improvement?

One of the things they don't have is, they don't provide support for what are called service accounts, non-human accounts, non-human IDs. That's critical. In addition to that, we have some role mining capabilities that Oracle really hasn't... more»

They need to improve visualization and dashboards, as it is getting tough competition from Tableau in the area. With the release of version 10.4, they did very good.

The greatest benefit is increased efficiency so we can manage the identify lifecycle faster and better and so we can govern the access from a central place and make it easier.

Oracle Identity Manager is not in production yet. We are evaluating the product. There is a very strong motivation to get it out there into production and there is a need for it. Sooner or later, we will be doing it. We need an application to allow role-based access. That is our next phase of implementation. We need to get there. Once our current engagements are... more»

My pain point was while migrating my current user base. There is a certain point during that phase of the install where, if you get past it and make a mistake, there is no possibility of going back to a point before the mistake was done.

It is really hard to implement Oracle Data Manager because we have a lot security that we need to manage. We have a lot of security, so it is a bit difficult to implement, but it is still a good product. In Canada, we have some difficulty in getting training about this.

What do you think of Oracle Identity Manager (Oracle IAM)?

Valuable Features It brings centralized management of all the identities for the E-Business Suite; that's the central feature. • Improvements to My Organization It streamlines the management of users, and it also provides compliance, in terms of the policies around maintaining identities, expiration, and so on. • Room for Improvement It is cumbersome to deploy; there are multiple layers in terms of trying to get it to work; and they're also limited in terms of the number of products it can integrate with. • Deployment Issues As far as deployment being cumbersome, I think it's just the nature of the product. For the version that we have, you need to have your own directory services or ID on top of that. Then you have to integrate it to Active Directory; that's another...

What do you think of Oracle Identity Manager (Oracle IAM)?

Improvements to My Organization We have been able, after eight months of coding our own Java classes, to implement a Joiner/Mover/Leaver process. • Valuable Features I won't lie to you. Since we didn't have an IDM, the idea of an IDM and all of its functionality has been valuable. • Room for Improvement Most areas need improvements, all the way from the GUI to core functionality, logging, traceability, configuration, and bugs causing crashes. I don't know where to start. It is too complex, has too many bugs, and is an immature product, even the best case, beta version.) • Stability Issues One of the 5-6 consoles (Design Console) is a blast from the 1970's. It crashes constantly. The vendor is aware of it, but has stated that this is not a priority for them to fix. •...

How has it helped my organization?

Oracle Identity Manager helps to organize, control, and maintain the user IDs and user access keys for an organization. It also has an Activity Manager, for handling situations such as an employee leaving the company.

What needs improvement?

The look and feel could be improved. I have worked with and looked at different products. The look and feel of those were pretty good or better than this product.

How has it helped my organization?

Our organization has a fairly high turnover rate so having an automated process for provisioning and de-provisioning of accounts saves a lot of time from an administration perspective.

What needs improvement?

We still had to write several internal programs/scripts to complete the user-provisioning process. Okta does not have the ability to provision mailbox accounts for on-premise Exchange or in a hybrid O365 environment. The Group Push function... more»
