Stable with an easy initial setup and good geo sign-on functionality

Pros and Cons

  • "The scalability of the solution is good. We haven't felt we've been restricted from expanding as necessary and we haven't heard of any issues from our clients."
  • "The mobile access to the solution isn't ideal. They should work to improve its functionality."

What is our primary use case?

We have multiple applications that require logins. If when a user is signing on for the first time, they can go to the Oracle Asset Manager's main page where they will need to provide a user ID and password. Then, the corresponding user ID and password would be there and the user's page will be sent a token. If they need to log into other applications, the registry token will be used and the user won't need to log in at that time. So by doing that, we are providing a secure and simple user experience.

What is most valuable?

The solution has the ability to allow users to geo sign-on. Geo sign-on is when somebody is logging in from a Windows laptop, after logging in the first screen when a user opens the laptop, they're signed in across the board. So, once they have logged into a window and if they are opening another application, they don't need to sign onto it individually.

What needs improvement?

The mobile access to the solution isn't ideal. They should work to improve its functionality.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been working with the solution for more than two years for a very big client. We've also used it earlier for other smaller clients. In total, my experience probably ranges over seven or eight years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of the solution is good. We've never had any issues and neither has any of our clients.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of the solution is good. We haven't felt we've been restricted from expanding as necessary and we haven't heard of any issues from our clients.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support has been very good. We've been satisfied with their level of service and haven't run into any issues when it comes to dealing with them.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used Microsoft's Active Directory.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very straightforward. The major requirement, when it comes to installation, is getting the proper business equipment and requirements in place. It takes a bit of time.

What other advice do I have?

We've used both cloud and on-premises deployment models, but have never handled a hybrid deployment model.

I'd advise others that, before starting the installation, it's very important to have the proper equipment in place, at a high level. The organization should also have a proper access management strategy considered as well before implementing the solution.

I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. Overall, it's a very good solution, but its lacking in the mobile area. If the mobile offering was better, I'd rate it higher.

Integrates well into an Oracle ecosystem, it's easy to use, but the support and setup could be better

Pros and Cons

  • "Once it is set up, it is easy to use and it integrates with most of the products on the market."
  • "The initial implementation can definitely be improved because you have to work on several components to configure it correctly."

What is our primary use case?

We are Integrators. We implement and integrate this product for our clients, as well as provide support to our client who is using this solution.

Mainly, we are using it to provide access to two different systems that the client has. It determines the access levels of people. It tells you who needs how much access and then managing it through that.

What is most valuable?

Once it is set up, it is easy to use and it integrates with most of the products on the market.

What needs improvement?

The initial implementation can definitely be improved because you have to work on several components to configure it correctly. Nowadays, most of the solutions are a few clicks before they are installed and then configured.

Technical support needs improvement, they could be 200% better. The reason that most people are having problems is because of the support they provide.

It's very difficult to engage with them or to get the answers to your queries. The turnaround time is very slow. It needs to be faster.

In the next release, I would like to see the integration with non-Microsoft products as well. 

It takes a lot of time to integrate it with non-Oracle products. 

If you have an Oracle ecosystem then you can integrate it, but if it is Microsoft SQL or any other databases that are being used then it is not interoperable. It works but it takes time.

I would like to see if they can easily integrate with other technologies.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with Oracle Access Manager for a few years.

We are using the latest version.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

For the most part, it's stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The organization that we are supporting has approximately 200 to 300 users.

How are customer service and technical support?

Oracle technical support is never good for OAM.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, we were using the AWS based product and Okta.

How was the initial setup?

The installation is not straightforward. In fact, the implementation of OAM is complex, compared to other products, but once it is implemented it is good.

If there are no problems coming in, then it can be done in a few hours. However, if there are some problems then the troubleshooting is a long haul.

We have a couple of engineers to maintain this solution.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others, especially if they are using Oracle products because it is easily integrable with those products. 

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price is really good and it is flexible because they have CPU licenses. The license is a one-time-only purchase.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The solution is comparable to others, such as IBM.

What other advice do I have?

I rate Oracle Access Manager an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
