Enterprise Access Manager at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
Nov 27 2016

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... 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... more»

What other advice do I have?

I recommend the product. I recommend that they consider pilot rollouts when they go live, not a big bang, so they can gradually understand, once they implement it, what the real... more»

What is most valuable?

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»

What needs improvement?

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. If you cross that point, you have to start all over. That was my bad experience. I had to try it over and over to understand... more»

What is most valuable?

The solution helps us to define roles and get people to specific tasks. From this point of view, it is an amazing tool.

What needs improvement?

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... more»

What other advice do I have?

I'm new at this, but I know that the tool is working. I'm not sure if the problems are coming from us or from the implementation itself. We need to balance the complexity versus the quantity of users and the way that we manage all the... more»

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

What is most valuable?: It brings centralized management of all the identities for the E-Business Suite; that's the central feature. • How has it helped 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. • What needs 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. • What was my experience with deployment of the solution?: 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...

Jul 17 2017

What is most valuable?

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.

How has it helped my organization?

We have been able, after eight months of coding our own Java classes, to implement a Joiner/Mover/Leaver process.

What needs improvement?

Most areas need improvements, all the way from the GUI to core functionality, logging, traceability, configuration, and bugs causing crashes. I... more»

Which solutions did we use previously?

We used an ETL-engine to push users earlier. It didn't have any "IDM functionality" so we switched to what we though was the best solution... more»

What other advice do I have?

Don't use it! Find something else. Ask me for advice. We are currently switching to another vendor/product.
