"What I like most about Oracle Identity Governance is that it is a very flexible tool. It allows you to do any customization on Java as it is built on Java and you can write any customization code using Java. I also like that Oracle Identity Governance is pretty much stable. In my company, there are a lot of users, so my company prefers this solution.""Password management is a valuable feature.""Understanding what a customer is using, what they are looking for, and allowing permissions is a challenge. We use the information we get in order to understand the behavior of the customer beyond the security and to understand what they have been doing in the last month. It's a nice way to understand what is attracting the customer and what they are clicking. That could be implemented by using this kind of application.""The most important feature is the connectors. Without the connectors, it can do nothing.""The most valuable feature is the user manager certification that approves or removes user access.""The one thing that stands out was is the automatic sign-out when an employee goes on vacation. Identity Governance can monitor when an employee goes on vacation and returns. We use this feature to automatically disable all the employee's accounts when they go on vacation, and they're automatically enabled when they come back.""The support service of Oracle is good. We use it a lot and their response is quick.""The most valuable features in Oracle Identity Governance are identity and access management."

"The pricing needs improvement.""Scaling this solution can be difficult."

More MicroStrategy Usher Cons →

"The solution needs to improve its web interface in the next release.""It's a complex solution, so it will take time in terms of deployment.""The solution should be easy to implement with components combined in one file and built-in features to integrate target applications without having to install additional connectors.""Pricing for Oracle Identity Governance could be improved. The setup process for the tool could also be faster.""The user interface experience needs to be improved.""Identity Governance is a difficult tool to work with. You have to input many models to understand what is happening with the logins. The user interface is not so good. And a lot of the features we use aren't available out of the box.""One of the areas that need some improvement with Oracle specifically is the ease of implementation.""The platform could be enhanced with additional features."

    Oracle Identity Governance (OIG) is a very versatile and robust enterprise identity management solution that offers functional and business performance competence by supplying centralized administration and total automation of identity and client provisioning events throughout the organization and user applications. Oracle Identity Governance monitors the complete identity and role process to satisfy rapidly changing business and complex compliance regulations and quickly delivers critical reporting and compliance capabilities.

    Oracle Identity Governance is designed to easily identify which users have approved access to specific applications and other resources. It does this by using processes such as segregation of duties (SOD), role-based access control (RBAC), certifications, and access requests.

    Oracle Identity Governance Features

    • Self-service wizard: Oracle Identity Governance has worked to make the onboarding of applications significantly easier. It no longer takes numerous steps and technical expertise. The self-service wizard makes the process simple and user-friendly.

    • Self-service APIs: This gives Oracle Identity Governance users an improved user experience (UX). The REST APIs for user self-service can be used for both web and mobile users. Oracle Identity Governance users are easily able to view user accounts and roles, in addition to being able to complete self-service tasks such as forgotten passwords, registration, and more.

    • Certification: Oracle Identity Governance offers many certification options, such as a custom access reviewer, group reviewing support, and designate certifications by completed percentage. OIG can also focus on specific role access and anomalies for access beyond a user-defined role (UDF).

    • Integration connectors: Oracle Identity Governance has many integration connector options for both cloud and on-premises deployments. Popular categories include Oracle Identity Cloud Service (IDCS) and traditional and hybrid systems such as Fusion Applications (FA). OIG also integrates well with connectors to Database Application Tables (DBAT), scripting tools, and web services. OIG offers several integration connectors with many of today’s top SaaS applications, such as Dropbox, Google Apps, Office 365, ServiceNow, and WebEx.

    Reviews from Real Users

    The one thing that stands out was the automatic sign-out when an employee goes on vacation. Identity Governance can monitor when an employee goes on vacation and returns. We use this feature to automatically disable all the employee's accounts when they go on vacation, and they're automatically enabled when they come back. We can also automatically delete the employee's accounts when they're dismissed. Oracle has a model that gives you precise reports. It's called Crystal, and it's similar to JasperReports, so we can derive reports from this database. “ - Fabio L., Partner at a tech services company.

    “We are using Oracle Identity Manager for the management of the identity cycle. We have a human resources system as a source, and we have some custom-made applications as a destination of the changes in the identities. - A PeerSpot user who is a Project Manager at a government “
