Leading Analyst Firm Positions Oracle Identity Manager in Leaders Quadrant for User Provisioning
August 2008 by Marc Jacob
Oracle Identity Manager, part of the Oracle Identity and Access Management Suite, is positioned in the Leaders Quadrant in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for User Provisioning report.1
A key component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Identity Manager is a user provisioning and administration solution that enables organizations to automate the process of adding, updating and deleting user accounts from applications and directories; and helps improve regulatory compliance by providing granular reports that attest to who has access to specific data, resources and information.
Gartner defines user-provisioning solutions as the main engine in support of identity administration activities. Gartner evaluated each vendor based in part on product capability, market performance, customer experience and overall vision.
