Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On (ESSO) Suite Plus provides users simplified access to systems and applications while increasing security, improving compliance, and providing operational efficiencies. ESSO handles the logon and logoff of applications for users, which allows them to focus on their task at hand without the need to remember their passwords. The solution can be extended to leverage existing strong authentication technologies to secure desktop logon as well as extend that authentication to the application layer. Through ESSO's enforcement of strong application password policies and auditing, the solution not only increases security, it also provides an audit trail that shows application usage by each user to strengthen regulatory compliance. ESSO integrates with Oracle Access Manager (OAM), the industry leading web access management (WAM) solution, to provide a seamless single sign-on session for users for all types of application they access. Through integrations with Identity Management systems such as Oracle Identity Manager (OIM), ESSO secures the final link of credential provisioning.

Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Suite Plus - license - Named User Plus is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the most important features is single-sign-on. Valuable Features:The most important features that has impacted on our environment recently are the single-sign-on solution, role based provisioning, and the automated provisioning of accounts to target Systems. This is because we operate in a large environment with huge user turnover. Lots of applications are manually provisioning and de-provisioning can be quite daunting when done manually.Improvements to My Organization:One of the most visible improvements would be the fast turn around for getting users access to the system on the day they start work and getting users out of the environment on the last day of work.Room for Improvement:The development and the administration side could be a lot more intuitive and easier to use than it currently is, in terms of functionality and what it tries to achieve as a single-sign-on entity for an enterprise environment. However, on the development and administration side, the learning curve is steep and quite challenging to master.Use of Solution:We implemented this solution about three years ago in our environment. I personally have used the product for about 14 months, first as a user, then as an account manager, and and now as an OIM administrator and developer.Stability Issues:We don’t really have any issues with the platforms stability as it is up and running with minimal downtime that is caused by OIM itself. I would rate the platform as very stable.Scalability Issues:At the moment, we have not had any issues with the product’s scalability.Technical Support:The technical support from the product owners could be a lot better. Their default mechanism seems to be referring you to documentation which most times does not solve your issues immediately. I believe that when you reach out to technical support for help, you want someone who can help address your needs immediately, and not telling you how to investigate the issues yourself.Previous Solutions:This is the first implementation of a single-sign-on solution.Initial Setup:I was not here for the initial setup, but from what I have seen so far, it seemed pretty complex.Other Advice:Document, Document, and Document. The product is very vast and complex and it can get pretty large in a short amount time. It pays to document every thing you do. Other than that, I think it’s a great product and it has a lot of potential.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It provides a centralized view of people requesting access to provisioning. Valuable Features:The most valuable features are the comprehensiveness; the whole identity lifecycle management; the centralized view of people requesting access to provisioning, to SLD, and to access review; basically, the whole suite.The features are there. Oracle has always had a good vision about where the product is going.Improvements to My Organization: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.Room for Improvement:I would like them to focus on profile-based provisioning, make what we call the birthright access management. We need to have an easier way for people to find out the birthright rules and based on the birthright roles, the people get access they need to get what they want done.But they have to work out the product stability issues and make it easier to upgrade, easier to support, and easier to troubleshoot; those kinds of things.Stability Issues:Sometimes, it does not meet our expectations in terms of stability. I would give it a 3.5/5 for stability.Scalability Issues:Given that it's an OEM product, the scalability is not really a critical factor for us. People can wait for minutes, hours, even days to get access granted. For OIM, it's not really a high criteria.Technical Support:Technical support is pretty good. The only comment is that it depends on which company you come from. Some companies have great relationships with Oracle's product management, so they can get access to the best resources faster than others. We happen to be one of the customers that have a close relationship with Oracle, so no complaints.Previous Solutions:We did not really have a previous solution. OIM has been here for years. Many, many years ago, we had a homegrown solution, but it’s no longer there. For the several past years, I know it's just been OIM.Initial Setup:Initial setup is not a part of my job function.Other Solutions Considered:I just joined, so there's no initiative to reevaluate that part.Other Advice:I would certainly short list OIM on a list of candidates along with some others in the market. With Gartner publishing every year, you have a good review for all the products on the market. For me, Oracle is at least top 5.The features are there. Oracle has always had a good vision about where the product is going.A vendor must have a quality product with easy-to-use features. Right now, user experience is a big thing in the market. Many vendors offer similar solutions. Ease-of-use and the quality of that is the main factor for us.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's very complicated to set up. The product does exactly what we'd expect it to do, but it took us a long time to get there. Valuable Features:We use Identity Management primarily within our installation of E-Business Suite. Identity Management gives us the ability for people who use Oracle Application Manager to login using their standard network username and password.Improvements to My Organization:We are a pharmaceutical company. We use E-Business Suite and Identity Manager to bind into E-Business Suite. That gives us the ability to carry out an e-signature so that we can track and trace anything going on, or what's going on in the database base, back to what user signed for a particular step in a manufacturing sequence, and when they signed for it. So with Single-Sign On, we can basically audit each step of a particular piece of manufacturing, who carried out the step, and when they carried out the step.Room for Improvement:Identity Manager is very complicated to set up. I guess where that comes from I believe, is we use it to buy into LDAP, and Microsoft and Oracle don't get on a corporate level, so it's going to be very difficult for them to get onto a software level, making it very, very complicated to set up. Now, we did eventually get there and the product does exactly what we'd expect it to do, but it took us a long time to get there.Deployment Issues:Deploying it was difficult for the initial setup because it was complex. After that, we've had no issues with deployment.Stability Issues:It's very stable. We haven't had any issues with instability that were big.Scalability Issues:It's scaled just fine for our needs.Initial Setup:We use Oracle Linux and WebLogic, and Identity Management, giving us a High Availability level that we're using with the Oracle Access Manager solution. Those 3 products in the stack -- the OS, the middleware, and then the Identity Management software to go into the middleware -- was such a complicated process to set up. I think Oracle should have provided some sort of flow chart or guide to get these products installed faster and configured in such a way that you are comfortable.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's a complex product and it runs a bit slower than its competitors but it does automate user creation. Valuable Features:Automated User Creation and provisioning of connected resources in the case of Identity Manager, Access control to protected web resources with regards to Oracle Access Manager.Improvements to My Organization:OIM eliminates the need for manual creation of users and assigning of various resources. It reduces the time needed for onboarding new users.Room for Improvement:The management of workflows could use some improvement as well as the overall performance of the product. Because this is such a complex product, we find that it runs a bit slower than its competitors.Use of Solution:I have used the Oracle products for 7 years. I have experience with both the 10g and 11g versions of the product.Deployment Issues:Yes we encountered a lot of issues with deployment due to the fact that we are a highly customized environment.Stability Issues:No, this has not been much of an issue for us.Scalability Issues:No this has not been much of an issue for us. The product scales quite well with the size of our user base.Customer Service:The customer service for the product is satisfactory.Technical Support:The level of tech support could use some improvement.Previous Solutions:We did use a different product before going to Oracle and we made the switch due to lack of support for the other product.Initial Setup:The setup was complex due to too many customized provisioning workflows within our organization.Implementation Team:We implemented the product through a partner of the vendor. Their expertise was what we expected.Other Solutions Considered:Yes, we evaluated both Sun Identity Manager, and CA Identity Manger.Other Advice:I would say this is a good product but some time would have to be spent in planning and learning.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
