CHAPTER 9Oracle Identity Manager
This chapter covers Oracle Identity Manager (OIM), which is central to Oracle’s identity management strategy. OIM provides a platform for designing provisioning processes for user and access information to solve the challenge of getting the right accounts and privileges automatically set up for users across all applications they need to access. Configuration of such provisioning automation can be done in many ways; we’ll show you some examples and best practice implementations of user provisioning. This chapter does not intend to cover the full set of OIM features and functionalities, and instead it highlights those that are used most frequently in solving provisioning problems.
