Thanks to everyone who attended the SANS Institute webinar covering the product review of Oracle Identity Manager. And a special thanks to our guest speakers from SuperValu - Phillip Black and Patrick Abreo.

If you missed the webcast, you can catch a replay here 

And here are the slides that were used in the webcast. 

There were many questions that we could not answer as we ran out of time. We have captured some of the questions with responses below.

Is Oracle Identity Analytics still offered as a separate product or is it part of Oracle Identity Manager?

Oracle Identity Manager and Oracle Identity Analytics are now offered as part of Oracle Identity Governance Suite. OIA and OIM share a common UI architecture, common data model and common support for connected and disconnected resources. 

When requesting new access/entitlements is there an approval process?

Yes. We leverage SOA BPEL-based workflows for approvals 

Are the identity self service capabilities based on Oracle ADF?

Yes they are completely based on Oracle ADF 

Can you give some examples of personalization and customization with Oracle Identity Manager 11gR2?

With the new UI config framework we can enable different levels of UI customization. Customers now have the ability to Point & click to customize; or drag and drop customization without any need for coding. So users can easily personalize the interface of their application within the browser. For example, they can change the logo, Rearrange, hide Home Page regions; regularly searched items can be saved and re-used; Searchable & search results columns can be configured; Sorting preferences are remembered and so on. For more sophisticated customization, Customers can also edit the standard JSF within the page to alter business rules, modify page flows, page layouts and other items.

Can you explain the role of sandboxes in customization?

Customers can make their custom changes within a sandbox so that it doesn’t impact their production environment. They can make their changes, validate those changes, stage and then commit those changes without affecting production users. This is similar to how source code control systems like perforce work
