SIM to OIM Migration: Strategies for Success
By Darin_Pendergraft_Oracle on Jun 17, 2013
In the fall of 2012, Oracle launched a major upgrade to its IDM portfolio: the 11gR2 release. 11gR2 had four major focus areas:
- More simplified and customizable user experience
- Support for Cloud, Mobile, and Social applications
- Extreme scalability
- Clear upgrade path
For many SUN customers, the upgrade path continues to not be so clear. There are two main strategies for this type of upgrade: the “big bang” complete reimplementation, and the incremental migration/coexistence strategy.
To help better understand your upgrade choices, I am pleased to introduce the first in a series of three whitepapers focused on SUN Identity Manager (SIM) to Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) migration.
Then, in Part 2, he will discuss the proper steps that should be taken during the planning phase to ensure a smooth transition from SIM to OIM.
