Kuppinger Cole: Oracle Identity for Business Applications in Hybrid IT

WaiSau Sit
Director of Product Marketing, Security

Let’s face it. Legacy applications are becoming harder to manage and costly to migrate. Identity is critical to staying secure, and it must work with these applications and the entire hybrid IT infrastructure. Oracle’s identity solutions are built for these environments, with many strengths for the full breadth of Oracle business applications. There are no clear swim lanes; we cannot define these identity services as old and new IT. As we take a broad look at most enterprises today, the truth is they’re nearly always a mix of on-premises and cloud workloads. 

The shift of enterprise workloads is a long, multi-phase journey. The same can be said of identity in delivering comprehensive capabilities across the entire stack, regardless of where they exist. Identity solutions need to be built with this in mind in order to be strategically sustainable rather than tactical. Most vendors look at the market and their products with a “cloud first” approach, while the reality is that Identity needs to be built with a broader strategy.

’Oracle Identity Cloud Service (IDCS) provides, together with additional offerings in the field of security and identity, a broad range of options for customers on their journey to the cloud. A specific strength is the level of integration with Oracle business applications and databases, which make IDCS a strong fit for these organizations.
