The ICAM architecture has become the predominant security architecture for government organizations. A growing number of federal, state, and local organizations are in various stages of using Oracle ICAM solutions. The relevance of ICAM has clearly extended beyond the Federal ICAM mandates to any government program that must enable standards based interoperability like health exchanges and public safety. The state government endorsed version of ICAM was just released with the NASCIO SICAM Roadmap.
ICAM solutions require an integrated security architecture. The major new release in August of Oracle Identity Management 11gR2 focuses on a platform approach to identity management. This makes it easier for government organizations to acquire and implement a comprehensive ICAM solution, rather than individual products. The following analysts reports describe the value of the Oracle Solutions:
- According to The Aberdeen Group: “Organizations can save up to 48% deploying a platform of (identity management) solutions when compared to deploying point solutions”
- IDC Product Flash, July 2012: “Oracle may have hit the home run grand slam in identity management recently with the announcement of Oracle Identity Management 11g R2."
