A lot of people wait with bated breath for Gartner’s Magic Quadrant reports on various technologies to come out. And in a relatively new and evolving space like user provisioning, the report carries even more weight in influencing the consumer base. Gartner just published their report on User Provisioning, and for the second year in a row Oracle (with its Oracle Identity Manager product) is firmly ensconced in the Leaders quadrant.
Interestingly, Oracle has pulled ahead of other vendors on “Completeness of Vision“. That is reflective of the strong leadership that exists within Oracle’s identity management group right now. It also reflects a lot of the innovation going into the vision for Fusion architecture and Application-Centric IdM. This is important considering the strong competition we face in the UP market (Novell and Courion just entered the Leaders quadrant in this report with some strong product offerings).
There is no intention within the team to rest on our laurels, and we have some really cool things planned for the Oracle Identity Manager product that will take it to the next level. You will start seeing these over the next few releases, so stay tuned to this blog for more on that.
