Oracle Idenity & Access Manager Implementation and Upgrade

One of the world's largest Healthcare research company

Business Challenge

One of the world’s largest Healthcare research company was looking to implement an Oracle and Identity Manager. The growing company due to a merger was finding it challenging to keep up with the onboarding, password management and access requirement of their customers, sponsors and employees, the integration of heterogeneous environments and applications had effectuated. The primary concern was provisioning and single sign-on in the new integrated platform. There was an additional requirement of upgrading to the new versions of OIM as well as the necessity of reporting for an insight into the business data and auditing requirements. There had been an influx of 20+ active directory systems due to mergers and acquisition which needed reconciliation.


Proposed Solution

99Oranges were instrumental in designing the implementation phases and developing new integrated processes and applications which could leverage the OIM capabilities to address single sign-on and provisioning in a heterogeneous IT landscape. The provisioning module of OIM contained the “who” and “what” of provisioning with a detailed version of user profiles, access policies, and resources along with business processes workflows and business rules. The reconciliation engine of OIM facilitated business roles synchronization located inside and outside the provisioning system to ensure consistency. The experienced team at 99Oranges developed custom interfaces/applications to simplify the run and maintenance phase of the implementation. The implementation team leveraged OIM’s Oracle BI publisher as the reporting solution, which classified according to the functional areas such as Access Policy Reports, Attestation, Request and Approval Reports, Password Policy Reports and so on. This allowed the decision makers to make informed decisions based on actionable insights.


The result of the implementation and upgrade was as follows:

  • Seamless provision and single sign-on for the new integrated IT platform
  • An auditing and reporting functionality which provided data based on various functional areas
  • Amalgamation and consolidation of 20+ active directory systems into one integrated access control system.
  • Mitigation of IT cost due to the removal of any redundant provisioning and access control data
  • A solution which provided flexibility, automation, and performance required for a large-scale organization.
