Oracle Identity & Access Management


Our client is one of the largest educational institutions in the Kingdom serving over 40,000 students and 13,000 employees with over 20 IT applications which requires a sophisticated security scheme.

Our client requires integrating major application to use Single Sign-On which will allow users to use their university ID to access all systems they are authorized to access.

Our client’s IT infrastructures have numerous applications on heterogeneous hardware and software platforms. This increases the cost and complexity of user identity and access management through the lifecycle of the user account. The issue is complex: from bringing in a new employee/contingent worker/student and granting access to required systems and applications to termination of an employee and removing access to maintain the integrity and security of data and systems. Moreover, there are activities such as password resets, changes to the account, and changes to permissions, requesting new IDs, deleting old IDs, and more needed during the life of the user account. These are further complicated by the need or requirement to conform to a set of security standards and auditing requirements.
