Over the past year, we’ve covered several Oracle technologies and have covered many Oracle University classes. Ranging from Oracle OIM, OAM, and other identity and access management products, today we have the pleasure of featuring a guest blogger from GCA to discuss the newest features in Oracle’s newest release, Solaris 11. Oracle Solaris 11 is a brand-new version of the traditional Solaris operating system. It includes many upgrades and additional features.

Working in multiple systems, applications, domains, and environments can be very frustrating and time consuming when controlling and maintaining growing businesses needs and requirements. Such things like passwords can be forgotten, lost, or even stolen more frequently in organizations that do not use any type of secure identity and access management solution. Also, provisioning users for authentication and authorization into various systems can sometimes take an entire team of resources days, weeks, or even months, depending on the size of the organization. This is why identity and access security are extremely important in almost every enterprise today. Many companies have already started to put into place different security solutions using software for two-factor authentication, and/or using identity and access management products like those offered by NetIQ, Oracle, CA, and ForgeRock.

Developers are working together to help improve the software and make a strong code base. OpenIDM 2.0 is designed to help provide businesses with a solution for business process handling and compliance and the product excels at this by using JSON for reconciliation, synchronization, and mapping, making the process of bulk importing users into a system more developer/administrator friendly.
Since our blog’s inception, we’ve covered Oracle OIM, OAM, and other identity and access management products.

Today we have the pleasure of featuring another collaborative entry by an Oracle awarded GCA instructor to highlight Oracle identity management courses available to you.
2011 has probably been one of the worst years for security breaches in the history of networking. As I write this post, I am looking at reports of private information left available in a publicly readable location or sold by employees looking for a quick buck -and this all within the last month! Organizations clearly have more threats than ever, both from within and without.
