News Facts

  • The first-ever Gartner, Inc. "Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Governance" recognizes Oracle as a leader, Oracle announced today. (1)
  • Oracle also announced today that Oracle is placed in the Leaders Quadrant of the 2011 "Magic Quadrant for User Administration/Provisioning." (2)
  • According to Gartner, leaders in Identity and Access Governance (IAG) are "composed of vendors that provide products with a good functional match to client requirements for establishing a governance system for access. These vendors have been successful in building an installed base and revenue stream within the IAG market, and have a relatively high viability rating (because of IAG revenue). Leaders also show evidence of superior vision and execution for anticipated requirements, as they relate to technology, methodology or means of delivery. Leaders typically have significant market share, strong revenue growth, and demonstrated early customer satisfaction with IAG capabilities and/or related service and support."
  • Gartner describes leaders in user administration/provisioning as "high-momentum vendors (based on sales, world presence and mind share growth), and they have evident track records in user provisioning across most, if not all, market segments. Business investments position them well for the future. Leaders demonstrate balanced progress and effort in the Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision categories. Their actions raise the competitive bar for all products in the market. They can and often do change the course of the industry."
  • Gartner Magic Quadrants position vendors within a particular market segment based on their completeness of vision and their ability to execute on that vision.
  • Oracle Identity Analytics delivers the advanced access certification and intelligence business managers need to meet increasingly complex time-consuming compliance requirements with out of the box business friendly views and prioritized risk scoring dramatically reducing the time need to complete reviews.
