Product Report: Novell Identity Manager 4

Report Details

Novell Identity Manager 4 is a family of products in the category of enterprise provisioning, allowing synchronizing and managing identities and entitlements, including strong policy and reporting features. Beyond the basic capabilities, Novell has added advanced role management and policy management features as well as new reporting capabilities and support for cloud applications. That reflects the overall trend in the market from technical provisioning tools towards more complete platforms with support for a multitude of target systems as well as integrated Access Governance capabilities.

The product is the new release of one of the most established tools in the category of Enterprise Provisioning systems. It started as Novell DirXML with a meta directory approach and has been enhanced significantly since then. The product has been amongst the technically leading platforms in that market segment at any time and continues to keep this position with the new release.

Novell Identity Manager 4 is a leading-edge solution for enterprise provisioning, with a strong technical foundation and significantly increased interfaces for business as well as technical users. Novell has managed to proceed in the evolution from a technical synchronization solution towards a business tool. For many use cases, Novell Identity Manager 4 might be sufficient without additional Access Governance tools in place, even from an IT Governance perspective.

With the improvements of the current release, Novell Identity Manager 4 is a must in evaluation processes for Identity Provisioning platforms. Notably, the (still used) eDirectory is fully transparent, thus the tool is as well a good fit for identity integration and management in non-Novell environments. The new release especially helps in reducing deployment costs through pre-packaged installations and configurations.

Meet the Next-Generation Oracle

Oracle OpenWorld 2019 has just wrapped yesterday, and if there is a single word that can describe my impressions of it, that would be “different”. Immediately noticeable was the absence of the traditional Oracle Red spilling into the streets around the Moscone Center in San Francisco, and the reason behind it is the new corporate design system called Redwood. You can already see its colors and patterns applied to the company’s website, but more importantly, it defines new UI [...]
