Vendor Report: Oracle
Oracle has, largely through making acquisitions, transformed itself over the past few years into one of the leading suppliers in the IAM (Identity and Access Management) and GRC (Governance, Risk Management, Compliance) areas. Within these IT market segments, the Company is now in a position to deliver solutions covering the majority of requirements and it maintains one of the broadest service portfolios of all suppliers, even if there continue to be sporadic gaps.
This situation does however create challenges in relation to the integration requirement. Many of the acquired products have/had different architectures, application and user interfaces. Oracle has addressed these issues at an early stage. But more action is still required. What is not in doubt, however, is Oracle's pursuit of a clearly defined strategy in this regard and, compared to many other providers in the market, it has made rapid progress with respect to integration. But varying product histories have the potential to cause projects to experience increased time and effort in relation to integration and administration.
Oracle has a past record of demonstrating its capability in the thorough implementation of strategies. This is what makes Oracle a viable supplier, and one that should always be taken into consideration in decision-making processes undertaken in this market segment, even where systems are not based on Oracle databases.

Nothing personal against anyone in particular, but it seems to me that it perfectly represents the current state of cybersecurity across almost any industry. Although the cybersecurity tools are arguably becoming better and more sophisticated, and, for example, cloud service providers are constantly rolling out new security and compliance features in their platforms, the [...]
