Best Practice Approaches to Migrate your Provisioning Products – for Sun and Others

Conference Agenda

With the acquisition of SUN Microsystems by Oracle back in 2009, it quickly became clear that the Oracle Identity Manager will win the race for the Provisioning product of choice in the Oracle Identity Management Suite, and not Sun Identity Manager (now Oracle Waveset Identity Manager). So , as the software´s end of lifetime is approaching, it is time to start migration planning, if customers haven’t done so yet. But it is not only about migrating from Sun. We have seen quite a lot of acquisitions in the market during the past years, which influence the customer’s strategies for Provisioning in particular and IAM in general. There are also many situations where customers, for other reasons, want to migrate away from the Provisioning tool they’ve installed.

However, migrating your provisioning tool will be not as easy as some vendors claim, because Identity Management implementations are mainly not plain vanilla out-of-the-box, and there is no such thing as a "miracle migration toolset" – honestly, there are only a few toolsets (like the one offered by Oracle for migrating the Sun Identity Manager/Oracle Waveset Identity Manager to Oracle Identity Manager). More important, moving from one Identity Manager to another is not necessarily the best choice, given that there many more alternatives for IAM infrastructures than a few years ago, not to speak of the fact that many organizations struggle with multiple Provisioning tools which came in through acquisitions of other companies or through regional or departmental decisions not consistent with the central IT strategy. These architectures include those centered around Access Governance, as well as several other options.

This workshop, guided by KuppingerCole Senior analyst and former SUN Microsystems Chief Identity Architect Fulup Ar Foll, will provide you with the one most important thing you need now: a totally vendor independent view from the true industry expert on this subject.

  • Make a rational decision on when to migrate from your current provisioning tool.
  • Plan your migration strategy based on industry best practice.
  • Select the best tools and approaches to perform the migration.
  • Identify and manage the risks associated with migration.

Migrating away from your Current Provisioning Product - Options and Challenges

Migrating away from your Current Provisioning Product - Options and Challenges
Martin Kuppinger, KuppingerCole • Mike Neuenschwander, iC Consult Americas

Regardless of what service providers or vendors may have told you: migrating away from Sun Identity Manager or any of the other Provisioning tools will not be an easy task, and it may not even be a mainly technical task. Just think of all the processes behind a myriad of custom forms and workflows created in a proprietary XML language or following other proprietary approaches. Since the time when those processes were defined, documented, and finally implemented, many things have changed. Big...

Migration Destinations Round Table
Niels von der Hude, Beta Systems Software • Mike Neuenschwander, iC Consult Americas • Jim Taylor, NetIQ • Paul Walker, Clear Skye • Luke Forsyth, AlixPartners

Most vendors do offer migration proposals for Sun Identity Manager/Oracle Waveset Identity Manager, either explicitly ("Plan B"), or implicitly. In this session we will give an overview on those offerings and first let every vendor represented in this workshop describe the key elements of his offering. Then, you will create a matrix on how those elements fit to your individual needs, and get an independent view on who might best serve your needs. We also will discuss the question of how to...
