Announcing Oracle Identity Management 11gR2: New features for mobile, social & cloud, and new Privileged Account Management.
Today Oracle announces a major new release of its Identity Management offering and with it comes some very cool new features. A lot of features in this release are focused on extending Oracle’s expertise in security and IDM to mobile applications, social identities, and cloud applications.
New features support native mobile security and single sign-on, social sign-on: to allow customers to log into a website with their social identities, and improved security and integration for cloud applications. Big improvements have also been made to the self service access request UI to make it more business user friendly, including plain English searching to request application access and roles, and shopping cart style check-out.
Automated confirmations and workflows allow business users to get updates and check the status of their requests. In addition, extensive customization is now possible to allow companies to completely control the look and feel of these pages.

Also introduced in this release: Oracle Privileged Account Manager (OPAM) is a whole new set of functionality focused on managing administrative passwords for applications, databases and operating systems. Although it can operate as a stand-alone application, the real value comes from its integration with other IDM components: such as self service password request UI and automated workflow approvals via Oracle Identity Manager, and detailed historical reporting via Oracle’s BI tools.
