    2. 2. 2 Managing Oracle IdM at VMware Refresh Scale Build Building new IdM environments in the most efficient way possible Manage data, apply patches and hot fixes, firmware updates and system upgrades Scale out your infrastructure to satisfy your growing business needs and IT requirements
    3. 3. 3 Build: Cloning OAM & OID Solution Overview 1. Clone the Database Instance 2. Clone the OID instance 3. Reconfigure cloned OID 4. Rename the existing container in OID 5. Clone/Provision (or install) OAM components against cloned OID 6. Copy config from the old namespace to the new namespace 7. Update all OAM References MacBook Pro Monster © 2010 Mac Mcrae Prod IdM LT UAT QAI OID Identity WebPass Identity Console Access Access Manager
    4. 4. 4 Refresh: Automated User Data Refresh Solution Overview 1. Shell Command initiated to backup app configuration from Source OID 2. PPM gets response back for job completion 3. Shell Command initiated to purge all app data (Optional: or optimize for later retrieval) 4. Shell command initiated to restore app configuration to Source OID. 5. PPM gets response back for job completion PPM Console Source LDAP Target LDAP5 1 4 2 Unix Shell 3
    5. 5. 5 Scale: Provision New Servers On Demand Clone your servers to efficiently scale your infrastructure
    6. 6. 6 Environment Proliferation – No New Environments! IdM Footprint at VMware High Cost To Maintain Low Dev Prod Key IT Issues: Consolidation, Management and Scalability Leverage Private Cloud to reduce cost and complexity Test NIM Stage Perf  The IdM footprint is ripe for consolidation and resource sharing  Troubleshooting and supporting13 IdM environments is a drag on developer productivity and IT agility  Costs are compounded due to lack of automated configuration management and migration/sync tools
    7. 7. 7 Rethinking IdM for 2010 And Beyond  It’s not business-as-usual. Private Cloud adoption must be guided on a fast track to realize time-to- value and improve operational efficiency  Higher level conversations are required to organize IT resources with the mindset of moving towards a Private Cloud and enabling IT-As-A-Service for IdM with standards like SAML, XACML, SPML, OAuth2, et al.  The cost of not capitalizing on the potential of Private Cloud is so high that it warrants a closer look at how IdM (in particular) and SDLC environments (in general) should be architecturally viewed Identify leverage points for managing IdM in your environment
