News Facts

Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for Web Access Management” positions Oracle in the Leaders quadrant.(1)
The Gartner Magic Quadrant positions vendors within a particular segment based on completeness of vision and their ability to execute on that vision.
According to Gartner, “The leaders in the WAM [Web Access Management] market for 2009 have matured, with larger vendors offering relatively strong products at reasonable prices, investing in new associated functionality and ‘complete identity management’ strategies that leverage their customer bases for increased sales and market share. The leaders have experienced continued strong growth year over year, while almost every other entrant in the Magic Quadrant has experienced slower growth or no growth, or is working from a significantly smaller customer base. To lead in the WAM and larger access management markets in 2009 and beyond, vendors will need to focus on providing a full-featured product, the necessary organizational skill set, deployment scenarios and expertise, and recommendations as to how individual customers can best use their products in their broader IAM initiatives.”
