First I start with big Why : Why should you learn Oracle Access Manager (OAM) ?
Security is most important component in business applications for enterprises. With applications accessible from the internet and SSO/Federation integration with cloud applications, more and more companies are implementing Oracle Access Manager and looking for consultants/employees with OAM knowledge.
OAM is Oracle’s recommend Single Sign-On (SSO) and Federation solution, now mandatory in Oracle Fusion Applications.
OAM is still fairly new compared to other skills like DBA or Apps DBA or Java Development, there are not enough skilled OAM resources in market. Getting a Job in OAM is comparatively easy provided you know OAM .
OAM Professionals are usually paid more for number of reasons and this has benefited me personally (I always believe if I can do it then you can too).
Next , What should you learn in OAM ?
There are mainly two category
a) Implementation/Administration/Integration – Architecture, Install, Configuration, Administration, and Integration with Applications
b) Development – developing Authentication Plug-Ins and Custom Login Pages
Note: In my FREE course, I am going to cover a) Implementation, Administration, and Integration.
Like everything else you should start with Concepts & Architecture , followed by Installation & Configuration then Start/Stop (If you are Admin). You should understand where WebGate fits in the picture and why & how to integrated OAM with LDAP Server. You should then integrate OAM with at least one business application (Java like Fusion Middleware/EBS or .NET like Sharepoint) . You also know understand OAM’s Policy Model (Authentication Scheme, Authorization Policies), Session Management etc including Global Logout.
For more Advanced, you should also understand deploying OAM in High Availability (HA) & Disaster Recovery (DR) including Active-Active deployment across Data Centre (Multi Data Centre – MDC).

Why I started this FREE Mini Course ?
I launched my signature OAM Course (this is a paid program) last year and since than 100s of students have gone through and got amazing results (I’ll be sharing some of the success stories & testimonials in coming posts or you can check on our private facebook group).
Since I launched my paid OAM program, I receive lot of emails mentioning they want to Join the course but currently are not in position to afford this course (I totally get it) and hence I started a FREE mini course that covers things that you should learn and link of Oracle Documents, my and other good Blog links related to OAM , Videos and My Oracle Support Notes .
