How Datawiza Migrates Apps from OAM to Microsoft Entra ID

In collaboration with Microsoft Entre ID, Datawiza effectively supplants Oracle Access Manager (OAM), providing a cohesive solution that encapsulates Single Sign-On (SSO), Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), and finely-tuned access control for web applications.

Our advanced Datawiza Access Proxy extends native support to widely-used legacy web application integration models such as Kerberos, Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA), Header-Based Authentication, and URL-level authorization. Consequently, this allows the transition from OAM without necessitating burdensome application rewrites.

Further streamlining the process, Datawiza’s deployment model eliminates the need for supplementary middleware or database servers. It provides comprehensive support, not only for virtual machines but also for modern platforms like Docker Containers and Kubernetes, showcasing its adaptability to evolving technology landscapes.

Please refer to the diagram below for a visual illustration of our effective migration strategy.

  1. User initiates web application access.
  2. The Datawiza Access Proxy intercepts, redirecting unauthenticated users to Microsoft Entrad ID for federated authentication, similar to actions by OAM WebGate.
  3. Microsoft Entra ID employs cloud identity functions to authenticate the user – Single Sign-On, MFA, and Federation.
  4. Users are rerouted back to Datawiza Access Proxy to set up the session, authorize URL access, and forward user information to the enterprise app via authentication strategies like Header-Based Authentication or IWA/Kerberos.
  5. The enterprise app processes the user information and responds accordingly.
