App Modernization: Moving from OAM to Azure AD

Quickly modernize authentication of an application from a legacy IdP to a modern cloud one like Azure AD without the need to refactor the app

Future-proof the application via identity abstraction to quickly add new post-modernization identity services such as MFA, Passwordless, or Identity Verification

Leverage automation to replicate the process at scale for all your applications and retire your EOL legacy vendor contracts

Recipe summary: app modernization – moving from OAM to Azure AD

This recipe demonstrates how Maverics makes it easy to seamlessly move an application from a legacy IdP, Oracle Access Manager (OAM), to a modern one like Azure without any need to rewrite that application or change the user’s access experience. The recipe shows both the pre and post-modernization app access workflows, which remain unchanged from the employee’s perspective. In just a few minutes’ time Maverics is deployed as a Application Gateway in front of the target app and a simple configuration update is all that’s needed to redirect user authentication to the new target IdP.

Recipe instructions: app modernization – moving from OAM to Azure AD

Authentication flow steps before the app modernization

  1. 1

    The user attempts to access the target app via an existing OAM-protected authentication flow

  2. 2

    If OAM's legacy policy definitions are met, the user can access the target app

Authentication flow steps after the app modernization

  1. 1

    The user attempts to access the target app via an existing OAM-protected authentication flow

  2. 2

    The application’s policy is now defined by the Maverics Application Gateway instead of OAM

  3. 3

    Maverics evaluates the new app policy in the config settings and now redirects the user to Azure AD for authentication

  4. 4

    Once the user authenticates against Azure AD they are granted access to the app

  5. 5

    OAM can be quickly retired once all of the organization’s apps are modernized with Maverics
