I'm an implementer of OIM (10 years now). OIM is an excellent framework for a provisioning tool, but the connectors are terrible (fortunately easy to build your own against the API) and the UI is useless. The most successful OIM implementations I've come across (or built) have been ones that used a custom UI and/or just made everything scriptable. The API is really the saving grace of OIM. It's confusing, but it is powerful.

Sadly, I'm watching the product spiral downhill as of the last several versions.

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
