PaaS Launch and Cloud File Sharing and Collaboration

Originally published on WebCenter blog

Thanks for joining us for the big PaaS launch on Monday, June 22nd with Larry Ellison, Thomas Kurian and other senior Oracle and customer executives. Ellison announced more than 24 new services to Oracle Cloud Platform which is a comprehensive, integrated suite of services that make it easier for developers, IT professionals, business users, and analysts to build, extend, and integrate cloud applications and drive co-existence with the existing on-premise infrastructure. For more details on the announcement, cloud services and customer videos, you can catch the on demand online replay of the event.

One of the key areas for PaaS is cloud content and collaboration that drives frictionless user collaboration, content sharing and business process automation anywhere, anytime and on any device. As an enterprise, you will well recognize the need to drive workforce productivity and operational efficiency by enabling secure availability and access to content on any device, within and beyond the firewall and connecting it to the business processes and the applications (SaaS and on-premise) to well, get work done. So, beyond just cloud file sharing which is what current Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) solutions do, you need to be able to share and access content in context and then be able to drive business processes using that content. That is true cloud content and collaboration and that is what will drive output and improve productivity in a digital workplace.

Check out this video that we recently released. While it discusses a specific use case tracking the lifecycle from marketing to sales to service, imagine the power of enabling real time collaboration among employees, remote workforce, external vendors and partners and being able to drive output from anywhere, anytime and any device. And let us know what use case do you come across often in your workplace; we look forward to hearing from you.

Oracle AppAdvantage for Digital Experience: Delivering Consistent Multichannel Experiences

Author: Lance Shaw, Senior Principal Product Director, Oracle

The way that your organization delivers information has become an increasingly important aspect of how you engage with customers, partners and employees. It also reflects significantly on your corporate brand and how you are viewed in the marketplace. Oracle AppAdvantage is Oracle's approach to maximizing the value of Oracle Applications with Oracle Fusion Middleware as it helps you leverage your existing investments while standardizing on core enterprise applications. Naturally, most organizations rely on multiple business systems to process, track, coordinate and deliver vital information to customers, partners and employees. Each user expects a personal experience, but those experiences will vary according to their roles and personas.

The method and style by which information is delivered is commonly called the Digital Experience. To keep your customers engaged and satisfied, the Digital Experience must be consistent across web and mobile delivery channels, with content presented appropriately within each context.

We have all seen when a company fails at delivering a quality web experience. Information delivered to a customer or employee varies depending whether it is accessed from a tablet device or a browser. Visual branding and the “look and feel” vary widely or sometimes the information is just wrong as it is not being delivered from a central system. Customers, business partner and employees all expect a better experience.

In order to provide this type of consistent and integrated online experience, organizations using Oracle Applications must be able to integrate web content management systems with enterprise systems of record and securely deliver this information in a contextual and self-service fashion. A complete Digital Experience can’t be disconnected from these critical enterprise applications.

Oracle AppAdvantage is a program powered by Oracle Fusion Middleware technologies that helps customers strengthen their investments in Oracle Applications and integrate new technology without adding to the applications’ development lifecycles. Customers that use Oracle E-Business Suite or Oracle’s PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, or Siebel solutions—as well as any of Oracle’s industry solutions or other Oracle Applications—can fulfill customer expectations with Oracle AppAdvantage solutions for Digital Experience.

Ultimately, the success of the Digital Experience depends upon the quality and quantity of information available from enterprise applications and the ease with which it can be accessed and utilized. The middleware solutions in the Oracle AppAdvantage program enable Oracle Applications customers to deliver a seamless Digital Experience that maintains the corporate “look and feel” of your brand while targeting individuals based on their current context and preferences.

To learn more about the power of Oracle AppAdvantage for Digital Experience, watch the upcoming webcast where a leading doors and windows manufacturer, Pella discusses how they are leveraging Oracle AppAdvantage for Digital Experience to empower their customers, dealers as well as their sales network and are fueling continuous improvement, in turn.
