Oracle Beehive and IRM
By gravax on Oct 15, 2009
Just out of the session at Oracle Open World on Beehive and IRM. I think these 2 products make a fantastic combination. The capability of sharing extremely sensitive documents between users is known for a long time. My friends at Cyber-Ark Software have been doing it for quite a few years now.
The issue I have with this Oracle combination is that it is windows targetted. The IRM client/plugin for desktop, which provides great functions like preventing copy/paste, printing, re-saving the documents, only runs on Windows...
In Europe, where many (if not all) of the governments are progressively moving to open source (Linux desktops, OpenOffice.org productivity suite...), this basically locks them out of that market.
