Oracle Open World 2015: Notes from the Trenches on Your Digital Strategy


The beat of the Oracle Open World drum still resonates in my ears as we came to yet another grand finish of one of the world's greatest confluence of brilliant minds and ground-breaking technology. What astounds me with Oracle is how nimble we are for a giant the size that we are, especially when it comes to innovation in the Cloud. 

Thomas Kurian, Oracle President of Product Development, discussed new cloud services that show Oracle's deep innovation across cloud applications, platform, and infrastructure services. What I personally love about Kurian, being the geek that I am, is the demonstrations of the several services that are interspersed in his presentation, showing how easily people can tap Oracle's cloud services. "Any person, anyplace in the world, with just a browser, can access our cloud and get access to all these new product innovations we've delivered", Kurian said during his keynote Tuesday in San Francisco.  You can learn more on his message here: Press Release on Oracle's Cloud Innovation.

The WebCenter and BPM sessions ran to packed audiences clinging to the edge of their seats as Oracle spearheads the digital market. Oracle announced a new and upcoming Sites Cloud Service in the digital category for creation of multi-channel enagagement sites on the cloud. In addition Oracle Process Cloud Service, Document Cloud Service and Oracle Social Network, are well integrated with the rest of the cloud service stack, coming together to deliver on the next-generation enablement for line of business workers.

The highlight of the show was the Innovation Awards Night - the Grammy of Oracle - where our customers gain limelight for their creativity and innovation. In the Digital Experience category, we had Atradius, Credit Suisse, AFG and Sutton Tools steal the show. 

The sessions included customer successes, product deep dives, partner discussions, persona and/or industry based discussions, Cloud/PaaS lessons, live product demonstrations and Hands-On-Labs (HOL). To get a quick overview of the many sessions in the digital umbrella including Process Cloud Service, Document Cloud Service and the up and coming Sites Cloud Service, you can review the focus-ons:

Focus on: Digital Experience, Content and Business Process Management

Focus on: Content and Collaboration in the Cloud

Oracle's unique vision and offering gathered resounding attention for setting itself apart as the global leader in the digital business. The underlying theme of Oracle BPM and WebCenter this year established it as a complete, business driven, and solutions based offering that can transform organizations to deliver on the digital vision not just on-premise but also on the cloud. 

Overall Oracle Open World 2015 was a mindblowing event with outstanding teamwork and exceptional delivery on every front from the customer, partner, and employee base of the organization. To continue learning about how we can enable your digital business, visit us:

That our work is no longer a place but an activity – we take it anytime, anywhere on any device; that information is connected and contextual and securely available and that we are able to engage with our ecosystem round the clock, using any channel that we have at our disposal - mobile, web and social. We expect our work to be automated and to be social-, mobile- and cloud-enabled.

So, how is this new digital world reflected in our products and in our roadmaps?

Oracle Positioned as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Horizontal Portals, 2015

Gartner defines a portal as a personalized point of access to relevant information, business processes and other people. Portals support a wide range of vertical markets and business activities and address various audiences, including employees, customers and partners, and citizens. A horizontal portal offering is a software application or service that can be used to create and manage portals for a wide range of purposes.

Oracle is positioned as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Horizontal Portals for its Oracle WebCenter Portal offering. You can access the full report here.

Magic Quadrant

Figure 1. Magic Quadrant for Horizontal Portals

Figure 1.Magic Quadrant for Horizontal Portals

Source: Gartner (September 2015)


According to the Gartner report, the past five years has witnessed a massive transformation of the market for horizontal portals. The nexus of mobile, social, cloud and information has at once heightened the demand for this "personalized point of access..." and engendered alternative ways to accomplish it. A market that had become staid, standardized and many would argue commoditized by 2010 has been suddenly reinvigorated by a new emphasis on user experience, an apps mentality buttressed by mobile trends, and a new personalization that employs analytics, machine learning and graph algorithms rather than complicated and conflict-prone business rules to achieve context awareness. While the renewed portal market retains many of the principles, practices and value propositions of the old, the modern portal market has been transformed almost beyond recognition.

Oracle WebCenter Portal is a portal and composite applications solution that delivers intuitive user experiences for the enterprise that are seamlessly integrated with enterprise applications. Oracle WebCenter Portal optimizes the connections between people, information and applications, provides business activity streams so users can navigate, discover and access content in context, and offers dynamic personalization of applications, portals and sites so users have a customized experience.

With social, mobile and analytics driving the next wave of digital innovation, businesses require that portals provide intuitive yet personalized user experience with integrated social, collaboration and content management capabilities. Oracle WebCenter Portal is the complete, open and integrated enterprise portal and composite applications solution that enables the development and deployment of internal and external portals and websites, composite applications, self-service portals and mash-ups with integrated social and collaboration services and enterprise content management capabilities.

With Oracle WebCenter Portal, organizations can:

• Improve business productivity by providing employees, customers and partners with a modern user experience to access contextual information in a rich, personalized and collaborative environment.

• Speed development by providing developers with a comprehensive and flexible user experience platform that includes an extensive library of reusable components

• Increase business agility by extending and integrating their existing SaaS and on-premise applications such as Oracle Marketing Cloud, Oracle Sales Cloud, Oracle E-Business Suite; Siebel, PeopleSoft, and JD Edwards; and SAP seamlessly

Oracle is pleased to be named a Leader in the 2015 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Horizontal Portals. You can access the full report here.

To learn more about how Oracle WebCenter Portal can help your organization, visit us here. And, if you are coming to Oracle OpenWorld this year, be sure to visit our demogrounds and join us in our strategy, vision and roadmap session on Oracle WebCenter Portal and related solutions. This year we have a host of sessions on product deep dives, roadmap and strategy, customer successes, solution best practices, and a lot more. For complete information, we recommend you bookmark the following and add these sessions to your My Schedule tool today.

My Journey from Content Administrator to a Solution Consultant and the Lessons Learned

Guest post by Scott Smith, Redstone Content Solutions

I had the opportunity, about eight years ago, to transition into a role where I was administering Oracle WebCenter Content installations. I learned a lot over the next several years about Oracle, and their partner community.

When I first became our company’s Oracle WebCenter Content Administrator, we had four production servers (clustered into two – two server domains) running WebCenter Content 10g. As of one year ago – there are ten servers (clustered into five – two server domains) running WebCenter Content 11g.

We expanded the number of content items from just over 320,000 to more than 7,000,000 and Oracle WebCenter allowed us to scale easily. Oracle and an Oracle partner helped us through the growth transition.

This growth resulted in some challenges to ensure that the system was always running at its peak capability. As the system expanded to accommodate new functionality and metadata requirements, the need to rebuild the Oracle WebCenter Content index became a daunting task. With regular index rebuilds, the search speeds were acceptable, but not always optimal. We never considered an alternate platform since we knew that we were running the most robust and easily configurable system on the market. We had to learn to manage the expectations for how often we could rebuild the index and what could be expected in terms of search speed from complex searches.

As my career has transitioned and progressed, today I find myself “on the other side” of the fence. I have indeed joined the world of consulting with the very Oracle partner I had come to rely on in my "previous" life.

I now find myself in the position of being envious of those system administrators we serve today. The current release of Distributed Index (DI), from Redstone Content Solutions, has eliminated the need to manage expectations related to index rebuild and search times. Distributed Index integrates with Oracle WebCenter Content (it has been designated by Oracle as an Oracle Validated Integration). DI is an integration that allows an Oracle WebCenter Content Administrator to define and build multiple indexes against their content repository. These indexes can be distributed across hardware that is independent from the current Oracle WebCenter Content architecture. This further reduces search times and index rebuild times.

Some of the features and benefits include:

  • Faceted search
  • Ability to set-up multiple/individual indices based on profiles (See Image)
  • Horizontal and vertical scalability
  • Multi-threaded rebuild
  • Add and search content during a rebuild
  • Create and build an index without restarting the content server
  • Robust administrative page for maintenance of indices
    • Provides real-time feedback on status of an index and ETA on rebuild completion (See Image)
As my career continues to progress, I am excited about the possibilities that exist. I can help companies progress beyond what they thought was possible. They can continue to expand their use of Oracle WebCenter, and the tremendous functionality that it offers. The ability to provide support and solutions that bolster the return on investment for Oracle WebCenter customers is just one of the many reasons why I see a bright future in our partnership with Oracle.

Do not forget to utilize those partners who have experience and can help guide you with proven services and solutions that can smooth out those little bumps on the road to success.

To learn more about Redstone Content Solutions and Distributed Index, please follow the links below, or join us at Oracle OpenWorld 15 where we will be co-hosting this year’s Oracle WebCenter Appreciation Event.
