Importance of Transparency in Government

By Mitchell Palski – Oracle Fusion Middleware Specialist

Open government is not a new concept – its modern roots can be traced back to efforts by democratic societies to bring openness to government dealings. In the United States, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) dates back to the mid 1960’s. Today, most national governments, states, provinces, municipalities and other government jurisdictions have committed to increased transparency. Most recognize that a transparent government is an essential element of a free and democratic society. The White House issued a Memorandum titled “Transparency and Open Government” that states “Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.” The memorandum lists three key principles:

  1. Government should be transparent.
  2. Government should be participatory.
  3. Government should be collaborative.

Open Government policies are already helping to contribute to the awareness off citizens and public entities, the success of partnering organizations (such as sub-agencies and authorities) and innovation of new government services. With open data and service policies in place, we are faced with the fundamental requirement to apply those policies to our daily operations as easily and cost-effective as possible.

How is information shared and accessed in State and Local government?

The Sunlight Foundation is a national, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that uses the tools of civic tech, open data, policy analysis, and journalism to make our government and politics more complete, equitable and effective democratic participation. Let’s use this foundation’s guiding best-practices as a model to lay out how information is being made available for sharing and re-use. 
  • Sharing qualitative data in the form of objective reporting
  • Building informative and intuitive websites and mobile apps
  • Providing access to APIs that power existing applications to be re-used by others
In order to deliver these Open Government services, there are intrinsic technology needs to:
  • Secure document collaboration and distribution
  • Rapidly develop mobile friendly user experiences
  • Manage and measure the performance of access to disparate systems
  • Automate self-service requests to data and services
Implementing cloud-based solutions can not only make government more efficient and cost-effective, but also improve the accessibility to information and data.

Oracle and Open Government

Oracle offers a wide variety of Cloud technology and application products that can support government transparency efforts in these key areas:
  1. Technology infrastructure
  2. Information access and presentation
  3. Service performance
  4. Budget/financial Information
  5. Access to Public Documents
Oracle Cloud allows constituents/citizens, employees, and processes to stay connected with one mobile, social, cloud strategy. It avoids data silos and fragile point-to-point integrations with one standards-based, connected platform. The Oracle Cloud offers complete customer data isolation and security at multiple tech layers for maximum security, control, and visibility.
  • Collaborate and secure documents with Oracle Document Cloud Service
    • Easily share public information without compromising private information assets. 
    • Have choice of user or instance segregation for complete control of content. With the ability to define access rights, authorized users will have their documents available to them, wherever they are, using whatever device they have handy. 
    • The service is available on mobile phones, tablets, the web, or a desktop.
  • Automate business processes and information requests with Oracle Process Cloud Service
    • Empowers Line-of-Business and Process Designers to build, customize and change custom business applications for information requests.
    • Provides modern, targeted, multi-channel (web, mobile, email) user interfaces to increase the effectiveness of the process participants.
    • Conduct root-cause analysis, identify bottlenecks, and provide guided navigation to quickly fix misbehaving processes.
  • Rapidly develop mobile apps with Mobile Cloud Service
    • Cleanly separate API design and implementation to help keep app updates backward-compatible.
    • Develop fresh and modern B2E and B2C mobile apps, no matter where the data resides, using your favorite IDE.
    • Secure your apps end-to-end with enterprise-ready security patterns
  • Collect, publish, and manage enterprise APIs with Oracle SOA Cloud Service
    • Developers can easily create REST and SOAP services for backend applications, including orchestration capabilities.
    • Facilitates the creation of APIs that expose the functionality of backend systems and services.
    • Track and trace your transactions to have full visibility of your integration tier.
Conclusion
The concepts of transparency and Open Government have been in existence in various forms for many years. Oracle Cloud solutions can help provide citizens with easy and open access to information and improve the way that state and local government make data available to citizens and to partnering agencies. The outcome of these efforts will: 
  1. Provide more accurate insight for voters and law-makers
  2. Enable government IT to become more agile and responsive to changing requirements
  3. Reduce government spending through readily available information and the re-use of services

Oracle Not Just for Big Business, Says Toolmaker

Oracle not just for big business, says toolmaker

Oracle is traditionally associated with larger businesses, but its growing range of cloud offerings makes it just as applicable to smaller organisations that don't have hundreds of database administrators and analysts, Sutton Tools technology manager Steve Dowey told iTWire.

Melbourne-based Sutton Tools makes a variety of tools for the consumer and industrial markets, with particular expertise in round-shank cutting tools such as drill bits. It is a core participant in the Defence Materials Technology Centre.

The company is following the servitisation path, which in this context can be seen as providing customers with the holes they need, not just the drills and other tools that make them.

Disrupting Civic Digital Engagement

By Franco Amalfi, Director, Digital Engagement Strategy of Oracle Public Sector North America. Original write up can be found here.

Digital experiences are now the cornerstone of interactions with government services, driven in part by the rapid spread of web, mobile, and social channels. Citizens are in control. They decide how, when, and where they want to engage with organizations – whether it is in a service center, over the phone, via a mobile app, email, or on the web. No matter which channel they choose, constituents expect government to recognize them, who they are, what processes or interactions are underway, and to do so at every touch point. Given the fluidity of today’s online interactions, citizens are often one click away from broadcasting a bad experience with your city to hundreds of friends, or abandoning an online service for a high cost in-person transaction.

The more digital engagement becomes culturally ingrained, the more vital it becomes to providing good customer service. To better reach customers, companies are using digital technology to promote, deliver, and enable innovative services that reliably create positive experiences for their target audiences.  Now it’s up to government to meet this new standard. To reach constituents in the digital age, successful cities must cultivate those same instincts. They need to learn how to use technology to deliver their services and messages in a way that appeals to their customers – tech-savvy modern citizens. In doing so, they can build better relationships and interactions with all constituents – any time, any place, any device.

“The innovative use of technology is fundamentally transforming how the American people do business and live their daily lives,” President Barack Obama stated in 2012, as he announced the Federal government’s Digital Government initiative in a memorandum to heads of executive departments and agencies.[1]

Citizens want to feel, in their communications with government agencies, like their voices are being heard. In fact, in a January 2014 survey of 5,000 citizens from 10 countries, 76 percent of the Americans polled wanted more citizen participation and engagement in government, answering “tend to agree” or “strongly agree” to the question “Should people be more involved in shaping how public services are designed or delivered?”[2]

Digital engagement empowers constituents with the ability to learn, share, engage, and let their voices be heard – in real-time. People want to be able to access government services and solutions anytime and anyplace. Digital engagement technologies help government effectively meet those needs.
The initial building blocks for success for cities are to:
  • Establish an expectation of excellence. Public perception of government services is generally low.  Leaders in this space need to define an internal and external expectation of quality, timely service and manage to that expectation.  Digital experience technologies like social media, mobile apps, email, and others make it easy to service new channels, integrate them into existing work teams, and exceed expectations.  These tools help highlight positive events, promote new innovative campaigns and gather feedback on existing initiatives.
  • Enhance customer service. Demand for services from constituents is constantly increasing. By adopting digital technologies, such as web, mobile, and self-service, government agencies can deliver a personalized experience, and balance responsiveness while containing costs, leading to increased customer satisfaction while meeting resource constrictions.
  •  Promote civic participation: Engage citizens in improving processes for your city.  Citizens want to feel that they are making a difference. Providing citizens with a platform to collaborate with city officials through digital technologies will lead to the formation of innovative ideas that will create value for all, and increase the sense of belonging to the community. 
  • Empower employees. Like other citizens, government employees embrace the efficiencies and effectiveness of digital technologies in their personal lives.  Empower them to serve constituents with these same services and channels and help them know that they are providing great service. Engaged employees will deliver better experiences to your citizens, leading to increased customer and employee satisfaction
Citizens of the digital age want easy access to the agencies that serve them. To meet that need, cities must modernize and focus on orchestrating personalized interactions with each and every constituent across channels and devices. They must understand the evolving needs of their constituents and use a constituent-centric approach to engage with their audience, taking advantage of all the tools and channels available to serve customers of all ages and in all demographic groups, at home and across the globe.

Questions Asked, Answered from Webcast: 3 Ways to Power Collaboration and Mobility

Thanks to everyone who joined us earlier this week on our live webcast “Three Ways to Power Digital Workplace Collaboration and Mobility”. For those who missed it or are interested in catching, the webcast replay, the on demand recording is now available. You will also find a copy of the presentation for download there.

We also thank you for your questions and interest. Due to limited time, we were able to drive real time responses to most, but not all, questions. So, for good measure, I have captured relevant questions and answers from the live webcast here. Please do keep the communication going. Feel free to post your comments and questions here, start your free trial at: cloud.oracle.com/documents and visit us at www.oracle.com/digitalcollaboration for more information on the solutions and potential next steps for you. We are committed to making your cloud journey easier and more meaningful.

Can Documents Cloud be used with Salesforce.com?

Yes. Oracle Documents Cloud comes with REST APIs that allow you to easily integrate with Salesforce.com or any other CRM, ERP, on premises or SaaS applications and other systems.

Do we need to buy Oracle Mobile Cloud Service to enable mobile use of Process Cloud? Same question for Documents Cloud?

Both Oracle Documents Cloud and Oracle Process Cloud come with their native mobile applications that can be easily installed from your mobile store. The great advantage of these Oracle Platform as a Service (PaaS) solutions are that they easily plug and play together. So, if for example, you are looking to build a custom mobile app for sales reps or to serve a specific function, you can easily build the mobile app with Oracle Mobile Cloud Service that will drive content with Documents Cloud and processes using Oracle Process Cloud.

How do you maintain data segregation for security and compliance?

Security is a key tenant for Oracle PaaS solutions. Oracle Documents Cloud support data and user seggregation. For example, you can have a public instance and a separate private instance to support your security and corporate policy compliance. You can even segregate on user types. Plus, you have granular privileges control for folder sharing, link sharing, link expiry and such to enforce data and information security.

What is the benefit of using Process Cloud over Oracle BPM?

Oracle Process Cloud offers you a subscription based business process management service in the Cloud. Designed for business users, it allows for rapid process design and automation by users off any device without IT reliance. One of the major benefits to using Oracle Process Cloud is that Oracle handles the installation and uptime. Other benefits include easy integration with other Oracle Cloud services (including Oracle Documents Cloud, Oracle Mobile Cloud, etc.), other Oracle and third party on-premises or Cloud systems.

Are Documents Cloud and Process Cloud integrated together?

Many of our customers, including Mythics, are indeed using these two solutions together to enhance their process automation and document collaboration activities. This means that processes can be kicked-off during content/document collaboration and in turn, you can attach a document to a process. In addition, both services have great REST APIs which allow users to drive their own integration with existing solutions and applications.

Is Documents Cloud public or private/on premise?

Oracle Documents Cloud is a service available in Oracle public cloud. You can see the related services on cloud.oracle.com. Given Oracle’s pedigree in on-premises content management with Oracle WebCenter Content, we are one of the leading providers to support hybrid, public and on-premises content management and sharing.

What branch of Oracle does the Documents Cloud Service fall under- for example, Customer Experience, Business Intelligence, or Enterprise Resource Planning?

Oracle Documents Cloud Service is part of Oracle Cloud Platform for content and process. Oracle has the distinct advantage of leveraging resources, learnings and R&D from our on-premises Oracle WebCenter and Oracle BPM solutions as foundational elements to provide you the most comprehensive, holistic and proven cloud solutions. For more information, please visit oracle.com/digitalcollaboration.

Mythics – are you doing document sharing as part of the process with external parties too (legal, for example)?

Currently, our process is internal only. However, we often communicate with external parties. Increasingly, we are recommending the Documents Cloud Service to do this. However, this is a shift in thinking. Many people are used to emailing files via email. It will take a while before this changes.

This is for Mythics – who is doing process modeling in the company? Are you involving IT or business analysts?

Mythics is an IT solutions company, so our business analyst functions overlap with IT. To compare with other industries, we are involving both sides of the company in process modeling.

Does Oracle Documents Cloud Services come with a document viewer?

Yes. Oracle Documents Cloud Service does have a document viewer that allows proper rendering of all document types on any device. In addition, Oracle Documents Presenter app allows you to present curated content directly off your tablet. Sales reps find the Presenter app particularly useful for impactful, visually appealing presentations right off their iPads, et al.

Does the document viewer/Documents Presenter support annotations capabilities for collaborations among users?

Yes. You can make and view annotations from Oracle Documents Cloud web application.

Will Sites Cloud be integrated with Documents and Process Cloud Services?

Quite like Oracle’s other PaaS services including Oracle Documents Cloud Service and Oracle Process Cloud Service, Oracle Sites Cloud will support integration with other Oracle PaaS services. In this webcast, for example, you saw an example of how community sites can benefit from pulling content, conversations and processes all in one place, all in context. You will continue to see more of this from Oracle in the coming weeks and months. Take a look at Mythics blog post on early impressions of oracle Sites Cloud Service, coming out of OOW: http://www.mythics.com/about/blog/oracles-sites-cloud-service-upcoming-new-and-exciting

Mythics – how do you see public institutions using Process and Documents cloud given the compliance requirements?

I recently attended Oracle OpenWorld. I noted several Public Sector organizations interest and adoption of Platform as a Service cloud tools. Process Cloud and Documents Cloud are industry agnostic tools and can be used different business areas. Specific to compliance requirements, not all public sector institutions have the same compliance requirements - some will require strict FedRAMP controls, where others have specific data security requirements. Oracle has done tremendous investments for data security across all solutions and these Cloud Platform services are no different. I also understand that Oracle is currently working to make all PaaS tools available in their government cloud data centers.

Can we try Oracle Documents Cloud Service today?

Yes. You can start your free trial of Oracle Documents Cloud Service today. Simply go to https://cloud.oracle.com/documents to register for the free trial.

Oracle Launches Oracle BPM & Oracle WebCenter 12.2.1

Oracle, the immense yet nimble giant that it is, launched a whole slew of innovation at this Oracle Open World. One such is the updates with the on-premise Oracle BPM and Oracle WebCenter Suites. I have summarized the gist of this big release here, also you can dive into our press release for a quick overview.

Press Release: Oracle Fusion Middleware Enables Organizations to Innovate and Consolidate On-Premises and in the Cloud

Oracle WebCenter

This release provides a refreshingly new user experience that is cohesive, responsive and device friendly across Oracle WebCenter Sites, Oracle WebCenter Portal and Oracle WebCenter Content and Oracle BPM Suite. Oracle WebCenter Portal has a modern and responsive UI, and a refreshed composer that eases page composition. This release also delivers on wizard driven data integration and out of the box custom visualization, new content management leveraging embedded UI from WebCenter Content and full access to enterprise content management.

Oracle WebCenter Sites now has a composite visitor profile across multiple profile data sources and delivers on A/B testing. It now provides marketing cloud integration with anonymous personalization thru Bluekai, Eloqua forms integration for lead-generation and Eloqua profile integration for personalization. In addition enhanced marketing insight delivers in-context analytics on pages and assets, allows setting conversion events in-context of page and anonymous user tracking.

Oracle WebCenter Content has released modern, embeddable UIs for content and process. It includes a new WebCenter Content Viewer for Imaging with annotation and redaction. This release now has a hybrid ECM integration between WebCenter Content and Document Cloud Service. Lastly, users can now leverage reduced complexity in the infrastructure as Imaging Server is merged into WebCenter Content. 

Oracle BPM Suite

We are excited to announce the new functionality coming from Oracle BPM Suite in this new release which includes modernization of the user interfaces to make it more streamlined to improve workforce productivity. This new release includes a full set of REST API that enable applications built with any technology to leverage BPM Suite as an engine for workflow management, service integration, and process orchestration. This model is particularly well suited when custom mobile apps need a process engine that offers full BPMN and Adaptive Case Management capabilities, and that delivers BAM dashboards to enable control, management, and continuous improvement of processes. 

Oracle BPM Suite now has the capacity for easier creation of hybrid applications to cross over between Oracle Process Cloud Service and Oracle BPM Suite. This reduces time to market and cost by moving new process initiatives to the cloud. Process Cloud Service can be leveraged for pilots and testing before bringing it on-premise for production. In addition line of business can now create applications on Oracle Process Cloud Service which can be brought to on-premise when the functionality reaches a state of sophistication that requires higher levels of IT commitment.

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:
