Last month at Oracle OpenWorld 2012, five groundbreaking organizations using Oracle WebCenter won Oracle Fusion Middleware Innovation Awards, which honor customers and partners that are using Oracle solutions in innovative ways to successfully drive business value.

Oracle WebCenter winners include the University of Louisville, Australian media company News Limited, California-based biotech leader Life Technologies, Chinese telecomm provider China Mobile Jiangsu, and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.

University of Louisville
The University of Louisville turned to Oracle WebCenter solutions—including Oracle WebCenter Portal and Oracle WebCenter Content —to build a platform for the Louisville Informatics Institute (LOUI) initiative. LOUI is a statewide informatics network designed to improve public healthcare and lower cost with next-generation analytics, decision support, and innovative outcomes-based payment systems.

It is estimated that the LOUI project will produce an annualized return on investment of 277 percent, thanks to avoidance of hospitalizations, more timely intervention, improved patient compliance, and an outcomes-based reimbursement model.

News Limited
The world of online news is highly competitive, and Australia's News Limited wanted to stay on the cutting edge with an engaging online experience. To do so, it implemented a shared platform powered by Oracle WebCenter Sites, that has helped the company beat out its nearest competitor and take the lead in page impressions per month.

To achieve this, News Limited relied on the Oracle technology to reimagine storytelling and create a solution that is not only faster in terms of editorial publishing activity—known as speed to screen—but that also drives quality stories through content wizards and proprietary algorithms, allowing nontechnical editors to utilize rapid publishing capabilities.

Life Technologies
A global biotechnology tools company operating in more than 160 countries, Life Technologies was honored for a highly innovative solution for remotely monitoring and repairing biotech instruments.

The first of its kind in the industry, the new Instruments and Services Portal—built using Oracle WebCenter Portal—provides access to a cloud-based service monitoring system where all customer-deployed instruments can be remotely monitored and proactively repaired. The portal also provides alerts to customers and Life Technologies field engineers. 

China Mobile Jiangsu
China Mobile Jiangsu is one of the biggest subsidiaries of China Mobile, with more than 25,000 employees and some 40 million mobile subscribers. China Mobile Jiangsu won its innovation award for a new employee portal platform powered by Oracle WebCenter Portal that is successfully driving collaboration and productivity across its 25,000-strong workforce.

The solution brings together rich collaboration services, knowledge management services, sensitive document protection services, unified user identity management services, unified information search services, and personalized information integration capabilities.

Los Angeles Department of Water and Power
The largest public utility company in the United States with more than 1.6 million customers, Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) provides water and power for millions of residential and commercial customers in Southern California.

LADWP was honored for implementing a newly designed Web portal that makes navigation easy with Web browsers and mobile applications. This has resulted in significant increases in self-service transactions, from billing and usage analysis to changes in service and outage reporting.
