Content-Enabling Your Insurance Business Using Oracle BPM and WebCenter Content
By Lance Shaw on Feb 24, 2014
Hello everyone. Today we are featuring a guest blog post from Raoul Miller at TeamInformatics. TeamInformatics is a leading provider of consulting and implementation services for Oracle WebCenter and has recently published an informative whitepaper on the value of integrating WebCenter Content with our BPM technologies to deliver more cost-effective business processes.

TEAM has worked with a number of insurance industry companies over the years and the advantages of content-enabling these enterprises are numerous. Many insurance organizations have grown through acquisition, with the end result that they have parallel legacy systems in place with increasingly evolving complexity in meeting the challenges of integrating them. This makes the insurance industry ideal for deployment of SOA/BPM as an integration methodology and adding content and records management to this is a no-brainer (as the insurance industry is so document and record-driven).
Last year Oracle published a white paper (link) on how best to use their BPM (business process management) tools in an insurance industry setting. I won’t restate all their reasons as to why the Oracle solution is a good fit – but suffice to say that the Oracle Insurance business unit has a lot of experience in the area and solutions to meet all your needs. However, what was missing from the white paper was the value and flexibility gained by adding WebCenter Content, Records, and Imaging to the mix.
We are currently working with a number of customers on exactly these integrations – allowing for secure upload of files from agents’ offices, scanning and uploading of paper forms and documents (using capture and distributed capture), migrating legacy images from mainframe systems to modern Oracle WebCenter Content systems, and allowing users (for the first time) to truly search and retrieve content based on metadata and full text searches. TEAM’s Enterprise Architect, Raoul Miller, has produced a whitepaper that contains two case studies where SOA/BPM and WebCenter content enable businesses with these processes.
