E2.0 Top 20 #18: Are enterprise content management and business process management converging towards a more adaptive and dynamic approach to knowledge work?

As Oracle Enterprise Content Management and Oracle BPM both belong to the Oracle Fusion Middleware family - the convergence layer for existing and future Fusion applications and services - they can be easily integrated simply assembling services together without writing any additional code. Oracle Application Development Framework enables rapid application development through composition instead of coding, lowering the barriers for an enterprise to make changes. Learn more!
