Oracle WebCenter: The Integrated Leader

As we talk about leadership this week, it’s impressive to see Oracle WebCenter as a leader, not just in Enterprise Content Management, but also in Horizontal Portals and in Web Content Management. It really points to how Oracle WebCenter is the leading platform for user engagement.

It’s hard for any of the vendors to match the investment that Oracle has made in this space. The WebCenter products are integrated with Oracle Fusion Middleware, providing an easy development environment, great management tools, and a consistent methodology. Customers are able to leverage their other IT investments and skillsets to run WebCenter.

WebCenter is also integrated with Oracle hardware. Oracle SuperCluster offers an optimized solution with Oracle WebCenter Content pre-loaded. Oracle Optimized Solution for Oracle WebCenter Content on SPARC SuperCluster is a screaming high-performance content management solution can ingest over 270 million documents per day and can perform over 370 million searches per day. Let us know if that’s not enough for you, we can always expand it because it scales horizontally.

Oracle WebCenter is also integrated out-of-the-box with key enterprise applications. Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, Siebel, JD Edwards and Oracle Fusion Applications integrations make it easy to present content in those applications, or to create mashups for specific tasks, where you can bring 2 or more applications together on the same screen or with relevant content to drive faster business processes.

This investment over the past three years is paying off. Customers are looking for solutions that can benefit their bottom line today. And the lowered costs and improved productivity show immediately. Customers cut costs of business processes (like invoice processing, where we have seen up to 90% savings) and storage costs (where we have seen 75% savings by consolidating content), but they also see productivity go up. The result is people can find the content they need without having to wade through irrelevant and out-of-date content, so they can make better decisions faster.

Oracle WebCenter Named a Leader in Enterprise Content Management by Independent Research Firm

Oracle has been named a Leader in the November 2011 report, “The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Content Management, Q4 2011.” Based on Forrester’s assessment, Oracle WebCenter received high marks due to its broad set of capabilities for managing foundational, business, transactional and persuasive content types. According to the report, “Oracle ranks as Leader in all content technology segments due to its broad set of capabilities.”

The report continued, “Oracle WebCenter, which includes Oracle’s new portal platform, weaves ECM into the fabric of the portal application. By integrating ECM into the Oracle WebCenter portfolio, Oracle’s ECM functionality provides the foundation for many content-centric business solutions, such as contract management or team collaboration. The Oracle WebCenter portfolio is made available to all of the core Oracle products, thus providing ECM functionality to other Oracle products, such as Siebel or PeopleSoft. Oracle’s ability to surface ECM functionality in Oracle WebCenter provides organizations with the ability to implement an enterprise portal with extensive ECM capabilities.”

“Many organizations are faced with a difficult balancing act as they try to address increasingly complex content management issues while meeting the demands from information workers for simple and easy to use content management tools,” said Andy MacMillan, vice president, Product Management, Oracle. “We believe that Forrester Research’s recognition of Oracle as a Leader highlights our commitment to delivering a complete and unified portfolio of tools that help our customers address these challenges by seamlessly connecting people and information.”
