The Defense Manpower Data Center milConnect website recently won the 2012 Excellence.gov Award for Excellence in the Workforce. Defense Manpower Data Center milConnect
is a centralized, online resource that provides military service members (active and retired) and
their families (over 42 million in total) quick access to their profile, health care enrollments,
benefits, and other military-related topics. An easy to use, safe and secure website, milConnect also provides service members with convenient access their personnel and
service-related information. The self-service website allow users to
quickly and easily find and, where applicable, update their
information in the Defense Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) and milConnect transmits information to and from one reliable source
safely and securely.
The Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) maintains the largest, most comprehensive central repository of personnel, manpower, casualty, pay, entitlement, personnel security, person identity and attributes, survey, testing, training, and financial data in the Department of Defense (DoD). This is one of the largest systems of record in the world. milConnect had the challenge of modernizing the user experience for over 42 million users. With records in over 22 applications and 25 interfaces in hundreds of existing systems, milConnect needed to reduce the complexity of multiple authentication sources as well as consolidating access to existing systems with sensitive information. It accomplished this using a service-orientated architecture, enterprise security and access and identity management for self-service access on a massive scale. By providing 24x7x365 secure access and handling over 5 million transactions daily, not only has milConnect, built on Oracle WebCenter, streamlined and improved the customer experience for military personnel and families. it has also done so while cutting costs, allowing self-service access, and promoting electronic government.
Congrats to Defense Manpower Data Center and milConnect!
Reflecting on Oracle OpenWorld last week, we are even more
excited about the direction and momentum of Oracle WebCenter. It was a great
chance to share more with customers about how Oracle WebCenter positioning and
new functionality which has folks even more enthusiastic.
We also got the opportunity to see some of our customers at
the CAB and hear about their successes and future plans with our products. At
lunch I got to speak with the College of American Pathology, Eaton, Rolls
Royce, Chick-Fil-A, J.M. Smucker Company, and Jacobs Engineering. CAP has done
a great accounts payable integration, and is starting to expand their
implementation to cover employee onboarding. Chick-Fil-A, with their partner
Team Informatics, has been working to incorporate a highly complex security and
authentication scheme across all sites and related content.This is to ensure bothemployees and related departments, as well as
franchisees, are able to access and update content while limiting access and
rights to restricted information.It’s a
very creative security solution that is entirely role-based, simplifying the
security model and eliminating the need to define and manage accounts.
Thank you to the customers who joined us in presentations
and provided video testimonials. McAfee provided some great insights in our
panel on implementing a social business. And Chick-Fil-A and University of
Texas A&M provided very different perspectives on implementing content
management. Medtronic, Chicago Public Schools, McAfee, Agilent, and BDO were
all able to record some great videos – we’ll see those rolling out on the
Oracle website in the next few weeks. You can see an on-the-fly video we did
with Agilent here.
Everyone was very engaged with Oracle WebCenter and the User Engagement Platform. We also had a great announcement of The Oracle Social Network by
Larry Ellison. Larry enjoys the product so much he did the demonstration
himself, showing all the ways people can connect and collaborate using this new
and innovative solution.

Consulting and WebCenter partner Onior they have streamlined the process in order to bring cases digitally to the
Judiciary Courts. Oracle WebCenter is the core solution for the storage

end-user experience, better performance, more stability and enhanced storage
capabilities. Openbaar Ministerie has replaced all content related legacy
systems and migrated all functionality successfully to the Oracle WebCenter.
This year there will be a migration of the current infrastructure to Atos
Origin, including using a dedicated Exadata machine for the storage of metadata of the filed Case content.
National Schneider National won HonorableMention for this WebCenter project, which is part of a much larger
program that transforms Schneider’s business processes and end to end
technology platform, providing consistency and simplicity of architecture,
reduction in long term costs, and improved usability of the solutions for both
internal and external users. Schenider provides two separate WebCenter Portal
solutions, one for Drivers and another shared by both Customers and Service
