CIO Review: The Future of Content is NOW

By this time, we are all bought into the value that a Cloud infrastructure brings. So, if you are in Information Technology (IT), you are looking to best leverage a single, centralized Cloud platform to meet your needs. As you think through your Cloud investments, consider an iterative approach where you start off looking for the biggest bang for your money and an initiative that earns you instant results (and credibility) with the various lines of businesses.

I recently wrote a feature for the CIO Review publication in which I  explored how a Cloud content hub would create value for both IT and the different lines of businesses. In it, I also shared an example of one of our customers, Omni Financiera to discuss how they are choosing to get immediate value from their Cloud investments. Take a read and see if this could be your next step in the Cloud. As always, I would welcome an open dialog and look forward to hearing from you on your thoughts.

Hope you enjoy the feature.

Enabling the Mobile Workforce with Cloud Content and Experience - Part 3

Author: Mark Paterson, Director, Oracle Documents Cloud Service Product Management

Continuing my series on quick tips on how to use key features of our apps to drive effective mobile collaboration (part 1 and part 2 of the series noted), I’d like to quickly cover how easy it is to review videos and audio flies. For a quick refresher, Oracle Documents Cloud Service is an enterprise-grade content and social collaboration cloud solution that allows you to work and drive decisions with your content and your ecosystem anytime, anywhere and on any device.

Need to review or approve a new video on the move? Oracle Documents Cloud Service provides full support for videos right within our mobile app.

  1. Install the Oracle Documents apps on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device, log on to Oracle Documents Cloud Service, and you’re ready to go. Use it anywhere. It’s designed to be familiar, swiping to navigate and tapping to open folders and files. The app guides you through what to do.

  2. Watching a video stored in Oracle Documents is easy. Launch Oracle Documents, browse to the folder where your video is stored and tap on it, and then tap on Play. That’s it, your video will start playing immediately, no need to wait for it to fully download, everything is streamed.

If you need to play an audio file you can follow the same steps, no 3rd party player required.

Check out our latest "how-to" video to see it in action.

You can always find the Oracle Documents mobile apps in the App stores.

Short and sweet this time round, next time we’ll explore changes we’ve made that make it super simple to upload all the great assets you create on your mobile device into Oracle Documents Cloud.

Enabling the Mobile Workforce with Cloud Content and Experience - Part 2

Author: Mark Paterson, Director, Oracle Documents Cloud Service Product Management

Hope you are finding this series on quick tips on how to use key features of Oracle Documents Cloud Service mobile app to drive effective mobile collaboration helpful. In my first post, we covered steps to do mobile editing on files. In this post, we are covering the latest updates in Oracle Documents Cloud Service (Oracle Documents) that make it super simple to upload all the great assets you create or have on your mobile devices directly into Oracle Documents.

Need a way to get files, photos, or videos stored within Oracle Documents while on the move? Oracle Documents Cloud Service’s mobile app has been enhanced to further simplify file uploads.

  1. If you haven’t already, start off by installing Oracle Documents mobile app on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device. Log on to Oracle Documents Cloud Service and you’re ready to go - use it anywhere, anytime and from any of your mobile devices. It’s designed to be intuitive, familiar to your mobile habits - swipe to navigate and tap to open folders and files. The app guides you through what to do.

  2. Mobile devices make it super easy to take pictures and record videos so it makes sense to upload them to Oracle Documents directly from your mobile device as well. You can open an app like the Photos app and initiate the upload right from there.

  3. For example, you can share an entire moment with Oracle Documents. Find the moment you need to upload and simply tap on “Share”, and then select “Share this moment”. You can then select “Oracle Documents” from the list of apps. You can pick the account and folder where you wish to store the photos, even update filenames or provide file descriptions, then tap “Upload” and they all get uploaded in one go.


  4. You can initiate a similar flow from within Oracle Documents. Find the folder where you want to store your assets and tap on “+” and choose Upload “Media” or “Files”. From here, you can gather a set of files to upload:
    i.
    Tap on the camera icon to take a picture or to select photos to upload
    ii.
    Tap on the microphone icon to record a voice note
    iii.
    Tap on the file upload icon to select files from other 3rd party applications

  5. Once you have your list of files you can update file names or provide file descriptions as needed and when you are ready tap on “Add” and they all get uploaded into your folder.

  6. If you are an Android user, the same Upload flows are available. You can, for example, initiate photo uploads right from within Google Photos

Check out our latest "How To" video to see it in action:

You can always find the Oracle Documents mobile apps in the App stores.


Now that you know how easy is to store them in Oracle Documents, keep on taking those photos and recording those videos, In my next post I am going move away from more traditional content subjects and talks about sites and a new feature we’ve added to make easier for you as a mobile user to access your sites right from our apps.

Easing into the Cloud for Oracle WebCenter Investments

Author: Marcus Diaz, Senior Principal Product Manager, Oracle

For customers who have invested in traditional on-premise deployments of IT applications to support their business objectives, the growing trend and push to the cloud can often appear to be a daunting challenge. But the good news is that it is not an “all or nothing” proposition when you consider taking a hybrid approach as you step towards cloud adoption. As Figure 1 shows below, 71% of customers below are taking a hybrid cloud approach which includes the use of an conventional on-premise IT application in conjunction with some form of cloud technology.

Figure 1: Hybrid Cloud Adoption

Lift and Shift is a term that is being used quite a bit these days in talking about the push to the cloud by various cloud vendors. While exact definitions vary, we at Oracle use this term to mean copying (or cloning) an on-premises implementation of Oracle WebCenter Content, Imaging, Portal or Sites environment into Oracle’s public cloud offerings. The targets for these environments could be either Oracle’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Compute cloud or Oracle’s Java Cloud Service (JCS).

All of the current 12c releases of the WebCenter product family (Content, Imaging, Capture, Portal & Sites) are certified to run in these Oracle cloud environments.

Oracle’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Compute cloud environment is a cloud based virtualization service for deploying your applications. You get a virtualized operating system environment with a number of pre-allocated CPU cores (Oracle calls them OCPU’s) and storage running on Oracle cloud infrastructure. As an administrator, you would do all the same things that you would have done to install the Oracle WebCenter Stack into your own hardware but instead you do it remotely using a secure connection to your Oracle cloud environment.

Oracle’s Java Cloud Service (JCS) cloud environments are similar to IaaS/Compute cloud with one big difference: JCS comes with a pre-provisioned Oracle WebLogic Application Server. You still get a virtualized operating system environment with an number of pre-allocated CPU cores but instead of starting the application installation process at the operating system level – you start with an already running WLS server and only need to install the middleware applications. The additional benefits of the JCS environment are that the WLS application server functions like monitoring, backup, update & scale out are integrated into the JCS cloud administration console functions.

When you lift and shift your WebCenter on-premise applications to the cloud – these cloud instances can be used for testing, development, or production environments. For production environments, the high availability standard reference architectures that the WebCenter products document & support for clustering and load balancing are supported as well. Figure 2 below the Oracle WebCenter Content & Imaging reference high availability architecture.

Figure 2: Oracle WebCenter Content & Imaging Reference HA architecture

From a licensing perspective, it’s a case of Bring Your Own License (BYOL) , meaning you can re-allocate your existing on-premise perpetual processor licenses that you already own and re-deploy them on Oracle’s cloud infrastructure instead of your own hardware. What you pay for is a subscription cost for the virtual cloud CPU’s & storage that you use in the Oracle cloud. You can pay as you go (metered subscription) for the resources you use or you can prepay (non-metered) for a fixed set of cloud resources.

In summary, with the availability of “lift-n-shift” support in Oracle’s compute cloud environments you’ve now got the best of both worlds – the flexibility of the Oracle cloud for scaling and off-loading your infrastructure costs while continuing to be able to use your existing WebCenter product family investments and the applications you’ve built around them.

To get started, connect with us via your Oracle WebCenter account representative or your Oracle point of contact. We will drive strategy sessions to work on a roadmap that works best for your short- and long-term needs. And, get the best of both worlds - leveraging your existing investments and benefits of the Cloud.

We know you have questions so please do reach out to us via the comments section or through your point of contact. For more information on our Content and Experience cloud portfolio, visit us at oracle.com/dx.

Enabling the Mobile Workforce with Content and Experience - Part 1

Author: Mark Paterson, Director, Oracle Documents Cloud Service Product Management

I think we can all agree that mobile is transforming every facet of modern society. Along with this powerful trend, Cloud is transforming every facet of the IT infrastructure. Companies are finding that with the changing digital landscape, our expectations have changed, not just as a consumer but as an employee too. The pervasiveness of digital technology and the convenience of it has permeated into our work world, making business users more technology savvy, expecting digital convenience in the workplace as well. As such, more and more users are relying on their mobile smartphones and tablets to continue working outside of the office.

So, in a world where work is no longer dictated by location and spans not just geography but our ecosystem – employees, partners, suppliers and customers, as well as channels – web, mobile, social, how can you empower your users to drive effective mobile collaboration?

With our brand new Oracle Documents Cloud Service mobile apps for iOS and Android mobile devices, you can perform pretty much all of the rich content collaboration functions you’d expect and more, right from the mobile apps.

If you are an existing Oracle Documents Cloud Service user, you will find that all our client applications have had a user interface upgrade, where ease of navigation and contextual actions have been given highest priority. New users would find navigation and the intuitive interface refreshing.

The new release is also fully integrated with the Oracle Social Network so we now have conversations and people as first class citizens in the app meaning:

Users can create standalone conversations without associating it with files or folders

Users can browse people’s profiles, follow them and send each other direct messages

Members can flag people on conversations, threads and action items, and turn on notifications

Comprehensive search across people, documents and conversations

So, the new mobile apps allow you to fully interact with your content and ecosystem - driving a full-fledged communication platform.

I will be doing a complete blog series so that, together, we can look at some of the key mobile collaboration and engagement features in detail. I will be sharing some quick tips on how to use key features of our apps that help drive effective mobile work. The objective of this series is to allow you to take full advantage of the advanced mobile features of Oracle Documents Cloud Series. In fact, if there are specific features or action where you'd like me to focus, please let me know via comments and I will be sure to add that to the series.Where possible, we have provided brief "How to" videos to offer visual guidance.

The first key feature when you are dealing with content is being able to actually edit content anywhere at any time and on any device. And that is what I will focus the rest of today's post on.

If you are working on your mobile device, editing content is easy since Oracle Documents Cloud Service provides full support for Microsoft Office 365 for mobile. As a result, it is just as easy to edit files from your mobile device as it is from your desktop:

  1. Install both the Microsoft Office 365 apps and Oracle Documents apps on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device, then log on to Office 365 and Oracle Documents Cloud Service, and you’re ready to go. Use it anywhere. The key design feature we focused on here is - familiarity. You will find accessing content on Documents Cloud fairly intuitive and familiar to your mobile habits - swiping to navigate and tapping to open folders and files. The app guides you through what to do.

  2. Editing a file stored in Oracle Documents is easy. Launch a Microsoft Office 365 app such as Word, tap on ‘Open’ and from there you can access multiple locations by tapping on ‘… More’, and then ‘Locations’ and Oracle Document is listed as an available location (if this is the first time, you may need to tap on ‘More’ to enable Oracle Documents as a supported location to store files, from this same screen you can drag Oracle Documents to the top of the list so it appears as the first location).

  3. After tapping on Oracle Documents, you can pick the Oracle Documents account you wish to access and browse through all your folders find the file you wish to edit.


  4. Your file will open in Word and you can begin editing. By default, the Mobile Office 365 apps uses "Auto Save" so all your changes will be saved back to Oracle Documents automatically.

  5. You can also start working on brand new documents in any of the Mobile Office 365 apps and use the "Save As" feature. The same locations accessible through "… More" when you did the Open can also be accessed when you are doing a Save so it is easy to pick a folder in Oracle Documents to store your new creation.

  6. If you are an Android user, both Mobile Office 365 on Android and Oracle Documents Cloud Service support the Android Storage Access Framework which allows for the same type of editing flows.

Check out our latest video for step-by-step visual directions on the steps listed above:

You can always find the Oracle Documents Cloud Service mobile apps in the App stores. For those who don't have Oracle Documents Cloud Service as yet, a free trial is available from cloud.oracle.com/documents  to get you started.

Hope you found this useful, next time I will cover how easy it is to review videos and audio files.

When Social Meets Content to Drive Meaningful Collaboration

Author: Marc-Andre Houle, Principal Product Director, Content and Experience Product Management, Oracle

You’ll often hear people say that effective collaboration starts with effective communication. Unfortunately, the most common way for enterprise people to communicate is through traditional email, which is far from effective. Email works well for simple communication, but not for lengthy discussions, and certainly not for group collaboration. That’s not to say email is bad or that it’s going away, but it does mean that enterprise workers are looking for a more effective way to collaborate without relying solely on email.

So, within Oracle Documents Cloud Service, we introduced our solution to the collaboration problem. By providing social collaboration features built directly into our powerful content platform, we’re providing the tools for people to collaborate and communicate more effectively without ever leaving the context of their collaboration, both within our application and in the sites and experiences that people build using our tools.

The first time you view a document in our application, whether in our Web client or in our mobile applications, you’ll notice the presence of a conversation icon. That lets you start a new conversation in the context of that document. Everyone who can collaborate on that document can also collaborate in the conversation. You can add annotations, post messages, reply to messages, and like people’s posts. When you want to draw someone’s attention to a specific post, you can flag that person on a message and a notification will get sent to them either by email, mobile notification, or as a desktop pop-up alert.


As people start to collaborate with you in conversations, you’ll want to see where those posts are being made and where people are collaborating with you. From the left-hand navigation pane, you can click on the “Conversations” tab to show you your list of conversations. That will include conversations related to files and folders, as well as stand-alone conversations and one-on-one conversations you may have with another person. There is an icon on each conversation to show the number of unread messages in that conversation, so you can see where you might need to catch up. And it’s possible to expand each row (or all rows, if you want) to show the most recent post that was made to a conversation. Because the list is sorted by recent activity, you can see new posts as they are posted, in real-time.

One common problem that people face is not knowing when there is an important update on one of their conversations when they’re not active in the user interface. You can configure to receive email notifications but, as I mentioned earlier, email isn’t always the best way to collaborate. However, people who have Oracle Documents Cloud Desktop Sync Client installed will receive pop-up alerts on their desktop for important activity taking place in their folders and files in Documents Cloud Service. Each person can configure what types of activity will trigger pop-up alerts. For example, you can get pop-up alerts for all the posts to all your favorite conversations or only get notifications for urgent flags that require a reply.

With our mobile-first strategy, our social features are completely integrated with our content features on all the platforms we support. That means you can collaborate anywhere and anytime, even when you’re not in the office or not sitting at your desktop. Oracle Documents Cloud Service apps are available off of the Apple App Store and Google Play today.

Of course, what we’re offering is more than just a set of social features; our social capabilities are part of a broader social platform that people can use to build their own custom sites and experiences. Our social features and UI are fully embeddable in sites and applications that people build themselves and the full set of social capabilities are also exposed in our REST APIs. 

Don’t have Oracle Documents Cloud Service yet? Then, I highly recommend getting started with a free trial version available at cloud.oracle.com/documents to see how you can now drive content and social collaboration anytime, anywhere and on any device.

#OOW16 - Why You Should Attend: Content Management in the Cloud: Strategy & Roadmap (CON7527)?

How do you optimize the complete content management lifecycle – from collaboration around content creation especially on mobile, content upkeep to omni-channel content delivery and drive analytics around content usage and interaction?

Content Management in the Cloud: Strategy and Roadmap [CON7257]
Monday, September 19, 12:30 pm
Moscone West—2014

You will hear about Oracle’s strategy, roadmap and vision on how to drive an integrated content management experience in the Cloud. In an always-on world, learn how you can stay connected and collaborate real time, even on mobile devices. Find out how mobile collaboration should go beyond file sync and share and drive social-based engagement. You will hear about a content strategy that doesn’t create content silos but bridges the gap between your existing content management system and your ecosystem.

Previous generations of content management were tightly coupled to a specific channel. For instance, Web Content Management Systems were meant only to support the Web. Learn how Oracle’s flagship cloud solution for content and social collaboration, Oracle Documents Cloud Service is providing you a single platform to drive content across the different channels and in context of your applications. Hear first-hand about the product innovations being delivered to simplify work and decision making processes, drive social and mobile engagement, and deliver application extensions. Organizations using Oracle Marketing Cloud, Oracle Service Cloud, Oracle Sales Cloud or those using on-premises applications like Oracle JD Edwards and Siebel would benefit from learning about the integration use case between the applications and Oracle Documents Cloud Service.

And, don’t miss the live mobile demos of the solution that showcase real-life use cases to leverage in your organization. Product experts will be at hand to answer your questions and discuss best practices.

And most importantly, join this session to hear from one of your peers, Edi Nilson Piovezani, Director Infrastructure, from Omni Financiera in Brazil who would be sharing his content management journey to the Cloud. Omni uses Oracle Documents Cloud Services to store customer documents used in the credit request process, managed by WebCenter Content. A customized portal allows the 10,000 credit agents easily submit the documents for credit analysis. Existing WebCenter and on-premise content management system stakeholders may particularly find this use case insightful.

Experience It to Believe It! It's LIVE!!!

By now you have heard a lot of talk about the benefits and features of leveraging cloud services. But before you commit you need to TRY IT – RIGHT? Well, here’s your CHANCE! Starting today and all the way to Oracle OpenWorld 2016 (OOW16), you will get a chance to experience our cloud services in action.

We’ve designed a unique and tailored experience just for our attendees at OOW16 - the Oracle OpenWorld Content and Experience Management website! This site is built completely on Oracle’s content management solution – Oracle Sites Cloud Service and Oracle Documents Cloud Service. Take a look!


So consider this … no more fumbling through printed materials, no more trying to find when or where the next session is or where the demogrounds are located? At this year’s Oracle OpenWorld, you’ll have a much more simplified and engaging experience, from any device – web, phone, tablet!

The Oracle OpenWorld Content and Experience site is the ONLY link you will need to keep tabs on all things Digital Experience at Oracle OpenWorld 2016 (OOW16). You will find information on the upcoming sessions, the day’s agenda, ready information on Hands-on-Labs, Demo locations and hours, and more. Live twitter feed and pictures will allow you to experience the conference in real time. The site is mobile-first so you can enjoy a rich, dynamic mobile experience.

They say … you have to experience it to believe it, with #OOW16 here’s your chance.

https://sites.oracle.com/oowdx

We designed this site just for you! We did our best to create a tailored conference experience and also show off a few of the capabilities available to all customers using Oracle Documents and Sites Cloud service. From dynamic components like “Latest Sessions” and live twitter feeds, to picking up session content and documents, Oracle users built this site in record 3 days and that’s with multiple stakeholders involved. Says Sudhir Dureja from Oracle Enterprise Operations, “Once we sketched what the site components would be, it was simply a matter of leveraging pre-built templates and dragging and dropping components into the site. Site building was the shortest step in the process. In fact, it is so straight forward that our marketing colleague was directly dropping in and placing the content she wanted on the site.”

What’s more, because it is so incredibly simple, you will find new components being added to the website over the next few days. So, keep this link handy on your mobile/web browser:

https://sites.oracle.com/oowdx

and experience the digital site built for users, by users.

psst … one more thing … Not to ruin the surprise but once on the site you’ll not only stay connected, get all the relevant information you need but you may also be “rewarded” at #OOW16 if you stay tuned!!! Let’s just say there are mobile beacons involved! So what are you waiting for?

Enough Cloud Talk, Time to #OracleDX

Get connected, tweet along, and see you at #OOW16!

Inside the OOW Session: Content and Experience Management: Roadmap and Vision


Gearing up for Oracle OpenWorld 2016? As you prepare for the conference, we wanted to give you a run down of all that awaits you at Oracle OpenWorld (OOW). Our recent post provided an overview of all things Content and Experience Management at OOW16 so if you haven’t already done so, I do recommend bookmarking it. And, starting today, we will do a series of posts on what to expect from the must-attend sessions in content and experience management. Today we look at the main session:

Content and Experience Management: Roadmap and Vision [CON7256] 
David le Strat, Senior Director, Oracle
Monday, Sep 19, 11:00 a.m. | Moscone West—2014

In this session, you will hear Oracle executive, David le Strat discuss the key focus areas of investment and updates on the Oracle Cloud portfolio for Cloud and Experience Management, and how existing Oracle WebCenter customers can leverage the benefits of Cloud.  You will also get to see the solutions in action and explore use cases that are driving digital experiences in our customer organizations today.

Content and Experience Management is about driving the complete digital experience from mobile and social collaboration for content creation, reviews and decision making on content, to publication of the content across the multiple channels – web, social and mobile, and measuring results on the same. So why should you care? Here are three reasons why:

First, there is no doubt that we live in a mobile world today. In a world where we are expected to always be connected and need to make decisions rapidly, the best mobile collaboration experience means not just having access to all your content from your mobile devices but also enabling real time communication with teams and co-workers to build and review content. Mobile collaboration also implies being able to work the way you want to work – using mobile productivity suites like MS Office and aggregating information from back-end applications like CRM, HCM, ERP and others. Has your organization embraced mobile collaboration yet?

Second, content engagement for your ecosystem happens across multiple different channels – web, mobile, social. You need the right content strategy. Marketers, on average, spend a quarter of their budget on content and 70% of the content goes unused. To make content management and consumption more effective, a channel agnostic approach is required so that content creation, review and delivery can consistently happen across the different channels. Moreover, delivering insights on content usage and interaction is critical as it drives up the value of the content and improves the iterative content management process. What is your multi-channel content management strategy?

Third, while there is lot of focus on native mobile apps, mobile web delivers the largest share of mobile traffic. Mobile web is at the cusp of significant disruption. Customers, of course, expect engaging, interactive and content-rich sites but what if you could take advantage of native device capabilities right from your web site?
