Yes, Oracle Documents Cloud Service is an enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) solution. Yes, it is in the cloud as you would expect from a modern day EFSS solution. And yes, it is easy and intuitive to use with out-of-the-box mobile accessibility with the added security that you would expect from an Oracle solution. But why do we keep insisting it is more than just an EFSS or file sharing solution? Because beyond just providing cloud storage and 24/7 access and share and sync capabilities and mobile access, Documents Cloud mobilizes your enterprise content. Unlike first-generation EFSS solutions, it doesn't create new information silo's and instead allows you to drive the content connected to your applications, to your business processes or to your source of record (like an enterprise content management system that is on premise) and make it available anywhere, for sharing and for collaboration.
Here's a quick look at how it may make your work life that much easier, more productive, much more efficient and perhaps even, fun?

The benefits of an effective and comprehensive cloud file sharing and collaboration solution are quite obvious - you have access to documents you need to be productive anytime, anywhere and on any device; remote employees and employees on the go are empowered; team collaboration and doing projects either among the employees or with outside contractors and suppliers is vastly simplified; when delivered securely and in context, the solution drive work efficiency, employee satisfaction and even improves time to market, and so on.
But what does it mean for IT? Less governance and information silo's to deal with; more efficient provisioning; automatic updates and almost zero maintenance; more self service and less administrative overhead; streamlined infrastructure and better governance. Here's what Oracle CIO and SVP, Mark Sunday has to say about driving IT transformation with Oracle Documents Cloud Service.
And why Oracle Documents Cloud Service needs to be an ubiquitous solution for any organization.

Information Officer has to say about cloud based Enterprise File Sync and Share
by: Vikas Saini, Enterprise Architect, Digital Experience and Mobile, Oracle
With the release of the latest
features in Oracle Documents Cloud Service last month, Oracle has taken a giant
leap forward in the file sync and content collaboration space, especially as it
relates to business content sharing use cases.
Since it was first commercially made
available in October 2014, Oracle Documents Cloud Service (OracleDOCS) has continued to
add new features to its offering and is slowing becoming the industry leader in
Among the many new capabilities, one
that stands out most is the integration with Oracle Mobile Security Suite for
the advanced security and control features. Now businesses can use this service
to boost productivity while still providing the necessary controls that IT
Here are five key reasons why you
should seriously look at Oracle Documents Cloud Service for your enterprise file
sync and content collaboration needs.
Improved User Experience: The solution has added many new usability features to
make it easier for users to review content, especially for the mobile
apps. There is now a mobile Presenter that allows users to view many
different file format without the need for 3rd party viewer. iPad users can now present curated content for a visually stunning impact. For iOS, the
mobile app now supports Touch ID. Furthermore, if the users are using an
Android phone, they can use the Android office applications to edit
certain file formats stored in OracleDOCS directly.
Advanced Security Capabilities: The new superior security capabilities are probably
one of the most important features of the new release, in my opinion.
Administrators can now mandate virus scanning for all files that are
uploaded. Integration with Oracle Mobile Security Suite allows mobile users to have OracleDOCS as part of mobile apps with added security features. This ensures that the content files can be made
available offline on the mobile app and are fully encrypted. Oracle Mobile
Security Suite also supports encryption of information during transit.
Integration with other Cloud and On-Premise solutions: Documents Cloud Service supports REST APIs that can be
used for accessing its features. The solution also provides an embeddable
file picker for use with other applications. A sample integration between
Siebel CRM and OracleDOCS is shown here. As more features become available via
the REST API and the product integration capabilities become more mature,
it will allow for various applications to integrate with OracleDOCS even more
easily than what it is today (which is fairly comprehensive, btw).
Built on Oracle Infrastructure: The fact that the solution is deployed on Oracle Cloud
platform, ensures that not only will it be a reliable service for
mission-critical requirements but also provide the security and performance
that the users expect from such a solution.
Betting on Oracle’s Cloud Vision: Lastly, in recent times the cloud platform has become
a strategic focus for Oracle and already its services are providing
improved productivity for many corporate users. Since, one of the goals
for Oracle is to ensure that these services are integrated with each other
wherever it makes sense, the customers will get added benefits from not
having to spend resources on silo-ed solutions. In addition, Oracle has
been a leader with the on-premise Enterprise Content Management Platform
solution and can bring the years of experience from that to improve the
OracleDOCS solution much quicker than the competitors.
A key part of Oracle’s strategy moving forward is its focus on the Oracle Cloud
Platform. The big advantage that the company has over its competitors is the
holistic solution it can provide across a company's complete IT architecture,
given its vast portfolio of products. In a short span, the company has released
solutions for software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and
Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). It recently announced the launch of about
24 more services including Oracle Mobile Cloud, Oracle Integration Cloud and
Oracle Process Cloud.
In addition, given the tremendous
success of Oracle's on-premise Enterprise Content Management Platform over past many
years, it is probably safe to assume that the product management understands
the space very well and knows the key features that businesses are looking for in a cloud collaboration solution.
For business users, Oracle Documents
Cloud is a great service as it provides capabilities for content collaboration
and privacy control. I believe that Oracle will continue to make great strides
in the space by adding new and innovative features to this service and will
soon be a leader of the next generation of Enterprise Content Management (ECM)
in the cloud.
