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.”

Does your organization have a social media strategy in place that enables you to respond in real-time, have rich agent-agent conversation to drive interactive idea generation and quickly access history of conversations from CRM?

We invite you to view this demonstration as we show how Oracle WebCenter connect Conversations can integrate with Oracle Siebel CRM and together provide exception levels of customer service.

Collaborate 2010: Spotlight on Oracle Content Management

Excitement is building for the Collaborate conference April 18th through the 22nd. Outside of the event being in Las Vegas, which for me often seems to add to the excitement, there will be a great lineup of Oracle Content Management focused sessions. In fact, there are currently over 30 content management sessions scheduled, and attendees will get to hear from customers, partners, as well as Oracle experts.

Attendees should expect to hear a lot about Oracle Content Management 11g at Collaborate 2010. Roel Stalman and Andy MacMillan will kick off these discussions on Monday, April 19th as they present Oracle Content Management's product strategy and roadmap (10:45 - 11:45). Monday's lineup also includes sessions on Oracle Imaging and Process Management (I/PM) 11g and Oracle Forms Recognition (2:30 - 3:30), which were both released in January. For those customers using older versions of I/PM or Stellent IBPM, be sure not to miss the "migrating to I/PM 11g" session on Monday as well (1:15 - 2:15) as this should give you some insight into the migration process.

Check out the entire list of Oracle Content Management sessions here.

Another focus at Collaborate this year is to discuss the benefits of using Oracle Content Management with Oracle Applications - Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, and Siebel - so be sure to check out these sessions too:

  • Accelerating Accounts Payable Processes with Integrated Document Imaging
    (Monday, April 19th, 3:45 - 4:45)

  • Supercharge Your Siebel Sales and Marketing with Integrated Document Management
    (Tuesday, April 20th, 2:00 - 3:00)

  • Oracle Enterprise 2.0 for Oracle Applications: The Value of an Integrated E2.0 Platform
    (Tuesday, April 20th, 3:15 - 4:15)

  • Comprehensive Human Resources Automation with Oracle Content Management
    (Wednesday, April 21st, 1:00 - 2:00)

Collaborate is also the perfect opportunity to meet Oracle executives and product experts. Attendees can sign up for 1 on 1 meetings at the event, and there will be someone representing each Oracle Content Management product. These meetings are probably the best way to get your product questions answered in a face-to-face manner.

It seems more and more to me that Oracle Content Management customers are viewing Collaborate as "the" conference to attend each year. I hope you have plans to attend and I will see you there.


Oracle WebCenter is the center of engagement for business—powering exceptional experiences for customers, partners, and employees. It connects people, process, and information with the most complete portfolio of portal, Web experience management, content, imaging and collaboration technologies.
