A Clear Upgrade Path from Oracle WebCenter Interaction to Oracle WebCenter Portal


Upgrading From Oracle WebCenter Interaction to Oracle WebCenter Portal


Why Upgrade From Oracle WebCenter Interaction and Older Versions?

Over the past 10 years Oracle WebCenter Interaction (WCI) has gone through several iterations of its lifecycle.  Starting in 2003 as Plumtree Corporate Portal 5.0, it progressed to BEA’s Aqualogic User Interaction 6.1 (ALUI), then to WebCenter Interaction 10gR3 when Oracle purchased BEA.  In 2011, Oracle released its last major version of WCI as version 10gR4.  Oracle WebCenter Interaction is expected to enter into Extended Support as of January 2014 with no planned enhancements.  WCI is targeted to be “sunset”, and the strategic portal technology from Oracle is WebCenter Portal.

Adding Value to WFR 11g With the WFR AP Reporting Application



 Adding Value to WFR 11g With the WFR AP Reporting Application

By: Karla Broadrick | Developer

Oracle WebCenter Forms Recognition is a powerful tool in an AP solution, providing automated invoice extraction.  WFR intelligently extracts invoice data, reducing manual intervention needed to manually key invoices.  Out of the box, however, WFR does not provide any reporting capability.  Without metrics, it is difficult to identify areas where WFR is adding value and other areas where the solution needs additional tuning to improve the accuracy of extracted values.

The AP Project does provide the ability to output reporting data to database tables, however by itself, this data is not very useful without a means to extrapolate and interact with the data.  This is where the WFR AP Project Reporting application comes in.  The AP Project Reporting application uses Oracle Application Express (APEX) to provide several useful reports of the data generated by the AP Project.  This application is provided by Oracle to implementation partners at no-cost and when implemented properly can add great value to a customer’s WFR solution.

The Reports
Ten reports are provided in the AP Project Reporting application (two of which are only for WFR 11.1.1).  This free article provides an overview of each report and explains how they can add value to a WFR solution!

Oracle Documents Cloud Service: 5 Things You Should Know


Oracle Documents Cloud Service: 5 Things You Should Know

Repost from Tanu Sood on Oracle WebCenter Blog

Over the last few months, we have been discussing the newly released Oracle Documents Cloud Service. We have provided a high level overview of Oracle Documents Cloud Service, ran a series of posts for an in-depth discussion into DOCS easy and intuitive administration, a discussion on mobile enablement and most recently on how Documents Cloud Service makes it easy for application developers. While you may have already picked on these, today we will discuss the five things you should know about Oracle Documents Cloud Service.

1. Documents Cloud Service is a secure cloud store, share, access solution for your enterprise needs

With Documents Cloud Service, you can store the documents in cloud extending enterprise security controls to documents whether they are in rest or in transit. You can also share these documents for work collaboration both within the organization and with approved external users, with granular controls defined to maintain document control. You can also access these files from anywhere, using any device – your desktop, a web browser on a different machine/device or on your mobile phones and tablets.

2. Documents Cloud Service offers the user experience of consumer-grade file sharing solution but security of an enterprise-grade solution

Oracle Documents Cloud Service lets you quickly and easily share information without risking company’s critical business assets and information. Anything you store in Oracle Documents Cloud Service is available to you wherever you are with whatever device you have available. That means you can work with the devices you’re comfortable using—a web browser or mobile app, anytime, anywhere, worry free.

 3. Documents Cloud Services allows you to mobilize enterprise content

Too often, organizations end up with multiple copies of important files, with no clear understanding of where the master copy resides or with information silos leading to not just security and compliance concerns but also fragmented information which may lead to costly mistakes in decision making. Businesses need contextual information wherever, whenever and a hybrid ECM solution with Documents Cloud Service tightly integrates with existing ECM systems of record and enterprise business processes, so that users can easily leverage the organization’s content assets and avoid information fragmentation and security risks.

4. Documents Cloud Service enforces corporate security and IT controls

With Oracle Documents Cloud Service, you have the convenience of collaborative access without the risk associated with consumer-grade products. Enterprise encryption, auditing, tracking, permission controls, and automatic backups keep your information safe. Your data and documents are completely isolated and secure, with separate database schemas and identity domains for each tenant. For additional security, Oracle Documents Cloud Service supports strong encryption, both at rest and in transit.

5. An accompaniment of SaaS, Documents Cloud Service is a Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering from Oracle

Documents Cloud Service offers the convenience and the user experience much like a business application but it offers the added advantage of being a platform service that enables application developers to extend and customize their cloud, on-premise and custom apps using Documents Cloud Service. You can easily embed the Oracle Documents Cloud Service web interface into your custom applications so your team can manage their folders and documents directly within the context of their existing tasks. This will enable a seamless UI experience with collaborators having access to contextual information anywhere, anytime. We had touched on this aspect in our last post as well.

As you know, there is so much more to collaboration than simply cloud file sharing and that is why Oracle Documents Cloud Service is Oracle’s enterprise-grade offering to solve a business challenge that requires more than just commodity file sharing.
