The Customer:

Supplier of Technology Hardware & Equipment
Revenue: Over $50 Billion

Their current Documentum support had ran out, and they wanted to find a solution that would replace their existing environment and set them up for future success.

The Solution:

TekStream was chosen to help because of our vast Oracle WebCenter experience and ability to bring innovative solutions to the conversation. For this project, we used our QuickStream process for the design and discovery portion and an engineered solution called WebCenter Content Loader for the migration. With this proprietary solution, TekStream was able to migrate over 5 million documents, recode and migrate 18 applications, reorganize and simplify security and add a brand new functionality for records retention…all in a matter of 6 months.

“Whether you’re a growing mid-market company or a large-scale global organization, you need an effective system to manage surges in contract volumes and ensure accuracy in reporting,” said Judd Robins, Executive Vice President. “The reality is many of the current tools require attorneys and procurement teams to use multiple systems to access and manage contracts, and provide the business little flexibility to address changing business needs.”

Executive Director, Solutions and Training, Troy Allen, wants organizations to know that this tool is very different. “TekStream’s new Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) solution gives companies one consolidated and secure platform to logically ingest and organize contracts and supporting documents.” He added, “Built on Oracle’s industry leading document management system, WebCenter Content, it is designed to seamlessly integrate with enterprise applications like Oracle’s Enterprise Business Suite (EBS), PeopleSoft and JD Edwards.”

Solution Benefits:

1.   Centralized repository for all in-process and executed contracts.

2.   Increase efficiency through better control of the contract process.

3.   Support for “Evergreen” contracts help to improve contract renewal rates.

4.   Improve compliance to regulations and standards by providing clear and concise reporting of procedures and controls.

WebCenter Content – Admin Applet Fix With Java Security

TekTalkBlogHeader

 

by: Sanjay Sen, Developer, TekStream Solutions, Webcenter Content Optimization

The Problem:

When users login to UCM and navigate to the UCM’s Admin Applets, they may experience that the Admin Applet icons do not load (as shown below).

Note: Conducted using Firefox and Google Chrome browsers. The installed Java version on the user’s local machine was Java 7 update 51.

1

Part of the reason for this is because the applets run on a lower version of Java (ideally Java 6 update 27; however, this is not confirmed as many users on the Oracle forum have described having lower versions of Java and yet experiencing this issue). Eventually it becomes a hit or miss situation. The downgrading process is also cumbersome and can take some time trying to install the correct version of Java until you have it finally working.

There is an alternative fix to this problem – enabling a Java security access to the UCM’s URL implicitly.  The steps below outline this process:

Step 1:

Click Start from the windows taskbar and navigate to “Control Panel.”

Step 2:

In Control Panel, click on “Java.”

2

Step 3:

Under the Java Control Panel, navigate to the Security Tab.

3

Step 4:

By default “Enable Java content in the browser” show be checked à Make sure that it is.

4

Step 5:

Security Level should be set to “High” by default à Make sure that it is.

5

Step 6:

In the “Exception Site List” click “Edit Site List…”

6

Step 7:

A new window will pop-up “Exception Site List” click on “Add.”

7

Step 8:

Enter http://localhost:16200/cs/idcplg.

Click “OK.” (P.S – you will notice an unlocked icon. It is telling you that this site is at security risk – totally OK!)

8

Step 9:

Another pop-up window will appear, asking you for final permissions to give access to that web location.  Click “Continue.”

9

Step 10:

You should now see the URL in the list. Click “OK”.

Try to reload the Admin Applet in UCM, and see the magic!
