Oracle Content Management Solutions
The Unified ECM Platform

This article is part of the Best Practices White Paper Focus On Oracle [February 2009]

Oracle Universal Content Management (formerly Stellent Universal Content Management) manages and delivers the entire spectrum of unstructured content, from documents, graphics and Web pages to scanned images, e-mail and records. The scalable system is an award-winning unified ECM platform offering:

  • Multisite Web content management—an enterprise-class Web content management framework with the tools necessary to effectively manage multiple Web sites. Oracle Universal Content Management dramatically improves productivity and enables organizations to launch Web sites quickly while maintaining accurate, timely and current Web content with consistent branding and presentation across all corporate sites.
  • Records and retention management—a robust set of capabilities to ensure that all of an organization’s content (both records and non-records) conforms to corporate and regulatory retention management requirements. The results are improved compliance, minimized litigation risk and lower storage costs.
  • Document and imaging management—allowing organizations to effectively and efficiently capture, secure, share and distribute digital and paper-based documents and reports. With Oracle Universal Content Management, organizations save money and improve operational efficiencies by streamlining communications, automating routine tasks and lowering costs related to the printing, shipping and storage of business documents.
  • Digital asset management—enabling organizations to store, find, view and use digital assets, such as graphics, audio and video files, quickly and easily. Digital assets renditions are made available instantly in the appropriate format, resolution and size for the Web, in print or in other programs.

Oracle’s Comprehensive Content Management Offering
Oracle Content Management addresses all aspects of ECM—from archiving and imaging, to Web content and document management, to records and retention management—in a highly integrated suite of products. In addition to Oracle Universal Content Management, organizations can leverage:

  • Oracle Universal Records Management—providing the most comprehensive DoD 5015.2 compliant records management system, enabling customers to apply records and retention management policies and practices to content in multiple remote repositories and applications including file systems, content management systems and email archives, as well as addressing the management of physical records in the same system.
  • Oracle Information Rights Management—providing policy-based security and retention management on documents when they leave a repository. By using encryption to "seal" documents, Oracle Information Rights Management (former SealedMedia technology) continues to secure and audits the usage of documents and email everywhere they’re stored and used—even after they leave managed servers and firewalls. Organizations can define fine-grained policies for viewing, editing, printing and copying sensitive information, ensuring that only authorized users have access to secured content.
  • Oracle Imaging and Process Management—decreasing business transaction cycle times by automating back-office operations such as invoices and claims form processing and reducing physical storage costs by turning paper-based documents and reports into digital images. The system provides complete imaging management, from creation to archiving, while enabling annotation and markup of images, routing and approval automation. Certified integrations enable you to quickly "image-enable" business applications, for example ERP or HR systems, using Oracle’s E-Business Suite, JD Edwards and PeopleSoft Enterprise.
  • Oracle Universal Online Archive—an enterprise content infrastructure that is highly scalable for global deployments, and is based on Oracle Database 10g— the industry’s fastest, most scalable and secure database. Supports file server and archive consolidation and serves as a content repository for enabling and building content-centric applications.
