Independent Report and Inclusion in the EContent 100 Build on Recent Third-Party Accolades for Oracle Content Management, a Component of Oracle Fusion Middleware
REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., 04-DEC-2007 05:00 AM
“The Forrester Wave: Enterprise Content Management Suites, Q4 2007,” recognized Oracle as a leader in Enterprise Content Management and cited Oracle’s, “well-rounded suite with strengths in document management, records management, and WCM.”1
The Forrester report follows on the heels of Oracle Universal Content Management 10g’s rating of “Excellent” in an InfoWorld product review that praised Oracle Universal Content Management 10g as a “deep product” that “makes a lot of sense for large enterprises.”
Oracle was included in EContent magazine’s EContent 100, a list of the 100 “companies that matter most in the digital content industry.”
Oracle was also named to the leaders quadrant in Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management, 2007,”2 which was released in September 2007.
Oracle Content Management delivers an integrated and comprehensive content management offering, which provides a superior user experience spanning the entire spectrum of unstructured content types from files and documents to records and digital images.
“Oracle Content Management offers unparalleled functionality and ease-of-use for customers seeking to gain control, manage access and help ensure compliance across myriad forms of enterprise content. Additionally, as a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Content Management provides seamless integration with Oracle Applications, which enhances the value of the software by extending the breadth of content under management and generating new opportunities for organizations to empower knowledge workers, automate and accelerate business processes and eliminate redundant data entry,” said Terry Butler, chief solutions officer, ImageSource, a member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork.
“As the regulatory and litigation climate puts increasing pressure on companies’ records management capabilities, we see high value in a comprehensive system, like Oracle’s content management software, to manage security, retention and destruction for both paper and electronic records. Enlightened companies are integrating Oracle’s software with their physical records management software and archive systems to help ensure consistency and control for all media and for the entire lifecycle of a record,” said Michael Karp, executive vice president, North American Sales, Iron Mountain, a member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork.
“Regulatory compliance and the need to better store, share and access content of all kinds across an organization is making content management a mission-critical application for enterprises of all sizes. Recent third-party recognition of the value Oracle Content Management provides is a reflection of our commitment to deliver the industry’s most integrated, comprehensive and easy-to-use content management software,” said Frank Radichel, vice president, Software Development, Oracle.
