Oracle's Next-Generation Content Management Strategy for Enterprises

Customers and Partners can Easily Manage Unstructured Content

In an event hosted by Oracle President, Charles Phillips, Oracle unveiled plans to help customers and partners more easily control, secure and manage large volumes of unstructured content. With Oracle Content Database and Oracle Records Database, organizations can manage the full information spectrum of structured data and unstructured content to help increase user productivity, meet regulatory compliance mandates and reduce business risk and costs associated with the legal discovery process.

Oracle Content Database and Oracle Records Database are built on the award-winning Oracle Database 10g. This enables customers and partners to take advantage of their existing infrastructure and resources to cost-effectively manage enterprise-wide content such as Office documents, PDFs, document images and graphics. Oracle Content Database and Oracle Records Database deliver a complete solution for managing a wide range of diverse content and metadata in a single database.

SInce both products are built using open standards, they enable customers, Systems Integrators and Independent Software Vendors to utilize the power of Web services and Service Oriented Architectures to deliver user-tailored content management functionality across the entire organization.

Organizations that are unable to manage content effectively put themselves in jeopardy of losing competitive advantage through declining productivity. More importantly, they risk being out of compliance with government and industry regulations, having valuable information fall into the wrong hands, or finding their own information being used against them in litigation.

Oracle Content Database and Oracle Records Database provide a cost-effective solution to help enterprises address the increased scrutiny of their data and the need for rapid access to information.

"A well-designed content and records management solution can increase user productivity, address regulatory compliance concerns, reduce business risk and drive costs down," said Andy Mendelsohn, senior vice president of Database Server Technologies, Oracle. "However, traditional content management solutions have typically failed to achieve user adoption beyond five to 10 percent of information workers in an enterprise. Oracle Content Database and Oracle Records Database help companies take advantage of open standards and emerging SOAs to deliver cost-effective content and records management to the other 90 percent of an organization."

"Oracle has done a good job in managing scalable systems for structured data," said Melissa Webster, Program Director, Content Technologies, IDC. "It makes logical sense for them to expand their database capabilities for unstructured data with Oracle Content Database and Oracle Records Database."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
