Oracle Imaging & Process Management – Oracle I/PM 11g

Oracle Imaging and Process Management 11g has been redesigned with JavaEE architecture to leverage Universal Content Management services for metadata and document storage.  We have installed 11g in our labs and everyone agrees that that modernized user interface and new web based administration UI is a step up from the 10gr3 release.  Additionally, the viewer has been re-written as a Java applet with cross browser/support that simplified the security model and improves usability.  The 11g release exposes images though website, portals and seamlessly integrates with all nearly all Oracle products excluding the HLLAPI connectors to the old JDE World/World Vision versions.  Understanding that may of these older JDE World/World Vision version  installations are still in production we would recommend 3rd party integrations using ILINX Integrate to allow data & images to pass effortlessly between two or more applications.  ILINX Integrate will retrieval and display  images with virtually any application regardless of source—host based, Windows, Web or Citrix—with ECM or other line-of-business systems including the older JDE World/World Vision applications.
With the launch of 11g,  IBPM 7.6 support is schedule to conclude June 2010 and 10gR3 (7.7) is supported until 2015.   For customers looking for detailed information about upgrading from earlier I/PM releases and implementing I/PM 11g, be sure to contact your ImageSource Representative or contact support at http://www.imagesourceinc.com/Support/ContactSupport/index.htm
