I thought I would share out the following information because of how often it comes up. When dealing with Oracle WebCenter Content or WebCenter Imaging, it is good to know what restricted use licenses each product includes. The following guide from Oracle shows you what products are bundled together in the WebCenter Suite.
In a previous blog post I wrote a step by step guide on how to install Oracle BPM 11g. That was all good and well, but now what?
Oracle slipped out the fifth patchset release for the Fusion Middleware products during the middle of the night on the 22nd of February. For the most part things will be very familiar to longtime users. One of the most visible changes is that the branding has caught up with the software. Oracle Content Server is now Webcenter Content, Imaging and Process Management is now Webcenter Imaging. It feels like an end of an era!
Earlier this month ImageSource hosted our annual ECM conference Nexus. I had the chance to meet with many of our customers and have some really great conversations. Many of these folks are running IPM 10g as a core component of their enterprise and since that product is being end of life’d they are taking a long hard look at their installations. Everyone wanted to know what options they had and to talk about the best way for them to move forward. The 11g version of IPM was frequently a core topic of conversation and everybody wanted to hear how to get from here to there.
Who is finally ready to get off their laurels and start looking at Oracle BPM 11g? I knew I was, the question I had was: where do I start? I figured the best place to start would be to actually install the software. A special thanks to one of our Systems Engineer, Les Harris who helped in getting me going on installing the software. I installed the entire Oracle BPM 11g stack on my laptop and documented the procedure.
Looking for some useful links to information about installing Oracle IPM 11g? We have been performing successful Oracle IPM 11g implementations and will be providing useful information, as well as, tips and tricks on this blog.
Here are the main links that have been leveraging for some valuable information related to this next generation ECM Suite:

I recently attended the Technology conference put on by my company. Nexus®, as it is dubbed, is where we try to bring in all the local and national minds in our ECM space together. On the vendor side we had both hardware and software manufacturers represented. On the standards side we had credits offered for PMI, ARMA, AHIMA, and IAPP just by attending. There was pre-conference training on Oracle I/PM11g, a risk management course, and an AIIM ECMp course. For the user community we had attendees from Fortune 50 companies down to small government agencies and everything in between. Sounds great right? It was.
As with any conference, you have to make it to the break out session that relate to you, and make connections with people that you can relate to. The latter was easy of course, we are all living and breathing the ECM world. Even if your content is different, the pain points are nearly always the same. It’s great to connect with others and find out their resolutions to similar issues, their approach to common problems, and to hear their success stories. Besides giving a presentation on our product ILINX® Integrate (something I have blogged about in the past), I also attended sessions on advanced document capture, ILINX Content Store, Oracle I/PM, and sessions on project management.
The breakout sessions had real value for me. Continue reading
