WebCenter Content is suitable for payables invoice processing for companies with a huge volume of paper invoices. 80% of data entry effort can be reduced.
For small companies with less volume, WebCenter may not make sense. WebCenter is not perfect. It has some issues. We raised enhancement requests with Oracle, hopefully, Oracle will resolve them soon.

If a customer is setting up a system from scratch, can they afford to have a 3rd party integrator come on site to assist with designing, configuring and launching their installation? It might be very difficult to bring a WebCenter system up, without any expert assistance for the launch.

If a potential customer needs to have a great deal of interconnectivity with other enterprise systems, how much custom development support can they muster to support their plans?

  • WebCenter Content's biggest strength is its robust content repository
  • WebCenter Content provides SOAP and JSON web service APIs for integration with third-party and custom tools
  • WebCenter Content has very strong yet flexible access control and security
  • WebCenter Content has very powerful, customizable workflows to accommodate any organizational authoring, editing, and approval structure

  • WebCenter Content is fast and scales very well for optimal performance.
  • Better user experience, especially in SiteStudio, the web development IDE.

  • More modern and visually appealing user interface overall
  • A full implementation of WebCenter Content as a managed node in the WebLogic application server to leverage all of WebLogic's capabilities
  • Integration of a web experience/campaign management tool for managing online marketing targeting and personalization
For organizations that have a huge number of documents in a variety of formats (MS Word, PDF, text, etc) to manage - and by huge I mean hundreds of thousands or millions, WebCenter Content is a great solution. WebCenter Content is also a great choice if/when an organization has a lot of users with different roles and permissions to be managed. During the selection process the focus should be on how the client actually works. Implementation and development are relatively small parts of the overall life cycle. What is important to ascertain is who will be using the system (authors, administrators, editors, etc), what tasks or objectives do they need to complete, and what the content creation, review, editing, approval, and maintenance process looks like.

We use Oracle WebCenter Content to store our invoices from EBS and also HR docs from PeopleSoft into Oracle WebCenter Content Imaging.
  • The Forms Recognition component works very well
  • The CMU and Archiver utilities provide the capability to import and export content between different environments
  • Mobile offering
  • More user friendly administration
It is well suited for imaging and bulk data. It is not very well suited in my opinion in collaborative document editing.
