Overall Satisfaction

Oracle WebCenter Sites is being used as a content management system to manage the editorial content of the public section of the web portal of a big energy company.
Allows you to leave full autonomy to the marketing group in content management, deciding when and how to make them public. It supports the entire process of drafting, by the editor, approver and the publishing process, where each user has their own role within a defined workflow.
  • Easy-to-use content authoring and design tools for business users.
  • Segmentation based on implicit (behavioral) or explicit (known user or characteristics) criteria or a combination of the two.
  • Flexible rules engine for creation of customer segments and recommendations, enabling delivery of targeted content and campaigns.
  • The old version is lacking in Mobile Site Management functionality, but the 11.1.1.8 release of WebCenter Sites offers a new, fully integrated mobility solution that allows digital marketers to manage mobile version of sites
  • Automated management of product upgrades, to incorporate bug fixes and new enhancements
  • Lack of support for the management of e-commerce out of the box
  • Increased employee efficiency: the marketing group can edit the content independently without the need of a programmer
  • Better customer service: the content of the web portal are always up to date
  • Strong Scaling and performance
A valuable tool for enabling marketers and business users to easily create and manage contextually relevant social and interactive online experiences across multiple channels on a global scale to drive sales and loyalty. It also allows multi-site management (in fact Sites) using the assets and template developed, without having to re-implement again for each individual site.
Oracle WebCenter Sites is a content management system well-structured and robust, suitable for large projects. This product is suitable mainly for static content, not for transactional processes (eg form with step). It is less appropriate for small portals with low number of visitors, which you do not want to invest a lot in terms of maintenance.
