Forrester evaluated 12 vendors against 66 criteria, categorized into three main groups: Current Offering, Strategy and Market Presence.
Based on Forrester’s assessment, Oracle WebCenter received high marks due to its broad set of capabilities for managing foundational, business, transactional and persuasive content types.
According to the report, “Oracle ranks as Leader in all content technology segments due to its broad set of capabilities.”
The report continued, “Oracle WebCenter, which includes Oracle’s new portal platform, weaves ECM into the fabric of the portal application. By integrating ECM into the Oracle WebCenter portfolio, Oracle’s ECM functionality provides the foundation for many content-centric business solutions, such as contract management or team collaboration. The Oracle WebCenter portfolio is made available to all of the core Oracle products, thus providing ECM functionality to other Oracle products, such as Siebel or PeopleSoft. Oracle’s ability to surface ECM functionality in Oracle WebCenter provides organizations with the ability to implement an enterprise portal with extensive ECM capabilities.”
A component of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g, Oracle WebCenter is the platform for user engagement. It is a complete, open and integrated portfolio of portal, web experience management, content management and social networking technology in a single product suite.
“Many organizations are faced with a difficult balancing act as they try to address increasingly complex content management issues while meeting the demands from information workers for simple and easy to use content management tools,” said Andy MacMillan, vice president, Product Management, Oracle. “We believe that Forrester Research’s recognition of Oracle as a Leader highlights our commitment to delivering a complete and unified portfolio of tools that help our customers address these challenges by seamlessly connecting people and information.”
