Oracle Offers Up to 100 Percent Trade-in Credit to Documentum Customers

In an offer worth up to US$1 million, Oracle is now giving Documentum customers as much as 100 percent trade-in credit on their EMC Documentum platform licenses when they purchase Oracle WebCenter Content.

"In its day, Documentum was a great solution," says Joe Golemba, vice president of product management, Oracle WebCenter. "But today, its architecture is aging fast, maintenance costs are high, and integrations are often complex and expensive. In addition, their roadmap continues to change along with delayed releases of committed product updates."

Meanwhile, next-generation content management is becoming a vital productivity tool, especially considering that knowledge workers represent the fastest-growing segment of the workforce.

To get the right content into the right hands at the right time, organizations need more than a document repository. They need content management that is
  • Secure yet searchable
  • Deeply integrated into business processes
  • Available for Web 2.0 style collaboration
Stop Maintaining, Start Innovating
While EMC Documentum relies largely on partner solutions, Oracle provides a seamless, scalable, end-to-end solution—including integration with enterprise applications.

"Such integration brings content management directly into business processes," says Golemba. "This is a huge productivity booster, and with Oracle you can make it happen without expensive and time-consuming manual integrations."

Just as important, Oracle WebCenter Content integrates seamlessly with Oracle Social Network. This enables users to collaborate on content creation and management via social networking tools embedded directly into business processes.

Slashing TCO with Oracle
Besides these strategic advantages, Oracle WebCenter has multiple cost advantages over the EMC Documentum platform, according to Golemba, including
  • Less reliance on third-party partners, especially for search and collaboration
  • Per-seat licensing not required
  • Significantly lower maintenance costs
  • Faster time-to-value with proven integrations
"When you add up all these savings, the difference in TCO is potentially enormous," says Golemba.
