This is the age of digital assets. Thousands of global companies are creating, editing, and managing millions of digital files every day. These important assets are created by different departments or geographically dispersed teams using an assortment of applications and are housed in a variety of enterprise systems. Unfortunately, the siloed and disconnected nature of these systems prevents information from flowing freely among them. This locks valuable data in a given system, greatly impacting an organization’s productivity, collaboration, and profitability.
AutoVue delivers the integration framework required to unlock asset and product information to all enterprise users. In doing so, AutoVue leverages an organization’s existing IT infrastructure and plugs into new and evolving environments as required. With AutoVue integrations, users get a complete, open and standards-based set of integration tools that allows them to have a consistent view of data and business objects, create powerful visual composite applications, and expand workflow automation to document-based processes.
AUGMENTED BUSINESS VISUALIZATION (ABV)
Augmented Business Visualization (ABV) is a new paradigm in visualization which provides rich and actionable visual decision making environments on all delivery platforms by connecting portions of documents to business data found in enterprise applications. With ABV, information and business data is synthesized from multiple sources into a single visual environment, delivering rich information context to users.
Partners and systems integrators can leverage the ABV integration framework to develop ABV solutions for various enterprise applications. With ABV solutions, users can access ERP or enterprise applications data via hotspot links directly from documents and trigger actions, such as creating a maintenance service request, in ERP systems. In this scenario, the document becomes the entry point into key enterprise applications. Similarly, with ABV solutions, data from enterprise systems, such as asset repair history, can be dynamically displayed in documents via AutoVue and turned into color-based visual reports which provide in-context asset or project information.
AUTOVUE INTEGRATION TOOLS
AutoVue VueLink Integrations VueLinks are Oracle developed pre-integrated solutions, which connect AutoVue to popular Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Content Management systems. The VueLink integration serves as a "bridge" that securely streams documents from an enterprise system's repository to AutoVue for viewing, digital markup and real-time collaboration. Digital markups are saved back in the content repository and associated with the base file for easy tracking and traceability. AutoVue VueLink Integrations are available for Oracle WebCenter Content (formerly UCM), EMC Documentum, and Microsoft SharePoint.
AutoVue Web Services To support integrations within a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) framework, AutoVue provides a comprehensive set of Web Services capabilities. Through Web Services, organizations can ensure a consistent, flexible, and repeatable approach for augmenting existing business applications with enterprise visualization services, creating visual composite applications and taking workflow automation one step further. Customers can leverage the power of AutoVue, in whole or in part, and capitalize on functions like the ability to generate document thumbnails in a Web portal, feed information contained in CAD files into search engines or process high volume printing operations to name a few. AutoVue Web Services are reusable, insulated from changes in systems providers, and enable IT to optimize process flows with enterprise visualization capabilities as non intrusively as possible.
AutoVue VueBeans VueBeans are Java APIs, which can be used to extend and customize AutoVue functionality to an organization's specific requirements. IT departments can leverage these APIs to create new markup entities, automate the creation of stamps or hyperlinks, dynamically watermark for printing, etc., increasing process automation, reducing human capital expenditures and improving organizational efficiency.
