Collaborate ’08 is fast approaching, and Oracle Enterprise Content Management (ECM) users can look forward to several ECM sessions, including Collaborate’s ‘Conference Within a Conference’ that will focus specifically on Oracle’s content management past, present and future.
All and all, there will be over 30 sessions on a variety of ECM topics, including: “Exciting New Features of Universal Content Management,” “50 Ways to Integrate with Universal Content Management,” and “Oracle Content Management Roadmap.”
This announcement also comes as Oracle’s Universal Content Management system was given the 2008 Technology of the Year Award by Infoworld. It looks like Oracle’s ECM acquisitions — such as Stellent and last month’s announced acquisition of Captovation – are proving to be very worthwhile.
There’s always room for improvement, though, especially if you ask SAP, which has been circulating a new press release saying that SAP is taking Hyperion ECM customers away from Oracle. It even names some of those customers. Longtime industry analyst and blogger Josh Greenbaum had some very interesting things to say about SAP’s claims, by the way.
What features would you like to see added (or dropped) in Oracle’s content management products? And if you had to choose between Oracle and SAP ECM, who would you pick and why? Let us know.
