We all like to believe that technology makes everything somehow better, right? Our parents’ watches tell time and maybe the date while mine gives me the weather, tells me when to get up and exercise, tracks calories, integrates with email and sends text messages. Seemingly everything from our refrigerator to our garage door opener to the latest and greatest ERP system is connected to our phones and devices these days. Yet amidst all this technology and integration, lurking somewhere in the bowels of virtually every company and organization is a massive pile of paper.
They say the first step to fixing a problem is to admit that we have one. So let’s admit what the problem is: paper. It used to be that paper went back and forth between companies as a record of the various transactions. If you placed an order, it was on paper. When you got a shipment, there was more paper. When you needed to pay, there was a paper invoice. And up until recently, when you paid, someone somewhere was potentially issued a paper check. With the advent of the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), electronic transactions thankfully became the standard – or so we’d like to think. What’s really happened however is that only those transactions between electronically astute organizations have migrated to EDI, while smaller organizations and those facing significant technology challenges have unfortunately remained largely paper-based.

Let’s start off with this? Why would you upgrade your Oracle Forms applications? Oracle Forms Builder and Oracle Forms Services have been upgraded to simplify the development and deployment of Forms applications on the Web. In a world where very few applications stand-alone and need to integrate into their Enterprise, Oracle recognizes the importance of being able to persist your legacy Forms applications into the future while enabling your Service-Oriented Architecture to leverage their capabilities. The future of Forms includes improving the Java-based Web user interface and extending product "openness" by allowing Java integration on all three tiers.
Aside from improving your traditional Oracle Forms offering, there is a new consideration that many of us have never had to deal with in the past – mobile access. Oracle Forms and Reports are such convenient tools for developing applications for our mobile workforce, but yet they’ve been restricted to the use of laptops and desktop machines. Here’s the good news – Oracle partner Auraplayer has the skillsets and the software to help your organization quickly and efficiently overcome that obstacle.
Why did I say “skillset”? Well, Auraplayer has some really talented people in their management ranks that have been working with Oracle’s Fusion Middleware technology for a long time. One of the challenges that I had when I first heard about Auraplayer was understanding their value for my customers, so I talked to CEO Mia Urman and she helped explain to me that Auraplayer isn’t just selling a product (you’ll hear about that in a minute), they’re also helping customers upgrade. Oracle Forms has been around for so long that there aren’t a ton of projects out there that have the same personnel on staff as when they first started. Auraplayer brings the industry expertise to mitigate your risks and deliver a successful Forms upgrade so your team can start taking advantage of all the new features 12c has to offer.
- You don’t have to change your Forms applications. Re-writing code to enable a mobile UI can be costly, it can take a long time to complete, and it requires support from your development team after deployment.
- Auraplayer will REST-enable your Forms application so you can consume services across the Enterprise, making integration easy and mobile development fast and efficient.
- Couple Auraplayer with Oracle Mobile Cloud Service and you have a complete project plan from start to finish.
- Define and enable processes
- Automatically generate services
- Develop UI and consume services – works on any mobile device
So, do your end users have smart phones and tablets? Yes they do. Do you need up upgrade your legacy Forms apps and get those users actively using them in the field? You tell me!
New York City Metropolitan Transportation Authority (NYC MTA) figured out a way to use Auraplayer to “work smarter, not harder” by leveraging Auraplayer. Read about their success here: https://blogs.oracle.com/mobile/entry/new_york_mta_mobile_cloud

Millennials entering the workforce are searching for entry-level jobs that are exciting, offer opportunities for advancement, foster team-building environments, and emphasize a performance-based reward system. Government jobs are not traditionally known for holding these qualities and are instead revered for their stability, employee benefits, and commitment to public service. So as Team Leaders in Project Management positions across government IT, how can we create jobs that meet the expectations of a millennial workforce that also align with our mission statements? How can we attract young talent in work environments that are less known for innovation and more known for bureaucratic obstacles?
Did you know? According to a November 2015 article in the Washington Post:
“Overall, about a third of the private-sector labor force was born between 1980 and 1995, but younger workers make up only a quarter of federal, state and local government employees.”
In our world, the status quo is comfortable and stable. Less change means less risk and more reliable public service for citizens. Our leadership has been, and is continuing to look for improvements in technology and processes that create efficiencies and improve productivity. While trimming budgets and boosting operational costs might get your mayor and taxpayers enthused, those aren’t exactly the buzzwords that millennial IT professionals are throwing around in their post-graduate job searches.
Enter the role of Cloud. And what better platform than the Oracle Cloud - the industry's broadest and most integrated public cloud, offering best-in-class services across software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Cloud development allows your organization to dream up new and innovative projects quickly and inexpensively. How?
- Infrastructure: now you don’t have to wait for your administrators to procure new hardware, install a new database, secure connectivity, etc. Just use browser-based wizard-driven tools to provision and integrate your IT infrastructure rapidly and securely.
- Technical Tools for Business Users: Oracle’s toolsets are tailored to technical users, but aren’t restricted to Programming Gurus. Drag-and-drop form and process building with in-context assistance makes creating new services intuitive for the business users which means you can minimize expensive technical training.
- Rapid Application Development: Live preview, one-click deployment, automated back-ups and security patches; they all allow you organization to focus on end-user functionality rather than getting bogged down in the muck of managing new development environments.
- Government needs to attract younger talent to not only fill employment needs, but also to breath fresh life into our public service projects.
- Millennials are attracted to innovative projects that give them the chance to get visibility for their achievements.
- Oracle Cloud can provide your organization with the tools you need to start-up Millennial-friendly IT projects, while minimizing the costs of infrastructure, training, and administrative support.
The best way to get started is to talk to your local Oracle Account Manager to find out more, identify a use case that’s been on your “to-do” list, then sign up for a free trial of one of our Cloud services and give it a try!

One of the major requirements for public facing websites is usually to conform to standard Web Accessibility Guidelines. Oracle demonstrates the adherence of our products by issuing Voluntary Product Assessment Templates (VPATs). Oracle uses the VPAT to represent the degree of conformance to various accessibility standards and guidelines, including Section 508 (as released in 2001), Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 1.0, and WCAG 2.0.
Oracle’s Web Content Management (WCM) offering – WebCenter Sites – is a leader in the category (according to Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for WCM). WebCenter Sites provides the tools for business users to build intuitive digital experiences for end-users that adapt to their behavior and dynamically deliver content based on that behavior. Each website is enabled with social tools, intelligent user-segmentation, native integration with document management and customer relationship management tools, and an out-of-the-box mobile-friendly interface. WebCenter Sites can be deployed on-premise or in the Cloud as Sites Cloud Service (SCS) – an option of Document Cloud Service.
When it comes to accessibility, what developers and integrators really want to know is – “Can I check off the box that says WebCenter Sites conforms to Section 508 and WCAG?”
- WebCenter Sites 12c VPAT—http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/accessibility/templates/t2-4923.html
- Sites Cloud Service 15.4 VPAT—http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/accessibility/templates/t2-5397.html
What it boils down to is this:
- WebCenter Sites and Sites Cloud Service conform to the Section 508 standards and the WCAG standards at the “AA” level by providing the toolsets to:
- Facilitate the development of accessible web content and web sites
- Enable the use of supporting technologies that certain people with disabilities use to access the web
- Prevent instances with disadvantages users are unable to access content (or equivalent content)
- “Admin UI” and “Builder UI” (for Sites on-premise and Sites Cloud Service, respectively) do not adhere to the same level of accessibility standards
- This effects business users who are responsible for developing new assets (building pages, templates or workflows; defining profiles, user segments, etc.)
- Certain work-arounds are able to be provided through product customization, preferably by an Oracle-certified partner

Having a content repository integrated with Unifier can turn cluttered, unstructured content into organized assets by making it easier to catalog, access, search, and reuse documentation. Oracle WebCenter can serve as an external content repository and has zero effect on the end-user’s experience interacting with Primavera.
When attaching a document or drawing to a project in Unifier, the interface does not present anything about the underlying content repository which stores the file.
Within WCC, Unifier creates a unique folder structure to categorize and store documents. The actual file name is an encrypted file name generated when the file is stored in the repository.
Those documents can now be:
- Indexed for search
- Entered into external workflows
- Categorized into categories for retention and disposition
- Accessed via the WebCenter web browser UI, desktop tools, or mobile app
- Integrated into external applications and tools via native APIs and web services
- Install WebCenter
- Create six custom metadata fields for data that comes from Primavera
- Enter WebCenter’s connection information on the Primavera “Repository” tab

It is our goal that Oracle Documents Cloud Service (DOCS) should be a platform for easily building cloud applications. To make that possible, we provide a framework for embedding the DOCS user experience within your application. We also offer a REST API for making calls to DOCS, allowing you to surface its capability within your user interface. We are proud to announce that the REST API now supports metadata.
We will describe metadata with reference to an application for managing assets for a real estate listing site. The application will manage the relevant assets within DOCS and surface those assets in UI that it will render separately. As you would imagine, the application will need to store various images of the properties listed in the application. For example, there may be a front picture and pictures of various rooms. Additionally, there will be a need to track additional descriptive information about the assets. It is that additional descriptive information that we refer to as metadata.
- A street address
- A city
- A state
- A country
- A sale price
- Property taxes
- Previous sale prices
- Rental price
- Lease term
He can trivially alter the address collection to include a country as follows:
Once a collection and its fields are defined, any user can assign it to a folder or a document. The calls for doing so are as follows:
Of course, only users with contributor access to the folder or document may assign a collection.
Having assigned the collection, users may set values for the various fields in the collection as follows:
Collections and values assigned to a folder are inherited by both its sub-folders and any documents within it. The inherited value can be overridden by assigning a specific value for the metadata field to an item.
All of the metadata properties would be of little value if you could not retrieve metadata values previously assigned to a document. We allow you to do that in a simple call that is formatted as follows:
That call returns the metadata values in a JSON object that is contained within the HTTP response. A sample response is shown below:
Invoice processing is time-consuming and expensive work. This is especially true if your invoicing involves paper-based processes, manually-conducted approvals and manual data-entry into Oracle E-Business Suite. These inefficient methods affect the bottom line by increasing costs, creating liability and causing cash management, reconciliation & reporting challenges.
- Automate up to 90% of invoice processing with automated 2-way or 3-way match and automated invoice creation with all Oracle ERP business applications
- Streamline operations with best practice workflows, eliminating paper, cutting manual data entry and preventing associated errors
- Get real-time visibility into your end-to-end process with 360º Analytics, including Compliance, Automation and Efficiency metrics
- New Dynamic Discount Management enables organizations to save an additional 1 to 2% of annual spend
We wanted to capture the great Q&A session that occurred during the Next-Generation Accounts Payable Automation and Dynamic Discounting webcast! If you missed the live webcast, you can view the on demand webcast here.
Q: A lot of your competitors claim they can provide 80% automation. How is your offering different?
A: What we provide is measurable automation - this is what most of our customers are getting, The automation we talk about is end-to-end process automation. Not just for a portion of the process. When our competitor’s talk about 80% automation, they are talking about what you could potentially get with OCR. They provide really poor integration with your ERP system and that is where the real problem is. That is the traditional approach where after OCR, about 82% of invoices end up with exceptions in your ERP system and so your AP personnel have to manually resolve those invoices one-by-one. o Our next generation approach provides you end-to-end automation. Not only do we provide best-in-class OCR, but we have cracked the code on how we integrate real-time with your ERP systems and provide exception-free creation of invoices and 2-way and 3-way matching.
A: Yes. Irrespective of how you receive your invoices, we provide a consistent Application, Workflow and Analytics for all of these.
A: The solution is available for most major ERP systems including MS Dynamics. Also available for SAP, PeopleSoft & JD Edwards.
A: Yes, that is very common.
A: The workflow/validation process will ensure that the invoice is approved before it is submitted for payment.
A: Simplified Chinese - yes
Thank you to everyone who joined us last Wednesday on our live webcast: Marketing Asset Management Integrated with Marketing cloud; we appreciate your interest and the great Q&A that followed! For those who missed it or who would like to watch it again, we now have the on-demand replay available for the webcast here.
On the webcast, Mariam Tariq, Senior Director of Product Management -- Content and Process at Oracle discussed how organizations are struggling with managing marketing assets across multiple digital channels where content on each channel (web, email, Facebook page, etc.) is created and delivered by different teams of marketers using different technologies. Mariam gave specific examples and a great demonstration to show audience members how you can enable IT to empower Line of Business by putting the power to create rich microsites in their hands -- driving business agility and innovation.
We also wanted to capture some of the most asked questions and Mariam’s responses here. But please do follow up with us and comment here if you have additional questions or feedback. We always look forward to hearing from you.
Q: Rather than pushing assets directly into other system or even using the microsite portal to share them, can or marketing team simply share links directly from Document Cloud and not use Process or Sites Cloud?
Mariam: Absolutely. If you need only the collaboration platform, you can use Documents on its own. Keep in mind that Documents Cloud includes limited use of Sites Cloud for test use cases. So you can try out Sites Cloud with Documents.
Q: Since you didn’t show Oracle SRM in the demo, can you explain how that integration works?
Mariam: There is a release coming this spring with Documents integration into Oracle SRM. Oracle SRM to quickly summarize enables social marketers to create and manage social feeds. This includes a layout editor to create Facebook pages and ability to schedule and publish updates like twitter posts. In SRM, you will see a button allowing you to directly access Documents Cloud content like an image. The file will get copied into SRM and you can then use that file in your social messages.
Q: Can the approvers get email about tasks?
Mariam: Most definitely. Approvers get an email about the task with a link to take them directly into Process Cloud to review the files and do the approval.
Q: How does pricing work?
Mariam: Documents and Process are user based pricing starting. Sites Cloud is priced on a metric called ‘interactions’ which is a measure for data consumption, so essentially priced by the amount of data delivered across all your microsites. More detail is available at cloud.oracle.com.
Q: With the website tool you showed, can we restrict who has access to the site?
Mariam: Yes. Absolutely. You can secure access to the site.
Q: Are the conversation features you showed in Document Cloud related to the Oracle Social Network offering… it looks similar?
Mariam: Yes. We have officially rolled Oracle Social Network (OSN) into Documents Cloud. Since the social collaboration process often involves sharing and discussing documents like Word and PowerPoint files, the feedback we received from our customers was to simply merge the two rather than having a separate service for each. So now, the OSN features are part of Documents. You can directly access the comments and discussions in context of the organized files and folders of Documents Cloud rather than referencing documents in a separate interface.
Q: Where are the assets stored? Isn't WebCenter Sites from Oracle a content repository?
Mariam: WebCenter Sites is definitely used as a content management system. It's on-premise. Documents Cloud is a multi-tenant cloud solution. You can use them both together. What Documents Cloud provides you is a flexible cloud-based collaboration platform that you can also use with external agencies. Those assets can be consumed within WebCenter Sites. This is a 'hybrid' cloud to on-premise setup. Now in WebCenter Sites you can reference the cloud assets directly from Documents. A subset of your assets could be managed this way. It simply provides a more nimble cloud collaboration extension to complement WebCenter Sites (or any WCM system).
Q: Is it "all push" to customers/clients or is there a feedback loop from customers/clients to track the success of the campaign?
Mariam: In the demo, we're simply pushing the content out cross-channel. We have analytics coming later in this year that will show consumption of the content that will help with the feedback loop to measure engagement.
In case you missed the webcast and would like to listen to the on demand version, you can do so here.
Today’s digital workplace requires going beyond simple file sharing in the Cloud to delivering the next wave of productivity, efficiency, and workgroup innovation. Agencies and organizations need services that blend content, people, process and communications--enabling better and faster decisions while accelerating how work gets done. Unlike first generation content-only Cloud vendors, Oracle provides an integrated productivity suite of Cloud services that helps business communicate more effectively by automating business processes involving content.
Adapting existing systems to meet today’s needs face many challenges, including:
- Support multi-channel requirements
- Simplify communications to include content rich business processes that span multiple applications
- Enable mobile applications for field workers who need access to content in context with applications
- Convenient file sharing and collaboration, anywhere, anytime, via any device
- Simplified process automation – business friendly composition, configurable rules, auto-generated forms, process health and SLA monitoring
- Actionable alerts and security controls
- Integrations with SaaS and On-Premise applications
- Mobile Web, interactive content, and rich Websites
Please join Oracle and TekStream on March 10th to understand how you can take advantage of a transformative, Cloud-based, digital experience for your organization.
We look forward to seeing you!
