Oracle Content Management | An Example of MIS

26 Feb

Hi followers! Another week = another exciting blog. Last week I promised to write more about types of Information Systems. I thought that a bigger example will show us how it actually works within the company. Oracle’s work is a good example, so have a look at the below material. Thank you!

Oracle Corporation is an American multinational computer technology corporation with headquarters in Redwood City, California, United States. The company specializes in developing and marketing computer hardware systems and enterprise software products – predominantly its own brands of database management systems. Oracle is the third-largest software maker by revenue, after Microsoft and IBM.

Unmanaged content is taking a huge toll on today’s businesses and it affects productivity, complicates regulatory compliance, increases business and legal risks, and drives up the cost of making business.

Workers spend a lot of time while looking for specific documents. They sometimes can’t find the emails, presentations, financial reports, contracts, research files and other content needed to do their job. They may not be able to quickly connect with other team members and customers in real time to share important information. Basically, the management and maintenance of unstructured content can cost the organisation time and money. In order to avoid it a good Management Information System is crucial to the business.

Oracle Content Management offers the most combined, usable Enterprise Content Management (ECM) platform in today’s market. With centralized control across single or multiple sources, common core functionality, and easily scalable content management capabilities, Oracle provides content management solutions for all content types and all users—no matter where they work in the enterprise. Because it is built on Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Content Management integrates effortlessly with Oracle’s other solutions—including business intelligence, business integration, and process management—making content management an important part of any overall business strategy.

An interesting fact: 80 % of the digitized information in a typical company is in the form of unstructured data such as documents, e-mail and images.

They have a solution to many companies and that is an effective enterprise content management (ECM) system that can consolidate all digital content into a single repository based on service-oriented architecture (SOA), so it is accessible and available to those with authority wherever they are in the enterprise. This system may be difficult to implement, because it must provide internal, external, and platform solutions that make it possible to;

  • Handle both structured and unstructured content, integrating them into a single, centralized repository
  • Share content across the enterprise, regardless of the contributor, content type, format, delivery API, consumer, or method of contribution (Web browser, desktop application, HTML form, and so on)
  • Manage content throughout its life-cycle, applying control and support to each phase from creation through destruction


With Oracle Content Management solutions, content management quickly becomes a vital part of organisation’s business strategy, benefiting by:

  • Improving operational efficiencies and increasing productivity
  • Achieving compliance and mitigating risk
  • Reducing integration costs
  • Lowering total cost of ownership
  • Minimizing training and administration costs

This system includes solutions for documentation management, web content management and digital asset management.

I hope that now you know a bit more about IS; especially, Management Information Systems. They are very important to all businesses and extremely helpful in performing day-to-day duties. Thank you for attention bloggers ! 🙂 Next week I will post my final blog.
