Document Management system with enterprise application integration

The content across organizations (private, public, government) continues to grow. Content is spinning out at an increasing rate with high-volume and high-velocity. Big Contents can be in form of records, documents, blogs, media, files, web logs, social media feeds and more. Big Content is required to manage this huge unstructured data along with structured data.

100% Open Source

Whether for compliance, customer service, business continuity or effective collaboration document management is critical to any organization. Today users want the simplicity of a departmental solution, with simple to configure applications; while corporations want the consistent control and compliance of a scalable, robust content management system. OneGlobe offers the industry a leading open source document management system to simply capture, search and collaborate on documents with full library services and lifecycle management, on a unified, robust repository.

Traditional Document Management

Traditional document management has its roots in complex document vaults accessed by document librarians. Theses have historically been developed as large, complex, enterprise software applications. This has caused document management systems to be:

• Complex and difficult to use

• Very costly

• Very low adoption rate – typically 5% of users

The choice of a complex, robust document system or a simple to use system that lacks essential features has resulted in a very low adoption rate. The systems that users are familiar with and use are:

• Shared drive for storage

• Email for collaboration

• Google for search

• Folder structures and content for project plans

The following use case is for uploading a document to content management system from oracle EBS.

  • Once the report is completed, our web services will be automatically triggered which will upload the generated report to the document management services.
