Oracle has announced a move into content management with the launch of two products aimed at helping businesses manage large volumes of unstructured data.
Oracle Content Database and Oracle Records Database are designed to allow businesses to manage both structured data and unstructured content – such as documents, spreadsheets, PDF files, images and graphics - across the organisation to boost productivity and meet the need for rapid access to information.
The two products are built on Oracle’s Database 10g using open standards so businesses can integrate them into existing infrastructures and manage content.
Enterprise content management software firm Open Text has announced that it will offer products based on the new Oracle Content Database infrastructure. Open Text also intends to offer its content-enabled industry applications, such as accounts payable and loan origination on Oracle Content Database.
Open Text extend Oracle's products using imaging, records management, archiving and search technologies.
Oracle Content Database and Oracle Records Database are set to be released as options for Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition within the next two months.
