Oracle WebCenter is a web platform for creating intranets, extranets, composite applications, and self-service portals. It provides users a more secure and efficient means to consume information and interact with applications, processes, and users. It allows organizations to:
- Create and manage role-based portals for desktops, tablets, and mobile devices.
- Leverage a pre-built library of reusable components.
- Use a comprehensive yet flexible set of development tools for building and deploying custom built components.
Many organizations face the challenge of having multiple portal platforms leveraged by their internal and external users. It is common to find Microsoft SharePoint used alongside other web platforms, such as WebCenter. Integrating WebCenter with SharePoint makes it easier for users throughout the organization to find important information stored in WebCenter portals without the need to directly log in and perform a separate search.
Our WebCenter Connector for SharePoint is standard, off the shelf software that addresses the following requirements:
1Works with unstructured and structured data.
2Works with large documents and attachments.
3Indexes every desired item with a very high throughput. Given the amount of data that can be stored in WebCenter, high throughput is critical to the success of the implementation.
4Minimizes the impact on the source system, ensuring no impact to its performance.
5Only surfaces the content that users are permitted to see.
6The source system retains the master information and the search index has only a representation (pointers). Users click on a search result and are taken to their original item or document.
Future-proof your investment for new SharePoint versions and O365
With each successive version of SharePoint, Microsoft extends its core capabilities, and the same is true of new releases of WebCenter. BA Insight assumes the hard work of keeping the connector up to date for both WebCenter and SharePoint. In addition, the WebCenter Connector also supports O365 through Cloud SSA and current versions of SharePoint on- premise including 2010, 2013, and 2016.
