The Oracle Universal Content Management Handbook

By: Dmitri Khanine

Overview of this book

Oracle UCM is a world-leading Enterprise Content Management platform. From Document Management, Web, Records, and more—Oracle has got all your business needs covered. Oracle UCM enables your organization to efficiently manage, store, preserve, and deliver content and documents. Written by Oracle ACE Dmitri Khanine, this book is a complete practical guide to building an ECM system and successfully configuring, administering, and operating it. It also shows you how to efficiently manage your organization's content and customize the UCM to fit your needs. This book wastes no time in getting you up and running and dives straight into the installation of the content server in Chapter 1. In the second chapter, you will master all the major controls and the admin interface. Metadata—a very important ingredient of any ECM—is thoroughly covered in Chapter 3. The book then moves on to the important tasks of securing your ECM system, configuring and managing workflows, and understanding and implementing virtual folders. The book also gives you an under-the-hood view of Stellent in Chapter 7. In the later chapters, you will learn how to migrate content like a pro and easily customize Oracle ECM. A bonus addition to the book is the final chapter, which is an easy-to-follow primer on web content management.

I would like to thank Dmitri Khanine and the Independent Oracle ECM Knowledge Center for inviting me to participate in this work. Dmitri's easily accessible writing style and his ability to distill the complexities of enterprise content management into those core capabilities that people actually need is refreshing.

I would also like to thank the team at Fishbowl Solutions for supporting my work on this and similar projects. This reflects our core belief that a healthy ECM community is maintained and enriched through participation with others who share our passion even as we compete for business.

I would be remiss if I failed to offer my thanks to Packt Publishing for bearing with my schedule with the grace and gentleness they consistently offered.

Finally, thanks to my wife and kids for giving up evenings with Dad as I worked with Dmitri on this project.
