Claims to enhance business processes, reduce costs and improve information access
Oracle has enhanced content management with the launch of Imaging and Process Management 11g and Oracle Forms Recognition, both of which are components of Oracle Fusion Middleware and are part of the company’s strategic offering for enterprise application documents.
According to Oracle, the Imaging and Process Management 11g is an integrated and imaging product for the management of document images within enterprise business processes. It helps customers content-enable business applications and processes through pre-integration with business software, such as Oracle E-Business Suite and Business Process Management Suite; improves business processes that span lines of business; and simplifies deployment and accelerate time-to-value.
In addition, it also facilitates standards-based integrations and deployments based on a service-oriented architecture and a Java enterprise edition compatible infrastructure; and deploys imaging offerings worldwide with support for 27 languages.
The Oracle Forms Recognition is a data capture offering that can analyse, recognise, and categorise virtually any structured or semi-structured document type including invoices, purchase orders, bills of lading, and claims forms.
With Oracle Forms Recognition, information required to complete document-intensive business processes can be automatically extracted from documents captured by Oracle Document Capture and integrated into appropriate enterprise applications, the company said.
In addition, it also incorporates learning capabilities, enabling organisations to eliminate the need to create data capture templates for new business processes, vendors and document types.
Andy MacMillan, vice president of product management at Oracle, said: “The launch of Oracle Forms Recognition and Oracle Imaging and Process Management 11g, delivers a unified, comprehensive imaging and process management platform that helps put those documents and images where they belong and where they can be easily managed – in the applications business people use every day to complete their jobs.”
