REDWOOD SHORES: Oracle announced the general availability of Oracle Content Database (OCD) and Oracle Records Database (ORD). These options to Oracle Database Enterprise Edition enable secure, easy-to-use content management that can be deployed broadly to users dealing with content in all enterprise business processes and applications.


OCD and ORD are designed to facilitate low-cost management of office documents, PDFs, image files, and other unstructured content, which comprises 80 percent of organizational information. Implementing these products deliver secure, highly usable content management that can be broadly deployed to users who are now dealing with content in largely unmanaged environments, thereby improving corporate productivity and helping to reduce cost and risk.

Through a Services Oriented Architecture (SOA), these products also assist content-enabling of enterprise business processes and applications. As a result, independent software vendors (ISVs) such as Kofax are building deep, vertical content applications using the robust infrastructure of OCD and ORD.

OCD enables organizations to consolidate their unstructured content into a highly scalable, reliable, and secure Oracle Database repository. Once the content is successfully created and published, ORD manages the retention and disposition portion of the content lifecycle.


"Regulatory compliance, information discovery, and information security are driving customers to store their documents in the highly reliable, scalable, and secure infrastructure provided by a database," said Andy Mendelsohn, senior vice president of Database Server Technologies, Oracle.

"Oracle Content Database and Oracle Records Database were designed specifically to ease enterprise-wide adoption and to help reduce the risks associated with information discovery and information loss. Oracle Content Database fits seamlessly into the current end-user content creation environment, and appears as just another desktop drive for use from everyday office applications. Web services interfaces make it easy to integrate Oracle Content Database into business processes and enterprise applications" he added.

Oracle Content Database and Oracle Records Database are priced at $50,000 per processor and the product version of both are available for download at company website.
