Unlocking Business Potential: Migrating Oracle WebCenter to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure via the Oracle Cloud Marketplace

In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, businesses are constantly seeking ways to optimize their operations, enhance collaboration, and streamline processes. For organizations leveraging Oracle WebCenter for content management (including Accounts Payable and Imaging), collaboration, and engagement, the transition to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) presents a transformative opportunity to unlock new levels of agility, scalability, and efficiency.

At Fishbowl Solutions, we understand the significance of embracing innovation to stay ahead in the competitive market. At Fishbowl, we’re thrilled to share insights into the compelling benefits of migrating Oracle WebCenter to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

1. Enhanced Scalability and Performance

One of the primary advantages of migrating Oracle WebCenter to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is the ability to leverage the scalability and performance capabilities of the cloud. With Oracle Cloud’s elastic infrastructure, organizations can seamlessly adjust resources to meet fluctuating demands, ensuring optimal performance during peak usage periods without the hassle of managing on-premises hardware.  Many on premise WebCenter customers will purchase processor licenses to handle the few times a year in which they need to support peak workloads, this can be expensive.  95% of the year they operate at a fraction of the capacity.  Leveraging OCI scalability peak loads can be managed via configuration.


2. Improved Security and Compliance

In today’s digital landscape, data security and compliance are paramount concerns for businesses of all sizes. By Lifting and Shifting or Migrating your Oracle WebCenter workloads to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, organizations can benefit from robust security features and compliance certifications offered by Oracle Cloud. Fishbowl Solutions provides a tool (Content Migrator) for assisting in the migration from on premise to the cloud.   From encryption and access controls to regular security updates and compliance frameworks, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides a secure environment to safeguard sensitive information and meet regulatory requirements.


3. Simplified Management and Maintenance

Managing on-premises infrastructure can be resource-intensive, requiring dedicated IT resources and ongoing maintenance efforts. By migrating to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, organizations can offload the burden of infrastructure management to Oracle’s experienced team of professionals. With automated provisioning, monitoring, and maintenance capabilities, businesses can focus on core initiatives while Oracle Cloud handles infrastructure complexities.


4. Seamless Integration and Interoperability

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers seamless integration with a wide range of Oracle Cloud services, enabling organizations to build comprehensive, interconnected solutions tailored to their specific needs. Whether it’s integrating with Oracle SaaS applications, leveraging Oracle Autonomous Database, or harnessing the power of AI and machine learning services, migrating Oracle WebCenter to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure opens up a world of possibilities for innovation and digital transformation.  Oracle Cloud services such as Cohere Generative AI, Document Understanding and Visions services are powerful tools to extend how you leverage content within your WebCenter platform.


5. Cost Efficiency and Predictable Pricing

Migrating Oracle WebCenter to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure can result in significant cost savings compared to traditional on-premises deployments. With pay-as-you-go pricing models and the ability to scale resources based on actual usage, organizations can optimize their IT spending and avoid upfront capital expenditures. Additionally, Oracle Cloud’s transparent pricing structure provides predictability and visibility into ongoing costs, enabling better budget planning and resource allocation.


6. WebCenter Marketplace Offerings to Date

The Marketplace will be supporting a number of combinations of pre-configured installation options under the BYOL (bring your own license) model:

  • WebCenter Content, Imaging & Enterprise Capture 12c (BYOL)
  • WebCenter Portal 12c (BYOL)
  • WebCenter Sites 12c (BYOL)

Future announcements over the next month or so in 2024 will have more streamlined options and configurations but also include a Paid \ Subscription model which is planned for April 2024.
