A first look at Oracle's new cloud file sharing and sync

  • 15-Oct-2014

Oracle finally announced its public cloud-based file sharing and sync service. Called Oracle Documents Cloud Service (ODCS), it fills an important gap in the mega-vendor's Enterprise Content Management (ECM) offerings.

The new platform has been long-awaited, as it competes with existing offerings from ECM and Document Management vendors such as EMC, HP, OpenText, Alfresco, and Microsoft, as well as upstart players like Box.

In a fresh advisory briefing for our ECM stream subscribers, we look at what the Oracle platform offers, how it differentiates itself from others and what are the pitfalls you should look out for.

Now that most ECM as well as many other enterprise software vendors have some sort of cloud-based file sharing and sync service, a few questions arise...

Does it signify a start of the end of stand-alone file-sharing and sync services? What do you think?
