The Texas A&M University Oracle WebCenter Experience

Texas A&M University is the leading university in the state of Texas.  In 2011, the University had more than 2,700 academic staff and more than 53,000 students.

As such, it has a large system of researchers that it needs to manage.  It wanted its faculty to be as successful as they can be and have the maximum amount of time to do their research, instead of having to worry about anything else, especially administrative matters.

The university turned to Oracle WebCenter to help its faculty and its researchers go through large amount of data.  Oracle WebCenter enabled them to communicate with each other, thus also allowing them to share funding opportunities as well as information on equipment that are available at other labs, among other things.

It gave them wikis, blogs and other online forums to share information.

For example, if a researcher is looking for an expert in chemistry or is coming up with a delivery method for drugs, he or she can use WebCenter to find just the right person he or she is looking for in as little time possible.

Why is this important?  Texas A&M University has 11 universities, a health science center and seven Texas agencies under its system.  That alone makes it difficult to track personnel, experts and resources.  The University spends $700 million for its research activities every year.

WebCenter allowed the university to coordinate work done across each organization in the system.  So instead of administering the system, the researchers have more time to innovate, research and discover new things.

With Oracle WebCenter, you can transform your organization to be more agile, while also increasing customer loyalty and user productivity.  You could also make accurate information more readily available for your users.  More than this, you can connect people with information and people with people.
