Due to the sanctions within our country, we only have access to on-premises deployment models. The system is very customizable and we have plans to integrate it with our finance and inventory systems as well. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. I believe the solution is one of the best tools in the world.

In terms of advice for people thinking about this solution, they need to do a very detailed requirement document. It is very important that they find a flow that suits their company, not just by looking at the brand. They should have a very deep dive into how their business is structured and how they can structure it. They should also have a look at their digital calculation journey, say five years from now instead of looking at just what works today. I think they should start looking at the scalability of the various industries they want to go into because the landscape changes in the next five years like we have witnessed today. They need a product that can continue to grow with them, that will scale so that they don't start shopping for a new one after five years. On a scale from 1 - 10, I give it a 7.

In terms of advice I would give to others considering implementing the solution, I'd say if they have the Oracle stack, they should use the solution. If they have other technology stacks, I would search for solutions that offer a better price. The solution works great. Feature-wise, it's a very complete solution. I'd rate the solution overall eight out of ten, but if I was just rating it for price, I would rate it at about four or five out of ten, simply because I find it so expensive.

Every day, Oracle is acquiring new products or developing them with their own research and development team. Definitely, there is much development going on. My advice to anybody who is researching this solution is to first be sure about the product that they need. The second thing is to be sure about the roadmap that they want behind this product. Next, I suggest going with the best practices offered by Oracle because they are very well experienced in this field, and they offer it to help cut implementation time. I think that people should definitely go with cloud-based solutions such as Oracle Fusion or the Oracle cloud machines. This gives a company all of its applications and required software on the cloud, but at the same time, it is on-premises. Overall, this is a very good solution and other than the support for the Arabic translation, I cannot think of additional features that I would like at the moment. That said, nothing is perfect. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

The price of this solution is considered to be high; however, when speaking with Oracle, it is possible to get discounts of up to sixty percent. Other providers will never give a discount for more than twenty percent, so, in this case, Oracle gets much cheaper.

The pricing is very high. You can get a similar solution for free. If you compare it and other products side by side, you would not buy Oracle.

WebCenter content access has a lot of options and flexibility. At this time, I only see one problem: in the sub-content and channels surrounding Windows 10. It only functions with Windows 7 and Windows 8. All of the operating systems in my company are up-to-date and we are using Windows 10. For whatever reason, you can't use the Oracle content on these platforms at all. This lapse is very bad for my company because I can't change the version of Word and downgrade. Maybe it is just a technical problem. But it is a lot of my problem with this solution currently.

This solution needs to support translation into the Arabic language. It is needed for the forms, as well as the tabs in the software itself.
