ECM Solutions is a Toronto-based professional services and software development firm. Our focus is helping customers manage their content for web sites, portals, records management, and imaging. We work mainly with Oracle WebCenter, including the WebCenter Content (formerly Oracle UCM, formerly Stellent), Records and Imaging, WebCenter Portal Suite, and the new WebCenter Sites Product.
We offer a wide array of free and paid services that are designed to help you get the maximum value out of your Oracle technology investment - in minimum time.
Below you'll find specific information about the services we provide:
Are you a fan of agile methodologies? Don't have all of your requirements defined? Maybe you're not exactly sure what capabilities Oracle's WebCenter Content, Records or Imaging products provide? Then, the "Quick Start" will get you up and running in just a week or two.
You now have a tool you can start using right away, or use it as a pilot environment to help the business to put together a full set of requirements based on what is possible. This will shorten your overall project timeline and slash the costs of analysis.
How we can help
Will walk you through the installation and basic configuration, provide accelerated training or job shadowing and share the insights, best practices and implementation success stories that best apply to your specific environment
Are you upgrading your Stellent/Oracle WebCenter solution or migration content in or out - and finding the process a bit tedious? We have been working with the product for almost 10 years, and we have helped countless customers upgrade their systems. We have a methodology and custom scripts that make content migration and conversion much more manageable.
How we can help
We're also happy to share our methodology and work with you to plan and implement your custom content conversions and migrations - no matter if you're moving in the WebCenter or out and into a 3rd party product.
We help you flesh out your vision and your business needs into an intuitive and responsive Content Management application. We provide the technical know how and work with your key stakeholders to crystallize and prioritize business requirements and map them to available out of the box and custom functionality.
How we can help
We produce the level of documentation you require - from detailed elaborate business requirements - to a simple power-point with screen mock-ups and process flows - or even a quick working prototype to get your dev team started.
If you feel that your current solution may benefit from an independent review and un-biased feedback, let ECM Solutions take a quick inventory of what you currently have, and help you develop the fastest route to where you need to be - while steering you clear of traffic, speed traps and other road hazards.
If you already have a WebCenter/ECM strategy and infrastructure in place, and you are just looking to extend what you currently have to meet a new business requirement, ECM Solutions can help you quickly meet those needs, without having to pull your resources out of their day to day activities.
Have more requirements than people to fulfill them? Let us provide you with a seasoned ECM expert to alleviate some of the pressure on your team.
With us you don't pay for training. Period. There's no per-person per-day charges that amount to thousands of dollars - all while you are in a minus as it is, after having to pull a bunch of your best developers out of projects and put them in a training class for a few days (just to learn a bunch of stuff they may not even use!). Nope. You can get that from bigger Oracle partners.
First of all, we only give you the key skills and the know-how that gets your guys started and getting them comfortable with WebCenter Suite in virtually no time.
Second - our training is included into the regular consulting job we do - both fixed price and hourly - based, so there's no need to pull your people off for an extended periods of time.
We package all the insight you need in a series of short knowledge transfer sessions - spread across your learning curve. The rest of the learning is done hands-on - while completing your projects.
We're also available to mentor your technical resources
Get your key resources up to speed, share the product-specific tips, tricks, and best practices and design the solution together
We can also develop and conduct custom training for your business users and content contributors to teach them to take advantage of content management.
Let me clarify that when I say "custom" - I don't mean that we'll be charging an arm and a leg for "customizing" the course. Most of the times we just give you a list of the topics available and simply pick the ones that you feel will need to be included. Plus we can always cover the ones that are not on the list - its your call!
Now this is the area where we really shine. First of all, no one beats our prices and timelines when it comes to custom component development. Even the outsourcers. This is why so many system integrators hire us to deliver or augment their projects! We offer the reliability, communications and the comfort level that only the North American Partner can provide - all while giving you the benefit of super aggressive fixed prices and low hourly rates you've come to expect from off-shores.
Here's more specifically what we do when it comes to custom development:
