Reblog: When ‘FREE’ costs more in the long run: Why WebCenter often costs less than SharePoint – despite the stunning license price difference

An interesting blog post by Oracle Ace, Dmitri Khanine, about the hidden costs of a SharePoint deployment from 3rd party applications, and why WebCenter can be the right choice – costing less in the long run.

“Here’re a few key areas where SharePoint clients are forced to rely on the outside vendors and expensive integration projects – to compensate for the lack of functionality:

  • Reporting, auditing and workflow. While SharePoint offers some basic functionality in these areas, it is vastly inadequate and almost all clients are forced to compliment SharePoint with a mix of 3rd party solutions – for each of these 3 areas
  • Digital Asset Management and Conversion – out of the box conversion to different formats on check in, image and video management and metadata extraction
  • Document capture and scanning support is not included with SharePoint while Oracle WebCenter fully supports scanning.
  • Record Management. SharePoint does not meet the DoD 5015.2 specification, a de-facto industry standard, and is lacking many important features”
