City of Ottawa uses a custom Oracle WebCenter Content based application for planning, scheduling and tracking City Council and Committee meetings. The City has recently engaged an SIRE Technologies to supply live video recording and agenda management tools for use during Council and Committee meetings (11/14/2011 - "Technology changes will reduce printing, paper costs for council" (By Neco Cockburn, The Ottawa Citizen) ).

The system is built on Microsoft platform and does not natively support any sort of data synchronization with any of the Oracle tools. Implementing the tool resulted in data duplication and created need for manual data synchronization - both labor efficient and error prone.


ECM Solutions designed and implemented a fully automated real-time synchronization solution - for pushing data from the City in-house WebCenter Content based solution to SIRE Agenda Management tool, which freed up an estimated two full time resources and eliminated data duplication and re-work.
