Redwood Shores, CA – September 18, 2008News Facts• Oracle will introduce Oracle iGovernment at four Oracle OpenWorld sessions on Tuesday, September 23, 2008. The sessions will address the key components of Oracle iGovernment:o Modernizing the IT Infrastructureo Increasing Efficiency and Transparencyo Transforming Government Service DeliveryThe Public Sector General Session, which will include a customer panel on Oracle iGovernment, will follow these sessions.Availability and Details • Oracle iGovernment is a platform of database, middleware and applications built on open standards and a service-oriented architecture (SOA) – enabling innovative, integrated and intelligent operations. It allows government agencies to improve efficiency, reduce costs, increase transparency and become more responsive to current and future mandates such as implementing shared services and providing 24/7 access to government services.• Oracle iGovernment provides a path for public sector entities to move beyond eGovernment. While eGovernment has enabled agencies to provide access to vast amounts of information and key government transactions, operations are typically driven by systems that are custom-developed, stand-alone and unique to each business process – limiting efficiency, cost savings and the services that agencies can deploy. By implementing applications like customer relationship management (CRM) and case management as a shared service, public sector organizations can vastly improve service delivery, gather metrics to improve performance and reduce costs.• Oracle will conduct a four-part Webcast series to introduce Oracle iGovernment, hosting the first Webcast on December 3, 2008.
