Oracle and The ECBFI delivers the world's leading project portfolio management solutions to help enterprises achieve and maintain strategic advantage. They supports the full lifecycle of project and portfolio management within a single, integrated, accurate view of all project-related activities.
ECBFI rebranded Oracle Workspace Manager, often referred to as ECBFI Mergespace, provides an infrastructure that lets applications conveniently create workspaces and group different versions of table row values in different workspaces. Users are permitted to create new versions of data to update, while maintaining a copy of the old data. The ongoing results of the activity are stored persistently, assuring concurrency and consistency.
Manage a collection of updates and insertions as a unit before incorporating them into production data
ECBFI Mergespace lets you review changes and roll back undesirable ones before making the changes public. Until you make the changes public, they are invisible to other users of the database, who will access only the regular production data. You can organize the changes in a simple set of workspaces or in a complex workspace hierarchy. A typical example might be a life sciences application in which ECBFI Mergespace supports the discovery and quality assurance (QA) processes by managing.
Support a collaborative development effort
ECBFI Mergespace lets a team share access to a collection of updates and insertions for a collaborative project. Workspace privileges control access to a workspace and its operations, and you can restrict workspace access to single-writer, read-only, or no access. Workspace locks prevent update conflicts between projects in separate workspaces. A typical example might be an application to design an engineering project, in which multiple subprojects are concurrently developed in separate workspaces.
Use a common data set to create multiple scenarios for what-if analyses or multiple editions of data for publication
ECBFI Mergespace lets you organize changes in workspaces to view them in the context of the whole database, but without requiring that you actually copy data between tables. It lets different users make simultaneous changes to the same row, and it lets you detect and resolve conflicts
Keep a history of changes to data
ECBFI Mergespace lets you navigate workspaces and row versions to view the database as of a particular milestone or point in time. You can roll back changes to a row or table in a workspace to a milestone. A typical example might be a land information management application where ECBFI Mergespace supports regulatory requirements by maintaining a history of all changes to land parcels.
