Oracle Imaging and Process Management (Oracle I/PM) provides a way to easily access, track, and annotate documents across an enterprise. Different types of information can be tracked for different types of documents based on business use. For example, managing invoices and contracts require using different types of information. After a document is uploaded, its metadata can be used to search for and retrieve the document for printing or for viewing through a standard web browser. If you have the proper permissions, you can also add annotations which can be saved to a document for review. Annotations can be secured so that only people with the appropriate permissions are allowed to view specific annotations.


This guide is intended for users who must upload documents to the Oracle I/PM system or use Oracle I/PM to search, view, annotate, and retrieve documents.

Documentation Accessibility

Our goal is to make Oracle products, services, and supporting documentation accessible to all users, including users that are disabled. To that end, our documentation includes features that make information available to users of assistive technology. This documentation is available in HTML format, and contains markup to facilitate access by the disabled community. Accessibility standards will continue to evolve over time, and Oracle is actively engaged with other market-leading technology vendors to address technical obstacles so that our documentation can be accessible to all of our customers.
