How to Install the Desktop Integration Suite for WebCenter Content

What is the Desktop Integration Suite?

Desktop Integration Suite (DIS) provides a set of embedded applications that help you seamlessly integrate your desktop experience with Oracle Content Server (Oracle UCM servers), Oracle Content Database (Oracle Content DB), or other WebDAV-based content repositories. More specifically, it provides convenient access to these content servers directly from Microsoft Windows Explorer, Microsoft Office applications (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint), and supported e-mail clients (Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes).

Integrating content repositories such as Oracle Content Server with your desktop applications improves your ability to work with files on the content server. You can easily manage files on the server and share files with other users directly from your desktop in addition to logging in to the content server and using the web browser interface. Desktop Integration Suite provides a simplified interface for managing files in a unified way from all of your familiar desktop applications.
