Compare and Contrast DocOrigin and Oracle BIP
Are you an IT professional looking to better understand the distinctions between Oracle’s Business Intelligence Publisher (“BIP”) and Eclipse Corporation’s DocOrigin? One way is to view this video comparing features and capabilities. Though having some similarities on the surface, these products differ in significant ways. DocOrigin provides a single Design software solution which allows your team to design forms, complex documents, forms and labels with a single solution. In addition, DocOrigin not only supports Oracle and JD Edwards software, it works with all business software. Now you have one solution that provides everything needed to design and generate mission critical information on paper or electronic.It’s helpful to organize the discussion into logical groupings of features.
Similar Problems – Different Approaches
Any solution employed to manage Enterprise output needs to deal with several core functionalities:
- a design tool to easily define output layout and formatting.
- a focus on documents, forms or labels as the design goal.
- a mechanism for data transformation and normalization.
- an engine for the creation of the desired output (in whatever format is required).
- facilities for managing the delivery of the output to its final destination.
- the scope to encompass all of the types of output and destinations that organizations require.
At first blush, DocOrigin and BIP both tackle this set of requirements. However, they take very different approaches to solving these needs and, as a result, are actually quite distinct as to how solutions are implemented and which possibilities are practical.
Compare and Contrast
DocOrigin is a highly integrated, powerful, and easy-to-use application that is separate from the originating application. As such, it provides an application-independent architecture and a comprehensive set of tools that allows organizations to define and manage all of their DOM needs from start to finish. DocOrigin provides a single Design software solution which allows your team to design forms, complex documents, forms and labels with a single solution. In addition, DocOrigin not only supports Oracle and JD Edwards software, it works with all business software. Now you have one solution that provides everything needed to design and generate mission critical information on paper or electronic.
BIP is middle-ware designed by Oracle to standardize basic output management across their large portfolio of applications and suites. It also is the foundation for interactive BI query capabilities, giving experienced users (i.e. those knowledgeable in SQL, their specific application data, and report query techniques) access to query ERP data in an interactive fashion.
Next Generation Focus
This different focus – comprehensive output management vs. standardization across application suites – leads to distinct differences in these products in terms of how they are used, how they are set up and configured, how they operate, and their suitability to specific tasks. DocOrigin provides several critical functional areas, such as form design, flexibility, access to data, licensing and others. That will be explored in coming posts in our blog.

In 1998 the US Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act to require Federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities. Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities and to encourage development of technologies that will help achieve these goals. The law applies to all Federal agencies when they develop, procure, maintain or use electronic and information technology. Under Section 508 (794d), agencies must give disabled employees and members of the public access to information that is comparable to the access available to others.
This requirement is being extended to include all public agencies that interface with the public.
