SOA & Oracle Fusion Middleware
Articles on Oracle Fusion Middleware such as Oracle BPEL PM, Oracle Enterprise Service Bus, Oracle Business Rules, Web Service Manager and Service Oriented Architecture in general.
For me this year’s Open World has three main themes: Community, Cloud and Mobile.
Although actually it included a fourth theme: the America’s Cup. The fabulous comeback of Team America and the spectacular sailing lead to an extra vibe during the conference. And although the media footage provided the best way to view the races, nothing beats the experience of standing ashore and watching the boats ‘fly by’ in real life.
Unfortunately the sailing also disrupted Larry’s keynote about the cloud but fortunately Thomas Kurian did an excellent job on that one. For me that keynote was one of the most interesting of the conference because it provided an overview of the big ambitions of Oracle for the clouds. A bit to my surprise, it also included an announcement by Microsoft about the availability of the Oracle Database, Oracle Weblogic and Java (either on Windows or Linux) in the Microsoft Azure cloud.
The cloud offerings are still increasing and now encompass a clear SAAS, PAAS and IAAS strategy. Fusion Applications modules like Human Capital Management, CRM and ERP and others are (or will become) available as Software Services, supplemented with social services. The database, More >
OOW13: summarizing one week and 2000 sessions in 3 hours and a bit – the yearly AMIS OOW Review session – 10th October0
On Thursday 10th of October, the 12 man strong AMIS delegation at Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne 2013 will present its findings in a 3 hour session at AMIS HQ in Nieuwegein, The Netherlands.

In this article a second brain dump with observations from the Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne conferences. These are fairly raw notes – primarily for my own consumption. They may be useful to you as well.Dual Format In-Memory Database

During this week’s Oracle OpenWorld Conference, we were given some sneak peeks into the short term future of the Oracle SOA Suite. During various roadmap sessions, on the demo grounds as well as in the keynote session by Thomas Kurian (the replay of which you can see here: http://medianetwork.oracle.com/video/player/2687033686001), new features were described and demonstrated, allowing us to get a fairly good overview of what is going to come for SOA Suite – later in 2013 and sometime in 2014 (probably the first half of that year).
The SOA Suite plays an important part in the three themes Thomas Kurian set down for the Fusion Middleware suite of products: support for mobility, cloud and business user empowerment.
Some of the highlighted new aspects of Oracle SOA Suite are:
- Adapters to connect from on-premise to in-the-cloud – specifically targeting SalesForce, RightNow and also providing an SDK to create custom integrations into the cloud (the first cloud adapters will be released on 11g, before the end of the year)
- Mobile enablement by exposing RESTful services that communicate using JSON as well as adding the capability to call out to such services (12c functionality)
- Enhanced More >
OOW13: What questions to get answered and plans to see evolved at this year’s Oracle OpenWorld Conference0
As I am about to start my ninth Oracle OpenWorld Conference, I am wondering what this year’s conference will have in store for me. My schedule is largely filled up, I know who I am going to meet, where I have to speak and where I need to go. Now I also try to create an overview of what questions I would like to get answered during this conference, what topics I – and my 11 colleagues from AMIS who are also attending the conference – should cover in our explorations, report and presentation after OOW. During the AMIS Oracle OpenWorld Review session – Thursday 10th of October – we will answering most of these questions in our presentation at AMIS HQ (sign up here: http://www.amis.nl/nl-NL/evenementen/technologie-evenementen/oow-review).
(note: this is the list I put together before hearing any announcements or learning of any inside stories. Later today I will learn such information under embargo and then I could no longer honestly speculate of course)

Op 22 september begint in San Francisco de Oracle OpenWorld: hét internationale evenement waar Oracle haar productstrategie presenteert en Oracle-specialisten ervaringen uitwisselen. Naast Oracle OpenWorld wordt ook de JavaOne georganiseerd, internationaal trefpunt voor de Java-community.
AMIS heeft de traditie om uitgebreid verslag te doen van beide conferenties. Dat doen we dit jaar op donderdag 10 oktober. Voor het achtste achtereenvolgende jaar vindt dan de Oracle OpenWorld Review plaats. Medewerkers van AMIS die in San Francisco op het podium staan, presenteren en analyseren de opvallendste trends, thema’s en verwachtingen voor de toekomst op verschillende technologieterreinen. We laten korte demo’s zien van interessante producten en technologie, geven ons eigen commentaar en er is alle gelegenheid om vragen te stellen en de discussie aan te gaan.
Deelname aan de Oracle OpenWorld Review sessie is gratis. Vanaf 16:30 uur bent u van harte welkom en om 17:00 uur starten we met de bijeenkomst. Er is slechts plaats voor 80 personen. Meld je daarom snel hier aan!
