Oracle OpenWorld is a monster event – 10Ks of attendees, thousands of sessions and 100Ks of private conversations that all help convey and define the message about Oracle’s strategy and the roadmap for its close to 4000 thousand products. Concurrent with OOW is the JavaOne conference that – at a slightly smaller scale – does the same thing for the world of the Java platform, the JVM and the Java community.
AMIS each year sends a substantial delegation to attend and contribute to the conference. We speak in many sessions, ask questions in even more and do our utmost to gather information, digest it and distill the real meaning and relevant details. We have just completed our yearly review of the Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne 2013 conferences: a 60-page PDF document that answers the ultimate question about life, the universe and everything [Oracle].
This white paper describes the major transitions that the industry at large and Oracle in specific is going through. It explains what these transitions mean to Oracle, cause in terms of product evolution and will result in for the users. The major product announcements are listed and commented on. The roadmaps for the most relevant More >

All software from Oracle should run both on premise as well as in the cloud. Moving components from on-premise to cloud or vice versa should be painless: the infrastructure in the cloud and the platform in the cloud should be the same (so far as possible) as on premise.
And here is the current status of (planned) cloud offerings:
Read on for three major announcements around the Oracle Cloud:
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 >
As I was wandering (and wondering) around the demo grounds at Oracle OpenWorld, I bumped into a booth demonstrating the upcoming Oracle Cloud Document Service. This service is yet to be announced sometime later this week. It is a SaaS solution that can be used stand alone or can be integrated with other services. Edit: by now the Oracle Document Cloud Service has been announced in Thomas Kurian’s keynote seesion:
The core of this offering is the ability to store in and expose documents from a cloud based content system. Through a web (browser) based interface, a native app for Android and iOS and a desktop client (agent) – very similar to Dropbox or Box.com – documents can be uploaded, downloaded, searched for and versioned. A version history is kept for documents and older versions can be accessed. Documents are associated with access privileges – at various levels. Public links to individual documents (and folders?) can be handed out. The desktop client can synchronize all content or selected folders.
Some capabilities will be provided to synchronize between an on premise WebCenter Content repository and the cloud based Document Service.
