Oracle announces SOA Suite 11g R1 (11.1.1.7.0) for healthcare integration

Oracle announces SOA Suite 11g R1 (11.1.1.7.0) for healthcare integration. It can be downloaded from SOA Suite for healthcare integration OTN download page. Some of main highlight for this healthcare release includes:

  • Ease of Installation: The user installation experience is simplified by introducing an automated healthcare post-install script. User need to install standard SOA Suite 11g R1(11.1.1.7.0) and then a post install script need to be invoked to enable all healthcare components.
  • Performance Optimization and Interface Sequencing: This release brings lot of performance enhancement by introducing additional knobs to tweak Engine, database and composite layer to achieve better throughput and response time . An additional sequencing option called Interface Sequencing is added which provides better throughput and scalability by reducing database interaction and sequencing check points. This is additional option on top of Component level sequencing.
  • UI Enhancements:

System Dashboards has been added for global view of status of healthcare system. It list all endpoints with their status, protocol details along with message count and queue count associated with endpoints. It provides additional system level data like most active endpoint, recent error trends etc.

The original dashboard is also enhanced to provide Compact Dashboard view to provide endpoint color coding status as small icons, for healthcare systems which have large set of endpoints.

The user provisioning for different roles to view payload etc can now be done through UI.

  • Web Services Support : This release provides web services support to exchange web-services (both for SOAP 1.0 and 1.1) based messages between endpoints. A new protocol ‘WS-HTTP’ is added in endpoint configurations in UI. The user can post SOAP message in Sync or Async Mode based upon configuration in the Endpoint.  All the OWSM policies available in Enterprise Manager are supported.

This release also provide additional document support for National Council for Prescription Drug Program ( NCPDP) and  Interchange level acknowledgement ( TA1) support for HIPAA 5010 use cases.

Check out  SOA Suite for healthcare integration (11.1.1.7.0) User Guide for more details.

Community Management: The Next Wave of SOA Governance and API Management

While SOA Governance, as a discipline, has been around for a number of years, not every company that embarks on the adoption of SOA has decided to embrace it. In some cases, the runtime management of service is implemented, but not the design-time aspects. Now, with the introduction of Cloud Computing and the proliferation of mobile devices, the “new” discipline of API Management is surfacing. This session explores why API Management has emerged, its relationship with SOA governance, and why both of these disciplines will ultimately take a page from the business-to-business world and evolve into a new discipline called “Community Management”.

Tim Hall, VP of Oracle Product Management discusses, compares and contrasts SOA Governance and API Management, explaining why he believes they will evolve into a new discipline called “Community Management”.

OOW 2013 speakers: maximize your selection chances

Oracle OpenWorld 2013 is approaching fast and the call for papers is now open: http://bit.ly/YbEURG (note that it will close on April 12th). Each year the event is growing larger and the paper selection process is becoming more and more competitive: many great submissions but only so many slots to fill! In the end this is for the better as this just raises the overall quality of the conference. It also means that you should pay extra attention when submitting your papers to ensure they get the attention they deserve.

Here are some tips to maximize your chances of selection:

  • We want to hear the voice of customers and end users above anything
    (i.e. if you are an Oracle partner or employee, try to co-present with a customer or at least secure their approval to use their name and specifics)
  • Focus on a specific problem or project and don't try to cover it all
    (vague and high-level abstracts with an endless laundry list of integrated systems tend to be eliminated first)
  • Provide specific details of the customer implementation
    (attendees want to learn something that will help them, not just listen to another fluffy marketing pitch. Integrated specific apps? Make sure to mention them.)
  • Provide concrete ROI metrics or other concrete measurement of the impact of the project (productivity, business, etc.)
  • Cover either a widespread problem or an innovative one with clear business impact
    (i.e. a clever rocket science project that dealt with an unusual project could make an interesting blog entry but probably not a great OOW session)
  • Touch upon one of the following topics that attract a lot of attention these days: 
    • Mobile enablement 
    • Fusion Applications integration 
    • Cloud integration
    • Deployment of SOA in virtualized environments (OVM)
    • B2B projects, especially replacement of legacy solutions (Sterling, Gentran, etc.)
    • Fast Data for innovative marketing or customer experience solutions

Hopefully this guidance will be useful. Feel free to comment and ask for more details.

I'm looking forward to your submissions and to seeing you in San Francisco in September!
