Canon Delivers New System Architecture with Oracle SOA Suite

Canon delivers on performance of a distributed network of millions of imaging systems with a new and much improved system architecture based on Oracle SOA Suite. The engineered systems advantage of leveraging Oracle SOA Suite on Exalogic Elastic Cloud and Exadata Database Machine has delivered on unparalleled scale, speed and simplicity. The new architecture dramatically improved time to process  an event from ½ second to 50 ms, improved throughput 4X to connect 50 million devices.

In this video testimonial, Greg Ryan, Senior Marketing Director, Canon Information and Imaging Solutions talks to us about the scale of this solution and how Oracle has delivered on the promise of Fast Data - delivering value on large volumes of events in real-time. This solution has formed the basis of Canon's Internet of Things strategy as they look to connect more devices to this network, as the millions of devices currently connected are just a fraction of what Canon is looking to manage.

Greg Ryan elucidates in this video testimonial how Canon's Imageware Remote Diagnostic System collects events from the installed base of multi-function printers (MFPs) to deliver on real-time actionable insight. Here are additional resources if you are interested in finding out more on the products that were used under the covers to deliver this solution:

Distributed Intelligence in IoT Deployments

The term Internet of Things or IoT brings to mind a futuristic H.G. Wells world where machines slowly begin to take over the world. Join Jai Suri, Director of Product Management for the Java Platform at Oracle as he delves into possibilities of this new reality with Demed L'her, VP of Product Management of Oracle SOA Suite. Dive into bridging the gap between devices and enterprise applications. Compare and contrast the differences in scale of data and transactions between the device and enterprise worlds. Join us in understanding the value of distributing processing power throughout the network and into the network edge as massive volumes of data are reduced with filtering and correlation to deliver on value, while optimizing network utilization.

Join Demed as he helps us understand use cases with the two versions of Oracle Event Processing which deliver on IoT – a datacenter version that runs on server class machines, and an embedded Java SE type low footprint device. In addition, geo-spatial capabilities in Oracle Event Processing lends a unique offering for location based geo-fencing that helps Oracle customers draw a pyramid map to detect when devices go in and out of zones.

Lastly, we discover how Oracle is helping reach a newer class of devices even lower than the one we currently operate on, as we capitalize on the new Java 8 launch.

Responding in Real-Time with Big Data

For an organization to respond in real-time it needs to acquire or develop systems that can respond in real-time. Such systems need to be able to rapidly determine that a response is required and determine also what the appropriate and relevant response should be—they need to decide when and how to act. These kinds of decision-making systems are known as Decision Management Systems. To ensure that a response is delivered in real-time, more event-centric Decision Management Systems are required

High-volume, high-speed front-line decisions must increasingly be made in real-time with big data and analytics that are actionable and operational. Oracle Event Processing and Oracle Real Time Decisions are core components of a solution that allows organizations to detect rapidly changing situations from massive volumes of high velocity data to make optimal, real-time business decisions.

Come to this webcast to hear James Taylor, CEO of Decision Management Solutions, discuss his latest research on why real-time responses must detect, analyze and act with greater automation.

Here is a white paper on this topic by James Taylor: Transform your business with Big Data (white paper)

Rise of the Mobile Machines - Oracle Reveals Strategy on Internet of Things

With the explosion of connected devices and the ubiquity of high speed wireless connectivity, Internet of Things takes on a new relevance. Machine to Machine (M2M) communication can change your game of operations and create opportunities for new services and revenue streams. Oracle’s platform for M2M called Device to Data Center (D2D) helps support the needs of the enterprise to leverage this new opportunity by gathering actionable insight from devices and respond right at the network edge.  The platform leverages multiple Oracle products to deliver a complete solution, including Oracle Event Processing (OEP)  on Oracle Java Embedded to make intelligent, real-time decisions while managing massive amounts of machine data on the fly.

Fast Data - delivering on real-time responsiveness with business insight, on large volumes of high velocity data from varied sources becomes a reality with Device to Data Center. Oracle's strategy to deliver on  Device to Data Center is revealed in the following webcast by Peter Utzschneider, VP of Product Management of Java.

Push Fast Data to the Edge

Oracle today announced the availability of Oracle Event Processing for Oracle Java Embedded, a smaller footprint version of Oracle Event Processing (OEP) tailored for deployment on gateways. This can change the game plan for your organization’s responsiveness by harnessing Fast Data.

With an increase in the number of mobile devices and the ubiquity of high speed connectivity, we are entering an era where organizations can change their game plan with responsiveness. There is an explosion of data generated by mobile devices – not just cell phones, but large volumes of data coming from implementations such as industrial and building control, e-health, smart grid and home automation that need support for edge devices like wireless modules for Machine to Machine communication (M2M) and environmental sensors. However to be responsive, this large volume of high velocity data from varied sources has to be converted to actionable insight. In addition this data loses relevance with time. Fast Data is taking meaningful action on this large volume of data as it gets generated.

Oracle Event Processing for Oracle Java Embedded allows embedding OEP on gateways. This allows embedding intelligence to filter and correlate the data as it occurs, as close to the devices as possible. Oracle Event Processing for Oracle Java Embedded will provide companies the ability to handle massive volume and growth of data coming from edge devices by processing data closer to the source.

In addition to this capacity to embed a lightweight event processing engine on gateways, OEP provides flexible deployment options: standalone, integrated as part of the Oracle SOA stack as well as on embedded devices. This gives you a versatile, high performing event processing engine that can be deployed just about anywhere to process fast data.

Embedded Oracle Event Processing makes Internet of Things a Reality

Just imagine equipping all objects in the world with a lightweight yet powerful complex event processing engine. It takes us a bit closer into that fascinating world of Artificial Intelligence, where machines can talk intelligently to each other. It makes it possible for inanimate objects to gain the power of discrimination, filtering and correlating Fast Data: large volumes of varied data, arriving at high velocity from different sources. A fork that helps you lose weight, luggage that texts you on being lost and why, a car that can drive itself; these futuristic and impractical sounding projects become more of a reality. It transforms the Internet of Things from science fiction to reality.

Java is fast-gaining as the preferred platform for embedded devices as it evolves into a more lightweight, yet high-performing language of choice, that maintains ease-of-use. Oracle Event Processing that runs on embedded Java brings practicality to projects that were merely a whimsy previously, bringing us closer to designing an M2M platform for a connected world.

Come hear how Oracle Event Processing can transform your M2M strategy into a reality at the Mobile World Congress.

Making Enterprises More Human: Removing the Complexity in Event Processing


Human beings have a very unique differentiation compared to all other living creatures. It is the power to discriminate, giving them freedom of choice. This is possible because humans minds are sophisticated and high performing event processing engines, constantly optimizing for survival and gain, while functioning in extremely complex scenarios.

Man creates an optimal environment for himself to thrive, by filtering and correlating a high volume of events from very disparate sources, across time and boundaries. In fact all types of events are incorporated as feedback through all senses, constantly gauging, judging, filtering and correlating events. For example consider what you do every morning: turn on the news for traffic re-routing to gauge if you will make it on time to a meeting, sanity-check your gas tank to know far you can go, stop to grab a bite when you see a coffee drive-through. And all this while driving, which in itself requires processing events arriving from other automobiles on the road, traffic conditions and regulations. Humans are designed to continuously filter, correlate and process events in real-time.

The one technology that is so unique in adding this human quality of discrimination to inanimate software and hardware systems, is referred to commonly as "Complex Event Processing". To the uninitiated, the term "Complex" can sound like the technology is difficult, when really it inidicates that the event processing can happen in very complex scenarios, much like humans. In fact, a good event processing solution would remove the complexity and interpret accurate meaning in seemingly unconnected events.

Event processing can add the power of discrimination, providing intelligence and a dynamic responsiveness to everything it pairs with. Added to Business Process Management (BPM), Event Processing can make business processes very responsive and dynamic, even capable of handling unexpected exceptions. Added to Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Event Processing can be a powerful ally in building a responsive IT infrastructure. Added to data integration, Event Processing can provide the capacity to discriminate against streams and volume of different kinds of data. The possibilities on what technologies Event Processing can be paired with are really limitless. When you want to think dynamic and add an edge to any technology solution, you want a good event processing engine added to your solution. 

Oracle Event Processing (OEP) is exactly this power of discrimination that can be added to any solution to result in extremely intelligent systems that respond in real-time. Keep your eyes peeled to hear about our new initiatives with OEP across our fusion middleware product lines in our upcoming release.

Oracle SOA Suite, the Most Capable Tool for Every Possible Integration Challenge

session ID: CON8601 - when: Monday, Oct. 1, 10:45am-11:45am - where: Moscone South 102

"Oracle SOA Suite, the Most Capable Tool for Every Possible Integration Challenge" is the name of the session I will be delivering at Oracle OpenWorld this year. I'm usually going for more subdued titles but decided to remove the gloves this year, at the risk of sounding arrogant! While we have a number of worthy competitors in various areas of integration no one can really compete with the breadth and reliability of Oracle SOA Suite.


This session is primarily intended for people who are not yet familiar with Oracle SOA Suite (i.e. if you are an existing customer your time might be better spent at some of the other sessions we have on the topic).

I will provide an overview of Oracle SOA Suite, the customers using it and the types of challenges they are solving with it: from integrating Oracle Applications (E-Business Suite, Siebel, PeopleSoft, RightNow, Taleo etc.) to third-party applications (did you know that over a third of our customers actually use us to integrate SAP?), mainframes and a variety of technologies. We will talk about some emerging trends and problems that our users are solving with the product: cloud integration, B2B consolidation and mobile-enablement. I will also briefly touch upon the exciting projects we are doing with Oracle Event Processing, in the domain of "Fast Data" and "Big Data".

Last but not least, I will be joined on stage by Venktesh Maudgalya, Director at Electronic Arts. Venktesh will bring his customer perspective and explain how EA leveraged Oracle SOA Suite to implement iHub, the massive integration hub that interconnects all their applications (E-BusinessSuite, Hyperion, Demantra, Peoplesoft, Salesforce.com, Kronos, Teradata, GXS etc.) and carries 3/4 of their revenue flows.

I just picked up my badge and will be kicking off the festivities tomorrow talking to partners in a pre-OOW briefing at the Oracle Headquarters - see you next week!

PS: if you're going to tweet about Oracle SOA Suite next week please make sure to use the #oraclesoa and #oow hashtags so that we can track and amplify your tweets!
