Here are the winners:

Telefonica Movistar Mexico

Telefonica Movistar Mexico has built a cutting edge Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE) software platform using re-usable Web services built on top Oracle SOA Suite on Exalogic to integrate with legacy systems. They also leveraged Oracle SOA Suite for a new self-service mobile application, demonstrating their responsiveness to rapidly evolving business demands. The resulting solution helped Telefónica Movistar Mexico achieve a 20% annual ROI and a 40% reduction in Time to Market when compared with their other initiatives.

Wyndham Exchange & Rentals (WER)

Wyndham Exchange & Rentals (WER) created a 360-degree experience for their customers leveraging e-commerce, mobile commerce, social networking, and cloud.

The resulting solution powered by Oracle Fusion Middleware has helped WER achieve a 30% annual ROI, reduce time to market from 12 Months to 12 Weeks, and launch a mobile version of the site which now contributes more than 6% of the overall customer traffic.

Oracle Open World 2013 Wednesday: Hands-On Introduction to Integration and Oracle SOA Suite

This year's Oracle SOA Suite hands on lab offers three different options, dependant on your level of expertise and interest.

If you're new to SOA Suite, you should pick option 1 and learn how to build a SOA composite from the ground up, including a BPEL process, adapters, business rules and human task. The end result will be a purchase order process to be deployed through JDeveloper and tested in Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control.

If you're already experienced in SOA Suite, lab option 2 walks you through setting up the components that will allow you to utilize continuous integration with your SOA Suite 11g development projects.

For those who want to learn more about security in the context of SOA Suite, option 3 shows you how to secure WebLogic services and SOA composites using Oracle Web Services Manager (OWSM).

Hope to see you there!
