WebLogic 12c Distinctive Recipes: Architecture, Development and Administration

Dr. Frank Munz, one of our most esteemed Oracle Aces, has just released an updated book on Oracle WebLogic 12c, which contains more than 130 additional pages, half a dozen new webcasts and more than 16 new or rewritten recipes.
From the book abstract:
Imagine you need to know about a problem with your car's engine. You could plough through the 1000-page manual. Or you could chat to the mechanic over a cup of coffee. That's WebLogic 12c Advanced Recipes. It's WebLogic for software architects, administrators and developers. For people like you who know quite a bit about WebLogic. What you don't want is the typical 'recipe book' full of screenshots. Click here. Click there. Do this. Do that. That's WebLogic by numbers. What you really want are the things you won't find in the manual, like recommendations, discussions, best practices, deployable projects, webcast videos and directions on when to use a feature - and when not to. With all this and more, this book is the perfect complement to official courses and manuals. In short, this gem of a book is almost as good as attending one of Frank's renowned workshops.

BA, the German federal employment agency, ensures labor market services availability and performance

Bundesagentur für Arbeit (BA), the German federal employment agency, is the leading provider of labor-market services in Germany. With more than 100,000 employees, BA is the largest German government agency and one of the largest employers in the country.

Reliance Commercial Finance Accelerates Time-to-Market, Improves IT Staff Productivity by 70%

Reliance Commercial Finance provides loans for real estate, commercial and private vehicles, construction equipment, and infrastructure to more than 70,000 customers, including businesses and individuals. The company has an operational presence that spans 66 locations in India, and it is one of the fasting growing nonbanking financial companies in the country.

With more than 2,000 users accessing the company’s core applications every day, the legacy IT infrastructure was struggling to process more than 6,000 daily transactions, especially during peak periods, such as the last five days of each month. It was also time-consuming and costly to manage and track customer-loan applications and approvals across multiple systems. The legacy system increased customer churn and time to market. 

To address these issues, the company implemented Oracle WebLogic Suite and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud to ensure high-performance, high availability, and scalability for its core applications. It also enabled seamless integration with Oracle Exadata Database Machine. These implementations accelerated loan transaction speed by 30% and increased IT staff members’ productivity by 70%. In addition, the financial institution improved its competitiveness by accelerating the customer loan approval process by 3x and slashing new application deployments from eight weeks to one day, thereby increasing customer satisfaction. Complete details of Reliance Commercial Finance's use case can be found here.
