ArchBeat Link-o-Rama Top 10 for July 15-21, 2012

The Top 10 most popular items shared via my social networks for the week of July 15-21, 2012.

  1. Using Oracle Fusion Middleware targets with OUAF Based products in OEM 12c | Anthony Shorten
    "One of the advantages of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c is the ability to manage Oracle WebLogic directly from the console with or without the use of the Oracle WebLogic management packs," says Anthony Shorten. "Obviously customers can manage more with the packs but some basic administration and monitoring capabilities can be used from the basic Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c installation."
  2. Hate the player, not the game - or my case for Data Engineers | Dominic Delmolino
    "In an organization with responsive data engineers there shouldn’t be a need to 'get rid of the database,'” says Dominic Delmolino. "One of the best reasons to have a database is that it provides so many ways to build the different kinds of models and transform the data between them with minimal need for additional frameworks or mountains of custom code."
  3. Webcast: Introducing Identity Management 11g R2 - July 19
    Date: Thursday, July 19, 2012 Time: 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern Please join Oracle and customer executives for the launch of Oracle Identity Management 11g R2, and learn how it dramatically expands the reach of identity management to cloud and mobile environments.

  5. Business SOA: Thinking is dead | Steve Jones
    "Planning, architecture and design are being seen in parts of IT as bad things as a mentality develops around a concept that some how basic fundamentals such as TDD, contract design and doing things that are actually proven to work are in some way wrong," says Capgemini's Steve Jones. "Adoption of unproven technologies is rife as is the surprise when those technologies fail to deliver on the massively over hyped expectation and indeed fail to even come close to delivering at the level of dull old technologies that do the job but don't currently have the twitterati in thrall."
  6. Journey into the Cloud - Introduction | Tim Read
    "Don't be fooled into thinking this is a one-off trip, or something that must be rushed," says Tim Read. "Far from it. Think of it as a daily commute with familiar landmarks, traffic lights, and intersections along the way. As new roads are built or widened, you can take advantage of them to hasten your journey."
  7. Webcast: Lightweight Java EE Architectures with Adam Bien
    Don’t miss this Webcast as Java Champion architect Adam Bien offers his perspective on Spring 3 Framework and Java EE.

    Oracle ACE Director Tim Hall created this article as a companion to the presentation he has been giving on his OTN Tour of South America. He describes it as, "very light and devoid of technical information or vendor-specific bias."
  9. Think through your cloud plans -- or else | David Linthicum
    "There are two worlds" in IT, says David Linthicum. "One involves the hype and good feelings about next-gen IT, such as cloud computing, that tells us the technology itself will save us from the mistakes of the past. Then there's the world of planning, architecture, and design that makes the technology actually useful—despite IT's aversion to this crucial stage."
  10. Webcast: Exalogic 2.0 Launch
    Join Hasan Rizvi, Cliff Godwin, Wim Coekaerts and other key Oracle executives on July 25 for the launch of Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software 2.0. This interactive launch event will feature a panel discussion with Oracle executives and customer testimonials.
