  1. Simplifying Enterprise Mobile Integration | Mala Ramakrishnan
    "There are two ways to developing an enterprise mobile strategy with SOA -- controlling the end-to-end integration experience from the enterprise to the hand held, or exposing enterprise assets through APIs for third parties to build out mobile solutions," says Mala Ramakrishnan.

Podcast: Stop Worrying and Learn to Love Disruptive Tech

The latest OTN ArchBeat podcast series grew out of a brief Twitter conversation.

Several weeks ago I noticed a couple of tweets between Oracle ACE Directors Floyd Teter and Ron Batra, in which they mentioned a great conversation they had had about disruptive technologies. I cajoled them into extending that conversation for a podcast, focusing on the impact of disruptive technologies on enterprise IT and on architects. They agreed, and asked to pull fellow Oracle ACE Director Basheer Khan into the mix.

These three gentlemen are architects, veterans in enterprise IT, and each brings a unique perspective to this discussion. I had fun picking their brains, and I'm sure you'll enjoy the conversation.

The Panelists

(Listed alphabetically)
  • Ron Batra, Oracle ACE Director and the director of Cloud Product Solutions at AT&T
    Twitter Blog LinkedIn Oracle ACE Director
  • Basher Khan, Oracle ACE Director and the founder of KNEX Technology
    Twitter Blog LinkedIn Oracle ACE Director
  • Floyd Teter, Oracle ACE Director and a solution architect specializing in ERP and Oracle Applications
    Twitter Blog LinkedIn Oracle ACE Director

The Conversation

  • Listen to Part 1: Understanding the difference between technologies that disrupt and technologies that sustain innovation, and acting on that knowledge.
  • Listen to Part 2: The past as a bridge to the future: the increasing importance of service orientation in cloud-based, highly mobile world.
  • Listen to Part 3: Rolling with the changes: think big, start small, and learn fast in order to turn trends into professional evolution.

    Hot Topics for the OTN Article You're Going to Write - Round 2

    If you've been thinking about writing a technical article for OTN, one thing that can dramatically help your chances of getting published is to write an article on an in-demand topic.

    In a previous post I shared a list of suggested article topics covering WebLogic specific features and open standards compliance. This time around, here's a list of additional WebLogic article topic suggestions covering development frameworks, IDEs, and testing:

    • Using WebLogic 12c with Eclipse
    • Using WebLogic 12c with NetBeans
    • Exploring the Deployment Options from IDEs
    • Using Spring Batch with WebLogic 12c
    • Using the Jersey Test Framework for Lightweight Testing
    • Using Sonar with WLS for Code Quality Observation
    • How to run Avatar on WebLogic 12c (12.1.3)
    • Configuring SLF4J with WebLogic Server
    • Configuring Log4J with WebLogic Server
    • Configuring Logback with WebLogic Server

    If you want to tackle one of these subjects, contact me at bob DOT rhubart AT oracle DOT com, or leave a comment on this post so we can discuss next steps.

    Of course, if you have an idea for an article that isn't on this list, no worries. I would still like to hear from you.
