ArchBeat Link-o-Rama Top 10 for August 12-19, 2012

The Top 10 most popular items as shared via the OTN ArchBeat Facebook page for the week of August 12-19, 2012.

  1. Virtualizing Oracle E-Business Suite through Oracle VM | Kai Yu
    "To leverage Oracle VM, the existing Oracle E-Business systems on physical servers need to be migrated to the virtual machines and a new development needs to start on the VMs," says Oracle ACE Director Kai Yu. In this post he shares the systematic migration method that won him the 2011 OAUG Innovator of Year Award.
  2. Beach Reading for Software Developers
    Calling all solutions architects, software developers, and other IT pros. Summertime is vacation time, and I'd bet that even when you're all slathered up in sunscreen and chillaxin' at the beach, pool, or on your patio, daddio, your insatiable hunger for more technical knowledge doesn't wither in the heat. What technical books did you read (or plan to read) while soaking up the sun this summer?
  3. Oracle Technology Network Architect Day: Los Angeles - October 25
    OTN Architect Day rolls into Los Angeles with rich schedule of sessions, panel discussions, and roundtables focused on cloud computing, engineered systems, service oriented architecture, and more.

  5. WebCenter Portal & Spaces Boilerplate template and overview to responsive design | John Sim
    "With the majority of users using their mobile devices or even TVs...to access the web we need to accommodate for our audience and provide a good user experience," says John Sim. "One of the ways this can be achieved is through responsive design – although you need to look carefully at your site to see if responsive is the right approach and provides the correct user journey for your audience." Sim shows you how to get there using Oracle WebCenter Portal Spaces.
  6. OTN Architect Day Coast-to-Coast
    OTN Architect Day goes bi-coastal, with events in Boston on Sept 12 and Los Angeles on Oct 25. Registration is free, and you get 8 hours of technical sessions, panel discussions, roundtables... and a free lunch. Satisfy your appetite for expert insight on cloud computing, service orientation, engineered systems—and stuff your face at the buffet. Does it get any better?
  7. Oracle Technology Network | Architect Community
    This week's features on the Oracle Technology Network Architect homepage include a new article on Oracle WebLogic RESTful Management Services, a new white paper on Leveraging Governance to Sustain Enterprise Architecture Efforts, and part 3 of a 4-part conversation with SOA guru Thomas Erl and Oracle SOA experts Tim Hall and Demed L'Her about the growing interest in IT architect training and certification despite the ongoing animosity toward architects.
  8. Automatically Disable Proxy Service to avoid overloading OSB | A-Team - SOA
    Have questions about how to avoid overloading Oracle Service Bus if an endpoint becomes temporarily unreachable? You're not alone, which is why Oracle SOA A-Team blogger Jian Liang has published this very detailed post.
  9. DevOps:Evolving to Handle Disruption
    "Until recently," says JP Morgenthal, "IT was relegated to a support role speaking only when spoken to versus driving strategy. However, in the face of the emergence of consumerization of IT, mobile computing, big data, cloud computing, and a changing economic landscape, a traditional IT organizational structure is now an albatross around IT’s neck."
  10. Wake up, IT: Even CFOs see value in the cloud
    "The reality is clear," according to Infoworld's David Linthicum. "Unlike other technology trends, which largely confused the leaders in the boardroom, cloud computing has enjoyed strong PR among those who manage the money. That's good news for IT organizations interested in trying to get the promised value from the cloud—the people who hold the purse strings will likely support the creation of an initial cloud computing strategy and the first cloud computing projects."

Thought for the Day

"The programmer, like the poet, works only slightly removed from pure thought-stuff. He builds his castles in the air, from air, creating by exertion of the imagination. Few media of creation are so flexible, so easy to polish and rework, so readily capable of realizing grand conceptual structures."
