ArchBeat Link-o-Rama Top 10 for August 5-11, 2012

The Top 10 most popular items shared through my social networks for the week of August 5-11, 2012.

  1. Leveraging Governance to Sustain Enterprise Architecture Efforts
    SOA, Cloud computing, Big Data, Mobile computing, BOYD and other factors are already rearranging the enterprise IT landscape in much the same way Godzilla rearranges Tokyo. The potential for these technologies is incredible. But with each new technological innovation, "it is critical to reevaluate relevant EA governance," says Eric Stephens. "Otherwise, the architectural fragmentation that exists with legacy technology will manifest itself by an order of magnitude with newer generations of technology." More insight from Eric in this white paper.
  2. Manuel Rosa - SOA Governance at EDP: A Global Energy Company @ SOA, Cloud Service Technology Symposium 2012
    Thinking about registering for the SOA, Cloud, and Service Technology Forum, September 24-25 in London? You'll find a big fat discount code at the top of this recent post on the Oracle SOA & BPM Partner Community Blog. Who doesn't love a discount?
  3. Cloud and business transformation: this time, it's different
    "The real revolution is only just begun," says Joe McKendrick. "At the high end, private and hybrid clouds are shifting the business models of many non-IT corporations and organizations, turning them into technology or cloud providers themselves. At the lower end, we have a whole generation of startups and small businesses that are built entirely on the cloud. In between, we have 'loosely coupled' corporations that essentially serve as brokers of services they get from somewhere else and deliver to their customers."
  4. Webcast: Drill Down on Disaster Recovery
    In this webcast, Oracle's Joseph Meeks and Margaret Hamburger discuss key steps you should take to significantly reduce the risk of downtime while protecting your business data with Oracle Maximum Availability Architecture. Thursday, August 16, 2012. 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET.
  5. My Clustering Cheet Sheet | Rick Ramsey
    The question is: "Why would somebody complicate our sysadmin lives by suggesting we install Oracle RAC on Oracle Solaris Cluster? What would that be, highly-available high availability?" Rick "OTN Garage" Ramsey has the answer.
  6. Now Available: Oracle GlassFish Server 3.1.2.2
    GlassFish Server 3.1.2.2 is a microrelease that addresses feedback from the GlassFish community to improve the developer experience by resolving NetBeans bug 211962, JAX-WS issue JAX_WS-1059, and GlassFish Server issue GLASSFISH-18446.
  7. Simplifying OIM 11g (Chapter Two)
    The second article in Oracle Fusion Middleware A-Team blogger Alex Lopez's series on tips and tricks for simplifying the use of advanced features in Oracle Identity Manager 11g.
  8. OTN Architect Day: Boston
    Oracle Technology Network Architect Day is coming to Boston, September 12, 2012. The event will be held at the Boston Marriott Burlington (One Burlington Mall Road, Burlington, MA 01803), and features a full day of sessions with technical experts, along with plenty of opportunity to interact with your peers. The event is free, but seating is limited, so register now.
  9. Getting Oracle artifacts into a Maven environment
    "Maven provides the ability to load any artifact into a Maven repository and to give it a set of coordinates," says Fusion Middleware A-Team blogger Mark Nelson. "This means that you can easily add the Oracle provided artifacts to your own Maven repository, or to a shared repository in your environment (e.g. a Maven Repository Manager)."
  10. Quick introduction of what and why of Oracle Database Edition Based Redefinition
    "Availability is a highly desirable aspect of Fusion Middleware application," says Oracle ACE Director Lucas Jellema. "Planned downtime therefore sounds quite silly. However, the introduction of changes to applications has typically been associated with the roll out and redeployment of the application causing disruption of service - through loss of existing conversations and unavailability during the deployment process. Several approaches and mechanisms are available in the Oracle stack that will help substantially reduce the loss of uptime because of changes to applications."

ArchBeat Link-o-Rama for 2012-08-08

Thought for the Day

"At first sight, the idea of any rules or principles being superimposed on the creative mind seems more likely to hinder than to help, but this is quite untrue in practice. Disciplined thinking focuses inspiration rather than blinkers it."
