ArchBeat Link-o-Rama Top 10 for July 8-15, 2012

Happy Monday!

Here are the Top 10 most popular items shared via my social networks for the week of July 8-15, 2012.

  1. The first IT Architecture Certification from Oracle University: Oracle IT Architecture Release 3 Essentials
    The first Oracle IT Architecture certification, Oracle IT Architecture Release 3 Essentials, is now in general availability from Oracle University. The certification covers the Oracle Reference Architecture material published under the IT Strategies from Oracle library and includes Oracle Reference Architecture Overview, Application Infrastructure, Security, Software Engineering, Service-Oriented Integration, Management and Monitoring, Service Orientation, and User Interaction.
  2. Simplifying OIM 11g Series (Chapter One) | Alex Lopez
    This post by Fusion Middleware A-Team blogger Alex Lopez is the first in a series covering "the design of tools that have the common goal of simplifying or enhancing the functionality provided by OIM 11g." This article this focuses on the design of "a framework that allows business users to define provisioning processes that include approvals, sophisticated approval request routing and advanced user interface customization capabilities."
  3. Opportunities in Cloud Computing | Oracle Certification
    "Cloud computing is set up to make life extremely simple for end-users, but the model pushes the complexity to back-end systems," says Paul Sorensen. "These complex systems require very highly-skilled IT professionals...to successfully develop, implement, administer and maintain them."
  4. Free e-book: Cloud Architecture for Dummies
    Learn how to architect and model your cloud implementation to drive efficiency and leverage economies of scale with "Cloud Architecture for Dummies," a free Oracle e-book. (Registration required.)
  5. Cloud computing moves from fad to foundation | David Linthicum
    "When enterprises make cloud computing work, they view the application of the technology as a trade secret of sorts, so there are no press releases or white papers," says David Linthicum. "Indeed, if you see one presentation around a successful cloud computing case study, you can bet you're not hearing about 100 more."
  6. Multi-Tenancy and Other Useless Discussions | Meg Bear
    "If your problem is in the database, you would naturally see multi-tenancy as a great solution," says Oracle Cloud Social Platform VP Meg Bear. "But if you happen to be a database provider and you happen to have a modern application architecture, then optimizing by putting everyone in a shared database becomes a less valid conclusion."
  7. Oracle VM VirtualBox virtual appliance images for Oracle VM 3.1.1 server and Manager | Wim Coekaerts
    Thanks to Wim Coekaerts, Oracle VM VirtualBox appliances for Oracle VM Manager now contain the latest release+patch Oracle VM Manager 3.1.1 build 365. Also new is Oracle VM Server 3.1.1 build 365, a new preconfigured server setup.
