ArchBeat Link-o-Rama Top 10 for July 2012

The Top 10 most-viewed items shared via my social networks for July 2012.

  • 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.

  • 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."
  • 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."
  • 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."
  • 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."
  • Journey into the Cloud - Introduction | TimRead
    "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."
  • 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."
  • 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.)
  • Looking Towards the BI Apps 11g Part 1 : BI Apps 11g Product Roadmap | Mark Rittman

Adam will talk about how Java EE 6 creates modern, lightweight architectures for enterprise Java.
