OpenWorld Recap - Oracle Cloud Application Foundation with WebLogic, Coherence, and more….

Interest in Cloud and Mobility drove significant focus on Oracle Cloud Application Foundation products at this year’s Oracle OpenWorld . In case you missed it, here is a recap:

Oracle WebLogic Server received significant limelight in Executive Vice President Thoman Kurian’s keynote -- The Oracle Cloud Platform: Database as a Service. Java as a Service. Complementing the existing Oracle Cloud Platform Services, the new Oracle Java as a Service provides full control of dedicated Oracle WebLogic Server clusters, supports any Java application, and gives users greater flexibility and choice over their services.

In the classic roadmap session by CAF vice president of product management Mike Lehmann, Mike focused on the recent 12.1.2 release. The session provided insights into how Oracle is evolving this infrastructure to be the next-generation application foundation for its customers to build on in a private cloud setting, Oracle's vision, product plans, and roadmap for this server infrastructure, and how it will be used in the rapidly maturing cloud infrastructure space. We hope the presentation helped you make key decisions about running your enterprise applications on Oracle's enterprise Java server foundation.

Oracle Coherence provided a many sessions at OpenWorld, focused around improving the customer experience with real-time data processing and application scalability to meet mobile and cloud demands. Many customers were excited to learn that Coherence can now update the data cache in real-time, delivering on the expectations of instantaneous updates. All sessions were well-attended, with several customers noting that the 12c release of Coherence was helping them solve strategic problems for both their organization and their own customers.

Developers, Mobile and Cloud!

Chris Tonas kicked off exciting development trends in his General Session “Emerging Trends in Application Development” which covered Oracle’s perspective in addressing the development opportunities in mobile and cloud environments. Mobile continues to be a dominant topic and Chris discussed real-world applications built with Oracle ADF Mobile, a Java based hybrid-mobile framework that helps Java developers build hybrid-mobile apps for iOS and Android from one code base. Java’s mantra to write once, deploy to many – lives on in the mobile arena!

Furthering Oracle’s focus on mobile and cloud computing trends, Chris introduced Oracle Mobile Cloud Services, a mobile backend as a service (MBaaS) that helps mobile app developers readily create more powerful, sophisticated applications that tap into enterprise backend services and simplify enterprise mobile connectivity.
