Keeping up with our E-Business Suite technology stack roadmap can be challenging. Regular readers of this blog know that we certify new combinations and versions
of Oracle products with the E-Business Suite every few weeks. We also update our certification plans and roadmap as new third-party products like Microsoft Office 2010 and Firefox are announced or released. Complicating matters further, various Oracle products leave Premier Support or are superceded by more-recent versions.
This constant state of change means that any static representation of our roadmap is really a snapshot in time, and a snapshot that might begin to yellow and fade fairly quickly. With that caveat in mind, here's this month's snapshot that I presented at the OAUG/Collaborate 2010 conference in Las Vegas last week:
What's in the latest roadmap?
How should I use this roadmap?
- Comparisons of support categories (Premier, Extended, Sustaining)
- Summaries of the latest database, Fusion Middleware, and E-Business Suite Lifetime Support Policies
- Desktop Client certifications (browsers, JREs, operating systems)
- Database Tier certifications
- Application Server Tier certifications
- External Integrations certifications
- Security-Related certifications
- "Other Cool Stuff" -- virtualization, clouds
The preceding is intended to outline our general product direction. It is intended for information purposes only, and may not be incorporated into any contract. It is not a commitment to deliver any material, code, or functionality, and should not be relied upon in making purchasing decision. The development, release, and timing of any features or functionality described for Oracle's products remains at the sole discretion of Oracle.
- Check the support status of your currently deployed techstack component versions
- Plan your upgrades to the next certified level
- Build a business case for switching from older technology to the latest technology (e.g. switching from Discoverer to Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition+)
- Seek clarification on open questions
