Viewlets for the Exalogic Templates for Siebel and E-Business Suite

A number of Applications virtual templates for Exalogic have been recently released. Amongst them are E-Business Suite and Siebel Templates. As part of the effort to support the pre-sales activities a recorded overview of the deployment of the templates have been prepared . These recordings or viewlets can be shown to customers as an introduction to virtualization in Exalogic: during the recordings we demonstrate how the templates can be downloaded, the Exalogic machine resources allocated and the templates deployed.

These videos are not in depth explanations but are designed to give the viewer a taste of what can be achieved. They can be used to open a discussion with customers about the ease of use/speed of deployment and general strategic direction Oracle is adopting to further simplify the adoption of Engineered systems amongst the Oracle applications customer base.

Alongside the recordings there is also a brief explanation of what is being shown to further allow the user to enhance any presentation that includes them. Please watch the viewlets and then have a read of the notes that accompany it and good luck using them!

Registered members of the community can download the Viewlets and Explanations from the Community Workspace here.(Remember that you need to register as a community member to have access to the workspace. Otherwise you will receive an error message)
