February In Review
By Richard Bingham-Oracle on Mar 03, 2014
- We created new whitepapers on Groovy and Expression Language to help you get started with your customization scripting.
- Check out the new posts from both the "Integrating With..." and the "Fusion Concepts" series, covering even more technologies and capabilities.
- February saw a continued evolution of our YouTube channel, taking it to now 79 how-to videos and over 11,000 views.
From Other Teams
- The SaaS Release8 readiness page on cloud.oracle.com was updated with many great resources, including Release Content Documents, What's New documentation, and the great Release 8 Spotlight series.
- Similarly the Applications Customer Connect community now provides a great compendium of Release 8 links, and February saw some interesting blog posts of their own regarding HCM Cloud Patching, Analytics for CRM, and Web Services for Sales Cloud. If you're not yet a member, consider registering.
- The Oracle AppsUX team - the ones behind the Simplified UI - provided a new Oracle AppsCast podcast explaining the extensibility options in this tool. These podcasts are great to download to get quick feature overviews with some nice personal insights.
- The Oracle A-Team (architecture) blog had a well-illustrated technical post on connecting with Fusion Applications using secure asynchronous web services. This is great for understanding the security components, processes, and configurations involved in integration.
- The Oracle Technology Network (OTN) community provided some interesting videos of the presentations from their Oracle ADF Development: Web, Mobile and Beyond session taken from the OTN Virtual Develop Day.
Events and Announcements
- Right at the end of January, Oracle CloudWorld came home to San Fransisco after a very successful worldwide run.
- The new Oracle HCMWorld conference ran February 4-6 in Las Vegas, featuring none other than Larry Ellison. See more here.
- Also new, the Value Chain Summit ran 3-5 Feb and featured Mark Hurd offering organizations insight into how they can transform their supply chains into information-driven value chains.
- In case you missed it, Oracle Support Communities has now switched to the same forum system as the one Dev Relations has been using to help customers for some time. This means fewer systems to use and more solutions in one central place.
