In the News: CFO as a Technology Evangelist?

What comes to mind when you hear the word CFO?  Historically, CFOs have often been thought of as individuals who deeply involved in battling costs, economic volatility and economic complexity in their company.  However, there is a shift underway in the role of the CFO.  Oracle and Accenture co-sponsored a global study with Longitude Research entitled, "Empowering Modern Finance: The CFO as Technology" which involved 1,275 CFOs, senior finance executives and line of business executives from organizations around the world across multiple industries.  In a nutshell, the conclusion is that the modern CFO is not just battling The Street, grappling with internal organizational challenges but is also a technology evangelist who recognizes the value of digital and cloud technologies for the finance function.  Don't take this the wrong way -- there is still a gap between ambition and reality.  However, finance departments are recognizing the need for cloud capabilities to do a better job of budgeting, planning and forecasting.  To read more about this interesting study and its findings click here

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why do we need a SOA Developer Virtual Machine?

Virtual Machines (VM) play an important role in increasing developer productivity; saving hours, if not days, of provisioning effort in standing up a fully functional, configured Fusion Middleware platform for testing and evaluation. Think of it as your very own Platform as a Service (PaaS) on your laptop/desktop!

What can I use the VM for?

A developer VM can prove useful for a variety of reasons: quick internal demos, proof of concepts, testing etc. For those new to Oracle SOA or BPM Suite, it can serve as a powerful tool to learn these technologies, which is why it is very popular for developer learning and training sessions. In fact, the VM includes pre-configured lab artifacts - "PO Processing" and "Sales Quote" - that are used in Oracle instructor-led training sessions and in the "Getting Started" books on Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle BPM Suite.  

What benefits does the VM provide beyond simply installing the Oracle SOA Suite?

For enterprise development, installation of Oracle SOA Suite (or any single piece of software for that matter) is only a fraction of the overall effort needed to build an end-to-end configured development environment. Typical effort in standing up an integrated software stack on a "bare-metal" would involve the following provisioning tasks:

  • Create base image: Install supported version of the Linux OS e.g. Oracle Linux, Ubuntu, EC2 AMIs etc.
  • Setup base image: Security policies, firewalls, port forwarding rules, hard drive partitions on block storage
  • Install pre-requisite software: Java, Database
  • Install Fusion Middleware: SOA Suite, BPM Suite, Web Center and any other modules, run RCU with correct schema names and passwords
  • Setup Fusion Middleware: WLS domain with correct templates needed for SOA+BPM+BAM+Service Bus+WebCenter
  • Configure Modules: Association between BPM and WebCenter Content/Portal with the correct security setup 
  • Install additional tools/software: JDeveloper IDE, extensions
  • Optimize the environment: WLS console properties, front-end host, external listen address etc. for your network topology
  • Create accounts: Seed demo user accounts with email addresses (or other user accounts)

While you can always automate the above-mentioned steps, having a pre-provisioned DevOps style machine image can help you reduce development costs. It can get you from zero to a fully working SOA environment in minutes, on any developer's laptop. The benefits go beyond simply time to provision, it allows you to do more with less resources. For example, the VM allows developers to quickly switch between multiple running instances, each testing a new feature or version without the need for additional hardware.

We sincerely hope you enjoy using this VM and would love to hear your feedback!

Your Enterprise Mobile Strategy

Posting on behalf of Martin Jarvis, Senior Director, Fusion Middleware Market Development

For many enterprises Mobility is rapidly becoming a strategic issue. The way in which you interact with both your customers and you employees via their smart phone or tablet can have dramatic impact on the business. Much has been written about the importance of developing a Mobile Strategy unique to your organizations needs and aspirations, but what exactly does a mobile strategy look like?

Oracle has worked with many customers to help them maximize the benefits from deploying Enterprise Mobile solutions. Through this experience we have developed an 8 point domain model to ensure the customer’s mobile strategy covers the key subject areas: 



Alongside the Mobile Strategy it’s important to plan a roadmap that will take you from where you are now to a point where you are fully exploiting the benefits of enterprise mobility.  We divide the roadmap into three distinct phases, starting at “App Fast” getting the quickest possible returns from implementing the strategy, through being “Mobile Ready” to finally becoming a true “Connected Enterprise”.



Since developing this approach to Mobile Strategy we have worked with a number of customers to help them get started on their own mobile strategy using this model. We generally start the process with a half-day Mobile Strategy Workshop involving the key stakeholders from the customer’s IT, enterprise architects and lines of business management. Together we go through the elements of the strategy, facilitating discussion and capturing key points. We also present Oracle’s Mobile Strategy and look to align it to the customer’s requirements.   Feedback from customers who have been through the workshop has been very positive and all have found it a worthwhile and valuable experience. After the workshop we consolidate all the points captured into a report, which is provided to the customer.

If you are interested in learning more about how we can help you develop your own mobile strategy please get in touch through your usual Oracle sales contact.

Oracle Identity Manager 11g R2 Basic Performance Tuning

We have to configuration performance tuning for Oracle Identity Manager optimal performance such as application server,database and etc. I'll write some basic tuning settings  recommended by Oracle.

 Also, you can read this guide for other tuning settings such as caching and learn how to monitor Oracle Identiy Manager performance. http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E27559_01/doc.1112/e28552/oim.htm

Basic UI Tuning :

Following are the recommended application module settings for OIM. Add these settings under WebLogic ServerAdministration Console>> Servers >> oim_server1>> Server Start >> Arguments and restart the admin server.

-Djbo.ampool.doampooling=true -Djbo.ampool.minavailablesize=1

-Djbo.ampool.maxavailablesize=120 -Djbo.recyclethreshold=60

-Djbo.ampool.timetolive=-1 -Djbo.load.components.lazily=true

-Djbo.doconnectionpooling=true -Djbo.txn.disconnect_level=1

-Djbo.connectfailover=false -Djbo.max.cursors=5

-Doracle.jdbc.implicitStatementCacheSize=5

-Doracle.jdbc.maxCachedBufferSize=19

These recommended settings assume that 100 concurrent users per node. Use the below formula to change

Djbo.ampool.maxavailablesize if your # of concurrent users is different.

Djbo.ampool.maxavailablesize = # of concurrent users + 20%

Basic Server Tuning:

JVM Parameter HotSpot JVM JRockit JVM

Min. Heap Size (Xms) 4GB 4GB

Max Heap Size (Xmx) 4GB 4GB

PermSize (-XX:PermSize) 500m N/A

PermGen size (-XX:MaxPermSize) 1GB N/A

JDBC Connection Pool parameters: 

Parameter name Value

Initial Capacity 50

Minimum Capacity 50

Max. Capacity 150

Inactive Connectiontimeout 30

To increase the capacity of the JDBC connection pools:

Goto WebLogic Server Administration Console and then Click Services=>Data Sources.

OIM also uses DirectDB data source and you can increase its capacity as below.

Go to Enterprise Manager -> Oracle Identity Manager -> System MBean Browser -> Application Defined MBeans -> oracle.iam -

>OIM Server -> Application oim -> XMLConfig -> Config -> XMLConfig.DirectDBConfig.

Set the following values for attributes.

Attribute name Value

MinConnections 50

Is the Internet of Things (IoT) Your Thing?

What is the Internet of Things (IoT)? Why are we hearing so much about it nowadays? What does IoT mean for an enterprise like mine? Does it impact my IT infrastructure? Should I be invested in it or at least learn more about it? Is it for real or are we talking about a future technology? What does Oracle have to do with IoT.

We know some of you have questions like these in mind. Our February edition of the Oracle Fusion Middleware newsletter ran a feature that explores some of these questions. If you haven't already, do take a look at the feature. We hope that this is a start of a conversation. We look forward to hearing from you - questions, critique, feedback, your opinion(s), your observations and more; we'll take it. And if you haven't already, do subscribe to the newsletter.

Don't Leave Home Without It ...

Author: Rimi Bewtra, Sr. Director Mobile Product Marketing

Last week I attended the 2014 Mobile World Congress, the industry-defining event hosted in Barcelona, Spain, with over 85,000 attendees from over 200 countries, there was a wealth of learning and networking opportunities, product showcases and announcements, inspiration and innovation to be seen everywhere.

Today there is so much information at our fingertips, accessible anywhere, any time on many different "smart" devices. Being at the world’s largest mobile conference, I spend the entire first day being "mobile" (without opening up my wallet) – instead I used only my smartphone. I used the Hailo App to get my taxi from my hotel to the conference, I used the Mobile World Congress App to figure out my day’s schedule, to navigate from one location to the next and pre-order my food during the day, I used PayPal App to pay And  I used Twitter, text and email to communicate with colleagues and contacts before returning back to my hotel to make a few phone calls back home.

My smartphone has easily become my most valuable tool for both personal and professional use – it holds a great deal of information and is integrated to so many different aspects of my life. During the conference I saw many new devices that will continue to transform the way I live, work and communicate but one thing is also clear that the integration and security for all of this information is more important than ever before. From the enterprises perspective, my smartphone is both a benefit and a liability. It certainly is an important productivity tool, however, if I were to loose it or it gets stolen then what happens to the corporate data.

Mobile not only represents new opportunities but has also introduced new set of challenges – for enterprises this is around corporate governance, integration, security and management just to name a few areas. And this was exactly the point that Oracle’s Mobile Strategy Vice President, Suhas Uliyar spent time discussing with customers, partners, and press. Read the article to learn more.

Oracle’s strategy is to simplify enterprise mobility -- offering a complete offering that includes out-of-the-box mobile apps, a mobile platform that you can use to develop, connect, and secure your own mobile apps, and mobile security that is integrated with the Oracle Mobile Platform and can also be leveraged separately as part of your overall enterprise security architecture. At Mobile World Congress there was a great deal of buzz around Oracle’s mobile offering, we’re certainly going to hear a lot more in 2014.

Stay connected (while integrated & secure) … and of course don’t leave without your smartphone!

The Bus is Here! Let's Go!

Ok. You read my last blog post and built your first your mobile app for iOS and Android.  You’re happy. Happy as a clam. You leveraged your Java expertise, didn’t have to learn a new OS specific language and deployed your mobile app to iOS and Android.  It’s not $WhatsApp that FB just paid $19B for, but cheers for you!

Now your manager comes in, tells you what a great job you did on that app. Folks really like it… but now he wants you to expand it further.  He wants new mobile apps that reach the main servers – where the mission critical apps live.  Can you do that?  We’ll need it to:
  • Build an app to access the existing enterprise applications like PeopleSoft, Siebel, etc. We can’t afford a rewrite, but the execs want to mobile enable them to the field
  • It has to be secure. Enterprise grade. Proven. No compromises here.
  • SLAs (service level agreements). It needs to perform, and the apps performance needs to be measured, with reporting so we can see how the app is being used
  • Caching.  We don’t want to keep hitting our infrastructure unnecessarily.  For the static data, there’s really no need to keep retrieving the same data over and over again when we can simply cache it, right?



What do you think? Can you do it?

Check out this post by Jeff Davies covering mobile apps and Oracle Service Bus, part of the new Oracle Mobile Suite – and get happy!

Thought Leader or Thought Provoker? An ACE Director Weighs in

Author: Debra Lilley, ACE Director

I guess the term thought leader means I share my thoughts with you, but actually I believe we are more successful if after reading my post you are the one doing the thinking, more of a Thought Provoker than leader.

The social world in which we now all reside, makes thought more visible and so much easier to share. Communities share, and all the areas they touch overlap and create the outreach we all feed from. In this post I want to share a story about one small outreach, the chain of events behind it, and what that teaches us.

In my bio I am introduced as an Oracle ACE Director and so I thought I start my story with a little bit more about it, because these are people you should follow.

The ACE program is run by the Oracle Technology Network OTN and recognises people in the community to have Oracle skills and more importantly share them with the community.

For those who are recognised subject leaders and who are very active advocates, speakers, authors, bloggers there is the ACE Director designation, which I am very proud to be part of.

This community of ACE Directors has spawned a few initiatives one of which I am very honoured to have been a catalyst for, the Applications UX Advocate program. Here a group of us in the Middleware area have been working with Oracle Development looking at the User Experience and the discipline and research invested in by Oracle. We have learned through workshops and collaborative projects and in turn present in usergroup events to share back to the wider community. The value to Oracle above us simply being advocates is the feedback from a wide range of experts about the applications and approach.

One of my peers here is Sten Vesterli, a quiet Dane who likes in his spare time to compete in Triathlons, Sten is a thought leader in the development world and his latest book ADF Enterprise Application Development - Made Simple has been very well received. As part of the UX advocates group when we were looking at the design patterns used by the Fusion Applications development teams, Sten sked if these could be shared with the wider development community. Not long after they were. Sten has recently started a newsletter series called Technology that Fits which I recommend to all Oracle AppAdvantage followers. Sign up now.

Last year Oracle released ADF mobile, and the adoption is widespread. Mobile has taken over the way we work, in fact I am typing this on my iPad mini as I fly to a diving holiday in the Philippines! In business we see mobile or the need for mobile everywhere. If you are using or thinking of ADF mobile look no further than OTN for the design patterns created after 1,000s of hours research by the UX team, allowing you to adopt industry standard, proven designs quickly and make your mobile applications efficient and easy to adopt.

This is a very practical example of the benefits of using social in business. Oracle through their flagship OTN community, initiated the ACE program which reaches out to all users of Oracle technology and spawned from that was the UX program and then Sten, an individual component set off the chain of events that led to a valuable resource being made available free to that community.

Social could be an enabler for your business, and the Oracle social tools may be your Oracle AppAdvantage entry point.

Management of Oracle Database Authorization with Oracle Identity Manager

Oracle Identity Manager projects usually starts with management of user identity life-cycle from trusted resource to target systems. After completed user's identity management in first step second step is entitlement management of user's. For example role management of user's on Oracle Databases or Windows Servers or any custom applications.

I want to share my experience about management of Oracle Database authorization through Oracle Identity Manager in a project on this post.

We used three component for management of Oracle Database Authorization. These are Oracle Database Enterprise User Security(EUS), Oracle Unified Directory(OUD) and Oracle Identity Manager(OIM).  

Enterprise User Security enables you to centrally manage database users across the enterprise. This is a component of Oracle Database.

Oracle Unified Directory is a comprehensive next generation directory service that is designed to address large deployments, to provide high performance, to be highly extensive and to be easy to deploy, manage, and monitor. Oracle Unified Directory is used to role management integrated with Enterprise User Security.Integrating Oracle Unified Directory with Oracle's Enterprise User Security (EUS) enables you to store user identities in Oracle Unified Directory for Oracle Database authentication.

Oracle Identity Manager is used to management of Oracle Unified Directory user's life-cycle with right value and user's group.All of this process stars from Oracle Identity Manager and then insert user to OUD group or delete user from OUD group.So user will have rights via Oracle Unified Directory and Enterprise User Security.


Following steps explain integration of these three tools.

1- Enabling Oracle Unified Directory for Enterprise User Security by using Oracle Directory Services Manager(ODSM).

  • Connect to the directory server from ODSM.
  • Select the Home tab.
  • Under the Configuration menu, select Create Base DN.
  • On the Configuration Wizard, enter the details of the new suffix.
  • Select the EUS Enabled check box.
  • Click Create to add the new, EUS-enabled suffix.

2- After OUD has been enabled for EUS, you must update the realm information in the OUD configuration by performing the following steps:

  • Locate the LDIF template file at install_dir/config/EUS/modifyRealm.ldif.
  • Edit the modifyRealm.ldif file as follows:

-Replace dc=example,dc=com with the correct naming context for your server instance.

-Replace ou=people and ou=groups with the correct location of the user and group entries in your DIT.

  • Use the ldapmodify command to update the configuration with the edited LDIF template file, for example:

- $ ldapmodify -h localhost -p 4444 -D "cn=directory manager" -j pwd-file -v -f modifyRealm.ldif

3- Complete below configuration on Oracle Database

  • Configure your database for directory usage by using NetCA.
  • Register the database with the directory by using DBCA.
  • Creating a shared schema in the database.
  • Mapping enterprise users to the shared schema.

4-Install Oracle Internet Directory Connector to Oracle Identity Manager because of user provisioning to Oracle Unified Directory and manage groups so roles.

When complete all of above steps.First Enterprise User Security enabled on DB,then create DB roles -enterprise role- and map this roles to the Oracle Unified Directory global roles.And last manage user's Oracle database authorization with Oracle Identity Manager through Oracle Unified Directory.

P.S.: if you want to manage Oracle Database 9i you have to use Oracle Internet Directory instead of Oracle Unified Directory.
