Oracle Fusion Middleware at Oracle OpenWorld 2013: The View from Back Stage Before the Curtain Rises
By Tanu Sood on Sep 20, 2013
Author: Claire Dessaux, Vice President, Oracle
As we are putting the final touches on our slides and demonstrations for next week I spent some time back stage with the speakers of the different Oracle Fusion Middleware General Sessions to get a sneak peek at what they are going to discuss in their respective presentation.
Based on your interests and your questions to us, a lot of this content revolves around cloud computing, mobile computing, Internet of Things/M2M (Machine to Machine), big data/fast data, business-user empowerment, engineered systems, and on how Oracle Fusion Middleware uniquely provides an open, complete, and integrated platform that lets you innovate and keep pace with these new business requirements, while reducing costs.
We’ve made our content very actionable and educational, focusing on “How To’s” beyond simply restating the “marketing hype”. For instance, you’ll learn how to extend Oracle E-Business Suite with mobile capabilities; how to integrate on-premise applications with cloud applications; how to empower business users to automate the management of their work lists; or how to extend your existing security infrastructure to support cloud applications and mobile applications.
And in addition to the Oracle experts presenting these sessions, you will also hear directly from users of Oracle Fusion Middleware who will be on stage with us to share some of their best practices and lessons learned.
Meanwhile, until next week, let’s go behind the curtain and explore five key Fusion Middleware General Sessions in more details:

Oracle Fusion Middleware – Designed to Power Your Cloud Strategy (GEN12064)
Two Oracle experts in Cloud Computing, Sandeep Banerjie and Mark Nelson, will examine the different options to easily deploy Oracle Fusion Middleware components “as a service”: either on-premise in private clouds (with or without Oracle Exalogic), or as IaaS, Managed IaaS, or PaaS in public clouds – including Oracle Cloud and third party clouds such as Microsoft Windows Azure. These different options will be illustrated by extensive demonstrations.
