Oracle Fusion Middleware at Oracle OpenWorld 2013: The View from Back Stage Before the Curtain Rises

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:

1) Monday, Sep 23, 10:45 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. – Marriott Marquis Salon 8

Emerging Trends in Application Development – The Oracle Perspective (GEN9618)

Oracle’s Mobile and Application Development Tools guru, Chris Tonas, will present an update on the evolution of our development tools offering in the context of mobile computing and cloud computing. Don’t miss this session to see some very cool demonstrations, including how to use Oracle ADF Mobile to build a mobile application that manages your Oracle OpenWorld 2013 schedule.

This session is co-presented with Colab Consulting Pty Ltd.

2) Monday, Sep 23, 3:15 p.m. - 4:15 p.m. – Moscone North Hall D

Accelerate Business Innovation with Oracle Fusion Middleware (GEN9600)

Thomas Kurian, Executive Vice President, Product Development, will walk us through a day in the life of an Oracle Fusion Middleware user having to address the new requirements in application delivery around cloud computing, mobile computing, and business-user empowerment. Throughout this journey Thomas will examine the different product pillars under the Oracle Fusion Middleware family and what’s new in the next release of each component.

This session is co-presented with Agilent.

3) Tuesday, Sep 24, 10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. – Moscone South - 309

Simplify Mobile Innovation with Oracle Fusion Middleware (GEN8994)

Oracle Fusion Middleware provides a complete yet modular platform to support the full lifecycle of mobile applications. Suhas Uliyar and Ed Zou will detail the different aspects of this platform across the “develop, integrate, secure, and deploy/manage” cycle with demonstrations and customer examples on stage discussing their architecture.

This session is co-presented with Accenture, INFOTECH Bilism, and LA Department of Building & Safety.

4) Tuesday, Sep 24, Noon - 1:00 p.m. – Moscone West - 2002/2004

Transform the Enterprise – Optimize Applications Investment with Middleware (GEN9301)

This session is a “must-to-attend” for all Oracle Applications customers to understand how Oracle Fusion Middleware helps you leverage your existing investments to innovate, differentiate, and to simplify. More specifically, Amit Zavery, Group Vice President, Oracle Fusion Middleware Product Management will showcase how to extend Oracle E-Business Suite with mobile capabilities; how to integrate Oracle E-Business Suite with Oracle RightNow Cloud Service; and how to use Oracle WebCenter and Oracle BPM Suite to streamline a quote to order process. Amit will also present the latest benchmarks for Oracle Applications on Oracle Exalogic, along with an update on the roadmap for Oracle In-Memory Applications.

This session is co-presented with McAfee, Pella, University of Melbourne, and World Fuel Services.

5) Tuesday, Sep 24, 3:45 p.m. - 4:45 p.m. – Moscone West - 3024

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.

We hope to see you at these five sessions.

Safe travels.

Inside the OOW Session: Mobile Apps for Oracle E-Business Suite with Oracle Fusion Middleware

Author: Srikant Subramaniam, Senior Principal Product Manager, Oracle

CON9437: Mobile Apps for Oracle E-Business Suite with Oracle Fusion Middleware
Wednesday, Sep 25, 11:45 AM - 12:45 PM
Moscone West – 2014

There is a change going on in how people access information that is as dramatic as when PCs replaced green screens on the corporate desktop. That change is the rapid adoption of smart phones and tablets as a way to access corporate applications. Employees and customers that have grown accustomed to accessing web sites and applications from their mobile devices are now insisting on the same ability to interact with enterprise applications.

As increasingly larger numbers of applications and business functions are exposed via mobile devices, new requirements will emerge to compose and combine existing web services in ways that were not previously anticipated. For instance, the need to mobilize processes (as opposed to applications) as exemplified by expense and invoice approvals, field service, financial transactions (e.g.: loan approval), task management/scheduling, to name a few. In addition, there is also the need to develop these mobile apps and connect them to enterprise applications while reusing existing IT skill sets.

Oracle Fusion Middleware provides the necessary infrastructure to extend business processes and services to the mobile device. Session attendees will hear about the different ways components of Oracle Fusion Middleware can be used to develop, connect, secure, deploy and manage mobile solutions. Oracle ADF Mobile enables rapid and declarative development of on-device mobile applications. These applications provide a richer experience for smart devices users than a browser. Together, these two products from Oracle provide the foundation for a mobility architecture. See how all these concepts come together via a mobile order management app.

We will also discuss a real world customer use-case, the business drivers behind their push for mobility and a walkthrough of the resulting mobile solution that was built with Oracle Fusion Middleware.
