Where to Find this Year's Middleware Innovators at OpenWorld
By Dain C. Hansen on Sep 21, 2011
Every year at OpenWorld, Oracle announces the winners to its most prestigious awards in Middleware, the Fusion Middleware Innovation Awards. This year, we’ll be announcing the winners and highlighting a few of their original implementations during this key session in the Middleware stream:
October 4th, 11:45 AM, Oracle Fusion Middleware: Meet This Year's Most Impressive Customer Projects, Moscone West - 3007
In addition, we’ll give a sneak peak of a few winners during the Fusion Middleware General Session with Hasan Rizvi at 11AM, Monday October 3rd, Moscone West, 3014. Checkout the Fusion Middleware Focus On document for more details on both of these activities and more in the Middleware stream.
What kinds of customers win the Fusion Middleware Innovation Awards? Winners are selected based on the uniqueness of their business case, business benefits, level of impact relative to the size of the organization, complexity and magnitude of implementation, and the originality of architecture. The winners are selected by a panel of judges that score each entry across multiple different scoring categories. This year, the following categories included:
- Application Grid, Oracle Exalogic
- BI and EPM
- Data Integration
- Fusion Development and Application Development Framework
- Identity Management
- SOA, AIA, BPM
Last year at OpenWorld 2010 we announced over 33 innovative customers that won the award, including companies like Verizon, Avea, Herbalife, OnStar, ING, Credit Suisse, State of NY, SunGard, Northern Trust, Telenor, Crocs, Amgen, and many others.
