Mobile App Integration Trends

By Ian Wallis, Director Mobile PaaS Business Development, Oracle EMEA 

The first half of 2015 has seen big advances in mobile app, development, integration and mobile enterprise IT and these culminated for me at the Gartner AADI conference we took part in towards the end of May (see photo above).  

There was a lot of talk about how IT is becoming a toxic brand inside the enterprise, holding back innovation and blocking progress in initiatives desperately needed by the business. Almost 40% of IT spend is now being decided on by teams outside of IT and according to Gartner this will rise to 50% by 2017.

We need to transform IT into an enabler rather than a blocker of change. This means layering IT with systems of innovation, which are fluid, adaptable and innovative on top of the core systems, which need to be safe and steady. These systems of innovation should allow the organization to take risk without jeopardising the core systems.

So when considering a mobile app integration strategy, two new considerations play out for CIOs and IT organizations:

  • Executing Two Speed IT, which is part solid and part fluid delivery, referred to by Gartner as Bimodal IT and is key to allowing IT to work at business speed.
  • Enabling DevOps, which is integral to allowing for a rapid innovation cycle, working at pace, embracing failure, but failing fast and iterating quickly.

Enterprises also need to evolve away from trying to enforce Mobile Device Management (MDM) through to managing Digital Risk. Given the low adoption of MDM of between 25% and 50%, enterprises need to start to trust the untrustworthy, as we move to more usage on personal mobile devices and “things”.

Businesses also need to expect unintended consequences as mobile throws up unexpected outcomes and need to be aware of amplification given the huge reach of mobile and social.

Businesses should look to surround themselves with digital assets and remove the physical constraints of doing business. This includes tapping in to Business Moments, where transient opportunities can be exploited dynamically. To do this we see more demand for Micro apps, where one app does one thing really well, most likely on a watch or mobile phone.

To support these business moments via micro apps, there are a number of key trends impacting how we use mobile app platforms. Richard Marshall outlined the following shifts happening in mobile application development:

  • Growth of open source tools (e.g. node.js, Angular)
  • Cross compilation tools delivering native binaries (e.g. Xamarin)
  • Big suites evolving (e.g. Oracle, MSFT, IBM…)
  • Rapid Mobile App Development (RMAD) tools emerging

It is very reassuring to see that Oracle’s Mobile Cloud Service aligns closely with these trends:

  1. Oracle’s embrace of open source tools such as Node.js, Ionic, Angular, Knockout, Cordova and other tools
  2. Oracle’s recent partnership with Xamarin and Oracle’s own Mobile Application Framework providing cross compilation tools
  3. The evolution of Mobile Cloud Service as part of a much broader Platform as a Service offering, supporting big Digital initiatives
  4. The incredible speed of implementation of mobile apps using the combination of tools mentioned above as well upcoming Mobile Cloud Service releases further adding to RMAD capability in the Oracle PaaS platform
All in all these are very exciting times for us at Oracle. For more information on Oracle’s Mobile Cloud Service, click here.

PaaS Launch and Cloud File Sharing and Collaboration

Originally published on WebCenter blog

Thanks for joining us for the big PaaS launch on Monday, June 22nd with Larry Ellison, Thomas Kurian and other senior Oracle and customer executives. Ellison announced more than 24 new services to Oracle Cloud Platform which is a comprehensive, integrated suite of services that make it easier for developers, IT professionals, business users, and analysts to build, extend, and integrate cloud applications and drive co-existence with the existing on-premise infrastructure. For more details on the announcement, cloud services and customer videos, you can catch the on demand online replay of the event.

One of the key areas for PaaS is cloud content and collaboration that drives frictionless user collaboration, content sharing and business process automation anywhere, anytime and on any device. As an enterprise, you will well recognize the need to drive workforce productivity and operational efficiency by enabling secure availability and access to content on any device, within and beyond the firewall and connecting it to the business processes and the applications (SaaS and on-premise) to well, get work done. So, beyond just cloud file sharing which is what current Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) solutions do, you need to be able to share and access content in context and then be able to drive business processes using that content. That is true cloud content and collaboration and that is what will drive output and improve productivity in a digital workplace.

Check out this video that we recently released. While it discusses a specific use case tracking the lifecycle from marketing to sales to service, imagine the power of enabling real time collaboration among employees, remote workforce, external vendors and partners and being able to drive output from anywhere, anytime and any device. And let us know what use case do you come across often in your workplace; we look forward to hearing from you.

Mobile – it is all about the user journey

By Ian Wallis – issue 3

Can you recall your first experience of early smartphone apps? Where they based on trivial, or informational use cases? The first iPhone 3 app I witnessed was a beer-drinking app, which would mimic a glass of beer being drunk empty as the user tilted the phone over to much hilarity in the office.

Fast-forward to today and we are in the midst of a mobile digital age where apps understand the context of what we are doing. Whatsapp knows which friends are online, Spotify suggests playlists, Netflix recommends films, Tripcase knows my next flight and Waze can get me home fast with two finger presses.

Every time I run one of our Talk Mobile workshops, I ask the audience what is their favourite app. Most people mention two, one they use frequently and one they love to use. And every time, I learn about a new app that does fantastically useful stuff for us.

This has involved a significant shift beyond information and transactions to user experiences where context and advice make our life easier, encompassed in what is being termed the Digital journey. And at the heart of this journey are mobile apps that know what you want to do next.

Nevertheless time and again we encounter mobile apps that come up short. Our banking apps should be warning us if we over spend this week. Our supermarket apps should flag up what we are likely to need or more importantly what we will not need in our cart almost like an inventory management service. We most certainly should not be receiving the load of outbound notifications and marketing clutter we get through poorly conceived push notifications or email.

Considering how mobile can enhance this experience is key: consider my entire user journey, allow me to upload a photo if it saves me time, use my location to guide me, if I complain get back to me immediately with what I require, push me stuff I really need to know and drop the rest. You don’t have to ask me my customer number, address, post-code, birthday and mother’s maiden name every time, you have access to my finger print.

By linking mobile, business process, data and customer insight these great Digital experiences are possible and they do not need to take years to implement. By using mobile cloud services, organizations can get started immediately, providing fantastic user experiences, driving loyalty, attracting business, achieving efficiency and gaining significant advantage over the competition.

Why I'm Excited About Oracle Integration Cloud Service - New Video

By Bruce Tierney Oracle February 26, 2015 

Having worked with Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) products for many years, I have come to the conclusion that,

in the early days, SOA was a solution looking for a problem.  

Businesses deployed standalone CRM, ERP, and other applications that were closed off from easy integration and had few if any small services that could be assembled as part of a composite application, thereby limiting the value of SOA.

Pre-integration Video LinkFast forward to today and “services“ are everywhere providing easy justification for SOA. If you want to deliver new offerings on your web site for your customers quickly, you don’t start from scratch. You leverage internal and external services (ex: GetCustomerRecord, GetCreditScore, etc.) and your project is already partially completed. That’s great progress but it took over 20 years for the concept of SOA (coined in 1994) to become the accepted standard in most medium-to-large enterprises.

Integration complexity

In contrast, Oracle Integration Cloud Service marks a dramatic shift in how we approach integration… equal to the shift from EAI to SOA but with one major difference. Instead of requiring a new learning curve on how to integrate with loosely coupled SOA, Oracle Integration Cloud Service goes in the opposite direction with a focus on ease of use. And instead of integration from scratch, its pre-integration; instead of your best guess, its crowdsourced recommendation ratings. In the past, it was a shame that the application developers who knew their respective CRM, ERP, service, marketing, etc. applications best didn’t embed the integrations themselves into the integration platforms. With Oracle Cloud Integration Service and the Oracle Cloud Adapters…that’s what happened.

And so I wrote the script for this video to graphically convey the ease of use and dramatic shift that Oracle Cloud is bringing to integration into a story of how Oracle Integration Cloud Service can connect a disconnected business.

It’s not very often that a solution to a long-standing problem is such a major shift in the right direction. It’s my belief this has happened with Oracle Integration Cloud Service.Built by Oracle

Watch the new video now to see for yourself.  I expect it will be 3 minutes of time well used.

Creating Data Control in Jdeveloper from REST Service in Oracle Database

Cross posting from original post by Gökhan Göksu-Oracle

In this post I will be showing you how to create data controls for a mobile application in Jdeveloper to consume a REST service deployed as a RESTful Service Module on Oracle Database Cloud.

Oracle REST Data Services (formerly known as APEX Listener) is a JavaEE based implementation that offers increased functionality, enhanced security and file caching for REST resources.

For the mobile application we will use the A-Team Mobile Persistence Accelerator which is a lightweight mobile framework that enables data synchronization and persistence. This comes as a plugin that we can install in Jdeveloper (Help>Check for Updates)  At the backend, we will use the RESTful Service Module 'oracle.example.hr'  which is already deployed as an example service in an Oracle Database Cloud instance that exposes methods to select from employees table.

In Jdeveloper, start by creating a simple MAF Application called HR_REST. Then right-click the ApplicationController project and choose Business Tier > Mobile Application Framework > MAF Business Objects from REST Web Service in,,,continue to orig post.

Why is Cloud File Sharing a PaaS Solution?

Oracle Documents Cloud Service (DOCS) is an enterprise grade cloud file sync and share solution that allows enterprise users to collaborate internally and externally anytime, anywhere and from any device. With its ease of use and the benefits it provides around frictionless collaboration and mobile productivity soon as the service is switched on, we often get asked why Oracle DOCS is not considered a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution but rather a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution? The reasons are multi-fold. One, because more than simple file sharing, Oracle DOCS enables all Lines of Businesses (LoBs) to leverage cloud document sharing with the same ease of consumer grade solutions but with the security and controls that the IT team approves. Second, because we consider cloud file sharing a strategic investment rather than a point solution for one-off document sharing. But most importantly, because it ties into your enterprise, your business.

Cloud and Mobile, Two Sides of the Same Coin


There’s a tremendous amount of interest in cloud computing. The interest is certainly well deserved - but let’s not lose sight of mobile, IMHO, the other side of the the same coin that that is affecting every facet of IT and our daily lives.  

Cloud is all about infrastructure - whether IaaS, PaaS or SaaS, it’s where a large portion of IT's attention is heading towards.  Sure, cloud based systems have excellent web interfaces, but the new “first screen” is mobile. By "first screen" I mean that mobile is THE interface we spend most of our time on. The recent study from MilwardBrown has shown mobile to have surpassed TV! Think about that - mobile has surpassed TV. Remember the first music video ever played on MTV (you know, that channel that no longer plays music ;-)  the first music video played was Video killed the radio star, by the BugglesGranted that many of us when watching TV are probably also checking our email, Facebook, instant messaging, etc. and thus counted as mobile views butmobile is undeniably the future in terms of interfaces.  Better get on it.

Consider the following:

  • Facebook - the most dominant social media platform today has 1.25 billion mobile monthly users, of which 798 million are daily mobile users and 581 million FB users, and now 581 million only access FB via mobile.
  • Apple, the most valuable company in the world, is nearly $800B market cap, generates 70% of it's revenue via the iPhone
  • Google just announced Project Fi - a program to deliver wireless connectivity thru a combo of WiFi hotspots and partnerships with Sprint and T-Mobile. Interestingly, that's currently only available on their Nexus 6 phone. I guess they need the advantage to make any inroads against the other Android platforms from Samsung, Xiaomi, etc.
And here at the big O ranch with the fastest sailboats on the planet, we’re pushing hard on the mobile apps side as well as infrastructure.  For example, the JD Edwards team is approaching 100 mobile apps, which I suspect they’ll reach before year end.  And in terms of mobile platforms - keep your eyes open for the GA release of Oracle Mobile Cloud Services.  To get a sneak peek as to what MCS is about, check out the new eBook here

So like I said earlier, cloud is all about the infrastructure, but the new “first screen" to all that infrastructure is mobile - two sides of the same coin.

And perhaps soon?... I’ll get my Apple Watch (I ordered it at 12:05AM on the first day! :-\  ) so I can add to this mobile trend.

PaaS Use Cases: Cloud Documents Sharing and Collaboration

In my post yesterday, I had announced the availability of the April Edition of Oracle Fusion Middleware Newsletter. The newsletter was all about how PaaS services are enabling a digital transformation in the workplace. Enterprises are now not just about their employees but the all encompassing ecosystem of employees, partners, suppliers and even customers. Geography and time zones no longer define the workplace. The workforce needs anytime, anywhere access to work content, available off any device. The same content needs to be shared and collaborated on by people both within the organization and outside. In this world, cloud content sharing and collaboration is not a nice to have but a must have. Oracle Documents Cloud Service (DOCS) is an enterprise-grade cloud content sharing and collaboration solution that allows you to store, share and access content from anywhere off Web, desktop and mobile devices securely and with access trails. But more than that,  Oracle DOCS ties the content available to you to context - to the enterprise content, business processes and applications that you rely on to get your work done.

To offer a 360-degree perspective on why Oracle is investing its R&D efforts in cloud sharing and collaboration, be sure to tune into our live executive webcast on Wednesday, May 13 at 10 am PT/1 pm ET where we would have not only our senior Product Management executives but also Oracle CIO, Mark Sunday, VP of Content and Digital Media Technologies at IDC, Melissa Webster, EVP of TekStream Solutions, our customer as well as Oracle VP of Marketing Cloud, Alex Hooshmand discussing the role of enterprise cloud content sharing and collaboration. Save the date and register today for this webcast.

In the meantime, take a look at some of the common use cases we find where enterprise-grade Documents Cloud Service adds value to Lines of Businesses and IT. Here is the feature from our recent April edition of the newsletter featuring our upcoming webcast's host, Scott Howley, Vice President, Product Management at Oracle.

Cloud Computing Use Cases: Oracle Documents Cloud Service

Cloud computing—software as a service, platform as a service, and infrastructure as a service—is an undisputed game-changer in the corporate world. But with so many different cloud options, it can be complicated to align them with possible real-life scenarios. Here’s where use cases come in handy. In this series of articles, the Oracle Fusion Middleware Newsletter will illustrate how various aspects of cloud computing work within a business setting. For this issue, we’re looking at Oracle Documents Cloud Service.

“One of the reasons that cloud-based file-sharing services are so popular is that they address a universal challenge. Every employee, regardless of their role, needs a secure way to share files for work collaboration,” says Oracle Vice President of Oracle Fusion Middleware Product Management Scott Howley. “In addition, today’s digital workplace requires a 24/7 access to work content from anywhere on any device.”

Use Case 1: Coordinating with Business Partners
Today, internal business functions work with a variety of outside partners—think, for example, of a project in which marketing collaborates with an outside agency on deliverables. “You need to be able to collaborate and share files in real time, but without jeopardizing confidential information such as a press release that could impact stock prices,” says Howley. With Oracle Documents Cloud Service, you have the convenience of collaborative access without the risk associated with consumer products. Enterprise encryption, auditing, tracking, permission controls, and automatic backups keep your information safe.

Use Case 2: Fostering Sales Collaboration
Sales teams often work under deadline, such as when creating a detailed customer request for proposal, a process that involves quickly changing versions that must be instantly shared with both internal and external parties. Additionally, the final output likely needs to be tied back to an opportunity ID in the organization’s CRM system. With Oracle Documents Cloud Service, automatic versioning and syncing ensures version integrity, and its ability to integrate with other Oracle Cloud services such as Oracle Sales Cloud means CRM opportunities won’t get lost.

Use Case 3: Support for Mobile Field Workers
Companies must ensure that mobile or field-site workers can easily and safely access documents—even those with sensitive company information—via a wide variety of devices, from smart phones to tablets and laptops. Oracle Documents Cloud Service provides that flexibility with native support for iPhones, iPads, and Android mobile devices, along with desktop sync for both Mac and Windows computers. Moreover, the ability to embed a user interface in applications, portals, or sites ensures that content can have limitless expressions as work dictates.

“As these use cases show, smart organizations want more than just a standalone file sync and share solution,” says Howley. “They want enterprise-grade security, control, and integration for cloud content sharing.”

To learn more about Oracle Documents Cloud Service, register today for the Oracle Documents Cloud Service executive webcast featuring Oracle CIO Mark Sunday and visit cloud.oracle.com/documents for more information.
