Experiencing the Benefits of Fusion Middleware - Agilent Technologies Feels the Boost

Agilent Technologies Inc., is a leading electronic and bio-analytical measurement company. Through its four lines of business—chemical analysis, life sciences, diagnostics and genomics, and electronic measurement— Agilent focuses on innovation.  They test more than half of the world's 1.13 billion cell phones and help companies analyze disease causes and develop new treatments.

Focused on innovation and precision, Agilent Technologies relied on App Advantage for Fusion Middleware to reduce IT costs, accelerte time-to-value as well as a 60% jump in customer satisfaction with the portal experience.  Additionally, they were able to provision a new employee for IT access in 20 minutes versus five days.  Finally, Agilent saved more than $1 million annually in integration-related costs by reducing the time needed to build interfaces by replacing TIBCO with Oracle SOA Suite. 

Specifically, the Fusion Middleware components implemented as part of their App Advantage strategy included: Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle Access and Identity Management and Oracle WebCenter Portal.  With these middleware technologies, Agilent is creating a single view of customers and went live with its MyAgilent portal and saw several key gains in the first six months.  Users could log in at a single time and access all portal applications, services as well as enable customers to order parts and track order status. This was just the beginning for Agilent, whether it be establishing a mobile strategy, setting up single sign-on and user provisioning, deploying an application server environment or creating robust J2EE based business applications.

Chalk Talk with John: Application Server Appreciation


Whether running applications on-premise or in the cloud, application servers are unsung heroes of the enterprise - powering our most critical applications. Given how foundational they are, why is it so tricky to communicate the business value of their capabilities?

In this Chalk Talk episode, we visit the communities of Codeaway Vallery and Middleware Fields to understand the benefits that a standardized approach around application servers can provide organizations.

About me:

Norway Post AS Boosts Customer Insight and Service with Fusion Middleware

Founded in 1647, the Norway Post AS manages mail distribution throughout Norway.  Originally owned by the Norwegian Ministry of Transport, in 2002 they changed its corporate structure due to deregulation.  The challenges they faced included streamlining operations and cost reduction including IT expenses for 5 customer service call centers due to shrinking revenues and a drop in mail volume, enable customer service representatives to effectively service incoming calls,gain insight into customer insight and behavior.  The last challenge involved ultimately creating or deploying a solution that could be scale as new companies are acquired.

 

The solution implemented consisted of Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle WebLogic Suite used to integrate Salesforce.com CRM system to on-premise call center applications, back-end systems that were used to manage customer lists, contact information as well as
a mail tracking solution. With Oracle SOA Suite, Norway Post was able to achieve a significant time and effort savings in addition to improved data quality as a result of integrated,back end systems automatically synchronized with other systems.

The customer's quote says it all, " “We chose the Oracle solution for cloud-integration middleware because of its high reliability and flexibility. We had used Oracle extensively for a long time, so it was also a matter of making the most of our investment in our Oracle-based strategic integration platform,” said Trond Guneriussen, Service manager, Internal integration, Norway Post AS.

For more information on Norway Post AS and how they saw tremendous value with Oracle SOA Suite and WebLogic Suite, visit here.

Be Careful What You Wish For

 


Rick Beers is Senior Director of Product Management for Oracle Fusion Middleware. Prior to joining Oracle, Rick held a variety of executive operational positions at Corning, Inc. and Bausch & Lomb.

With a professional background that includes senior management positions in manufacturing, supply chain and information technology, Rick brings a unique set of experiences to cover the impact that technology can have on business models, processes and organizations.

Rick hosts the IT Leaders Editorial on a monthly basis.

 

 

 

My wife and I are finally making our move to Williamsburg Virginia, the center of the nations ‘Historic Triangle’ (Jamestown, Williamsburg and Yorktown). Long a goal of ours, we’re absolutely thrilled to see this underway and one would think that on such an occasion the editor of The AppAdvantage Oracle.com site would give me a pass on my regular IT Leaders Editorial. No such luck.

I was stumped with all those fifes and drums playing in my head and considered going into hiding when while packing up my home office yesterday I came across a book I’d read about three years ago. It was sent to me by a friend during my short time in consulting and I still remember the impact it had on the way I view enterprise technologies, which carried over to work I was about to begin as I joined Oracle. That book is ‘Wrench in the System’ by Harold Hambrose (2009, published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.)

With a tagline of ‘Why business software doesn’t work – and how to fix it’, the Wrench in the System explores the state of business software, its perceived inability to meet the needs of business, its unjustifiably high cost and complexity and its inability to unleash the creative needs of business users. By using Auto Industry lemon laws as hyperbole at the outset, Mr. Hambrose provides the foundation for the conclusions to be reached throughout the book. It’s an entertaining read and one cannot initially disagree with any of the points being made or solutions proposed. At least in the abstract.

But I ended the book with one word: ‘Why’. Why does the condition exist and why had it not yet been resolved, given the compelling reasoning throughout the book. One can argue that there are pretty bright people in the business software industry and its customers are not easily duped. So what’s going on here? 

 I participated in the ERP roll out era during the mid to late 1990’s, as part of teams that designed and deployed these systems. I still have the scars to prove it. Yes, we were deploying the rigid, tightly integrated, workflow driven, waterfall developed business software that is so often criticized today. But it was done for a purpose, a critically important one at the time that remains today. To grasp that fully we need to recall the state of business computing prior to ERP. 

By the early 1990's, the Client-Server era has been underway for 15 years. A vast improvement over the earlier generation mainframe technology, Client-Server, or if you will, distributed computing, allowed business applications running on multiple desktop PCs (clients) to access a database server over a network. This put business technology in the hands of business users and gave them the freedom to use that technology within their individual business processes.  But this desktop independence came with an unintended consequence. 

Departmental data began being created, stored and manipulated on the desktop without being passed to the central data server, and desktop applications grew to become disconnected process transaction systems. Lotus became the platform upon which Finance processes ran; and MRP managed the supply chain. Over time business organizations became increasingly siloed, processes became increasingly autonomous and data structures diverged to the point where consolidation became impossible. CFO’s became increasingly concerned that compliance to standards was becoming impossible and COO’s worried that business processes were becoming increasingly sub optimal. These were the wild wild west days of business computing.

Emerging to address this need was Enterprise Resource Planning (an evolution from Manufacturing Resource Planning). With its common data structures, rigid workflows, common business processes and tight integration across the enterprise, ERP retained the value delivered by distributed computing but within tightly bound structures. While some now see this as a basic set of flaws (as in Wrench in the System), it’s necessary to remind ourselves that the design was deliberate and the deployment stayed true to the needs at the time. And those needs remain. Quite frankly, Finance processes are rigid for a reason (think Sarbanes Oxley) and compliance to regulatory standards, whether legal or ethical, are reliant upon enterprise technology to control. ERP succeeded in accomplishing its goal.

But once again there was an unintended consequence. ERP’s rigidity was like oil and water to the agility required by the increasingly volatile marketplace. And far reaching innovations such as the Consumerization of IT, Cloud Computing and Mobility have put increasing strains on the rigid, tightly integrated protocols of ERP. Enterprise systems have been increasingly customized to attempt to meet those needs, at a high cost and complexity. In response, there has been an explosion in Business leaders purchasing software that meets their particular needs. This puts enterprise IT on a downward spiral that cannot be sustained.

In response to this need, Oracle has launched AppAdvantage, a unified view of applications, technologies and infrastructure  With its adaptable architecture that can flex with business requirements as they change over time - a hybrid of ERP, best of breed applications and services, interoperating in real time (either On Premise or in the Cloud). This truly represents the best of all worlds: the ability to standardize around common processes and data where necessary, to deliver the agility and openness that business requires for market leadership, while maintaining a secure and compliant enterprise platform.

 For more views on AppAdvantage, keep up with Debra Lilley’s posts. Debra, an ACE Director with 18 years of experience with Oracle Applications, is another veteran of ERP and offers terrific insights on all this from the business user’s point of view.

The moving van is here. Off to Williamsburg.

Hello With Oracle Identity Manager Architecture

Hi, my name is Mustafa! I'm a Senior Consultant in Fusion Middleware Team and living in Istanbul,Turkey. I worked many various Java based software development projects such as end-to-end web applications, CRM , Telco VAS and integration projects.I want to share my experiences and research about Fusion Middleware Products in this column.

Customer always wants best solution from software consultants or developers. Solution will be a code snippet or change complete architecture. We faced different requests according to the case of customer. In my posts i want to discuss Fusion Middleware Products Architecture or how can extend usability with apis or UI customization and more and I look forward to engaging with you on your experiences and thoughts on this. 

In my first post, i will be discussing Oracle Identity Manager architecture  and i plan to discuss Oracle Identity Manager 11g features in next posts.

Oracle Identity Manager System Architecture

Oracle Identity Governance includes Oracle Identity Manager,Oracle Identity Analytics and Oracle Privileged Account Manager. I will discuss Oracle Identity Manager architecture in this post. 

In basically, Oracle Identity Manager is a n-tier standard  Java EE application that is deployed on Oracle WebLogic Server and uses  a database . 

oracle identity manager architecture


Oracle Identity Manager presentation tier has three different screen and two different client. Identity Self Service and Identity System Administration are web-based thin client. Design Console is a Java Swing Client that communicates directly with the Business Service Tier.  Identity Self Service provides end-user operations and delegated administration features. System Administration provides system administration functions. And Design Console mostly use for development management operations such as  create and manage adapter and process form,notification , workflow desing, reconciliation rules etc.

Business service tier is implemented as an Enterprise JavaBeans(EJB) application. So you can extense Oracle Identity Manager capabilities. 
-The SMPL and EJB APIs allow develop custom plug-ins such as management roles or identities. 
-Identity Services allow use core business capabilites of Oracle Identity Manager such as The User provisioning or reconciliation service.
-Integration Services allow develop custom connectors or adapters for various deployment needs.
-Platform Services allow use Entitlement Servers, Scheduler or SOA composites.

The Middleware tier allows you using capabilites ADF Faces,SOA Suites, Scheduler, Entitlement Server and BI Publisher Reports. So OIM allows you to configure workflows uses Oracle SOA Suite or define authorization policies use with Oracle Entitlement Server. Also you can customization of OIM UI without need to write code and using ADF Business Editor  you can extend custom attributes to user,role,catalog and other objects.


Data tiers; Oracle Identity Manager is driven by data and metadata which provides flexibility and adaptability to Oracle Identity Manager functionlities. 
-Database has five schemas these are OIM,SOA,MDS,OPSS and OES. Oracle Identity Manager uses database to store runtime and configuration data. And all of entity, transactional and audit datas are stored in database.
-Metadata Store; customizations and personalizations are stored in file-based repository or database-based repository.And Oracle Identity Manager architecture,the metadata is in Oracle Identity Manager database to take advantage of some of the advanced performance and availability features that this mode provides.
-Identity Store; Oracle Identity Manager provides the ability to integrate an LDAP-based identity store into Oracle Identity Manager architecture. 

Oracle Identity Manager

Oracle Identity Manager uses the human workflow module of Oracle Service Oriented Architecture Suite. OIM connects to SOA using the T3 URL which is front-end URL for the SOA server.Oracle Identity Manager uses embedded Oracle Entitlement Server for authorization checks in OIM engine. 

Several Oracle Identity Manager modules use JMS queues. Each queue is processed by a separate Message Driven Bean (MDB), which is also part of the Oracle Identity Manager application. Message producers are also part of the Oracle Identity Manager application.

Oracle Identity Manager uses a scheduled jobs for some activities in the background.Some of scheduled jobs come with Out-Of-Box such as the disable users after the end date of the users or you can define your custom schedule jobs with Oracle Identity Manager APIs.

You can use Oracle BI Publisher for reporting Oracle Identity Manager transactions or audit data which are in database.

Global Perspective: Oracle AppAdvantage Does its Stage Debut in the UK

Global Perspective is a monthly series that brings experiences, business needs and real-world use cases from regions across the globe. This month’s feature is a follow-up from last month’s Global Perspective note from a well known ACE Director based in EMEA.

Author: Debra Lilley, ACE Director

My first contribution to this blog was before Oracle Open World and I was quite excited about where this initiative would take me in my understanding of the value of Oracle Fusion Middleware.

Rimi Bewtra from the Oracle AppAdvantage team came as promised to the Oracle ACE Director briefings and explained what this initiative was all about and I then asked the directors to take part in the new survey. The story was really well received and then at the SOA advisory board that many of these ACE Directors already take part in there was a further discussion on how this initiative will help customers understand the benefits of adoption.

A few days later Rick Beers launched the program at a lunch of invited customer executives which included one from Pella who talked about their projects (a quick recap on that here). I wasn’t able to stay for the whole event but what really interested me was that these executives who understood the technology but where looking for how they could use them to drive their businesses.

Lots of ideas were bubbling up in my head about how we can use this in user groups to help our members, and the timing was fantastic as just three weeks later we had UKOUG_Apps13, our flagship Applications conference in the UK. We had independently working with Oracle marketing in the UK on an initiative called Apps Transformation to help our members look beyond just the application they use today. We have had a Fusion community page but felt the options open are now much wider than Fusion Applications, there are acquired applications, social, mobility and of course the underlying technology, Oracle Fusion Middleware. I was really pleased to be allowed to give the Oracle AppAdvantage story as a session in our conference and we are planning a special Apps Transformation event in March where I hope the Oracle AppAdvantage team will take part and we will have the results of the survey to discuss.

But, life also came full circle for me. In my first post, I talked about Andrew Sutherland and his original theory that Oracle Fusion Middleware adoption had technical drivers. Well, Andrew was a speaker at our event and he gave a potted, tech-talk free update on Oracle Open World. Andrew talked about the Prevailing Technology Winds, and what is driving this today and he talked about that in the past it was the move from simply automating processes (ERP etc), through the altering of those processes (SOA) and onto consolidation. The next drivers are around the need to predict, both faster and more accurately; how to better exploit the information that we have available. He went on to talk about The Nexus of Forces: Social, Mobile, Cloud and Information – harnessing these forces of change with Oracle technology. Gartner really likes this concept and if you want to know more you can get their paper here.

All this has made me think, and I hope it will make you too. Technology can help us drive our businesses better and understanding your needs can be the first step on your journey, which was the theme of our event in the UK. I spoke to a number of the delegates and I hope to share some of their stories in later posts.

Chalk Talk with John: What Does User Experience Mean to You?

Author: John Brunswick

The "Chalk Talk with John" series will explore the practical value of Middleware in the context of two fictional communities, shared through analogies aligned to enterprise technology.  This format offers business stakeholders and IT a common language for understanding the benefits of technology in support of their business initiatives, regardless of their current level of technical knowledge. I will endeavor to showcase an episode highlighting business use cases and how technology plays a role in business on a bi-weekly basis.

The debut episode highlights the benefits of user experience capabilities supplied by Portal technologies, by juxtaposing the communities of Middleware Fields and Codeaway Valley with regard to the time and effort their residents spend performing everyday tasks.  This comparison provides insight into the benefits of leveraging a common user experience foundation to support the tasks that our employees, customers and partners engage in on a daily basis with our organizations.

Take a look and let me know your thoughts!
