Cloud Application Foundation Rocks OpenWorld

Author: Jens Eckels, Princial, Technology Product Marketing, Oracle
Halloween is upon us, so of course we're all wearing orange, carving pumpkins and planning our evenings to either go trick or treating with the kids, stay home and hand out candy or leave town and avoid the neighborhood crowds like a Halloween Grinch. We're also busying ourselves in the aftermath of OpenWorld 2014, where WebLogic, Coherence and other CAF products had a lot for show-and-tell. So, here are some useful links, topics and recaps just for you.

All treats, no tricks.
And maybe a few bad Halloween puns for good measure.
This year, OpenWorld understandably had a cloud emphasis, and the sessions for WebLogic and Coherence were no exception. We explored how you could keep cloud migrations from "goblin" up your IT budget (sorry for that groaner) as you look at moving from on-premise to the cloud. We looked at some of the advantages of using Coherence in tandem with WebLogic as a strategic in-memory data grid, "witch" allows you to process data in real time and offload back-end services. We held developer sessions on how open technologies like Chef and Puppet are helping you provision your infrastructure. And of course, sessions on Java Cloud Service itself that provides an easy way to move your workloads from on-premise into the public cloud (it's not as "terrifying" as you might think).

No one likes hunting all over for information, so we'll help you be a lazy "bones" by provding you some links here. Boo-ckle your seat belts and enjoy the ride through the internet - if you have the "guts."
Editor's note: I am very, very sorry for suggesting we use Halloween jokes. I didn't foresee they would be so awful. Maybe I should have read my horror-scope. Please click the links anyway.

Keynotes and General Sessions
Slideshare Presentations











We had a great time at OOW 2014, and we're looking forward to seeing in 2015 to keep you on top of your game.

Have a boo-tiful, safe and exciting Halloween and beyond!

Developer Recap: Fusion Middleware at OpenWorld 2014

Author: Jens Eckels, Principal, Technology Product Marketing

Oracle OpenWorld is over, but there's still plenty to consume! Much of the developer attention was focused on JavaOne down the road, but that doesn't mean we forgot about you! Here's a brief recap of the goings-on, some sessions you may have missed, and some useful links. Hopefully, you can take a few minutes and get all caught up.
Sessions and Keynotes
Just for you, we had a ton of OOW sessions focused on developing for Fusion Middleware. These didn't just focus on Oracle products, but also how using popular tools and frameworks can help you achieve your goals faster. These sessions focused on everything from mobile development to DevOps, with a specific focus on - you guessed it - cloud. Some useful links:

OpenWorld Keynote and Session Rewinds
JavaOne Keynotes
OpenWorld General Sessions

Yeah, yeah, yeah (you might be heard to say).
Those are all big-picture things that don't affect me on a daily basis (you might think).
You're difficult to please, aren't you? Ok, then. Let us try something else...

If you're still assuming OpenWorld isn't right for you as a developer, check out some of the sessions we completed in 2014, and we can hopefully change your mind for OpenWorld 2015.

   • A Guide to Team Development in the Cloud with Oracle Developer Cloud Service
   • Innovating in the Core: Development with Oracle WebLogic Server 12c
   • Next-Generation Oracle WebLogic Server Provisioning: Puppet, Chef, and More
   • Developing Oracle Fusion Middleware Applications in the Cloud
   • Amplify Service Integration Developer Productivity with Oracle SOA Suite 12c

And of course much more. These five examples are a sampling meant to make you hungry for more.
Kind of like good chips and salsa before your tacos arrive.

Events and Free Beer
Still not convinced we care? Well, we do. And we had several appreciation events to show you. We even handed out a lot of, er, libations, to prove it. If you didn't come to OpenWorld 204, you missed out on:

   • OTN parties that take over Howard Street
   • Live bands, including some local favorites
   • The OTN Lounge, where you could send a Tweet, and it gave you beer. Really.
   • Big-picture sessions about mobile and cloud, and how they're changing, well, everything

We had a great time with you at OOW 2014, and we're looking forward to even more developer events in 2015 to keep you on top of your game.

Mobile Highlights from OOW14


Another successful Oracle OpenWorld! We saw drones cruising over Howard St. as well as the America’s Cup trophy and championship sailboat, plus the concert Wednesday night had some great weather. We dialed in the weather. Tthere’s an app for that,  I think it’s called Oracle ExaWeather Control Center  and it's built on Oracle MAF ;-)   There were a myriad of mobile sessions and hands-on-labs as mobile at Oracle continues into into high gear.  Some highlights included:


Oracle Alta User Interface

Used by Oracle’s cloud applications, cloud services and available for customer-developed applications, new UI design principles deliver elegant user interfaces and experiences for web and mobile applications. Quote from the audience: "We were thinking of starting to rewrite our front end in AngularJS, but this new Alta skin looks awesome!”


Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS)- Simplify enterprise connectivity, any app, any data, any data - secure. The demos were great and the hands on labs were packed. Mobile + Cloud = Rethink Mobile


Preview of Oracle Mobile Application Accelerator (MAX) - a cloud-based offering that brings mobile application development capabilities to professionals with no previous software development experience. With Mobile Application Accelerator, program managers, power users, and business professionals can develop mobile applications quickly and visually through their web browser.

Voila! Enhanced Oracle Mobile Application Framework + Oracle Mobile Security Suite. To simplify secure mobile application development, Oracle is deepening the integration between Oracle Mobile Application Framework and Oracle Mobile Security Suite as part of the mobile application lifecycle management process. This integrated approach makes it easier for developers to create a seamless user experience, without compromising security.

Are you developing with Eclipse?  These two were announced prior to OpenWorld, and worth repeating - a new version of Oracle Mobile Application Framework development is now available on the latest update of Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse!

And as with the continued adoption and use of Oracle Mobile Application Framework throughout Oracle and its customers, there are 14 New mobile apps for Oracle E-Business Suite!

Need to go hands on with mobile?  Mobile Application Framework Challenge - The Oracle Mobile Application Challenge invites developers to demonstrate how the Oracle Mobile Application Framework can be used to create and/or extend an enterprise application through mobile technology and then deploy that application to a handheld device. 


If you weren’t able to make some of these great sessions, don’t worry.  Oracle Technology Network is sponsoring a Virtual Technology Summit covering mobile topics and more.

Jump Start Your Digital Strategy at Oracle OpenWorld

GEN8238: Enable Applications for the Cloud, Mobile and Beyond
Tuesday, September 30, 3:45 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Moscone West 3018

Mark the session in your schedule builder today.

At Oracle OpenWorld next week, Oracle Group Vice President will be discussing how to get your applications infrastructure ready to tackle digital disruption. Digital is all the buzz this year and our customer organizations are building digital strategies. Here, we bring to you a recent interview with Oracle's Group Vice President, Amit Zavery to provide additional context to his AppAdvantage Keynote session at Oracle OpenWorld.

As published in September edition of Oracle Fusion Middleware newsletter. Subscribe today.

Twenty five percent of businesses will lose competitive ranking by 2017 as a result of digital business incompetence. Digital disruption has changed customer expectations of business-to-business and business-to-consumer enterprises. Organizations are using the cloud and mobile and social technologies to drive innovation and outsell their competition.

Oracle Fusion Middleware newsletter sat down with Amit Zavery, group vice president, Oracle Fusion Middleware, to get details on how digital business is influencing Oracle's middleware portfolio and learn about customers' key business drivers for adapting to digital business.

Q: In the wake of the digital revolution, what are some of the strategic goals for Oracle Fusion Middleware?
A: The customers we've talked to are going through the process of modernizing their infrastructure to get the most out of cloud computing and mobile initiatives, so we have invested heavily and added a lot of functionality around cloud computing, mobile technology, and engineered systems, particularly around big data and fast data, the Internet of Things, Oracle AppAdvantage for Oracle Applications customers, and digital business.

With this in mind, our most recent product releases in Oracle Fusion Middleware have been architected to help our customers modernize their IT architectures—not only to allow them to build, extend, and deploy mobile applications more quickly, but also to enable them to more easily deliver information across different digital channels.

Q: What are the top three areas of focus for Oracle Fusion Middleware when it comes to mobile innovation?
A: Mobile technology continues to be top-of-mind for consumers and enterprises, and middleware is a big part of a successful mobility implementation. Our customers are deep into building and deploying mobile applications. The big goal here is to simplify enterprise mobility and enable our customers to build, integrate, secure, and deploy mobile applications across multiple operating systems and form factors without having to update each application whenever something changes on the mobile side. In a recent global survey published by CIO Strategic Marketing Services and Triangle Publishing Services, IT leaders cited that more than 70 percent of their time is spent on integration, security, quality assurance testing, and design work.

In an ongoing effort to simplify enterprise mobility, Oracle Mobile Suite has brought together Oracle's mobile application framework and integration capabilities into one packaged solution. Many vendors offer siloed products or different technologies for mobile versus cloud versus the on-premises systems that customers then have to tie together themselves. Oracle provides end-to-end development, deployment, and security for mobile applications that leverage the same industry-leading business innovation platform—Oracle Fusion Middleware.

Oracle is continuing to deepen its mobile offerings. For example, last year it acquired mobile containerization technology through the Bitzer Mobile acquisition, which is now integrated and offered as part of Oracle Mobile Security Suite. Today, Oracle's mobile security solution contains core components that support mobile application management, access management, and security.

Q: Cloud computing is also huge for many companies. Can you tell us about Oracle's vision to help CIOs with integration and platform optimization?
A: The big challenge we are seeing here is how to integrate cloud-based applications with on-premises applications. The integration functionality that Oracle SOA Suite 12c offers helps integrate applications, business processes, and information flow across on-premises and cloud services, whether it's Oracle applications and services, third-party cloud services, or third-party applications. As an aside, it is the same integration infrastructure you will leverage for mobile too.

Additionally, our middleware is available itself as a platform as a service, either as a public or private cloud. You can even run both—and you don't have to rewrite a single line of code. Oracle is the only company that can provide such transportability and flexibility between public and private cloud deployments.

Oracle's cloud platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offerings help enterprise IT and independent software vendor developers rapidly build and deploy rich applications or extend Oracle Cloud software-as-a-service apps using an enterprise-grade cloud platform based on the industry's #1 database and application server.

Q: Another aspect of the cloud lies in companies' ability to leverage middleware components as a hosted service. What can you tell us about new middleware-as-a-service capabilities from Oracle?
A: What we hear is all about the need for speed—companies really want to get their applications out quickly. PaaS offerings such as Oracle Java Cloud Service let you spin up an instance in less than five minutes, while full-blown application-server-as-a-service offerings extend that with full administration and control. Expect to hear more from Oracle on cloud services over the next few months and at Oracle OpenWorld.

Inside the OOW Session CON7646: Simpilify SaaS-On-Premises Integration

By: Srikant Subramaniam, Director, Product Management, Oracle

CON7646: Simplify SaaS and On-Premises Integration by Using Oracle Fusion Middleware

Monday, Sep 29, 10:15 AM - 11:00 AM - Moscone West – 3018

Integration involves the exchange of information between systems to achieve a specific business objective such as synchronization of customer account data for fulfilling orders. The location of an application and its data, whether in the data center or under the auspices of a cloud provider, does not change this basic business need.

With the increasing popularity of Software as a Service (SaaS), many organizations are having to deal with newer cloud-based applications, in addition to their existing on-premise systems. Without proper planning, integrating these two sets of applications can often end up with an “accidental cloud architecture” characterized by point-to-point connections from the on-premise systems to their cloud counterparts, completely bypassing any well-established integration architecture principles. These custom interfaces result in brittle connections that are difficult to upgrade when endpoints change.

Attend this session to see how Oracle Fusion Middleware provides a single set of integration tools to handle all of these integration scenarios, with direct and interchangeable connections to cloud and on-premise systems. Learn how the new Cloud Adapters in SOA Suite 12c simplify the task of developing and managing connectivity and enable you to focus on building the business logic for the integration processes.


In addition, see how all these concepts come together via an actual customer example -- where we will discuss how Ricoh Americas used Oracle SOA Suite as the framework for their SaaS and on-premise integration to minimize complexity and bring new efficiencies to their business.

Inside the OOW Session CON8363: Enabling Multi-Channel Service Delivery

By: Harish Gaur, Director, Oracle Fusion Middleware

According to Forrester, U.S. mobile phone and tablet commerce is expected to reach $293 billion by 2018, up from $114 billion in 2014. No wonder, mobile enablement of ERP, CRM, SCM and multitude of enterprise apps is a high priority for every IT organization. Its imperative organizations don’t create a fragmentation of enterprise architecture (and underlying data & processes) while doing so.

To ensure a consistent architecture across multiple channels (mobile, tablet, desktop, smart sensors), Multi-Channel Service delivery could be a key strategy - a strategy that could eventually lead to better customer experience & reduced operational costs.

Oracle Application customers rely on Oracle Fusion Middleware platform for extending their applications. We are now starting to see Oracle Fusion Middleware being leveraged by e-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, Siebel, RightNow, SalesForce.com customers to realize the vision of multi-channel service delivery.

Figure 1: Fusion Middleware is the foundation for multi-channel service delivery

As customers embark on their respective mobile strategy, enterprise architecture should be able to address the following requirements

  • How do you offer consistent customer self-service to customers/partners/employees across mobile, tablet, desktop?
  • Can you enable unified architecture to ensure developers are not duplicating business logic for different channels?
  • What is your strategy to ensure channel interactions are secured through a common identity management infrastructure?
  • Do you have centralized set of APIs across different channels to integrate with backend applications and processes?

To learn answers to these questions, please check out OpenWorld session “Bridging Mobile and Desktop: Enabling Multichannel Access to Oracle Applications” on Tuesday Sept 30th 10:45AM. You will see live demonstration of multi-channel self-service scenario across two enterprise applications (JD Edwards Enterprise One and RightNow Service Cloud) and the underlying architecture supporting it. We are also planning to invite a customer to share their journey of multi-channel service delivery.

Focusing on Mobile @ Oracle OpenWorld

Plenty of exciting trends in the industry today: Cloud, Big Data, Mobile, etc. The first two are amazing of course, but for me, it's mobile, mobile and... MOBILE.  

Why? Think back to the mozilla browser (Marc Andreessen's mozilla, not today's mozilla.org), Netscape and the nascent beginnings of the World Wide Web. Amazing times. Companies were just starting to set up their home pages, basic HTML, hyperlinks, images, ooooh, aaaah.  Yahoo! was *the* search engine back then. :-\   Anywhoo, I would pose that mobile today, we are in a similar junction. Sure, there's millions of apps on Apple's App Store and Google Play, but within the enterprise, it's just getting started. I'm talking about going beyond the simple, tactical apps such as calendaring, contacts or directory service lookup. And while mobile first a common mantra, I'm referring to mobile plus which includes and looks upon the whole enterprise holistically and adds new parameters, such as your GPS location, perhaps even your vital signs. (Apple's health kit?)  Everything is going mobile. Everything connected. But with the enterprise - scalability, security, integration, app management, user management, etc. Amazing times ahead. Ok, got that off my mind.

Oracle OpenWorld 2014 - Going Mobile!  If you're coming to the big dance, I've highlighted some key mobile sessions below. And if you see me around, and there's a bar within reach, high five me for a beer. I mean, if you read this far, and didn't already jump to the list below, I think you deserve one.   Cheers!
