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.

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.

Unleashing Your Mobile Workforce

Author: Kevin Moulton, Oracle

Your employees use their smartphones and tablets in every aspect of their lives. The days of carrying a second mobile device for corporate calls and emails are over. They don't want to carry multiple devices to do the same job, and they sure don't want to have to go to the office or go back to their desk just to access some corporate application. They want mobile access!

Sure, you have to deal with the challenges of BYOD, but that's for another day. Today, let's talk about how to get your employees what they are demanding. In other words, how do you unleash your mobile workforce?

There are many advantages. Think of your employees out in the field, in the showroom with your customers, or on your manufacturing floor, with all of the data they need to answer questions, make decisions, or write proposals right at their fingertips. Think about the efficiency of your business processes when your employees can complete their workflow tasks anytime, and from anywhere.

Developing Mobile Apps

Oracle ADF Mobile allows you to quickly develop applications using your existing HTML, CSS and Java skills that can be deployed to iOS and Android. There is no need to train or hire staff to write native mobile OS code.  ADF Mobile uses HTML5 for displaying content and Java for business logic. Write the code once, and you have an app that will work on the Apple and Android smartphones and tablets that your employees own and carry. ADF Mobile will render the content appropriately for whatever device the content need be displayed on. In this way, ADF mobile gives you the flexibility of a mobile web app combined with the control of the device capabilities of a native app, such as camera control, location services, and contacts. It is truly the best of both worlds.

Connecting to Back-End Data

The key to a successful mobile workforce is access to applications and data. You want your employees to have access to what they need to get their jobs done without having to go back to the office or back to their desks. Most mobile apps will connect to an application server in order to retrieve, create, and modify data. With ADF Mobile and Weblogic, you can connect to your back-end data with REST-based web services. Weblogic Server supports the WebSocket protocol, included in the HTML5 standard, which allows the client and the server to send data independently of one another over a single connection.



While REST and JSON can be used to connect your mobile apps to your back-end data, enterprise applications are generally not built using these technologies. You need a translator to mediate the changes in protocol and data formats between the mobile apps and your back-end applications. Oracle Service Bus is that mediator. 

Oracle Service Bus can provide a connection via many protocols, including REST, SOAP, HTTP, JMS, RMI, and FTP. Adapters are available for numerous applications, including E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, Siebel, and SAP.

Business Process Management

Human interaction is often required to complete a business process. For example, expense reports must be approved by managers, tasks need to be routed through different departments, and purchases need to be requested, approved, and fulfilled. With your mobile workforce, your employees will demand the ability to complete their workflow tasks on their smartphones and tablets.  Oracle Business Process Management (BPM) can accomplish your workflow needs, and BPM includes a task list application for iPad, iPhone, and Android.

Summary

The pressure to provide mobile access to enterprise applications is growing by the day.  Oracle Fusion Middleware provides all of the components you need to build mobile apps and give them access to your back end applications and data.

Oracle provides a complete solution to unleash your mobile workforce.

Oracle OpenWorld 2013 - Highlights from Oracle Cloud Application Foundation with WebLogic, Coherence, and more….

Originally Published on  Cloud Application Foundation Blog

Author: Ruma Sanyal, Director, Oracle

Interest in Cloud and Mobility drove significant focus on Oracle Cloud Application Foundation products at this year’s Oracle OpenWorld . In case you missed it, here is a recap:

Oracle WebLogic Server received significant limelight in Executive Vice President Thoman Kurian’s keynote -- The Oracle Cloud Platform: Database as a Service. Java as a Service. Complementing the existing Oracle Cloud Platform Services, the new Oracle Java as a Service provides full control of dedicated Oracle WebLogic Server clusters, supports any Java application, and gives users greater flexibility and choice over their services.

In the classic roadmap session by CAF vice president of product management Mike Lehmann, Mike focused on the recent 12.1.2 release. The session provided insights into how Oracle is evolving this infrastructure to be the next-generation application foundation for its customers to build on in a private cloud setting, Oracle's vision, product plans, and roadmap for this server infrastructure, and how it will be used in the rapidly maturing cloud infrastructure space. We hope the presentation helped you make key decisions about running your enterprise applications on Oracle's enterprise Java server foundation.

Oracle Coherence provided a many sessions at OpenWorld, focused around improving the customer experience with real-time data processing and application scalability to meet mobile and cloud demands. Many customers were excited to learn that Coherence can now update the data cache in real-time, delivering on the expectations of instantaneous updates. All sessions were well-attended, with several customers noting that the 12c release of Coherence was helping them solve strategic problems for both their organization and their own customers.

Developers, Mobile and Cloud!

Chris Tonas kicked off exciting development trends in his General Session “Emerging Trends in Application Development” which covered Oracle’s perspective in addressing the development opportunities in mobile and cloud environments. Mobile continues to be a dominant topic and Chris discussed real-world applications built with Oracle ADF Mobile, a Java based hybrid-mobile framework that helps Java developers build hybrid-mobile apps for iOS and Android from one code base. Java’s mantra to write once, deploy to many – lives on in the mobile arena!

Furthering Oracle’s focus on mobile and cloud computing trends, Chris introduced Oracle Mobile Cloud Services, a mobile backend as a service (MBaaS) that helps mobile app developers readily create more powerful, sophisticated applications that tap into enterprise backend services and simplify enterprise mobile connectivity. Learn more.

Even if you missed this years OpenWorld, you can watch all the keynotes and general sessions here. In addition, you can catch all the current trends and solutions by attending an Oracle Day 2013, the OTN Virtual Developer Day – Harnessing WebLogic and Oracle Coherence, and other Cloud Application Foundation events at following site (link)

2013 Oracle Excellence Awards for Fusion Middleware Innovation

We joined together on Monday afternoon at Oracle OpenWorld in the beautiful Lam Research Theater at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco to celebrate the winners of Fusion Middleware Innovation.

Our relationship with our customers and partners is a relationship whereby we provide ongoing technology innovation and our customers and partners take that technology and teach us new ways to innovate.

Striving for success is what drives Oracle and its customers and partners to continually discover innovative uses for Oracle technology and to deploy successful and groundbreaking solutions and best practices.

This program started 7 years ago with the intent of recognizing customers for achieving significant business value through innovative uses of Oracle Fusion Middleware. When we first held the awards in 2007, we received 68 submissions across just a few categories and products. 

For the last 7 years we have recognized and honored close to 150 award winners spanning multiple categories across Fusion Middleware. This year, we received over 260+ nominations from Oracle Fusion Middleware customers across 8 categories. This year we selected 18 winners. The award is global and every year, we are grateful to receive submissions from around the world.

The success of the Oracle Excellence Awards for Fusion Middleware Innovation program is due to the support of our Oracle leads, product teams, sales teams, marketing, senior management, judges, partners and user group communities. However, the true success of the award program has always been our customers that have taken the time to submit their nominations and compete intensely for the chance to become a recognized leader of Innovation.

Congratulations to all our Fusion Middleware Innovation Winners for 2013!
