Oracle Enterprise Repository 11g Released
By Dave Berry-Oracle on Jan 29, 2010
We are pleased to announce the 11g release of the Oracle Enterprise Repository. The Enterprise Repository is a key component of Oracle's SOA Governance solution, and this release features some exciting new capabilities including...
Highly Automated Closed Loop Governance
In 11gR1, OER harvests assets throughout the entire lifecycle. This saves customers huge amounts of time, provides the visibility that they need to manage their SOA, and ensures that asset information is fresh, which reduces the risk associated with making decisions based on stale data. In addition, a summary of runtime performance metrics is being provided to OER from Enterprise Manager Management Pack Plus for SOA, as well as from third party tools. This allows service providers and service consumers to see whether their services are performing as expected.
Support for SOA Suite 11g
In the 11g release, OER is harvesting more deeply from Oracle's own products, including Oracle Service Bus and SOA Suite. This provides Oracle customers with additional value - 1+1=3. Moreover OER is providing the "glue" to allow service bus and SOA Suite to seamlessly interoperate. OER is a critical part of the solution for customers that want to take advantage of both SOA Suite and OSB.
Support for Oracle Applications
The OER 11gR1 release targets the needs of Application Integration Architecture(AIA) customers. OER is teaming up with Oracle's upcoming Application Integration Architecture 3.0, so the Enterprise repository is now the container through which customers can view their integrations. In addition, OER provides customers with a view of the adapters exposed by enterprise applications such as eBusiness, Siebel, Peoplesoft, JD Edwards, SAP .... OER can also harvest the WSDL services exposed by enterprise applications. Customers can use this information to build out their application integrations. OER provides end-to-end visibility between the customers applications, providing the visibility needed to conduct impact analysis.
Customers can download the new release, and access the new documentation, from the OER OTN site:
