The Foundation for Innovation At Oracle OpenWorld

Oracle Fusion Middleware 11gThis year, middleware is sure to be one of the hot topics at Oracle OpenWorld. In fact, you should mark your calendar now for the middleware stream keynote, presented by Hasan Rizvi, Senior Vice President of Oracle Fusion Middleware. Like much of the middleware track, the focus will be on innovation. How are organizations innovating their business models? Cost structures? Customer relationships? The answer is in IT and the transformational technologies currently being adopted, such as SOA, enterprise content management, business intelligence, and application grid.
The Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g resource center launched at the very end of June with Webcasts that feature Charles Phillips and Thomas Kurian, discussing what's new in the latest release. The site also points you to a whole slew of resources (white papers, podcasts, videos, and data sheets) on the specific products we've updated.
As you'll be able to tell from even a quick glance at the resource center, the four basic pillars of Oracle Fusion Middleware are that it's: complete, integrated, hot-pluggable, and best-of-breed. What do these principles mean? Read the cover story of the latest issue of Oracle Magazine for all the nuances. You'll also get a detailed discussion on how they apply to SOA, grid computing, and Enterprise 2.0—plus examples of how organizations are already realizing benefits from our standards-based approach.
If you've found some innovative uses of your middleware, share them in the comments.
