The Top 10 most popular items shared through my social networks for the week of August 5-11, 2012.
- Leveraging Governance to Sustain
Enterprise Architecture Efforts
SOA, Cloud computing, Big Data, Mobile computing, BOYD and other factors are already rearranging the enterprise IT landscape in much the same way Godzilla rearranges Tokyo. The potential for these technologies is incredible. But with each new technological innovation, "it is critical to reevaluate relevant EA governance," says Eric Stephens. "Otherwise, the architectural fragmentation that exists with legacy technology will manifest itself by an order of magnitude with newer generations of technology." More insight from Eric in this white paper.

- Cloud and business transformation: this time, it's different
"The real revolution is only just begun," says Joe McKendrick. "At the high end, private and hybrid clouds are shifting the business models of many non-IT corporations and organizations, turning them into technology or cloud providers themselves. At the lower end, we have a whole generation of startups and small businesses that are built entirely on the cloud. In between, we have 'loosely coupled' corporations that essentially serve as brokers of services they get from somewhere else and deliver to their customers."

- My Clustering Cheet Sheet | Rick Ramsey
The question is: "Why would somebody complicate our sysadmin lives by suggesting we install Oracle RAC on Oracle Solaris Cluster? What would that be, highly-available high availability?" Rick "OTN Garage" Ramsey has the answer.

- Getting Oracle artifacts into a Maven environment
"Maven provides the ability to load any artifact into a Maven repository and to give it a set of coordinates," says Fusion Middleware A-Team blogger Mark Nelson. "This means that you can easily add the Oracle provided artifacts to your own Maven repository, or to a shared repository in your environment (e.g. a Maven Repository Manager)."
- Quick introduction of what and why of Oracle Database Edition Based Redefinition
"Availability is a highly desirable aspect of Fusion Middleware application," says Oracle ACE Director Lucas Jellema. "Planned downtime therefore sounds quite silly. However, the introduction of changes to applications has typically been associated with the roll out and redeployment of the application causing disruption of service - through loss of existing conversations and unavailability during the deployment process. Several approaches and mechanisms are available in the Oracle stack that will help substantially reduce the loss of uptime because of changes to applications."
Thought for the Day
