Where’s My View?

With release 6.1 and continued with 6.2, the Home page access pull down was renamed from Select a View to Access Method By and the options were changed.  The view access is still available, but now you also can access applicable OUM content by role (Project Manager or Team Member) or by Supplemental Guidance (Solution Delivery Guide or Supplemental Guide) or by Method Repository.  So let’s talk about each of these options as well as review the View option.

By Role

Access is defined for two roles; Project Manager and Team Member.

The OUM for Project Managers access page provides quick links into OUM content that is applicable to Project Managers.  This includes the Manage views, the templates, and valuable resources such as Planning a Project using OUM and Tailoring OUM for your Project.

The OUM for Team Members access page provides quick links for all other roles.  This includes the Method Repository, the templates, examples, mappings and techniques.

By Supplemental Guidance

Supplemental Guidance access is by Solution Delivery Guide or Supplemental Guide.  Selecting either of these takes you to the appropriate section of the Supplemental Guide Index.  This access selection enables you to go straight to the supplemental guidance that best fits your immediate needs.  Choose Solution Delivery Guide to access the Cloud Application Services Implementation Approach Solution Delivery Guide.  OUM contains a good number of Supplemental Guides.  The guides are presented in alphabetical order. 

By Method Repository

The Method Repository section of the Access Method By pull down provides access to the core OUM process overviews, task overviews and templates for each focus area.

By View

If you are familiar with previous releases of OUM and you want to know what happened to your view, start with the ==VIEW== section of the Access Method By pull down.  This section is organized as follows, Manage, Envision, Implement, Business Process Management (BPM), Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Full Method.  Selecting the ==VIEW==, Manage, Envision, Implement or Full Method takes you to the appropriate section of the View Catalog.  Once in the View Catalog, choose your view.  Selecting Business Process Management (BPM) or Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) takes you to the associated landing page and you can then choose your view.

OUM Support for Cloud Implementations

You’ve heard that the Oracle® Unified Method supports the entire Enterprise IT lifecycle, including support for the successful implementation of every Oracle product, but you may be wondering if that includes support for implementing Oracle Cloud Application Services.

The answer is an unequivocal “Yes”. Since OUM 6.0, the method pack has included the OUM Cloud Application Services Implementation Approach Solution Delivery Guide

What is the OUM Cloud Application Services Implementation Approach?

The Oracle® Unified Method (OUM) Cloud Application Services Implementation Approach is Oracle’s lightweight approach for implementing applications running on a cloud infrastructure. It emphasizes an out-of-the-box approach and adoption of best practices inherent in the application products as a foundational element of the approach.

What does the OUM Cloud Application Services Implementation Approach currently cover?

The OUM Cloud Application Services Implementation Approach is applicable to Oracle Fusion Applications, Oracle Taleo Cloud Service, and Oracle RightNow Cloud Service implementations running on a cloud infrastructure. Support for additional Oracle Cloud Application Services will be included over time.

While the focus of the approach is on the implementation of the standard, out-of-the-box functionality embodied in the products selected for implementation, the approach also includes support for selected additional services, such as integrations, data loads, project-specific documentation, training, etc.

In what form is the OUM Cloud Application Services Implementation Approach Solution Delivery Guide provided?

In the early releases in which it appeared, the Solution Delivery Guide took the form of a PDF document, which contained all of the guidance, but without any templates. In the latest release, OUM 6.2, the Solution Delivery Guide is provided in HTML format with access to templates via links, just like other OUM Views. The PDF version of the Solution Delivery Guide is still included in the method pack, accessible from a separate Resources page, but the same guidance and templates are now available in the familiar HTLM format.

More about the structure of the OUM Cloud Application Services Implementation Approach in my next post.
