OUM Support for Cloud Implementations
By user713452 on Apr 14, 2014
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.
