Case Studies

Under the Hood

By Alan Joch

November 2010

Technologists looking under the hood of Oracle Fusion Applications will find six technical components that combine to create these next-generation applications:

Open standards. Java, BPEL, and other industry protocols build on Oracle’s existing strategy for lowering IT costs and risks.

SOA. Oracle Fusion Applications’ use of Web services and industry-standard frameworks ease customizations and integration among Oracle Fusion Applications, other Oracle applications, and third-party programs.

Embedded business intelligence. Business intelligence underpins each screen in Oracle Fusion Applications, rather than being a separate specialized tool for business users.

Enterprise 2.0. Oracle Fusion Applications adapt familiar collaboration and social networking resources for business environments.

Role-based user experiences. Extensive usability testing with users from around the world gives Oracle Fusion Applications an intuitive and productive user experience.

Software-as-a-service-ready. Oracle Fusion Applications can be deployed on premises, in a public or private cloud, or in a combination of the above.
