Thanks for the nice ink–OPITZ CONSULTING @ OOW 2011

Welcome to San Francisco and Oracle OpenWorld! This sentence became true since I have the pleasure of attending Oracle Open World 2011. What can I expect? Five days in San Francisco packed with Oracle technologies – from the newest hardware and software products to sneak peeks at what’s coming soon. It started last Sunday on the 4th of October with the keynote of Larry Ellison, Oracle CEO. “The power of parallel-everywhere architecture” was his theme. If you are interested you can watch the Opening Keynote on demand on oracle.com. As part of his speech he announced Oracle Exalytics – a Business Intelligence Machine, which provides extreme in-memory analytics performance.  

Yesterday Thomas Kurian, executive vice president Product Development, introduced new software products that deliver the performance of all the engineered systems (Exadata Database, Exalogic Elastic Cloud, SPARC SuperCluster and Exalytics). Furthermore he introduced Oracle Big Data Appliance and announced the release of the Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, a centralized console for managing cloud computing systems. By the way: the “c” stands for cloud.

But that’s not all! Before OpenWorld I visited the Oracle Headquarter in Redwood Shores. Of course it was very exciting and I had the chance to discuss customer cases and project solutions in a lot of interesting meetings. Special thanks to Jürgen Kress for organizing the SOA & BPM Partner Advisory Council! There a group of Oracle Ace Directors discussed together with the Oracle product management future directions and improvements. The day after I was able to see how beautiful San Francisco is! Again thanks to Jürgen who arranged a very nice sightseeing tour!!!!

Thanks for the nice ink– e-vita SOA-team @ OOW 2011

Open World 2011 was a great success with 45.000 people. I will in this posting share some of my experiences and thoughts.  You can have a short look at the announcements made at OOW here (I will only get in detail on some of them).

imageWhat Oracle-people can tell us depends very much of what is already announced, so at OOW the news are being portioned out during the week. We can get a sense of what will happen during the week (reading session titles/descriptions), but one is not sure before it is announced. The biggest thing this year is the Cloud – and I see how this has been a focus at Oracle for a long time now. I believe Cloud will be even bigger the next years. They will provide a Cloud that is a service comparable to what is available on Amazon AWS today, but the Cloud-support will also be available in all layers in the software. This is the reason why next version of Fusion Middleware will be named 12c – for cloud. First available 12c-product is Grid Control 12c – released at OOW.

Fortunately for those that were not at OOW and for those of us that missed some good sessions, Oracle has made them available for all. I think this is excellent. Content catalog

All keynotes and general sessions were also streamed live on YouTube, and Twitter made it possible to follow what colleagues and friends where experiencing in the other sessions. It is now possible to be a part of OOW even if not being there.

If there is one thing that I would like to share for newbies on OOW: Go to Demo Grounds – there you meet the experts, and they can demonstrate the products for you. They can give you the answers to your questions. It is open Monday to Wednesday, so Thursday is too late. I spent a lot of time there.

This was a busy week, from early morning to late night – the social part of OOW is as important as the sessions. There were over 300 Norwegians in SF this year, most of them at the yearly Sunday dinner at O’Foleys. As every year we met there for the daily beers from 17-19.

My week was as follows:

  • Thursday : Arriving SF
  • Friday: Webcenter Partner Advisory Council, SOA/BPM Partner Advisory Council at Oracle HQ
  • Saturday: Bicycling with SOA Community around SF, ending up in Sausalito for dinner. Thanks to Jürgen Kress for the arrangements @soacommunity
  • Sunday: ADF Methodology group, Glassfish roadmap, Norwegian Dinner.
  • Monday: Demo Grounds, Webcenter reception
  • Tuesday: Took the Application Grid certification, Application Grid Partner Advisory
    Council, SOA Partner Community Reception at Gordon Biersch
  • Thursday: SOA/BPM Customer Advisory Board, Beer and food at Thirsty Bear
  • Very,very early Friday – return to Norway

First part of OOW was very focused on HW, but Larry’s Keynote on Wednesday was the better one in my opinion. I will share some of the themes that I found interesting this OOW.

SOA/BPM

My favorite products are in the SOA/BPM space – the biggest announcement came before OOW. It was the release of BPM Suite 11.1.1.5 Feature Pack. Look here for details:

http://blogs.oracle.com/bpm/entry/bpm_suite_11_1_1

This is a release made for improving BPM, but it is also possible to apply on SOA Suite installation. One such enhancement is around Rules: improved editing in JDeveloper, tracing and testing.

One new announcement was Oracle Process Accelerators. These are Pre-built BPM solutions to automate common business processes. This will reduce cost and time to deploy, embed best practices, they will be extensible and adaptive to customer-specific needs. Processes will be both horizontal and industry-specific. This will be available at no cost, and I think will be an excellent starting point for your processes. Read more here:  http://oracleus.wingateweb.com/published/oracleus2011/sessions/15194/15194_Cho2372000.pdf

One book recommendation: Oracle Business Process Management Suite 11g Handbook – this is an excellent follow-up of the book from last year. Authored by Oracle PMs. More focusing on best practices and with a good introduction to BPM and standards. It also covers the latest version. http://blogs.oracle.com/bpm/entry/oracle_bpm_suite_11g_handbook

I am looking very much forward to even more Social BPM and Adaptive Case Management in the future. This is the product I am most enthusiastic about – and I hope for a BPM service in the cloud.

Oracle OpenWorld 2011, The Story So Far … ! image

It doesn’t matter how often you’ve visited Oracle OpenWorld before, it remains an overwhelming experience every year! The enormous crowds (over 45,000 this year), the gigantic amount of information to absorb, all the networking, business opportunities, social events and meetups with old friends and new people, all the new ideas that start bubbling in your head by listening, dicussing, asking, answering, and presenting.
Mix all of that with a proper jetlag and you’ll get a feel of the spicy cocktail that OpenWorld is :-) Returning from OpenWorld gives you a tired yet really energetic feel!
Tuesday feels a bit like the calm before the storm. Everyone digested a lot of information and attended a lot of events these last few days and is now prepping for the final encore on wednesday with Larry’s keynote and the appreciation event that evening at Treasure Island.
To give you an idea of the things going on at OOW, I’ve compiled a short list of activities we participated in so far:

  • ACE Director Briefing at Oracle HQ. Product management gives a preview of the things to be announced at OpenWorld and presents roadmaps of Oracle’s products and tools.
  • BPM and SOA Partner Advisory Council. Every year Jürgen Kress organizes a partner council at OOW in which product management present a detailed roadmap for BPM and SOA products such as Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle BPM Suite, Oracle Enterprise Repository, AIA, and so on. Partners are encouraged to provide feedback for product improvement. It’s good to see that the Oracle products in this space such as OSB and SOA Suite are mature and future versions will build on the same programming models and will be made even more stable. 
  • SOA & BPM Partner Social Event. This year Jürgen took us eBiking in San Francisco and Sausalito. Beautiful weather, beautiful scenery, and a lovely dinner at Sausalito. Excellent event. This was followed up by the SOA & BPM Community Reception at Gordon Biersch later this week. Again a great event. And on behalf of the Dutch, thanks for the "active community" award :-)

  • Enable seamless integration of process enhancements or new food products into a homogeneous and future-proof IT system

Oracle Product and Services

  • Redesigned warehouse processes and implemented Oracle SOA suite to ensure transactional warehouse data is collected only once and reflected directly in the core ERP system, which is deployed on Oracle’s JD Edwards enterpriseOne
  • Leveraged Oracle SOA suite to develop communication scripts for handhelds used by warehouse employees to deliver instant bar-coded information to the core ERP system regarding warehouse transactions of finished and semifinished products, using standard Web technology with HTML visualization
  • Streamlined work order processing by enabling warehouse staff to access most JD Edwards EnterpriseOne business functions on their mobile devices through web services developed with Oracle BPEL process manager
  • Enhanced the functional scope, performance, and stability of mobile devices used by storekeepers, optimizing the user experience while lowering maintenance costs and efforts
  • Developed process and user documentation with Oracle user productivity kit to optimize system usage and error analysis
