SOA and Oracle Fusion Middleware for the Busy IT Professional by Frank Munz

Not everybody is starting up JDeveloper first thing in the morning in order to work with Oracle SOA Suite. Let’s face it: Instead of being an SOA expert, any given IT specialist is more likely a certified DB admin, a Java developer or somebody who was just told by his manager to take care of that Oracle Service Bus installation. In case you are one of them and looking into SOA and the related Oracle products this posting is written for you.

Technology and Oracle

The following two recipes provide firstly a no-nonsense explanation of Service Oriented Architecture (the first part is not related to Oracle at all !) and secondly an overview of Oracle’s Fusion Middleware (OFM) product stack.

ofm stack

The description is deliberately easy to read and I intentionally didn’t reuse any fancy marketing slides since they are often too generic and contain too many buzzwords. Read the full article here.

SOA Blueprint: A Toolbox for Architects – article at OTN and Service Technology Magazine

image32this article introduces the foundations that need to be established in order to implement functional SOA processes. Rather than presenting specific tools, we will define a broadly applicable SOA blueprint whose individual modules can be topped up with commercial products or increasingly available open source offerings.

A Company Blueprint

Upon examination of Figure 1, the vision of adaptive enterprise computing is illustrated as a meta-blueprint for the overall company with three differentiated levels:

  • Infrastructure Level - This level is formed by databases, storage systems, application servers, and all other IT resources that are required to run IT systems.
  • Application System Level - This level houses entire applications, both individual applications and standard software, as well as services relating to SOA, workflow and BPM systems.
  • Process Management Level - Functional requirements are manifested in the process design and then implemented at the lower levels.

Figure 1An advanced service-oriented architecture is the most effective option for implementing the functional requirements at the application-system level. The more superior the mapping of existing business services to the functional steps in process models is, the more the business-IT gap shrinks.

Various back-coupling loops represent the actual added value of this meta-blueprint, meaning consistent usage of services and technical processes enables the measuring of KPIs. This in turn facilitates process control and ultimately the optimization of processes. The more progress a company makes in implementing their SOA, the greater and faster are the effects to be achieved for adaptive
enterprise computing. ... read the full article here

Industrial SOA article at OTN and Service Technology Magazine

image3SOA and service-orientation have laid the foundation for a variety of emergent service technology innovations, while the original building blocks of SOA and service-orientation continue to evolve by embracing fundamental service technologies, concepts and practices. These new technology innovations do not replace service-orientation; they use it as their basis.

Service-orientation continues to evolve towards a factory approach, towards industrializing integrated platforms, such as BI, master data management (MDM), mobile front-ends, BPM, adaptive processes, Big Data and Cloud Computing – all of which add architectural layers upon SOA-based infrastructure. All of these technologies can interface via standardized data and functions, published as service contracts, in order to avoid redundancy – that's service-orientation. Let's take a closer look. The amount of data, which companies produce and store tends to grow on an on-going basis. This includes structured data (for example, from ERP systems or data warehouses), as well as unstructured data (for example, from e-mails). With the rise of social media services like twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and the emphasis on Customer Experience Management, the amount of data and data sources has increased dramatically. To integrate all of these data sources through an SOA-approach is essential. The models, principles and patterns behind SOA and service-orientation can be applied to formalize interoperability between... read the full article here

With Oracle BPM Suite 11g PS6 the modeling, simulation, implementation and execution of business processes in a multi-user environment is straightforward – Danilo Schmiedel , OPITZ CONSULTING

imageWe know quite a few companies who are in the situation that processes are unpredictable, complex, difficult to model and versatile. Their software users complain that they cannot make proper business decisions because they are forced to certain process steps and their processes rely on worker knowledge and involve a lot of human participants. Think about a claim notification after a car accident - it is very difficult to model each potential option of it and a lot of effort and time is necessary to bring all varieties into the process. Think about the user interface – it has to be very dynamic in order to make optimal business decisions. With Oracle BPM Suite 11.1.1.7 and its new case management functionalities we are now ready to address requirements like those mentioned above. This is the base to provide complete BPM solutions. I couldn’t wait to play with the software and I am really happy to discuss and demonstrate the new product capabilities with our customers. Danilo Schmiedel , OPITZ CONSULTING
