Back-end to the Future: Using your Existing Oracle ADF Applications as a Pillar of your Mobile Strategy, white paper

Mobility has been a significant trend in IT for several years now. Laptops have been outselling desktops since 2008, and it seems that tablet shipments will surpass desktops in 2013 and laptops in 2014. In that context, the real question for your organization is not if it will build mobile applications, but when. To negotiate this transition successfully, one cannot ignore other technology trends.

SOA in Real Life: Mobile Solutions part of the Industrial SOA article series

ind-soa-mobile-fig02Abstract: Any place, any time: the old promise from the dotcom age has never been more relevant. With the release of the iPhone, Apple set off a huge amount of hype. Many people now have a laptop with broadband Internet connection and/or WLAN or UMTS Internet access. Yet these devices are still too large, too awkward, and take too long to boot up to be usable at any time. On the other hand, almost everyone has a smartphone these days, making them more mobile than ever in today's economy.

Smartphones are enormously practical and are becoming more and more powerful. They are generally very easy to operate, can be used almost anywhere, and the mobile web is becoming both faster and cheaper. App stores are shooting up everywhere and new functions can be installed with a single click. As the saying has it: "There's an app for everything."

The use of built-in sensors provides for entirely new possibilities such as Google Maps integration, location-based services, augmented reality, etc. Built-in cameras are becoming more and more powerful and are often used as a second compact camera. Video telephony is becoming more common - not just on Skype, now long-established, but also through Apple Facetime. The speed of innovation is tremendous.

Use Cases

A very high percentage of apps are games, followed by information systems that are mainly of interest to private users. These information systems are making increased use of the built-in functions on the mobile device. For example, the system identifies my location via GPS and can provide me with information via a personalized localization. Using the integrated camera one can scan a barcode and run a price comparison through the system. Previously unthinkable "Star Trek" technology is now (almost) a reality. Soon we will have combined tricorders/communicators/tablets in a single device.

More and more companies are viewing mobile solutions as a means by which to accelerate processes, incorporate external partners more easily into processes, and lower their own process costs. We are already using numerous examples for B2C services such as booking flights by cell phone, tracking packages, and finding out delivery dates and opening hours. To optimize these functions for your own company, creative ideas are required: How can I increase customer loyalty? While B2C applications are already spreading very rapidly and probably represent the core business of all non-game apps, B2B is developing only slowly. One of the central questions here is how additional services can be offered to the business partner. According to Gartner, top growth areas include location-based services, social networks, mobile search, mobile commerce, mobile cash, context-aware services, object recognition, mobile instant messaging, mobile e-mail, and mobile video. Read the complete article here.

The articles are and will be published at OTN and the Service Technology Magazine.

Business Process Management + Social + Mobile = Recipe for Effective Customer Experience by Ajay Khanna Edit | Quick Edit | Trash | View

Most organizations know why customer experience is so important, but many companies still fail to deliver.

CXM,Business Process Management, Social, Mobile - Recipe for Effective Customer ExperienceInconsistent Customer Experiences Drive Customers Away

Not longer than a month ago, I wanted to order a mobile phone for a family member in Michigan. I was in San Jose, the high-tech capital, so I went online to the company’s website and placed the order. The phone was to be delivered to the Michigan address with an Ann Arbor area code within three days, but it didn't happen.
On the fourth day, I called the company’s support center to check the status and was told that since I had ordered via the website, I needed to wait a week for the order to get into the call center system. I waited a few more days and called back. A seemingly helpful call center agent was able to locate my order and duly informed me that the order had been canceled because the billing zip code on my credit card didn’t match the area code for the new phone number! It wasn't until I made time to visit a kiosk at the local mall that I was able to get everything resolved.

This type of service (or lack thereof) does not sit well with customers today. Customers have a choice and a voice, and the voice is amplified many folds with social media. What today’s consumers demand (or what I would have liked) is an experience that is consistent across all channels, contextual to their needs and adaptable to their situation.

Customers use multiple channels to interact with a company throughout their relationship with the company. They expect a consistent experience, no matter which interaction channel they choose. Customers don’t want to repeat the information they’ve already provided, and require companies to recall their preferences, and offer relevant products and services.

Business Process Management + Social + Mobile = Engaged Customers

Because so many customer experiences are linked to underlying business processes, Business Process Management technology is very well suited to help improve engagement with customers through different lifecycles, whether it is customer sales, support or provisioning. Combine (and integrate) that with the advantages of social and mobile and you can extend the value that was not possible in the past. Read the full article here.

SOA: Simplifying Cloud, Mobile, and On-premise Integration–Webcast October 24th 2013

Proliferation of mobile devices, data explosion, and cloud enablement has caused a dramatic shift in IT. Organizations need to rethink their application infrastructures to accommodate increased processing speeds, heightened security and availability concerns for their applications, all while meeting lowered total cost of ownership. Traditional infrastructures may not be sufficient to accommodate the diversity and complexity of integrations in this new era.

Many of today’s IT organizations rely on a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) backbone to keep their businesses running. SOA adoption and acceptance across industries have led to platform maturity at the application layer level. However, we are at the start of an era where there is a new modus operandi for organizations to thrive and deliver continuously on competitive differentiation. This change is a result of market globalization, explosion in the number of mobile devices, unparalleled growth in voluminous data and innovation that crosses organizational boundaries. Social, mobile, cloud are terms that are revolutionizing the way organizations operate.

Oracle SOA Suite is a hot-pluggable software suite to build, deploy and manage Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA).Oracle SOA transforms complex application integration into agile and reusable service-based connectivity by mediating, routing, and managing interactions between services and applications in the enterprise and in the cloud. Oracle SOA Suite's hot-pluggable architecture helps businesses lower upfront costs by allowing maximum re-use of existing IT investments and assets.

Join us on this webcast to find out how you can optimize the use of Oracle SOA Suite, simplifying integration, and what does the next generation of SOA has to offer to you.

Build Mobile App for E-Business Suite Using SOA Suite and ADF Mobile By Michelle Kimihira

With the upcoming release of Oracle ADF Mobile, I caught up with Srikant Subramaniam, Senior Principal Product Manager, Oracle Fusion Middleware post OpenWorld to learn about the cool hands-on lab at OpenWorld. For those of you who missed it, you will want to keep reading.

Author: Srikant Subramaniam, Senior Principal Product Manager,Oracle Fusion Middleware.

Oracle ADF Mobile enables rapid and declarative development of native on-device mobile applications. These native applications provide a richer experience for smart devices users running Apple iOS or other mobile platforms. Oracle ADF Mobile protects Oracle customers from technology shifts by adopting a metadata-based development framework that enables developer to develop one app (using Oracle JDeveloper), and deploy to multiple device platforms (starting with iOS and Android).

Oracle ADF Mobile also enables IT organizations to leverage existing expertise in web-based and Java development by adopting a hybrid application architecture that brings together HTML5, Java, and device native container:

  • HTML5 allows developer to deliver device-native user experiences while maintaining portability across different platforms
  • Java allows developers to create modules to support business logic and data services
  • Native container provides integration into device services such as camera, contacts, etc

All these technologies are packaged into a development framework that supports declarative application development through Oracle JDeveloper. ADF Mobile also provides out of box integratoin with key Fusion Middleware components, such as SOA Suite and Business Process Management (BPM).

Oracle Fusion Middleware provides the necessary infrastructure to extend business processes and services to the mobile device -- enabling the mobile user to participate in human tasks – without the additional “mobile middleware” layer. When coupled with Oracle SOA Suite, this combination can execute business transactions on Oracle E-Business Suite (or any Oracle Application).
