ACE Director on Clearing the ConFusion – Oracle Cloud Applications by Debra Lilley

clip_image001As I typed that title I cringed. I have been an advocate for Oracle’s development of Next Generation Applications from the day they announced Fusion, and I hated the term quickly coined by pessimists of 'Fusion – Confusion'. But now as Oracle drops the name Fusion, for its applications, I feel there really is some confusion, so I am going to use this post to clarify to this community.

Why am I writing this post for this blog? Well the problem is Oracle knows it has renamed the products, but their customers don’t. If you are attending COLLABORATE in April the stream is called Fusion Applications, and if it wasn’t the number of attendees would be very small, but more and more you need to recognise the Cloud brand. The components of Cloud that Oracle developed in their technology (okay, Fusion applications), are 100% written on Oracle Fusion Middleware, that hasn’t gone anywhere and continues to be developed, and it is the use of these Oracle Fusion Middleware technologies that Oracle AppAdvantage is all about - extending the capabilities of "Fusion" Applications with Oracle Fusion Middleware. My starting position and reason I became involved with this AppAdvantage initiative is that there is no better shop window for what Oracle Fusion Middleware can do than the applications that Oracle has developed itself.

I did try an explanation on my own blog after Oracle Open World but this time I will be more succinct.

FACT : All Fusion Applications are now Cloud Applications.

Each pillar is now renamed Oracle …. Cloud , so Fusion Financials is now part of Oracle ERP Cloud, within each pillar there are the separate offerings which are normally desecrate process areas and with discrete pricing.

FACT : Not all  Cloud Applications started Life as Fusion Applications.

As part of their Cloud journey, Oracle has acquired some native cloud-delivered applications, such as Taleo and RightNow. The plan, being executed is that these products are being unified, i.e. integrated with other offerings, where possible being delivered on the same technology stack and being given the same User Experience as Oracle’s home grown offerings.

RightNow has for some time been known as Oracle Service Cloud  and the recruiting module from Taleo as Oracle Recruiting Cloud

FACT: Cloud Applications don’t have to be SaaS

Software as a Service is the deployment of an application in a cloud environment. Oracle, or a third party in some cases, hosts the application and look after not only the infrastructure but the patching and security, and in turn you pay a subscription to use charge.

Most of these same applications could be deployed on-premise with you being responsible for all the above and with the more traditional upfront licence costs.

Oracle have called the products Cloud because they are available and are being deployed as such more and more that way.

FACT : Oracle are trying to make it easy for you to find this all in one place.

This is a great place to start: https://cloud.oracle.com/home. The Applications tab goes through the offerings and you can find the PaaS offerings to extend and strengthen your SaaS. Read the article here.

Integration Cloud Service & Process Cloud Service – first impressions by Link Consulting

imageProcess Cloud Service

“During the Beta Program and some Oracle events, we had the pleasure to try out the new Oracle Process Cloud Service (PCS). PCS was a very pleasant surprise, with an improved overall User Interface geared towards business users ease of use (think Oracle BPM Process Composer but easier) and a thorough use of Oracle’s ALTA UI. The results were very impressive, as the  UI is not only more appealing, but also offers a guided experience, which prevents errors from the users and simplifies the design and deployment of Business Processes.

During our analysis and experiments with the product, there was another aspect that clearly stood out: The actual process management features, ranging  from Realtime KPI Management charts - similar to Oracle BAM, fully integrated and available from the get-go without any kind of configuration -, to full audit and history view capabilities, quickly enabling process manipulation and error handling, with a very shallow training curves from support. It’s really brilliant.

Finally, the ability to provision and have your own BPM platform almost immediately, fully secured in the cloud, will increase the ability to respond to market inputs and requests, giving further agility to Line of Business.

The pathway to self-servicing processes is laid out. Say goodbye to over complex BPM projects that cost several hundred thousand of euros. With Oracle PCS, time-to-market can be significantly reduced, with further commitment and involvement from the business areas, with . We highly recommend it.

Integration Cloud Service

“Oracle’s Integration Cloud Services (ICS) is Oracle’s tackle on simplifying IT integrations.

Many of the SOA integration patterns aren’t really used on most real life projects, with 20% of the patterns being used 80%+ of the times. With ICS, oracle concentrated on those most used integration patterns, and worked on a user interface that made it very easy to implement them. From a few tests we made, the actual training times to implement integrations decreased by significant amount, and ICS now has very cool features, such as a hint mode that “guesses” what data matches each side of the integration point and pre-builds those connections, thus further reducing the time needed to build an integration point.

Together with Oracle’s Process Cloud Service (PCS), Oracle now offers a comprehensive set of platforms, that can help your organization move to the cloud, building rich applications in record time, fully customized to your own requirements, and with seamless Cloud to On-Premise capabilities. You must try them both.

If you use it in the right way, ICS will give your IT department the edge and quick response your Line of Business always wanted to have.
