know this posting is a bit late but at the end of January I took part
in a proof of concept workshop for PaaS4Sass and it’s been a
rollercoaster ride ever since.
When I was thinking about moving to Certus one of the things that attracted me was there intent to write extensions for Oracle’s CloudApplications using the just announced PaaS4SaaS solution.
attended Oracle Open World with an open mind and trying to learn as
much as I could about the solutions. The Larry Ellison demo was really
impressive but then Oracle has always been a brilliant marketing
I came back to UK and set about validating what was
available, some of the components Database and Java Cloud had been
available for a while but I wanted or would want to also use the Process
and Integration Cloud offerings.
As regular readers of this blog will know, I am an OracleApplications User Experience advocate
and am very committed to the user experience work that goes into Oracle
Cloud Applications. Extensions delivered by Certus will have this same
user experience and I made this video on the half of Certus.
user experience team have been given funding by Thomas Kurian who is
personally committed to making PaaS4SaaS work, to carry out a number of
proof of concept workshops with Oracle partners. The UX team asked
Certus to be part of this. Certus have not been a development company
and so in the same way customers come to us because we are the best at
implementing cloud applications we looked for a partner to help us with
development, and weselected eProseed who have the same commitment to UX as we do.
workshop took place in London at the end of January with four people
from each of Oracle UX, eProceed and Certus taking part. We work through
a use-case taken from an existing Application from one of our customers
who is considering modernising this and moving it to the cloud. In
three days we were able to build a working application and prove to
ourselves that when the customer says, “go” we will be able to deliver
what they need.
Oracle UX team have in their blog already covered the workshop and I have also written about it in the AppAdvantage blog
I am a guest author for. The following month I took part in the Partner
SOA Community Forum in Budapest when we had the opportunity to work
with product management teams of both the Process and Integration Cloud
offerings and further validate our approach, understanding the
possibilities and the constraints. The UX team also had a stand there. I was very pleased on behalf off both Certus and eProceed to accept the first Community Cloud award.
These awards are a bit like the Oscars and awarded to individuals
Lonneke from eProseed and myself, however we had a similar thank you to
all those involved in our acceptance speech. The Community Leader Jurgen
Kress said: I awarded my first SOA Community Outstanding
Contribution for Cloud to Debra Lilley of Certus Solutions and Lonneke
Dikmanns of eProseed because they not only took on board the messaging
of PaaS 4 SaaS from the last Oracle Open World, but also their
collaboration between an Applications partner and a Middleware partner,
sought out answers and training and with Oracle Development giving
feedback and validating their approach in this area. All good things
but bringing that back to the community and sharing is the outstanding
contribution. Read the complete article here.
