Lonneke Dikmans and I presented the following two sessions on Oracle OpenWorld 2009 that can be viewed here:
Approach to Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g
This session presents an approach to the strategic Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g components, using a customer case and in-depth knowledge of the new Oracle SOA Suite 11g. The case study covers a car leasing firm that migrated from Oracle SOA Suite 10g and Oracle WebCenter 10g to Oracle’s strategic platform with Oracle WebLogic solutions and Oracle Application Development Framework 11g.
- Overview of the customer’s SOA environment and infrastructure
- Migrating to Oracle WebLogic solutions and Oracle Application Development Framework 11g and how a SOA environment affects the transition
- New features of Oracle SOA Suite 11g and how to migrate to it, with a focus on Oracle Service Bus and Service Component Architecture
Portals: The Way to Realize User Experience in a Service-Oriented Architecture? (IOUG/ODTUG)
Portals seem like a natural fit for realizing the front end in a SOA. This session describes two customer cases in which portals were used to present services to end users. In the first case, a Dutch municipality used Oracle Portal in conjunction with Oracle SOA Suite to offer personalized information and products and services to citizens. In the second case, a car leasing company used Oracle WebCenter as a process portal for users for part of its procurement process. In both cases, the portal did not offer the expected benefits to the organization or the end users. The presentation covers possible use cases for the application of portal technology and the critical success factors for portals in SOA and BPM environments.
