OpenWorld and JavaOne 2012 so far, and we're only halfway!

Not surprisingly the main focus of OpenWorld so far is Cloud and Cloud-related services and products. Oracle is further expanding its Cloud offerings in different areas by means of:

  • Offering IaaS (Infrastructure as as Service) next to PaaS and SaaS;
  • Presenting various of its Cloud products;
  • Announcing the Oracle Private Cloud for organizations that want infrastructure and data to be located on premise, while Oracle supplies and manages the infrastructure as a service. This is useful for organizations that have strict demands for location and control of sensitive data.

There's no escaping Oracle in San Francisco this week

Obviously this focus is not only seen in the big keynotes, but also felt in the various sessions at OpenWorld and JavaOne. For example with the announcement of the new "Pluggable" Oracle 12c Database that is engineered with multi-tenancy in mind. Another example is the excellent presentation that Doug Clarke gave at JavaOne today on the capabilities of EclipseLink. EclipseLink supports different multi-tenancy models: shared or dedicated applications integrating with shared or dedicated databases.

So how about Vennster's involvement in OpenWorld and JavaOne so far this year? Among others, we attended the ACE Director Briefing, participated in the Fusion Middleware Partner Advisory Council, hooked up with the SOA and BPM community, and will participate in an Oracle Technology Network vidcast by Bob Rhubart. We also presented several sessions of which you can read more in upcoming blogs.
