SOA Magazine VI coverThe SOA Magazine VI edition focuses on a summary from Oracle OpenWorld 2015. The conference market an important point for Oracle as all the Oracle PaaS services are in production, more are announced and integration starts. Let us start from the beginning of the Platform as a Service (PaaS) journey for Oracle; at last year’s OpenWorld Oracle announced several PaaS services in advance of availability. Based on Java Cloud Service, which is available for more than a year, Oracle grow the portfolio within the last 12 months. With the majority in the PaaS service, which became wildly available, the European Partners are leading the adoption to the cloud.

Let’s take a look why, with more 50% of the global specialized partners are based in Europe, it is easy for them to join the journey. Oracle offers the same middleware software on-premises as on the cloud. This enables customers and partners to adopt easy and to secure investments. Over the last 12 months, our partners have proven successful cloud adoption by building proof of concepts, projects and showcasing our PaaS service. Customer can choose from a variety of cloud service offerings and first applications at the Oracle Cloud Marketplace for example the Amis Cloud Activator Service. Oracle crossed successful the PaaS Cloud Chasm.

What is the next step in our joint cloud journey? During Oracle OpenWorld 2015 the keynotes focused on the integrated hybrid cloud. Integrated with Developer Cloud Service and also within each other. A great example is the HCL predictive maintenance showcase. The use case includes the complete flow from fault recognition, gather and diagnose information, repair and settle and schedule preventive maintenance. The whole show case was build on the Oracle PaaS Platform including IoT, Integration, Process and Mobile Cloud Service. In the upcoming months integration between cloud services will be much tighter including hybrid scenarios.

The unique Oracle value proposition are the availability of the same middleware products on-premises as services in the cloud. In case you missed it Oracle release key now on-premises versions including SOA Suite, BPM Suite and WebLogic. Key features include multi tenancy in WebLogic 12.2.1, JSON support in SOA Suite 12.2.1, Java Script in Service Bus or in memory SOA, to name some of the highlights. This new version make’s hybrid solutions much easier from deploying the same Java application on a private WebLogic instance or on Java Cloud Service to shifting workload of a running application. Or to start a process in the cloud and continue the same process in a private cloud.

At the same time we see the raise of the citizen developer. Business users with technical background will be able to build dashboards in Data Virtualization Cloud Service or applications by drag and drop including integrations. This cloud adapters can be deployed anywhere on-premises, private cloud or a public cloud. Citizen developers will shift their daily work from Outlook and Excel to cloud enabled applications. At the same time we will continue to see consulting companies to build enterprise applications, for the core competences of our joint customer base, with full blown functionality, big data & warehouses and enterprise wide integration platforms. In this hybrid cloud world security is key.

SOAMagazineCover5The SOA Magazine V edition focuses on Cloud Computing. More precisely, it highlights Platform as a Service (PaaS). Oracle is in process to launch three new PaaS Cloud Services: Process Cloud Service (PCS), Integration Cloud Service (ICS), and Java Cloud Service (JCS). JCS is the underlying foundation and enables you to build, deploy and run Java Applications. With ICS, partners and customers can build integrations between Applications. For example, an integration between Eloqua marketing and Salesforce CRM including an on-premises SAP system. PCS is the platform to build and execute BPMN process in the Cloud. Oracle’s key unique selling point is that the same software is available as on PaaS as on-premises. For example, you can start building your process in PCS export your application and run it on Oracle BPM Suite on-premises in a private Cloud. This enables customers to start and try a service in PaaS and, if required, move it to a data center of their choice.

 

The second major trend in IT besides Cloud Computing is Mobile. In this Magazine edition, Luca Jellema published an Tutorial to build a Flight application including mobile integration and application. This application is a great example for the complete Red Stack and we want to encourage your to make use of it! It includes all key components from the underlying WebLogic Server, SOA Suite and Service Bus for IT driven integration and BPM Suite for human based processes up to mobile integration with REST. With this application you will learn to utilize the stack and to gain productivity.

SOAMagazineCover4The SOA Magazine IV edition focuses on Industrial SOA articles which showcase that SOA is much more than a web service. Rolando Carrasco and Arturo Viveros showcase in their SOA Myth Busters article the evolution of the SOA Suite towards a complete platform over the last 10 years. An industrial SOA platform contains also API management to secure web services, as well b2b as a trading hub between external partners.

What is the use case for Business Process Management versus Services Oriented Architecture. SOA is mainly used for data mediation and process orchestration between different IT systems. BPM is focused on automation on human based processes like an employee holiday request. Key is to re-use the SOA web services for your BPM deployment. In our holiday request example we can re-use a web service from the HR system which informs the employee of the available holidays. In this magazine edition you learn on the BPM Side more about Gateways and how Link Consulting is using a generator to create Human tasks. Thanks to Mark Foster who highlights in his article 10 best practices for SOA Suite and BPM Suite a must read!
