· Three Advances Finally Making Software Self-Healing and Self-Managing Advance #1: As developers write and deploy code on a cloud platform, the platform automatically generates and delivers relevant activity and environment insights, without a separate effort. The next advances.

· Machine Learning: The New Must-Have for IT Security Using the vast amount of data it has accumulated through monitoring and securing technology in on-premises and cloud IT environments, Oracle has created purpose-built management and security services in Oracle Cloud. So as the algorithms learn and improve, the benefits immediately become available to every customer.

· Blockchain’s Promise and Potential for Fintech The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT), a global cooperative that provides secure financial messaging services, is working on a blockchain-based global payment initiative for global financial transfers. The platform’s blockchain technology provides instant international bank transfers and automatic compliance. Other benefits.

· Strengthening Support for Start-Ups A year ago, Oracle announced a global expansion of its Startup Cloud Accelerator program, and it has recruited five to six startups in each new location. “One of the things I think we got right was varying and adapting the program based on its location, and you’ll see us continue with that strategy,” says Reggie Bradford, Oracle’s senior vice president of Startup Ecosystem and Accelerator. What’s next for the program?

· Tech Trends That Made a Difference in 2017 The idea of shifting workloads en masse to the cloud has become mainstream. “For the first time, in 2017, I worked on projects where large, multinational companies give up their own data center and move 100% to the cloud,” says Frank Munz, of Munz & More. What other trends did technologists spot?

· City of San Jose Launches Smart City App “We’re looking to make San Jose the most innovative city in the world,” says CIO Rob Lloyd. Thanks to the My San Jose application, powered by Oracle Cloud, citizens are now better connected with their government. How it works.

User Experience Roadmap for the Oracle Applications Cloud

image

NEW STRATEGY EBOOK: The Oracle Applications User Experience (OAUX) team has published an updated cloud UX strategy ebook. In this ebook, you’ll find information about what guides the design of Oracle’s cloud UX as we continue to evolve. We write about the things we are focused on, all based on our research with Oracle’s applications users, and offer you a glimpse at the roadmap and where we’re planning to invest time and resources. You can download a copy at http://www.tinyurl.com/UXstrategy.

TAILORING YOUR USER EXPERIENCE: Perhaps you’ve already seen our recent post on Oracle platinum partner Boxfusion Consulting, which worked with members of the OAUX team to build a custom solution – based on Oracle user experience design patterns – for a customer. Boxfusion has written more about the project and offers screenshots of what they built.

FOR PARTNERS: Two new webcasts on Release 13’s visual evolution tools are now available. Customer Connect (you must be a member) has published “Oracle Applications Cloud Release 13’s Visual Evolution Tools Deliver Modern User Experience,” which highlights the expanded branding and theming controls and framework improvements that provide increased flexibility to define a customer’s own branding on the screen and reflect corporate culture and organizational needs.

HCM Talk Radio has also released an audio webcast, “Release 13 User Experience and what new visual functionality may be coming in the future.” Both webcasts are presented by OAUX team member Katy Massucco.

TIMELINE FOR VIRTUAL REALITY: Are you wondering how virtual reality (VR) might be integrated into your company’s software? Tawny Le, a member of the OAUX Emerging Technologies team, or The AppsLab, writes about her research into VR and where it will fit in enterprise systems. Her answer may surprise you.

Creating an HCM Cloud Extension with Visual Builder Cloud Service and Process Cloud Service

image

In this video we create an application for managing parking spot requests. The application pulls in information about employees and locations from the Oracle HCM Cloud REST API, then expands it with custom VBCS objects for parking spots and parking spot requests. A PCS process manages the approval process for the application. Read the complete article here.

Beyond Bitcoin: Oracle Prepare Blockchains for Industrial Use by TC Currie

image

There’s been a lot of talk recently about blockchains beyond its original use for supporting Bitcoin. Earlier this year, we covered a session in London where the takeaway from the panel was there are too many problems to be solved. But that was in February, and a lot has changed since then.

Judging from some of the blockchain sessions at the recent Oracle OpenWorld conference, the emerging potential uses for blockchain are kind of staggering.

Blockchain uses a technology also described as a “distributed ledger.” That’s an obvious fit for finance, which is all about ledgers, but it turns out the distributed ledger concept can be applied to — well, to almost everything.

According to BlackBook Research, 70 percent of health insurance payers are planning to have blockchain integrated into their systems by the beginning of 2019. That’s 15 months from now. Among the payers with over 500,000 members, that number climbs to 98 percent, with 14 percent currently testing blockchain systems. Read the complete article here.

7 Things Every Developer Should Know About Oracle Blockchain Cloud Service by Jay Chugh

image

At Oracle Open World, Oracle launched the new and exciting enterprise-grade Oracle Blockchain Cloud Service. The launch generated overwhelming interest from press, analysts, and conference attendees as evident by standing-room only attendance in nearly all Blockchain sessions.

What was equally noteworthy was the tremendous interest from software developers.  The demos and hands-on labs showcased just how easy it is for any developer to work with Oracle Blockchain Cloud Service, unlike anything they have seen in the market so far. Oracle’s Blockchain Cloud Service enables developers to build smart contracts, integrate with existing business processes, or even create new blockchain applications within minutes, without worrying about running and managing Blockchain environments.

Based on conversations with developers that are breaking new ground in Blockchain, here is a compilation of top seven things every developer should know about Oracle’s Blockchain Cloud Service.

  1. Open Source and Open Standards Based

Oracle’s blockchain is based on open source Hyperledger Fabric v1.0 code, which supports standard protocols such as REST and gRPC. For developers, it means that they have complete visibility into the product roadmap and may directly participate in development through open source community. This also means that developers can easily integrate their existing Hyperledger-based blockchain networks and applications with Oracle Blockchain Cloud Service.

  1. Simpler to Develop and Deploy Smart Contracts. Read the complete article here.

NIST Releases Blockchain Report for Business Beginners by Annaliese Milano

image

The National Institute of Standards and Technology – a non-regulatory agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce – has released an overview of blockchain technology, aimed to clarify the central characteristics of the technology, its limitations and common misconceptions.

The document targets beginners to blockchain, specifically organizations considering adopting the technology, and those trying to move beyond the "hype" surrounding blockchain. The authors remind readers that businesses are often tempted by new technology, but that they should be sure that the blockchain is appropriate for their operations before diving in.

"A company’s IT managers need to be able to say, we understand this, and then be able to argue whether or not the company needs to use it based on that clear understanding", said Dylan Yaga, computer scientist and one author of the report. Read the complete article here.

Jarvis Pizzeria: Third step in Implementing the Order Processing, Correlation

image

In our blog entries the First Step and the Second Step there was described how multiple pizza’s could be prepared using a multi-instance subprocess. Although we saw this working correctly, the subprocess was configured to prepare pizzas sequentially, see the screenshot below:

However, due to the success of the Jarvis Pizzeria, new equipment was purchased. Two brand new ovens were installed, enabling the Jarvis enterprise to prepare three pizza’s simultaneously…awesome!

To make optimal use of our equipment we should configure the process to prepare pizzas in parallel, see the screenshot below:

Those of you who have worked with multiple asynchronous calls from the same process (or even BPEL, back in the days) should remember the need for correlating the invocation with the corresponding callback.

Lets first try this with setting up message based correlation. I.e. from the calling process we initiate a correlation with a unique key which is send to the called process. The called process returns this unique key and hence the calling process knows on which callback it has to wait.

In the properties of the “Start of Preparation” activity we have the option to initialize the correlation: Read the complete article here.
