UX of the Oracle Applications Cloud Release 13

image

Are you curious about what you’ll find in Release 13 of the Oracle Applications Cloud? This release leverages the flexibility of the cloud to give customers more control of the cloud’s user interface (UI). The key UX highlights include:

New ‘lobby’ experience: The cloud’s home page has gotten a makeover in R13. The new “lobby experience” of the home page is how users launch the cloud. Customers have two contemporary home page layouts to choose from: banner view and panel view. The new banner view (above, left) stripes the same social panel horizontally across the top of the home page. Panel view (right) sets the social panel vertically on the left.

Robust branding capabilities: R13 represents a big investment from Oracle in providing a way for customers to very simply reflect a company’s brand and culture, and to keep it up to date. We’ve built up branding and theming controls introduced in previous releases, such as the enhanced Appearance Editor, allowing customers to easily mold the cloud to best fit their unique corporate cultures.

To learn more about the UX highlights of R13: 

• Read this post on the OAUX Blog: One size does not fit all: Flexibility fuels visual evolution of Oracle Cloud’s Release 13

• Watch this webinar on Cloud Customer Connect (must have an account to access): Oracle Applications Cloud Visual Evolution Release 13

• Explore UX highlights by release on the OAUX Blog

Oracle IoT Cloud Apps Rollout in Mexico City by Albert Chiang

image 

After the official launch of Oracle IoT Cloud Apps at Modern Supply Chain Conference 2017, we received a stream of requests for information – from potential customers, system integrators, and device makers. Many of them did not know Oracle offered an IoT solution. And most of them did not know that Oracle offered IoT originally as a PaaS – and also now as a SaaS.  This intrigued them.

Mexico and Its Shift to High End Assembly & Manufacturing

So perhaps it wasn’t surprising that the Oracle IoT rollout in Mexico City was a standing room only event. IoT has gained the interest of manufacturers (sometimes also called Industry 4.0) to be able to track manufacturing output, monitor the status of machines in manufacturing, and predicatively call for maintenance.   With Mexico’s strong manufacturing base,  the country has become the third largest source of imports into the U.S., with a total 2-way trade of $579 billion. And that number should change as BMW gears up to produce its popular 3-series car in Mexico by 2019. Read the complete article here.

Let Us Take You into the Future

Artificial intelligence, autonomous databases, blockchain, chatbots, Internet of Things, and more: Oracle executives discuss emerging technologies. By Michael Hickins

Those of us who have been waiting for the future to arrive since, well, forever can finally rejoice. The future has arrived in the form of computer interfaces that feel human; self-learning software; self-healing autonomous databases; sensors that provide us with actionable, critical data from far afield; hyper-realistic visualization technology; and transaction systems that are simultaneously private and transparent.

What’s most surprising, though, is that the experience of the future is incredibly easy for Oracle’s customers to deploy. At this year’s Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco, California, Oracle leaders announced new products and discussed upcoming capabilities that put the power of several emerging technologies into the hands of Oracle customers.

Enterprise-Class Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the most fundamentally important and pervasive of emerging technologies. Larry Ellison, executive chairman and CTO at Oracle, calls machine learning, a subset of artificial intelligence, “every bit as revolutionary as the internet.”

Oracle is using AI, for instance, to power its autonomous database and chatbots (more on those to follow), and to turn the trillions of data points streaming from connected devices into actionable information.

“For years and years and years, artificial intelligence did not live up to its promise,” Ellison said during his opening keynote address at Oracle OpenWorld on October 1, “but there is a new type of AI.” Read the complete article here.

2nd vs 3rd Generation API Platforms – A Comprehensive Comparison by Luis Augusto Weir

image 

Earlier in the year, June to be exact, I published the OTN article 3rd-Generation API Management: From Proxies to Micro-Gateways -based on a concept I presented in an Oracle OpenWorld 2016 Presentation titled API management in the year 2026.
In summary, the article talks about how in the digital era requirements have changed when it comes to getting access to information. Fact that modern applications demand information in real time and expect it to be available 24×7, and also the side effect of cloud adoption which is causing information to become more and more federated amongst multiple cloud applications (from different vendors) and on-premises systems -as they won’t go away that easily.
The article continues by explaining that although REST APIs play a critical role in providing such critical access, the underlaying technology stack that have traditionally enabled SOA architectures, typically based on monolithic middleware, will struggle to satisfy the aforementioned needs. The article concludes by explaining that a new form of platform, one that is light-weight, portable, hybrid and cloud-agnostic, REST/JSON native, Microservices Architecture ready, a 3rd generation, is ultimately required.
You might recognised the following picture from some tweets and articles: Read the complete article here.

Five Reasons Why You Should Choose Oracle’s PaaS by Jay Chugh

image

The Power of Oracle PaaS

From cloud computing discussions, you know that Platform is THE underlying force that turns bright enterprise ideas and prototypes into fully functional applications. It’s the platform that decodes all layers of complexity to rapidly build a new application or cost-effectively modernize an existing application.

The platform offers front-end tooling with various frameworks and languages to tee-up the application logic. It ties in data services such as relational databases, NoSQL databases, Big data platforms such as Hadoop and Spark to manage large volumes of data, and ensures integration with other applications and systems through open source and proprietary tools and technologies. The platform also makes the app ‘intelligent’ by building analytics driven by AI and ML. When the entire power of the platform is offered as a fully-managed and cohesive set of cloud services, it becomes Platform as a Service (PaaS).

Mindshift to a DevOps Culture

There’s a fundamental mind shift happening in enterprise IT today. Development and IT have traditionally had distinct charters; Development focused on building and deploying the application while operations was mainly concerned about standardization, security, and performance.

But with digital transformation as the mega movement, there was a need to change how applications were built and deployed. Enterprises cared about faster time-to-market, developers cared about faster release cycles by automating the build-deploy-operate process with CI/CD, and IT operations cared about standardization and performance.

All of this converged with the DevOps tool ecosystem, and a new DevOps culture and organizational design inside the enterprise. Consequently, businesses such as Instacart, Lyft, and others are taking on a DevOps and microservices approach by building and releasing features rapidly while keeping operational constraints in mind. But now the platform has to be flexible enough to support the needs of the new DevOps organization.

Oracle PaaS – Designed for the Modern DevOps Enterprise

You’ve heard about Oracle’s SaaS and database offerings. We even announced the world’s first self-driving database at the Oracle OpenWorld 2017. But the underlying ‘force’ that enables you to extract even greater value from your SaaS and on-premises applications is Oracle’s Platform as a Service (PaaS). It is a highly differentiated platform that enables enterprises to accelerate innovation for all applications and IT needs. The Oracle Cloud Platform (PaaS) is a comprehensive, standards-based, fully integrated combination of Oracle and other open source technologies to build, deploy, migrate and manage a variety of different application workloads in the cloud at a significantly lower operational cost.

And, we’re going to offer five reasons why you should choose Oracle PaaS for your Application Development needs. Read the complete article here.
