An Introduction to Oracle Stream Analytics by Robin Moffatt

image

Oracle Stream Analytics (OSA) is a graphical tool that provides “Business Insight into Fast Data”. In layman terms, that translates into an intuitive web-based interface for exploring, analysing, and manipulating streaming data sources in realtime. These sources can include REST, JMS queues, as well as Kafka. The inclusion of Kafka opens OSA up to integration with many new-build data pipelines that use this as a backbone technology.

Previously known as Oracle Stream Explorer, it is part of the SOA component of Fusion Middleware (just as OBIEE and ODI are part of FMW too). In a recent blog it was positioned as “[…] part of Oracle Data Integration And Governance Platform.”. Its Big Data credentials include support for Kafka as source and target, as well as the option to execute across multiple nodes for scaling performance and capacity using Spark.

I’ve been exploring OSA from the comfort of my own Mac, courtesy of Docker and a Docker image for OSA created by Guido Schmutz. The benefits of Docker are many and covered elsewhere, but what I loved about it in this instance was that I didn’t have to download a VM that was 10s of GB. Nor did I have to spend time learning how to install OSA from scratch, which whilst interesting wasn’t a priority compared to just trying to tool out and seeing what it could do. [Update] it turns out that installation is a piece of cake, and the download is less than 1Gb … but in general the principle still stands – Docker is a great way to get up and running quickly with something

In this article we’ll take OSA for a spin, looking at some of the functionality and terminology, and then real examples of use with live Twitter data.

How to Switch Off the Universal Global Header for PaaS Pages: UX RDK Enhancement by Ultan O’Broin

image

Listen up Oracle Cloud UX Rapid Development Kit (RDK) and PaaS4SaaS fans!

Available now, the Cloud UX RDK offers a headless mode switch for the AppsCloudUIKit Oracle ADF page templates. The mode turns off the Unified Global Header you’ll be familiar with from SaaS.

The headless mode is invoked by passing the headless=yes parameter in the endpoint URL for application. For example:

This is a reusable solution for cases where pages are embedded inside SaaS and make call outs to PaaS, so it’s ideal for your custom simplified UI solutions. Read the complete article here.

PaaS Services Explained: The Most Common SaaS Use Cases by Richard Bingham

image

 
Introduction

This article summarizes our selection of the Oracle Cloud Platform Services (PaaS) with specific focus on use with an existing Oracle Cloud Applications (SaaS) environment. In other content the term PaaS4SaaS has been used for this context.

This is the first of a series of articles in which we will use examples to demonstrate some of the key functions and features inside the Oracle PaaS services, and indeed many will be derived from real implementations. Again the focus is on getting value for use with an existing Oracle Fusion Cloud (SaaS) environment, as opposed to a general feature overview.

Clearly all services evolve of time, and as such the information provided is accurate at the time of writing, and where possible links to updated content will be provided.

Use-Cases

In order to organize this series of articles, and at the same time portray the most-common use of each of the services, we’ve selected the following four broad categories within which to place each of the PaaS service offerings.

  • Build custom extension applications
  • Host your existing extension applications
  • Integrate your existing custom and packaged applications
  • Enhance your solution by adding ready-to-go features.

Obviously there may be some overlap between categories with some services. The following table shows how the PaaS Services which are mostly likely to complement a SaaS environment fit into the categories above. Read the complete article here.

NEW ERP POST ON FORBES.COM

image

Enterprise resource planning applications are highly complex systems. But the navigation and overall user experience should be as simple as possible. Oracle Thought Leader Jeremy Ashley, the Oracle Applications User Experience (OAUX) Group Vice President, writes about the Oracle ERP Cloud in Oracle​Voice: ERP UX Must Be Simple, Even When The Data Is Complex.

BEHIND THE ‘WOW’ OF THE SMART OFFICE: Noel Portugal, from the AppsLab, the OAUX emerging technologies team, writes about what you can see if you catch the Smart Office demo right now in “The Future of Work: What does a Smart Office look like today?” For a look at the emerging technology research behind all of the cool things you can see, visit the UsableApps Storify page for a new post, “Building a "smart office" with today’s emerging technology.”

AUGMENTING REALITY: Oh wait, there’s more news from the emerging technology team! In a new post on the Voice of User Experience, or VoX, blog, “Teaching old(er) emerging-tech dogs new tricks” we talk about augmented reality and visualizations. And context. And, of course, user experience.

CLOUD UX RAPID DEVELOPMENT KIT (RDK): Developer Timo Hahn’s JDev and ADF Goodies blog posts about using the OAUX team’s Cloud UX RDK with Oracle Development Cloud Service for continuous integration. This is a four-part (!) blog series based on the DOAG DevCamp 2016 session on how to use the service, says Oracle’s Ultan O’Broin.
