· The Best Way to Install Cloud-Based Applications What’s the best way to move to the cloud, Big Bang or slow and steady? The short answer: It depends on your company’s culture and sense of urgency. TCF Bank, for example, took a two-phase approach to cloud supply chain applications, because of all the change management required to make the shift. Meanwhile, a desire to speed up a transformation encouraged Adventist Health to take an all-at-once approach. Even Big Bang advocates advise caution.

· Smart Cities Improve Resident Experience, Monetize Digital Services In a recent Oracle research report, executives said they expect smart cities to be the top opportunity for 5G-enabled digital services. As cities worldwide deploy a range of digital services in their quest to become “smart,” they need to be able to offer flexible pricing models—and ultimately generate profitable revenues. What services could deploy these models?

· The Driverless Car: Closer Than You Think Depending on how much you like to drive—and on your definition of autonomous—the driverless car is either an imminent usurper or a long-term disruptor. Either way, it’s inevitable. All of the big automakers are investing in the technology, and macrotrends such as “transportation as a service” and “smart cities” already factor in autonomous vehicle technology. The last mile will disrupt more than the auto industry.

· When Seconds Count: A UK Police Department Transforms A police force needs to put officers with the right skills on the right assignments. Two years ago, it took the UK’s West Midlands Police about 11 hours to pull together up-to-date information on each officer’s work schedule, skills, medical restrictions, recent time off, and contact details. Today it can access that critical data in two minutes through an Oracle Service Cloud portal. Here’s more on why the force moved to the cloud

Oracle Blockchain Verifies Real Honey by Mary Hall

image

At the recent Oracle OpenWorld Dubai show, Oracle showed a demonstration of how natural Honey can be verified by blockchain.  You may wonder, well, why would anyone need Honey verified by blockchain? You may be surprised to learn that Honey is one of the most frequently impure or mislabeled foods. In recent years, Honey mixed with impure ingredients such as sugar, salt, corn syrup and even toxins has been found at grocery suppliers and retailers.

According to research by Food Safety News, as much as 76% of the Honey sold in grocery stores is fake. Some of it even contains toxins which can make people very ill. With the increase of fake Honey flooding the market, the importance of making the provenance and the origin of Honey transparent to consumers, via labeling powered by blockchain, can not be underestimated.  Putting Honey on the blockchain can literally save people lives by identifying potentially harmful ingredients.  In an article exploring the honey laundering industry, Wide Open Eats identifies that some fake Honey contains, Chloramphenicol, an antibiotic banned in the U.S. that has been linked to cancer and is dangerous to some people. Read the complete article here.

Oracle BlockChain Service: creating a smart contract aka how to write a chaincode by Lonneke Dikmans

image

In the first blog about blockchain, I used Oracle Compute Cloud Classic and installed MultiChain on it. Since then, Oracle has released a Blockchain Cloud Service with a lot of out of the box functionality, based on Hyperledger.
In this blog post I will describe how to create a smart contract for a webshop use case: getting offers from different suppliers for a specific order. I already know node.js so I will write the ChainCode in node. Note that go is also supported.

Prerequisites
  • A running instance of Oracle Blockchain Service
  • Node.js installed on your laptop

There are a number of steps involved in writing a smart contract (or chaincode).

  1. Design the chaincode
  2. Write a chaincode (in Node)
  3. Deploy a ChainCode to a Peer
  4. Test the chaincode with Postman
Design

Before you write a chaincode, you need to know what transactions need to be supported. In our example we have a webshop, that issues requests for shipping after ordering an item. Shippers can create an offer. If they are selected by the customer, they pickup the shipment. The customer receives the goods at the end of the cycle. For more information about designing the chaincode, see the hyperledger documentation. Read the complete article here

Arab Jordan Investment Bank in Production with Oracle Blockchain by Mary Hall

image

Arab Jordan Investment Bank (AJIB) is now in production with the Oracle Blockchain Platform.  The project is the largest blockchain deployment in the Middle East.   AJIB deployed Oracle Blockchain Platform to replace the banking application previously used for money transfers between AJIB entities, resulting in cost-savings and real-time cross-border transactions.

Results before and after using blockchain technology

Before using blockchain, money transfers between Arab Jordan Investment Bank (AJIB)  subsidiaries were achieved by using third-party intermediaries.  These intermediaries charged fees at each stage of a cross-border transfer transaction.   In addition to the additional fees, using theses intermediaries made it necessary for the bank to  share some customer information with third parties.  Sharing this type of information involved compliance with strict regulatory requirements. AJIB aimed at reducing the costs and the time required for cross-border payments, while making the entire process more secure and efficient.

With Oracle Blockchain, AJIB is now able to make the same transfers in real-time without paying the transactions fees for each transaction to third party intermediaries. Senders and receivers can now  track money transfers while the funds are in transit, providing transparency to both parties about the exact timing and amount of the transfer.

Oracle Integration has the best of breed RSO (Robotic Service Orchestration) support by Nicolas Damonte

image

But before justifying it, let’s start by explaining what RSO is and the differences with RPA.

The What …

RSO (Robotic Service Orchestration) is basically managing bots in the context of a business process, just like they would manage people.

RPA (Robotic Process Automation) enables the automation of manual tasks using UI Scrapping technologies. The value proposition is using bots to perform repetitive manual tasks (like data entry) mainly on legacy systems (with no APIs).

The Difference …

RPA was designed to performs tasks, not to manage end to end services.
RSO is about end to end services, managing their full orchestration and fostering a continuous improvement lifecycle.

The Justification …
