SOA and Oracle Fusion Middleware for the Busy IT Professional by Frank Munz

Not everybody is starting up JDeveloper first thing in the morning in order to work with Oracle SOA Suite. Let’s face it: Instead of being an SOA expert, any given IT specialist is more likely a certified DB admin, a Java developer or somebody who was just told by his manager to take care of that Oracle Service Bus installation. In case you are one of them and looking into SOA and the related Oracle products this posting is written for you.

Technology and Oracle

The following two recipes provide firstly a no-nonsense explanation of Service Oriented Architecture (the first part is not related to Oracle at all !) and secondly an overview of Oracle’s Fusion Middleware (OFM) product stack.

ofm stack

The description is deliberately easy to read and I intentionally didn’t reuse any fancy marketing slides since they are often too generic and contain too many buzzwords. Read the full article here.

On the Fusion Applications user experience: More: New podcasts and posts on the Oracle user experience.

Here’s a round-up of recent podcasts and blog posts relating to the Oracle Applications User Experience that were published in February.

  • Jeremy Ashley, Vice President of Oracle Applications User Experience, talks about Oracle’s roadmap to a simple, modern user experience for Fusion Applications. Listen to learn more about the strategy behind Project FUSE. You may also access the podcast through the Usable Apps website.
  • Ultan O’Broin, Director of Oracle Global User Experience, talks in this podcast about why Oracle is making design patterns available for customers, partners, and the development community. These design patterns for the Oracle Fusion Applications user experience encapsulate proven best-practices and make them available for those who are extending or tailoring an Oracle application.
  • Richard Bingham, Oracle Applications Architect, discusses how to tailor Fusion Applications in the cloud.

On Oracle’s investment in the next-generation user experience (in this case, mobile): Intense research into mobile use helps guide design of Oracle Applications

Read about the mobile trends that the Oracle Applications User Experience team noted during a recent global expedition, which included user studies in Sweden, the United States, and Beijing.

The Oracle Applications User Experience team continues to investigate how and why enterprise workers use their mobile devices, and their findings are already influencing the next-generation user experiences that Oracle is designing.

Visit the Usable Apps website to learn more.
Also on Oracle’s investment in the next-generation user experience (a look at trends we’re following up on): A look at new concepts for the enterprise space
The Applications User Experience team is keeping its eye on new technologies that may have an impact on the enterprise space.

New concepts and technologies go through an internal research, design, and development process to assess which ones may or may not gain traction in the enterprise space.
Read more about how our findings help guide the Oracle user experience strategy on the Voice of User Experience, or VoX, blog.

Oracle Fusion UX Design Patterns and Tools for the Cloud Crowd by Ultan O’Broin

The Oracle Fusion Applications User Experience Design Patterns and Guidelines are out-of-the-box, developer productivity enablers. As ready-made, yet flexible, usability solutions, the patterns are easily applied when building Fusion applications and UI integrations in the cloud with the Oracle toolkit.

Design patterns as reusable solutions to common problems when designing are all around us. Keen to tell this story in new ways, I was inspired by an Engine Yard “Cloud Out Loud | Ruby“ podcast mention of knitting patterns on GitHub.

I assigned my partner a proof of concept project for one such knitting pattern in the cloud. The pattern was quickly applied, and reflecting pattern ideas of content and skin neutrality, I soon took delivery of “HCM” and “CRM”, two little knitted aliens. Concept proven!

Knitted aliens. Proving the design pattern concept.

Knitted aliens brought to life from a pattern in the cloud. I used this story at a SAMBA UX outreach workshop in Amsterdam earlier this month.

Our UX design patterns have been proven in usability labs, in offices, and on the street, with real users, real tasks, and real apps. We’ve done the thinking and testing so that builders of Fusion apps cloud solutions don’t have to. To get your hands on UX design patterns for use across the Fusion apps suite (not just HCM and CRM), go to the Usable Apps website “For Developers” section. Read the full article here.
