By Marta Bright Cloud computing offers the promise of increased speed, improved efficiencies, and reduced costs. Whether organizations are choosing public or private cloud models, a critical factor is the underlying cloud platform that supports their applications. A platform that is preintegrated and preconfigured by one supplier can be optimized for much higher levels of performance, scalability, availability, and manageability than a heterogeneous solution. Find out how Arcor SAIC and Phibro Animal Health are reaping the benefits of moving from on-premises manufacturing and supply chain applications to Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne On Demand, built on Oracle’s cloud platform.
By David A. Kelly Java is the most broadly deployed platform in the mobile and embedded arena, with literally billions of devices on the market, from mobile phones and TV set-top boxes to Blu-ray Disc players and printers. The smallest Java platform—Java Platform, Micro Edition (Java ME)—combines technologies and specifications designed to create a platform for mobile phones, consumer products, and embedded applications. With Java ME, organizations can create a complete Java runtime environment that’s designed to fit the needs of a specific device or market. See how CINTERION and Telmap are leveraging Java ME to create solutions that solve real-world problems.
