CON8669 - Using the Right Tools, Techniques, and Technologies for Integration Projects Every integration project brings its own unique set of challenges. There are many tools and techniques to choose from. How do you ensure that you have a means of consistently and repeatedly making decisions about which tools, techniques, and technologies are used? In working with many customers around the globe, Oracle has developed a set of criteria to help evaluate a variety of common integration questions. This session explores these criteria and how they have been further organized into decision trees that offer a repeatable means for ensuring that project teams are given the same guidance from project to project. Using these techniques, the presentation shows how you can reduce risk and speed productivity for your projects.

CON8632: Extreme Performance and Scale Delivered by SOA on Oracle Exalogic Demands to incorporate internet-scale applications, data, and social media traffic with existing IT infrastructure require extreme availability, reliability, and scalability. In this session on industrial-strength SOA, the audience learned how Oracle Exalogic and Oracle Exadata engineered systems address these requirements. They heard (1) how SOA and BPM benefit from “hardware and software engineered for each other,” (2) how Oracle Exadata provides the data tier with unparalleled scalability and performance for SOA and BPM running on Oracle Exalogic, (3) customer case studies, (4) best practices and topology guidelines, (5) information on tools that help operate, manage, provision, and deploy—to help reduce overall TCO. Extreme engineering at its best!
CON8968: How to Integrate Cloud Applications with Oracle SOA Suite There is a new integration need specific to applications offered as cloud services. Customers need to integrate with this new breed of applications. Compared to integrating with on-premises applications, existing paradigms to ensure reliability, performance, and security need to be revisited. This session highlighted how best to integrate with Oracle’s portfolio of cloud applications—including Oracle Fusion Customer Relationship Management, Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management, and Oracle’s Taleo and RightNow product lines—and discusses how Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Data Integration provide all the integration capabilities for cloud applications and on-premises applications. In the session, customers shared their real-life application integration experiences.
CON9619: Transforming the Utilities Industry with Oracle Fusion Middleware The utilities industry is undergoing a massive transformation driven by the adoption of smart grids and smart meters. These technologies are creating demand for sophisticated business process management capabilities, real-time messaging, and events-based infrastructure. Unlike never before, utilities companies are now grappling with what to do with all of this information while better engaging with their customers. This session covered best practices for developing real value for smart grid and smart meter solutions with Oracle Fusion Middleware products, specifically Oracle Business Process Management, Oracle Event Processing, Oracle WebCenter, and Oracle Data Integration solutions.
CON8642: Cloud and On-Premises Applications Integration, Using Oracle Integration Adapters Oracle integration adapters in Oracle Fusion Middleware offer organizations a service-oriented approach to unlocking the information assets that have evolved in most IT environments. This session provided a detailed overview of their features and product architecture and an update on the 11g release. It also examined the changing application and technology landscape and how the integration adapters will continue to provide connectivity and harness information from diverse enterprise applications and technologies—both on-premises and in the cloud.
CON5003: Delivering High Value B2B Gateways with Oracle SOA Suite 11g This session discussed the key architectural, technical, operational, and logistical challenges and benefits realized by customers who are delivering high-availability (HA) B2B gateways using Release 11g of Oracle B2B products. As a prime example, Stryker's legacy B2B network spanned 45 electronic data interchange (EDI) sites, supported by a complex network of different platforms and connections. In 2011 Stryker began its multiyear journey to transform this environment into a centralized, global B2B network that would dramatically simplify and increase efficiency for its B2B operations. This session presented details about the solution design, which uses many interesting features of Oracle B2B solutions and Oracle SOA Suite.
CON8546: Implementing Successful Healthcare Applications with Oracle SOA Suite In this session, the audience heard from Ascension Health, which has chosen Oracle SOA Suite as its next-generation healthcare integration platform. The session covered how other customers are using Oracle SOA Suite to solve their healthcare integration needs and achieve Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) meaningful use. The presentation captured some of the best practices and lessons learned from these implementations and focuses on the underlying technologies that make all this happen. It also provided a quick overview of the product and an update on recent milestones and covers the roadmap briefly.
CON5744: Migrating to Oracle SOA Suite: A Sun Java CAPS Customer Experience Griffin’s is New Zealand’s largest branded food manufacturer, and Centerpoint Energy is the third-largest utility in the U.S. Both are loyal Java CAPS customers that decided to migrate to Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle’s strategic integration platform, because it provided high interoperability and the promise of greater flexibility to reduce risk and implementation time. This presentation focused on the two success stories of their migration from Java CAPS to Oracle SOA Suite. It discussed the approaches taken by Griffins and Centerpoint, with their lessons learned. The goal of this session was for the attendees to understand Oracle’s Java CAPS migration methodology.
CON8607: If Mobile Enablement Is on Your Mind, Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Service Bus Can Help Multichannel enablement (and, more specifically, mobile enablement) of existing enterprise systems is a fast-growing trend. Users expect to be able to access from their phone the same systems and processes they have access to from their desktops. What infrastructure needs to be deployed to make that a reality? Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Service Bus are key parts of the equation. They can expose legacy systems over newer protocols such as REST and can handle security mediation. This session discussed requirements, features, and use cases.
CON8319: Building Shared Services Infrastructure with Oracle Service Bus: Customer Panel In this session the audience learned how enterprise customers are successfully building, scaling, and managing shared-services infrastructures with Oracle Service Bus as a key component. In the presentation, enterprise architects discussed best practices to illustrate how they have implemented shared services to help their business become more agile. Shared services are recognized as a prerequisite for effective cloud and mobile strategies.
