Under the Hood
by Alan Joch, November 2010
Technologists looking under the hood of Oracle Fusion Applications will find six technical components that combine to create these next-generation applications:
Open standards. Java, BPEL, and other industry protocols build on Oracle’s existing strategy for lowering IT costs and risks.
SOA. Oracle Fusion Applications’ use of Web services and industry-standard frameworks ease customizations and integration among Oracle Fusion Applications, other Oracle applications, and third-party programs.
Embedded business intelligence. Business intelligence underpins each screen in Oracle Fusion Applications, rather than being a separate specialized tool for business users.
Enterprise 2.0. Oracle Fusion Applications adapt familiar collaboration and social networking resources for business environments.
Role-based user experiences. Extensive usability testing with users from around the world gives Oracle Fusion Applications an intuitive and productive user experience.
Software-as-a-service-ready. Oracle Fusion Applications can be deployed on premises, in a public or private cloud, or in a combination of the above.
