Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Launch - Denver

Denver - August 25, 2009

The Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Launch was an excellent event. Along with the launch event, I was impressed with all of the Oracle Fusion Middleware expertise in Denver. There were a number of former BEA experts now helping lead the charge with Oracle Fusion as well as some of the top middleware talent in the world can be found locally in Denver. 

The networking at the breakfast (thanks Oracle for some fantastic food) and during lunch was as beneficial as the presentations. I attended four excellent presentations:
  • Keynote: Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g
  • Oracle SOA Suite 11g: Enabling the Foundation for Next Generation Business Applications
  • Oracle Fusion Middleware and Cloud Computing
  • Best Practices for Designing Your Data Warehouse - The Complete Story
Although the keynote contained a lot of marketing information, there was some excellent points raised during the presentation. This presentation highlighted key features in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11gR1 release. The new features are very impressive. You can hardly recognize the Oracle 10g and 11g releases of Oracle Fusion Middleware. Three areas that really stood out for me include:
  • All the features/functionality, bells and whistles in the new release.
  • How complete all the functionality is within the JDeveloper IDE.
  • The level of integration.
Key components in Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g:
  • JDeveloper and ADF
  • SOA Suite 11g
  • WebCenter 11g
  • WebLogic Suite 11g
  • Identity Management 11g
I really thought Ashish Mohindroo did an excellent job of showing how Oracle Fusion Middleware fits into cloud computing. This is an excellent discussion on Cloud Computing fundamentals and how Oracle Fusion Middleware plays a key role in the cloud environment.

Kudos for an outstanding launch event.
