Wrap Up from Oracle OpenWorld

TIA was pleased to attend Oracle OpenWorld earlier this month in San Francisco.

TIA was pleased to attend Oracle OpenWorld earlier this month in San Francisco.

Among the many interesting sessions and topics presented at the conference the most important and relevant ones for TIA were the Oracle Cloud announcements, presentations on Oracle BPM and Oracle Fusion Applications, as well as on ADF Mobile. All of which are areas of great relevance to TIA’s current and future plans for the TIA Solution.

Below you can find a brief overview of some of these sessions.

Oracle Cloud Services for database and integrated Java development looks promising and directly targets the ability of the TIA platform to move out of traditional data center hosting and leveraging on more agile cloud setups. TIA closely follows the progress of Oracle cloud technologies, and a first step for TIA is to start using the technologies for internal development and testing. In the long term the Oracle commitment could lead to cloud offerings of natural benefit to TIA customers through a cloud-based TIA Solution.

Oracle held some very insightful sessions on its Fusion Applicationsarchitecture and on how they were developing state-of-the-art business applications for CRM and HCM. The Fusion Applications architecture leveragesOracle ADF and puts into play many features of the Oracle BPM Suite. As TIA will be introducing the BPM Paradigm in its next release cycle (the 8-track) it was interesting to observe how Oracle manages large implementation projects based on the very same platform and using the same tools as TIA. In version 8 TIA will offer even more business process awareness with increased flexibility, configurability and measurability.

ADF Mobile was in beta phase at Oracle Open World and was officially released to the marked last week. ADF Mobile will allow TIA and TIA customers to reuse TIA ADF and earned ADF skills when developing mobile applications on top of TIA. ADF Mobile combines ease of ADF web development with the power of native applications leveraging on-device features like cameras and phone features, and delivers cross-device native user experience. TIA is at present evaluating the ADF Mobile framework as the possible future mobile platform.

After a busy 5 days of hearing lots of presentations and meeting great people and having interesting discussions, TIA came away from the conference even more certain that Oracle is the best platform to base the TIA Solution on. We look forward to what’s on offer at the next Oracle OpenWorld.
