Oracle Fusion Architecture: Soup to Nuts - It'll Rock!

This Sunday, as a kind of kick-off for Collaborate 10, Oracle and several of the Oracle user groups are “collaborating at Collaborate” to put on a free seminar: “Oracle Fusion Architecture: Soup to Nuts”. We’ll be exploring highlights of the entire Fusion Architecture stack, starting with the database and working our way up to Fus…uh, I mean “Next Generation”…Applications. And it’s going to rock!

We’ll start up the seminar at 10 a.m. with a quick welcome. Then we’ll start with the database (because everything starts with the database) as ODTUG’s John.King launches into a presentation of “Oracle 11g for Developers: What You Need to Know”. John will serve double-duty, taking a look at development tools and ADF at 11. At noon we'll break an hour for lunch.

After lunch, OAUG’s Ron Batra will take us through an overview of the Applications Integration Architecture (AIA). Then Oracle’s Margaret Lee and Nishit Rao will provide some insight into Fusion Principles.

After the Fusion Principles presentation, we’ve lined up something a bit unique: some customers will be talking openly and honestly about their experiences in using Fusion Middleware with their Applications Unlimited products. HEUG and Quest will be sponsoring this discussion. I’ve previewed the presentations…learned a few things myself. I’m especially looking forward to seeing the reaction of a customer story involving Fusion Middleware and JDE World. We’ve allotted 3 to 3:45 for these customer stories.

Once the customer stories wrap up, we’ll move on with a presentation from Oracle’s Usability Labs. Jeremy Ashley and Katie Candland will walk us through the concepts behind Oracle’s user experience work. This is a story that extends well beyond Fusion Architecture, but at the very core of the yet-to-be-released applications.

Next Debra Lilley, Basheer Kahn and I will present a 30-minute encore of our Unconference Session from Oracle OpenWorld 09: “Why We Can’t Wait For Fusion Applications”.

We’ll wrap up with a 30 minute Q&A session from 5:15 to 5:45, with a panel of experts from the user groups taking questions from the audience.

It’s a long day. But, like I said, it’s going to rock! Mandalay Bay Ballroom D, Level II; Sunday from 10 to 6. Hope to see ya’all there.

At COLLABORATE, Sunday has never been so exciting before! I had to change my travel plans to arrive on Saturday evening to catch every minute relishing the soup and nuts being served on Sunday.
