Knowing Your Cloud From Your SaaS

I have recently spent far too much time in far too many conversations in which the terms "cloud" and "SaaS" are used interchangeably.  Let's be clear:  the two terms are not interchangeable as they describe very different concepts.

Cloud.  There are many definitions out there.  Marketers and sales people.  Engineers.  Industry analysts. The National Institute of Standard and Technology.  Frankly, most of those definitions are either wrong, or they're technically accurate while thoroughly useless. (more...)

What Is This COE Thing?

Since joining Oracle, I've heard this same question repeatedly:  "This Oracle HCM Cloud Center Of Excellence team you've joined...what do they do?"  So I thought I'd attempt to answer that question here in the hopes that people may get some benefit from it.

Be aware that you can search the web and find many definitions regarding a Center of Excellence is and what it does.  Forget that stuff, most of it does not (more...)

Glance Across Time

Seems like Queen Elizabeth I may have been they wearable tech pioneer of sorts, as alluded to by Chris  Horn (@chrisjhorn) in his Irish Times article, History of wearable devices links watches and Fitbit range. That this innovative device was a clock, or watch should come as no surprise. Timekeeping devices have been evolving for milenia, and the story of the wristwatch is fascinating.

Where better to explore glanceable UIs now the UX du jour (more...)

OOW15: Oracle Open World 2015

Just before Oracle Open World 2015, the launch of the new 12c (12.2.1) release went public. This release was a full release of the whole stack. From WebLogic Server to Business Intelligence, including product that were not on 12.1.3 yet, like WebCenter. A bit closer to Open World than expected, but this was good news, meaning we can talk freely about 12.2.1 and get all the information on it (more...)

OOW15: Coming soon, ABCService

One of the other cloud announcements that caught my eyes on Open World was ABCS, the Application Builder Cloud Service. A tool for the Line of Business user to create simple web and/or mobile application by drag and drop in the web browser. Simple add components out of a menu on the page, rearrange them and edit them the way you want in the WYSIWYG editor.


The tool either creates business objects from scratch in (more...)

OOW15: Announcing SoaCS

The Oracle SOA Cloud Service is online and you can check it out on the Oracle SoaCS Cloud page. This SoaCS offers you all the functionality the SOA Suite offers you on premise. In the cloud, Oracle has the same red stack strategy as they have on premise. This means the SoaCS runs on Oracle hardware and the Oracle database. This forces you to have a DbCS as well.

To get the SoaCS, you follow (more...)

OOW15: Cloud Bingo!

Even more than the previous years combined, this Open World was about the Cloud! The cloud is inevitable, so it seems. During my stay at Open World, I tried to find out more about the different cloud products, including their official acronyms.
To help my future self, but maybe some other people along the way, I created an overview of the clouds I met. This sure is not a full and completed list, but the (more...)

OOW15: Microsites with SCS on top of DCS

Most of us are familiar with or have at least heard of the concept of microservices, this year at Open World I also heard the term microsites more and more and I went on an investigation to find out more about the possibilities. I was surprised to find out I got more and more enthusiastic about this concept and the possibilities with the Oracle Cloud.
Microsites is a concept for a small temporary site. (more...)

Amazon S3 to Glacier – Cloud ILM

Falling in love with Kate Upton is easy but more easier is to be swept off your feet by information lifecycle management (ILM) in the Amazon Web Services (AWS). Simple, easily-configurable, fast, reliable, cost effective and proven are the words which describe it.

The Pen Is Mightier With UX

If you work in enterprise user experience (UX) it will come as no surprise that the humble pen and paper remains in widespread use for everyday business.

Sales reps, for example, are forever quickly scribbling down opportunity info. HR pros use them widely. Accountants? Check. At most meetings you will find both pen and paper and digital technology on the table.

That’s what UX is all about, understanding all the tools, technology, and job aids, (more...)
