Many organizations run enterprise Oracle Forms applications created in the 90s. They now wonder about the future of their application. This session tells how modernization of the application landscape could take place. The main approaches going forward to be discussed are: modernize the Forms themselves with Forms 11g and 12c, integrate the Forms with Web 2.0 and SOA components, embed the Forms in modern Web 2.0 applications, render the Forms to new devices, wrap the Forms as service and build new multi-channel User Interfaces on top of them and finally migrate or rebuild the functionality on a new technology platform. We will explore the options, discuss the merits, demonstrate the consequences and learn from actual experiences.
