  • For over a decade, Oracle has been a leading developer of enterprise software for various Microsoft technologies. Initially this work had focused primarily on windows, first as a desktop client, and later as a server platform. Today, the breadth of technology stacks of both companies has grown considerably and interoperability between the two environments now includes information and document interchange, expanded support of Microsoft Office applications, security and identity management, web service development and integration and more.   This presentation looks at the current state of the products and technologies that Oracle has created to provide world class software solutions for Oracle/Microsoft customers.
  • Certify OFM with 120+ third-party and partner products: Examples include Content Management; Application Servers; System Management; Identity Management Products; Java Messaging Providers; Firewalls; Hardware Load Balancers; SSL Accelerators; etc. etc. On Diagram above are some specific examples - -this is not an exhaustive list
  • This is a high level overview of how Oracle Fusion Middleware interoperates with Microsoft technologies.
  • Key Points: This slide is also just meant to show many points of interoperability among MSFT infrastructure and applications and Oracle Fusion Middleware. No need to go through every point but mention a few. We will also walk through in more detail later. Oracle Fusion Middleware is optimized for Windows. Oracle brings to Windows environments the ability to scale computing infrastructure beyond the capability of the largest SMP machine through enabling Windows grids with middleware clusters Broad product integration with Microsoft at the middleware level Oracle Identity Management solution works seamless with MSFT ActiveDirectory, MSFT Identity Integration Server Oracle Identity Management solution provides MSFT Sharepoint with heterogeneous SSO Oracle Web Services Manager secures and manages both J2EE and .NET web services Oracle Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) Manager interoperates with MSFT MQ, MSFT BizTalk server Oracle Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) can monitor real-time business events in MSFT MQ and send alerts to MSFT Outlook Oracle Portal can leverage portlets deployed on MSFT IIS/.NET servers, expose Office applications, and many other web applications developed with MSFT technologies Oracle Portal can leverage MSFT Active Directory for user information Office interoperability Oracle Collaboration Suite has a tight integration with MSFT Windows and Office (Oracle Connector for Outlook) Oracle Content Services works seamlessly as a file server for Windows (e.g., Oracle Drive) Oracle BI Spreadsheet Add-in embeds OLAP capabilities directly in Excel for reporting, ad-hoc analysis, modeling Oracle XML Publisher can take data from MSFT SQL Server, data from Excel, Word, render output formats into Office forms and send the data back to MSFT SQL Server or any other data sources Oracle E-Business Suite has over 150+ integration points with Office for data entry and report distribution in applications such as Financial Consolidation Hub, HR, Incentive Management, Asset Manager, Internal Controls Manager, Projects, Advanced Product Catalog, and more.
  • Key points for this section: Windows is one of the primary platform for Oracle Fusion Middleware Web-tier interoperability to improve scalability, performance of web sites Reuse and leverage Microsoft and Oracle administration skills
  • Key points: Our initial releases will always be on Windows – it’s a primary platform for Oracle Fusion Middleware. Concurrent testing and delivery on MSFT Windows Several Windows-specific optimizations Recent survey of Oracle Fusion Middleware customers indicate that over 33% of the customers are running OFM on Windows.
  • Basic runtime integration with Windows Platform
  • The following two slides illustrate how web tier interoperates between Microsoft and Java web servers.
  • Key points: This slide is the ability to use Oracle Web Cache in a Microsoft environment to increase performance of your websites.
  • Key points: Ensure 24x7x365 availability for critical business systems Leverage MSFT skills to manage IT infrastructure Reduce burden on IT
  • This is a use case for a web SSO using Oracle Portal and Identity Management using Windows native authentication. Oracle Identity Management works very well to extend Active Directory to provide a heterogeneous SSO solution.
  • This is the desktop screenshot of Oracle Content Services. As you can see, you can access Oracle Content Services functionality directly from Windows Explorer. You can use all the windows commands to access, modify, share and store your documents from your desktop client. Oracle Content Services can be used as a mapped networked drive (another letter drive from Windows Explorer) or a as a web folder. One example on how an organization can use Oracle Content Services as a secure content management repository for MSFT Sharepoint in a interoperability scenario: Organization has already implement MSFT Sharepoint portal and content management but would like a more secure environment for content management due to regulatory changes in the industry. Implement Oracle Content Services as the content management services. Oracle Content Services can manage (mirror) content in MSFT content management system (this still can be leveraged.) Additional background Oracle Content Services: Oracle Content Services , a component of Oracle Collaboration Suite 10g, introduces significant new functionality for Records Management and information life cycle management, as well as Web services to surface content within your enterprise applications and business processes. By making content management technology affordable and simple for knowledge workers throughout the enterprise, Oracle Content Services truly provides “content management for the rest of us”. Oracle Content Services manages all your enterprise information in the Oracle Database. You already trust enterprise database technology to securely manage structured data from transactional applications. Now use that same technology to manage your unstructured content (business documents, plans, designs, multimedia files, email and voice mail messages). Reduce TCO by only having to buy, administer and upgrade one server, instead of using fragmented departmental file server solutions. Oracle Content Services uniquely delivers the necessary fusion of data and content so that your enterprise can succeed in an increasingly competitive business environment and comply with increasingly stringent regulations. With the security, scalability and reliability of the Oracle Database, Oracle Content Services enables teams to collaborate on documents in shared workspaces while preventing unauthorized access, virus attacks, or mistaken deletes. Users improve productivity with Web-based file access and sharing, fast and accurate search, versioning, workfllow and approval processing. Oracle Content Services enables you to reduce business risk and support regulatory compliance initiatives enterprise-wide with solid Records Management capabilities. Oracle Content Services seamlessly integrates people, processes, and systems on a unified, scalable, standards-based content management platform.
  • Key points for this section: Oracle Fusion Middleware supports heterogeneous web services environment. Many points of interoperability between Oracle Fusion Middleware and Microsoft .NET and Windows Server System
  • Key points: Early on, two competing web services platforms, Microsoft .NET and Java J2EE, emerged and have since become dominant. While Oracle has actively promoted J2EE as the preferred web services platform, requirements for interoperability between the two are inevitable. Oracle Fusion Middleware provides standards based interoperability with .NET, “real-world” interoperability testing of mixed environments, and web services management that can deal with both J2EE and .NET web services. Oracle is one of the few vendors that have invested in enabling heterogeneous web services interoperability. We do more than sit on standards bodies. We focus on testing real interoperability (.NET, WSE and variants, AXIS, IBM/BEA) We do real world testing -- Production testing in house. This means that we test in production web services from third party vendors such as above and that Oracle web services interoperates with these vendor products. Oracle Fusion Middleware leverages standards and delivers implementation independence: In addition to .NET and J2EE, other options for consuming MSFT technolgies include: JSP’s calling a COM object using “bridge” technology Oracle includes a COM Bridge in its ASP to JSP Migration toolkit which allows JSP’s to access COM objects MS provides “wrappers” which bridge COM and .NET COM client can call .NET with COM callable wrappers .NET client can call a COM object with Runtime callable wrapper N.B. wrappers require marshalling among complex types Develop in J# which allows connectivity to Enterprise Java Note J# supports earlier versions of JDK and may require custom code to connect with Enterprise Java
  • Oracle’s ongoing efforts on deeper web services interoperability.
  • Use case of how Jdeveloper and ADF would consume .NET web services through which web services standards
  • Use case of how J2EE web services would work with .NET using Jdeveloper and OC4J.
  • Use case of Oracle database customers interested in reusing PL/SQL stored procedures to .NET.
  • Oracle BPEL Process Manager enables organizations to model, deploy and efficiently make changes to business processes based on the Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) standard. BPEL is the proven standard for process orchestration and is the cornerstone of a Service-Oriented Architecture. Through web services, Oracle BPEL Manager can interoperate w/ a number of MSFT technologies --- including BizTalk server, MSFT MQ, MSFT WinForms and Infopath. This means that using Oracle BPEL Manager, organizations can leverage business processes orchestrated by MSFT BizTalk server – no need to redo the process and if the organization already has a MSFT MQ messaging backbone that can be leveraged for processes orchestrated by Oracle BPEL manager. In addition, Oracle BAM can monitor business events in MSFT MQ and send an alert to MSFT Outlook on that real-time data.
  • Key points: Microsoft .NET - Oracle Web Services Manager provides a .NET agent that can be used to provide security for heterogeneous environments that include .NET Web Services.            Web Services Manager includes an Agent that is used to apply policies to .NET web services. Oracle Web Services Manager is a comprehensive solution for adding policy-driven best practices to existing or new Web services and provides the key security and management capabilities necessary to deploy Services-Oriented Architectures across line of business applications. Oracle Web Services Manager allows IT management to centrally define policies that govern Web services operations (such as access policy, logging policy, and load balancing) , and then wrap these policies around Web services without requiring modification to those services. In addition, Oracle Web Services Manager collects monitoring statistics to ensure quality of service, uptime, and security threats ad displays them in a Web dashboard. It brings better control and visibility over Web services. With Oracle Web Services Manager, compliance risk and time to market are greatly reduced. Key features: Secure and manage both Java and .NET web services Integrate application functionality with web services Enforce and customize operational polices consistently through a single interface Automate operational issue resolution by dynamically updating policies Gain visibility into service interactions Enforce policies based on real-time monitoring data Validate compliance with IT best practices
  • Key points: It is very common to find companies that have significant deployments of both Microsoft and Oracle environments. Effective user management, security and privacy across these environments is crucial for a smooth running IT organization. Oracle provides a number of capabilities that provide a seamless security and identity infrastructure that can span both environments: Enterprise Single Sign-On – Oracle Fusion Middleware provides native integration with Microsoft Active Directory to provide heterogeneous SSO beyond the Microsoft environment:          Support for Windows log-in password for protected domains         Enterprise Single Sign-On for Oracle environments with Microsoft Sharepoint Portal Server, Content Management Server, Commerce Server and BizTalk Server. User Provisioning – Oracle provides scalable end-user provisioning through: Interoperability with Microsoft Identity Integration Server (MIIS) User provisioning is enabled for Microsoft environments, Oracle, PeopleSoft, JDE and any other applications Oracle Fusion Middleware (CoreID) can provision users to ActiveDirectory and CoreId Provisioning can automate the process of provisioning and de-provisioning the account into multiple backend systems from the HR system. Directory Integration & Virtualization – Oracle Fusion Middleware can synchronize AD and OID identity information and create virtual directory across AD and other directories for a single view of the user for compliance or in cases where you have many users connecting outside your own network (suppliers, partners, etc.) Federated Identity Management – Oracle Fusion Middleware provides federated identity and native integration with Microsoft Active Directory including Support for Windows log-in password for protected domains Open architecture support security standards such as SAML and Liberty for integrating Oracle, Microsoft and other third party applications   Define and Enforce Policies Consistently – Oracle Web Services Manager is a comprehensive solution for adding policy-driven best practices to existing or new Web services and provides the key security and management capabilities necessary to deploy Services-Oriented Architectures across line of business applications. Oracle Web Services Manager allows IT management to centrally define policies that govern Web services operations (such as access policy, logging policy, and load balancing) , and then wrap these policies around Web services without requiring modification to those services. In addition, Oracle Web Services Manager collects monitoring statistics to ensure quality of service, uptime, and security threats ad displays them in a Web dashboard. It brings better control and visibility over Web services. With Oracle Web Services Manager, compliance risk and time to market are greatly reduced. Additional Proofpoints on the above: MIIS is MSFT’s data integration and provisioning component of their identity management solution. Standalone MIIS does not offer a fully functional identity lifecycle management solution as it lacks business process workflow capabilities and important identity administration features. Integrated with MIIS, Oracle COREid Provisioning provides the user administrative interfaces and applies business rules through workflow while MIIS functions as the provisioning engine. Oracle COREid Provisioniong provides the business logic, leveraging MIIS as the data synchronization engine. COREid Provisioning provides an MIIS connector that can be used for a provisioning and password management solution based on MIIS Oracle Database is a supported provisioning target for MIIS COREid Access provides access management and single sign-on for resources for Microsoft IIS, ISA. COREid Identity and Access APIs are compatible with the Microsoft Common Language Runtime (CLR). COREid Access supports integrated Windows Authentication. This allows users who have logged into their desktop machine to launch a browser, navigate to a protected page without having to login again. ASP.NET Connector allows COREid Access to support single sign-on to applications on ASP.NET. Windows Impersonation provides a mechanism for integration with Microsoft Kerberos and identity propagation to Microsoft applications such as SharePoint and Content Management Server. AzMan Plugin is a feature of COREid Access that integrates COREid Access authorization with Microsoft Authorization Manager. This allows COREid to enforce AzMan policies in a broader heterogeneous environment. Oracle OC4J JAZN supports AD as a source for authentication and authorization
  • Oracle Portal interoperates with Microsoft environments to provide unified information access across a heterogeneous enterprise. Among the integration points are:   Microsoft functionality in portlets – Oracle Portal has featured a modular design using “portlets” for several years. These portlets can contain applications based upon .NET web services, Microsoft Active Server Pages, Visual Basic, as well as Java Server Pagers, Enterprise Java Beans thus providing a seamless enterprise dashboards that can include both J2EE and .NET functionality.   Deploy on .NET Servers Oracle Portal portlets can also be deployed remotely on Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) and .NET Servers.   Render Office Documents Oracle Portal can render native Microsoft documents (like Word and Excel) in a web format.   Single Sign-on with Active Directory – real-time interoperability with Microsoft Active Directory provides single sign-on capabilities for Microsoft/Oracle Portal users.

  • Key Points: Most knowledge workers use Microsoft Office to do their day-to-day jobs. They maintain their calendars w/ billable hours, capture their travel expenses, schedule vacations, use email for communication. They infrequently log into enterprise applications. When they do, they are reentering data that’s been entered into previously in their desktop with Office. What if you can eliminate that inefficiency. What if you can work in Microsoft Office and submit or initiate an enterprise processes that you are a part of in the familiar interface of Office. What if while working in Office, you are offered a relevant contextual information that would help you do your job. For example, you may be looking to schedule a vacation, while in Outlook calendar scheduling you see that your vacation balance is 20 days and you are alerted that if you don’t use 3 of those days, you will lose it. Or, you are reviewing a positive feedback on one of your employees. You go and attach that email to the employee record through Outlook. Then, you might want to give him a spot bonus for a job well done. While submitting a request for spot bonus, what if you can see what your spot bonus budget is for the group. These are relevant very much timely information that you would have had to log into several systems to get presented to you in Office. Would this make your life easier? Business Benefits of leveraging Office with Enterprise Processes include: Improved and more flexible access to enterprise applications/systems Ensures that enterprise applications/systems are updated accurately and timely Better decision making: Empowers employees with accurate data and guided processes Greater efficiency and worker productivity
  • These are a few example interoperability scenarios between Oracle and Microsoft Office that we discussed in the previous slide:
  • One potential use case of kicking off a expense approval process in Office using BPEL Manager. User fill data in Excel form When user submits filled template, XML data is extracted and BPEL process is invoked (using C# DLL) XML data transformed into WordML document using XSL Task assigned to manager and email notification sent Manager’s action on Word document results in web service call to Workflow Task routed to next manager After approvals received, Word template is used to create notification to be sent to user
  • Key points: Oracle Content Services acts seamlessly as a file server for Windows (e.g., Oracle Drive). This means that you can use Oracle Content Services as a letter drive (mapped network drive) or as a web folder. MSFT Office apps can use any command in the file menu to access, modify or create files in Oracle Content Services (e.g., Oracle Drive) Oracle Content Services can act as the underlying and secure content managed repository for SharePoint portal and content management. Oracle Collaboration Suite runs natively in Windows Oracle Messenger, WebConferencing and Calendar (desktop apps) runs on Windows Oracle Unified Messaging, Calendar, LDAP address book integrate with MSFT Outlook (through Oracle Connector for Outlook) Oracle Messenger interface can be launched from pull down menu option in MSFT Office Additional Background: Collaboration, Document and Content Management   Interoperability with Microsoft Office is baseline assumption for much of the work Oracle does with Oracle Collaborations Suite and Oracle Content Services. Oracle offers rich, seamless integration with windows environments in the following areas: The OracleDrive is a network drive provided by Oracle to move documents and other content created by MS Office via the native Windows WebDAV protocol. End users can save documents directly on the OracleDrive from any office application and then can benefit from power searching and management services to maintain, version, secure and protect electronic content of all types. WebDAV and XML Publisher - integration between WebDAV and XML Publisher can be used to push BI and other Oracle Applications documents directly to the desktop rather than through a manual email process like the the Mendocino projects that SAP has outlined. Oracle Calendar features native calendar services for Outlook through the Oracle Connector for Outlook, a PDA Synch capability and a native Windows desktop client Oracle Mail provides a massively scalable back end email system that can be accessed through Microsoft Outlook and also can deliver voicemails directly to Outlook. Oracle Real Time Collaboration includes Oracle Messenger and Oracle Web Conferencing which can cost effectively extend the capabilities of PowerPoint, Project and all other MS Office applications to web conferences through a standard web browser
  • Screenshot of using Excel for modeling.   Oracle provides Microsoft Excel vastly expanded analytical capabilities by integrating Oracle OLAP features with Excel through the Oracle Business Intelligence Spreadsheet Add-In. This feature combines the analytic power and scalability of Oracle OLAP with the familiarity of Microsoft Excel by embedding OLAP capabilities directly within Excel. With it, users can:   Report against common business definitions that are stored centrally in the Oracle Database. This provides a consistent and quality view of their corporate information. Perform ad hoc analysis on this data using traditional OLAP exploration techniques such as drilling, pivoting, and paging the view of data. Seamlessly integrate Oracle OLAP data with existing Excel functionality such as functions and charts.
  • Beginning with Office 2003, Microsoft provided a set of new capabilities within Office called MS Office Extensibility Technologies. Among these technologies, Microsoft provided, for the first time ever, industry standard definitions of their proprietary Office file formats. These XML Reference Schemas provide developers the ability to manipulate Office document content from external applications and web services.   This greatly enhances the value of a number of innovative XML technologies from Oracle including Oracle XML Publisher , a publishing tool that can output documents in multiple formats (including Microsoft formats, PDF, etc.), using multiple document templates and styles sheets. That makes dealing with documents and forms much more efficient, requiring far less maintenance required. Oracle XML Publisher offers you the most efficient, scalable reporting solution available for complex, distributed environments. It provides a central architecture for generating and delivering information to employees, customers, and suppliers—both securely and in the right format. Oracle XML Publisher reduces the high costs associated with the development, customization and maintenance of business documents; while increasng the efficiency of reports management. Furthermore, it reduces a company's dependency on third party software systems that are required to format business documents, reducing the complexity of your reporting infrastructure. Utilizing a set of familiar desktop tools such as Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft Office users can create and maintain their own report formats based on data extracts supplied by a multitude of sources. Multiple document output formats Report layouts developed and maintained using familiar desktop applications Reduced costs and complexity by eliminating third party solution Developed completely on open standards Large number of supported document delivery channels and protocols Oracle XML Management   Beginning with Office 2003, Microsoft provided a set of new capabilities within Office called MS Office Extensibility Technologies.
