  • 21. 2009 Oracle Fusion Middleware Architects of the Year David JONES Arnaud BENJACAR Gerard HANIFAN Head Architect Integration Architect UI & Security Architect Irish Life Investment Managers (ILIM) needed flexibility. That’s why ILIM’s architecture team—David Jones, Gerry Hanifan, and Arnaud Benjacar, Oracle Magazine’s Oracle Fusion Middleware Architects of the Year—has invested heavily in Oracle Fusion Middleware and SOA. ILIM provides personal financial services in the Irish market. Building on top of its successful Oracle WebLogic Server implementation, ILIM has used Oracle Fusion Middleware to create a shared enterprise service bus infrastructure with a set of common services and integration elements. “We wanted an architecture that was loosely coupled, would allow us the flexibility to change, and didn’t require special technology skills to manage,” says Jones, head architect, ILIM. “That’s why we selected a one-stop solution from Oracle.” Security and deployment flexibility are also important to ILIM’s architecture team. “Oracle Fusion Middleware allows you to choose the right security treatment for the range of transport protocols used when integrating with different types of client software,” says Hanifan, UI and security architect, ILIM. 21 UK Oracle User Group – March 2010
