  18. 18. Fusion Applications To get this functionality it is all about the technology
  19. 19. Oracle Strategy The most important part is integrated; Fusion is all about the integration of data, but to have integration you need standards across all your data sources - the open, and as everything you need is available from Oracle (or they will buy it) Oracle is complete.

Oracle Fusion Middleware for Applications Market-Leading, Certified, Hot- Pluggable - For a Lower TCO Oracle Fusion Middleware for Applications applies Oracle's market-leading middleware portfolio to the leading business applications. Extend the business value of your applications across user communities, lines of business, and organizations.
  21. 21. Traditional Applications Estate Silo’d Siebel Silo’d Silo’d reporting Analytics reporting reporting EBS Siebel PeopleSoft Bespoke Financials CRM HR App Oracle DB Oracle DB Oracle DB Oracle DB? Each Application Ran in its own silo. Data moved between applications via interfaces often requiring manipulation of data and sometimes via more ‘modern’ technology such as ODBC connections and EDI
  22. 22. Service Orientated Architecture - Wiki • In computing, Service-oriented architecture (SOA) provides methods for systems development and integration where systems group functionality around business processes and package these as interoperable services. • SOA also describes IT infrastructure which allows different applications to exchange data with one another as they participate in business processes. Service-orientation aims at a loose coupling of services with operating systems, programming languages and other technologies which underlie applications. • SOA separates functions into distinct units, or services, which developers make accessible over a network in order that users can combine and reuse them in the production of business applications. • These services communicate with each other by passing data from one service to another, or by coordinating an activity between two or more services. Many commentators[who?] see SOA concepts as built upon and evolving from older concepts of distributed computing and modular programming.

  24. 24. FMW Analogy and Explanation
  25. 25. Traditional Enterprise Reporting Silo’d Siebel Silo’d Silo’d reporting Analytics reporting reporting EBS Siebel PeopleSoft Bespoke Financials CRM HR App Oracle DB Oracle DB Oracle DB Oracle DB? Warehouse ‘enterprise’ reporting Each Application Ran in its own silo, with separate reporting. If you wanted data from multiple applications to be reported on together, you needed to extract it to a warehouse and then have separate reporting on that.
  26. 26. Business Intelligence - Wiki • Business intelligence (BI) refers to skills, knowledge, technologies, applications, quality, risks, security issues and practices used to help a business to acquire a better understanding of market behavior and commercial context. For this purpose it undertakes the collection, integration, analysis, interpretation and presentation of business information. By extension, "business intelligence" may refer to the collected information itself or the explicit knowledge developed from the information. • BI applications provide historical, current, and predictive views of business operations, most often using data already gathered into a data warehouse or a data mart and occasionally working from operational data. Software elements support the use of this information by assisting in the extraction, analysis, and reporting of information. Common functionality of business intelligence applications includes reporting, OLAP, analytics, dashboards, scorecards, data mining, corporate performance management (CPM), and predictive analysis. • BI applications tackle sales, production, financial, and many other sources of business data for purposes that include, notably, business performance management. BI operatives may gather information on comparable companies to produce benchmarks. • Business intelligence — the term dates at least to 1958 — aims to support better business decision-making.[1] Thus one can also characterize a BI system as a decision support system (DSS):[2] BI is sometimes used interchangeably with briefing books, report and query tools and executive information systems. In general, business intelligence systems are data-driven DSS.
  27. 27. Enterprise Performance Management - Wiki • Business performance management (BPM) (or Corporate performance management, Enterprise performance management, Operational performance management, Business performance optimization) is a set of processes that help organizations optimize their business performance. It is a framework for organizing, automating and analyzing business methodologies, metrics, processes and systems that drive business performance. • BPM is seen as the next generation of business intelligence (BI). BPM helps businesses make efficient use of their financial, human, material and other resources. • For years, owners have sought to drive strategy down and across their organizations, they have struggled to transform strategies into actionable metrics and they have grappled with meaningful analysis to expose the cause-and-effect relationships that, if understood, could give profitable insight to their operational decision makers. • Now corporate performance management (CPM) software and methods allow a systematic, integrated approach that links enterprise strategy to core processes and activities. “Running by the numbers” now means something as planning, budgeting, analysis and reporting can give the measurements that empower management decisions.
