Oracle Financials: the Benefits of Oracle’s Fusion Principles

By: Andrew Karasev

Fusion is a generic name, which Oracle is using, to define the new packages of middleware, architecture and also ERP applications. Mainly after the acquisitions Oracle has done, this urge as a need, to incorporate the best of each side. For example, Peoplesoft has excellence on human resources management products, Oracle E-Business (Oracle Applications) is very good on financials (Oracle Financials), and, a still pending to approve, Siebel is one of the best (if not the best) solution for CRM (Customer Relationship Management). 

The middleware and architecture are ready to use, and the Fusion Applications (Oracle’s Project Fusion) is planned to be delivery in 2008. 

In my opinion Oracle is planning to have an excellent set of products, tools and middleware.

The idea around Fusion is BIG. It involves business applications as well as a huge amount of technology that will make a real difference to Oracle Customers.  If the so called Fusion effect occurs, Oracle will have a real competitive advantage over the others. Of course, there is a long way ahead and the market will react, but the first steps are very important and this report deals exactly with such a moment.  

The Fusion strategy is based on some technical principles, such as:

  • Utilization of Web Services (SOA – Service Oriented Architecture);
  • Industry Standards, like J2EE;
  • Business Process to model how the company’s software works (BPEL Standard);
  • BI tools integrated into relevant business transactions;
  • Grid computing to lower cost and increase safety and;
  • Easy management to lower TCO. 

It is going to be great to see such huge software, like Fusion Applications, using these technologies. The companies will benefit the easy of modularity within its business process; this is an old promise, since object technology is around. J2EE is a well established standard, so the applications customizations will be easier and away from proprietary languages. The use of SOA, applied all around the products, will allow easy of integration one of the most expensive issues today.
