Oracle To Sun Customers And IBM: “We’re In It To Win It”

Posted by pridham on September 17, 2009

Gotta love this advertisement from Oracle, directed at current Sun Microsystems customers and now rival IBM, stating its intentions with SPARC and Solaris before the monster acquisition is even a done deal. It’s a full-page ad that appeared in the European edition of the Wall Street Journal today, and you can find it online on the Oracle website as well.

OPM3: Assessment and Certification

Posted by pridham on September 15, 2009

Many people know that an assessment using PMI’s Organizational Project Management Maturity Model (OPM3) is intended to help organizations to develop capabilities in project, program or portfolio management. But such agendas are not an end to themselves. Leaders in organizations undertake OPM3 assessments for reasons that are relevant to their own company’s specific business goals, whether those pertain to customers, internal business processes, learning, growth or financial objectives. Different stakeholders within an organization may have different motivations for using OPM3.

Building Intelligent Processes with Insight-Driven Agility

Posted by pridham on September 15, 2009

Business processes are part of the DNA of an organization. They enable the organization to deliver service to its customers, executing the business model in a consistent way. As organizations change, their business processes have to change with them. Agility at this process level is essential — the ability to quickly adapt to changes in market conditions, regulatory requirements, or business models. Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) forms the foundation of process agility.

Process-Driven SOA Development

Posted by pridham on September 15, 2009

One of the major benefits of SOA is its ability to align IT with business processes. Business processes are important because they define the way business activities are performed. Business processes change as the company evolves and improves its operations. They also change in order to make the company more competitive.

Little rival creates big problem for Oracle

Posted by pridham on September 15, 2009

A group called the Open Database Alliance, united to ensure that Sun’s MySQL database software would live on as a cheaper, open source alternative, had gotten the regulators’ attention. Though they essentially reproduce MySQL, alliance members argued they were limited by its licensing terms from commercializing their version to its fullest potential.
