Understanding the Benefits of Fusion

1. Oracle Fusion Architecture and Oracle FusionApplications


This paper is divided into two parts. The first part provides a detailed description of the Oracle Fusion Architecture. It also describes the underlying technology that will power the next generation of service-oriented applications developed by Oracle, Oracle partners, and customers. The second part offers a detailed description of Oracle Fusion Applications and how they will take advantage of Oracle Fusion Architecture. It also outlines how Oracle Applications partners and customers can best use the software services and design principles of Oracle Fusion Applications.

2. Oracle Fusion Applications—How Oracle Enables Adaptive Business Processes


This paper explains how Oracle enables the most adaptive business processes today through Oracle Fusion Architecture. It also offers a view of where the business process adaptability will be headed as Oracle Fusion Applications become a reality.

This white paper will demonstrate why you need adaptive business processes.

In addition, it highlights how Oracle Applications enable services orientation without a major upgrade, and why its underlying application architecture provides a solid foundation for services. It also reveals how Oracle Fusion Middleware works in conjunction with Oracle Applications to provide a foundation for adaptive business processes. Finally, it shows how with Fusion Applications, adaptability for business process will be taken to the next level.

3. Oracle Fusion Applications—Delivering Greater Business Insight


The overwhelming feedback is that a majority of business decision-makers today don’t have ready access to high-quality, reliable, timely, and useful information on operating and financial performance at their companies. For decades, organizations have invested in automating business processes by deploying transactional applications in the front and back office. However, these transactional applications were not designed in an information-centric manner, and customers were forced to deploy several business intelligence applications in addition to these systems. In effect, business intelligence was an afterthought and in many cases was reserved for business analysts or a few senior executives who have access to Scorecard-type applications. This highly selective usage of BI applications resulted in a series of critical business and technical challenges faced by organizations today.

4. Oracle Fusion Applications—A Superior Ownership Experience


Oracle’s next-generation enterprise applications will merge the best features from all of Oracle’s product lines—Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft Enterprise, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, and JD Edwards World—into a new enterprise software line called Oracle Fusion Applications. Not just a vision for the future, these changes are happening today, as some of these features are incorporated into the newest releases of Oracle Applications.
