Service Oriented Architecture and Application Infrastructure

Oracle Corporation Strategy

Oracle Corporation built its business by dominating the database market, providing the central repositories of crucial information that organizational enterprise must maintain and use to complete transactions. Oracle has extended its core businesses for keeping track of technology infrastructure, employees, sales, inventory, and customers. Since 2005, Oracle has brought a controlling interest in upwards of 60 companies with specialized expertise in niche areas of software technology. Its recent acquisitions and deployment of resources have in cloud computing.

Extension of the Oracle Core Software Business

  Hardware   Database Platform - Extended   Operating Systems  
   Middleware Software   Application Development   Cloud Computing  

Oracle has been marketing complete systems rather than requiring customers to assemble disparate parts from multiple hardware and software vendors; this is in addition to giving select customers access to its Fusion software product suite. This software has been integrating many of the products that Oracle has acquired into a single software platform; the stated design of the Fusion architecture is to consolidate functions available in rival products: SAP, IBM, Microsoft, and Towards that end, Oracle has been targeting Wall Street firms, many of which were Sun Microsystems largest customers, with the roll-out of Fusion.

Service Oriented Architecture and Oracle SOA Suite

Enterprise SOA: service oriented architecture requires an infrastructure which will provide reliable, manageable, secure, and high performance communication between the consumers and providers of services. The Oracle Corporation application infrastructure and tools have been designed to meet these requirements. Oracle has been combining areas of strength from its acquisition of Sun Microsystem SOA products into an Oracle roadmap and promoting its software as providing value through cost reduction, operational efficiencies, and producing intelligent data.

The Oracle E-Business SOA suite provides integrated SCA-based designer with drag-and-drop features for assembling metadata-driven business applications. There are unified events and services for enabling of applications through event-driven SOA. The Oracle SOA platform enables end-to-end instance tracking and business visibility into enterprise-wide implementations.

The Oracle Service Bus is a lightweight and scalable SOA integration platform for connecting, mediating, and managing interactions between heterogeneous services, legacy applications, packaged applications and multiple enterprise service bus instances across an enterprise-wide service network.

Oracle Exadata Database and Storage Servers

Oracle is promoting its servers as being faster, more reliable, and secure than its competitor technologies. One of its strategic objectives is to become the leading high-end server business for both online transaction processing and data warehousing. Oracle Exadata Database combines smart storage software and industry standard hardware to deliver database storage performance. Oracle Exadata Storage Servers use a parallel architecture to increase data bandwidth between the database server and storage, linear scalability, and high reliability. Storage software offloads data-intensive query processing from Oracle Database 11g servers. The result is faster parallel data processing and less data movement through higher bandwidth connections.

  • Exadata Smart Scan processes queries at the storage layer; it returns only the relevant rows and columns to the database server.

  • Exadata Smart Flash Cache has been designed to addresses random disk input/output bottleneck problems by caching frequently accessed data to fast hardware storage.

  • Exadata Hybrid Columnar Compression reduces the size of data warehousing tables and reductions in disk space for primary, standby, and backup databases.

SYS-ED have been evaluating reports on: 1- The performance and concurrency of queries and how much less data is being transported. 2- Claims regarding quantifiable improvements in input/output response time and efficiencies in hardware. 3- The accuracy of reported performance improvements in data warehousing queries.

Oracle Training by SYS-ED

SYS-EDís Oracle course offerings and training programs draw upon our experience with the Oracle database and software in a multiple operating environments: UNIX, Linux, MS Windows, and IBM mainframe.

In the 1980ís, our system consultants implemented first generation Oracle databases and trained data processing personnel how to design, administer, and optimize client specific Oracle databases.

In the 1990ís, our PL/SQL curriculum and integrated training programs taught how to programmatically extend the Oracle client/server database environment.

From 2000 up through 2008, we taught how to install web servers, code scripts, and develop web applications with:

  • The Oracle Corporation development platform - Oracle Application Server, Oracle database, PL/SQL, Oracle Forms, JBuilder, and JDeveloper.

  • Oracle Corporation software as part of a hybrid commercial and open source software scripting and programming environment: JavaScript, VBScript, ASP, JSP, CGI, PHP, Beans, ActiveX, XML, and Perl.

Oracle Corporation's strategy is to be an end to end service provider with the Oracle database, Solaris operating system, WebLogic and Oracle web severs, and WebLogic and JDeveloper Java development platforms. In addition to our experience with Oracle platform, SYS-ED staff and CETi technology partners are recognized experts with IBM z/OS mainframe system and web server software: programming languages, and IBM MQ (WebSphere MQ) middleware. This provides a privileged perspective from which to explain, teach, and provide educational consultancy on the Oracle roadmap and Fusion software.

Few training or consulting companies have been providing Oracle and WebLogic training services longer or better than SYS-ED.

Performance Objectives - Oracle Software

SYS-ED Oracle courses teach:

  • Coding and debugging PL/SQL on different web server platforms along with the nuances in the Oracle implementation of the structured query language.
  • How to install and migrate to the Oracle database and interact with other mainstream databases: IBMís Db2, Microsoft SQL Server, and SAP - Sybase.
  • How to administer Oracle objects: security, performance, reliability, and data integrity.
  • Migration of databases to Oracle for an efficient implementation of JDBC and high volume database transactions and data redundancy.
  • Oracle database connectivity with the Microsoft .NET framework.
  • The Oracle SOA Suite for developing, managing, and monitoring scalable applications.
  • Solaris administration and programming.
  • Performance monitoring in Solaris environments.
  • Administering MySQL databases.
  • Java programming language - fundamentals up through advanced topics.

The Oracle courseware and training aids used in SYS-ED instructor-led and distance-learning courses is highly respected. The content incorporates an analysis of the program logic and sample programs which have been validated on consultancy projects. Given the intermixing and hybrid implementation of Oracle software with other commercial and open source software, reference material which demonstrates and explains will be fundamental to an effective training experience.

Upon completion of a SYS-ED instructor-led course at the client location, it is standard policy to organize content for future utilization in a web-based training infrastructure. Students are welcome to ask questions back on the job.

Courseware for Teaching

The Computer Education Techniques courseware used in SYS-ED courses consists of student handouts, training aids, and industry-specific examples and exercises. The CETi knowledge base aggregates and analyzes information in the public domain. Content selectively is added to courseware. At the client discretion an industry standard textbook and accompanying presentation slides also can be utilized.
