Oracle Services: Oracle Fusion Renders Unsolved Complexity

Oracle services are well-known for incorporation of impeccable technology, which speeds implementation and lowers the cost of management and change. The innovative apps from this database leader are best to extend the business value of your existing investments. Its latest release, Oracle Fusion, has set high expectations for Oracle. Fusion runs in the heterogeneous environments catering for the complete horizontal and vertical needs of the customer. Claimed to be the most comprehensive middle-ware stack, Fusion acquires the best technology and is integrated across a complete Oracle stack.

Based on open standards, Oracle Fusion is an integrated suite of application. Further, the goal of this Oracle service is to present a process integration layer that spans various organizations. It is better called as application infrastructure foundation, which enables enterprises to create and run intelligent application increasing the business efficiency through maximum utilization of hardware and software architecture. Oracle services define it complete, integrated, hot-pluggable and best-of-breed middleware solution.

Oracle Fusion is a middleware offering software for the development, deployment, and management of SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture). It is best called as hot-pluggable architecture that facilitates the integration of various existing applications and systems with other vendor apps. As the name suggests, Oracle Fusion middleware is a fusion of variety of Oracle services and products. It is a kind of re-branding of many Oracle products, many of which do not even qualify as a middleware, outside of its core applications and databases.

Migrating to Fusion—a real world experience

Although Oracle service claim Fusion to be a robust platform, many companies with best and experienced IT professionals are of the opinion that Fusion or ADF (Application Development Framework) is very difficult. Due to its steep learning curve, it's a daunting prospect for organizations to use to develop their projects. Despite being better than anything else available for Java EE environment, it adds a high-risk proportion for organizations planning to dispose off their existing technology to migrate to the Fusion. If your company plans to migrate, it is important to gain adequate support and mentoring for a successful transition.

While Oracle services continue to add components to the Fusion middle-ware technology stack, our question remains: would there still be a need to switch to something else in a short while in the near future? ADF has been less than widely successful. IT professionals hailing from the Object-oriented background may not be happy with the provided tool; however, they seem happy with the technology and its adopters.

Overall, the technology is absolutely great. However, adopting it on a wide scale has come as a challenge for various organizations. Many do not find migrating to Fusion worth and others do not want to migrate in a fear of losing existing developers and hiring experts, especially, for fusion. After a year of Fusion technology's release, organizations are confused, frustrated, and unsure about making Fusion a part of their organization. Fusion middleware is difficult to learn, use and maintain even though it's the best choice for Java EE.
