Important findings from the Oracle Middleware SummitPublished on: Author: Eduardo Barra Cordeiro Category: News
On January 9, 2020, Qualogy organized its first Oracle Middleware Summit. Our main goal? To discuss with our clients the challenges and solutions brought by cloud to those who use on premise middleware stacks, mainly Oracle SOA Suite and Service Bus. And illustrate its usage through customer use cases.
In this article, I happily share the four different sessions in which I participated. Enjoy!
Session 1: Keynote: Oracle Middleware – Vision and Strategy
Keynote speaker Michel Schildmeijer, Enterprise Architect at Qualogy, started off the event by informing the audience about current updates in the fusion middleware products that are based on Weblogic.
The most important developments are:
- Domain partitions will be deprecated.
- Weblogic remains the foundation.
- All cloud versions will be released for on premise.
- Focus on containers and orchestration.
- Focus in cloud native trends.
o Microservices, serverless
o Private and public clouds
o OS Containers, orchestration frameworks
- Other FMW follow the same path, both cloud and on premise.
- Those who are still on premise try to migrate to a more containerized landscape.
- Develop more cloud native.
- Hybrid situation: Weblogic, FMW, microservices, serverless.
- Do active lifecycle management.
- Weblogic Operator is engineered to work together

Session 2: Oracle Integration Roadmap
The second session revolved around the Oracle Integration Roadmap. As already presented in my post after the OOW19, the highlights are:
- How Oracle envisions the new product architecture – more persona-based user experience – that helps business analysts, applications IT, and integration specialists to work collaboratively.
- The strategies recommended by Oracle when moving SOA Suite stacks to the cloud or the PaaS offer (Oracle Integration Cloud).
- How Oracle envisions the integration portfolio in a hybrid/multi-cloud scenario, This includes centralized management and de-centralized run-time
Session 3: Elaborating on customer use cases
Fluke and Rabobank are two client cases in which I was directly involved. Fluke uses SOA Cloud Service positions its product as a layer to integrate EBS and other applications. If you wish to read more about this topic, please read my previous blog.
Rabobank uses the Oracle API Platform and Oracle Integration Cloud as a solution to the hybrid integration scenario. If you are interested in those topics, I recommend reading my previous posts about the Oracle API Platform and the Oracle Integration Cloud.
Session 4: OIC as a solution to cloud integration on premise apps
Colleague Richard Velden gave another client use example, namely the Rotterdam municipality project. Gemeente Rotterdam uses Oracle Integration Cloud as a solution to cloud integration on premise applications. Additionally, Gemeente Rotterdam creates forms through Visual Builder that support its team in its communications with clients.
Qualogy is ready to help its clients understand and deliver the best solution in the integration with Oracle products.
