Oracle Fusion Middleware: Who Stole Mark Drake?
For a not so technical but far more entertaining introduction to Oracle Fusion Middleware, take a look at the suspense thriller “Who Stole Mark Drake?”.
Posted By: Michael Siebert
The folks at Oracle Studios have been hard at work, setting the stage for a modern game of stolen identity. Starring a cast of international cyber cops and robbers, this 11 minute whodunnit tale takes you on a global journey across several time zones and continents. Now I won’t spoil the ending, but I will tell you itdoesn’t
end with Larry firing a few RPG’s from his Italian jet fighter into an abandoned warehouse filled with eBay scammers (perhaps Oracle Game Studios can work on that one). It probably won’t win any Academy Awards either - although the soundtrack isn’t too shabby. It will, however, give you a good introduction to the various products and components of Oracle Fusion Middleware and how it all came together to answer the question of “Who Stole Mark Drake?”. After the film is over and you’ve regained your composure, be sure to go through the nine “Debrief Videos” , each of which answers various questions about how the mystery was solved through the use of Oracle technologies such as the Customer Data Hub, BPEL Process Manager and BAM, and Oracle Identity Management to name a few.
If you’re like me, you’ve made a commitment for 2007 to better understand Oracle Fusion. But what is Fusion? Applications? Architecture? Middleware? Actually, it can be all of these. The good news is that there is plenty of information out there to help us sort through the confusion about Fusion. I’ll be focusing on the trials and tribulations of my journey to better understand the various concepts, products, and components of Oracle Fusion in future posts. Until then, grab some popcorn and enjoy the show!
