The previous OTNArchBeat program featured a conversation with three members of a team that integrated ten different Oracle Cloud PaaS services in a live demonstration before an audience at last year’s Oracle Partner Network Fusion Middleware Forum. That podcast was supposed to include Arun Pareek and Matt Wright, who had their own cloud integration story to tell about combining nine Oracle Cloud PaaS services into an innovative mobile healthcare solution as part of the Oracle Integrated Cloud Hackathon  held in Australia late last year. But thanks to a perfect storm of schedule conflicts and technical glitches, that first program had to proceed without Arun and Matt. This new program sets things right. Listen!

 

This program was recorded on March  8, 2017.

In March of 2016 a small band of Oracle ACE Directors created a challenge for themselves: to integrate ten Oracle Cloud services into a system that would allow Twitter users to nominate and vote for the musical performers they wanted to appear at a concert. The truly challenging part of that challenge was that these ACE Directors would build this system in one hour, and do it live in front of an audience at the Oracle Fusion Middleware Partner Forum in Valencia, Spain.

 

And that’s exactly what they did.

 

In this program three members of that team talk about that project, about the evolution of the cloud services involved, and about the 8-part technical article series they wrote about the project (See Soaring Through the Clouds in Additional Resources, below).

This program was recorded on February 27, 2017.

The panel for this podcast was to include Arun Pareek and Matt Wright, whose prize-winning entry in an Oracle Cloud hackathon in Australia involved the integration of nine different Oracle Cloud services. Sadly, last-minute schedule conflicts got in the way. But no worries! Arun and Matt will be featured in their own podcast, available on April 12, 2017.

The Internet of Things continues to generate its share of buzz in the world of enterprise IT. But what’s happening beyond the buzz? What impact is IoT having in the real world? How is it shaping the future of enterprise IT?

 

This program explores those and other IoT questions from the perspectives of three IT professionals who are no strangers to IoT projects.

 

This program was recorded on January 9, 2017.

If you are reading this the chances are very good that you have spent at least some time reading technical books, you know, books about software development or about the various tools and techniques involved in accomplishing that particular task. But have you given any thought to writing your own technical book?

 

This program dives into what it takes to write and publish a technical book: deciding on a topic, collaborative writing, finding a publisher, and so on. Driving the conversation is a panel of people who have written technical books, along with a representative from a prominent tech publisher.

 

This program was recorded on December 20, 2016.

Software architecture never stands still. As the leading edge of the evolution of software architecture brings us microservices, increases the role of APIs, and even elevates JavaScript to first class citizenship among programming languages, the trailing edge reminds us of the ongoing need to feed the legacy dinosaur.

 

This program features a panel comprised of founding members of the Open Modern Enterprise Software Architecture group, otherwise known as OMESA. The group was born out of conversations at Oracle OpenWorld 2016, and now dedicates itself to exploring and understanding how modern software architecture can be made to serve the evolving needs of today’s enterprises.

 

Guest Producer credit for this program goes to Oracle ACE Director Luis Weir, who suggested the topic and selected the panelists.

 

This program was recorded on November 2, 2016.

This program was recorded on Wednesday, September 21, 2016, during Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco. "During" is the operative word, since the podcast was actually recorded in my hotel room, several blocks from Moscone Center, where OOW16 was held. The topic was suggested by Oracle ACE and frequent OTN contributor Arturo Viveros, who, along with other panelists, was in town for the big Oracle event. Listen.

In the lead-up to Oracle OpenWorld 2016 in San Francisco, which is happening in a matter of days, I thought it would be interesting to get an update on Oracle middleware. Information about any product announcements that may emanate from OpenWorld is closely-guarded, and my position on the food chain is certainly far below that of anyone who might have any such information. So this program is about the here and now, the current state in the evolution of several middleware products.

 

The panelists for this discussion represent product management leadership for a variety of products under the middleware umbrella. Of course, that's a very large umbrella, covering more products than could possibly be discussed in one 30 minute podcast. Stay tuned...

oracle-HQ-350.pngFor this episode the OTN ArchBeat podcast ventures deep into Oracle HQ for a conversation with Vikas Anand, Senior Director of Product Management for Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Integration Cloud Service, and Ram Menon, Product Manager for Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

 

This discussion was originally made available as a video on the OTN ArchBeat YouTube channel. But I thought it would be a good idea to make it available in a format you could consume without crashing into something while driving or riding a bike or walking.

I had the great pleasure of attending this year's ODTUG Kscope event in Chicago. I spent most of my time recording 2 Minute Tech Tip videos, but on Tuesday June 28 I invited a large group of the people behind the Kscope 2015 ADF/MAF track to join me in my hotel room for what turned out to be a freewheeling conversation about Oracle development tools, modernizing Forms applications, Oracle OpenWorld, and whatever else was on their minds. Thanks to my trusty microphone, you get to be a fly on the wall for that conversation.

The topic for the latest OTN ArchBeat Podcast was suggested by Oracle ACE Director Ron Batra, who wanted to explore several questions around performance tuning in the cloud:

 

  • Is there a need for performance tuning in the cloud? Why?
  • How does it differ from performance tuning in a non-cloud architecture?
  • Is it possible to develop a methodology for multi-cloud applications? What are the obstacles?

 

Ron also selected the panelists for this discussion:

On March 7, 2016 Oracle ACE Director Sten Vesterli published Concrete is Dead on his blog. Don't let the title fool you -- the post is not about building materials. The following quote gets to the heart of the issue:

 

“In IT, we have been talking about software engineering for the 30 years I’ve been in the business. But we are even further from being an engineer's profession than we were 30 years ago.”

 

If a statement like that doesn't warrant further discussion, what does?

 

As soon as I read Sten's post I told him I wanted to do a podcast around the topic, and asked him to suggest a few panelists. Oracle ACE Kim Berg Hansen and Oracle ACE Director John King were on Sten's list and responded to the invitation.

 

At about the same time I started an OTN Community discussion on the topic. Oracle ACE Associate Phil Wilkins was one of the first to share his thoughts in that discussion, so I invited him to join the podcast panel as well.

 

The program was recorded on Monday April 25, 2016.

man-at-mic.jpgThis OTN ArchBeat Podcast started with a brief conversation with Oracle ACE Mike Riley as he passed through the OTN Lounge at Oracle OpenWorld 2015. It was then further pushed along by a suggestion from Oracle ACE Associate Phil Wilkins (PhilWilkins), who was interested in a learning about the role of user groups in the Oracle community. Finally, that idea has fully percolated.

 

With more than 900 Oracle User Groups worldwide, the chances are very good that you’re already a member of one of these organizations. But whether you’re an active member, or just pressing your face against the window, wondering what’s going on, you’ll want to listen as we explore the user group experience from the unique perspectives of four people whose participation has evolved from that of noobie members to leadership roles within their respective organizations.

In 2012 Oracle ACE Director Cameron Lackpour, an Essbase expert in his own right, gathered a group of similarly talented people to write Developing Essbase Applications: Advanced Techniques for Finance and IT Professionals (CRC Press). In 2015 Cameron once again gathered a group of Essbase experts, including several from the first book, and locked them in a room until they finished writing Developing Essbase Applications: Hybrid Techniques and Practices (also from CRC Press).

 

This podcast, guest produced by Cameron, features a conversation with several of those experts, as they discuss the evolving Essbase application development landscape.
