The idea for this OTN ArchBeat podcast was suggested by Oracle ACE Director Mia Urman, a self-described Oracle Forms fanatic.


According to Mia, developers have been building mission-critical systems in Oracle Forms for decades, and many organizations have huge investments in these systems. These organizations are now looking for ways to bring these investments forward into mobile, cloud, and other next-generation technologies.


This represents an huge opportunity for experts in relevant Oracle technologies. The discussion captured in this podcast addresses some of the available modernization strategies in order to provide guidance for those who want to take advantage of that opportunity.


Mia also selected the panelists for this discussion.
