Oracle Fusion Middleware in a Real Life Example

This is a video that I have prepared for one of my clients some time ago to demonstrate how Oracle Fusion Middleware can be used to satisfy their business requirements.

The client, a global provider of marine transportation services, wanted to automate the communication process between their vessels and headquarters. The implementation approach had to take into account three major requirements; to minimize the network traffic between vessels and headquarters as much as possible as ships are using satellite connection to establish connection with headquarters which is very expensive, to automate the backend workflow and approval process and to provide a solution that wouldn’t require any installation to take place on the vessels.

The purpose of this video is not to provide step-by-step instructions on how to implement such a solution but to give you a broad overview of the capabilities and features of several Oracle Fusion Middleware products and technologies, such as Weblogic 10.3.2 as the Application Server, SOA 11g consisting of BPEL for designing our business processes and BAM for monitoring  the business services using interactive real-time dashboard reports, Oracle Business Intelligence 11g as the reporting solution for generating dynamic reports, Oracle Universal Content Server 10g for managing and filling all documents generated, Oracle Internet Directory 11g as the LDAP directory service and Oracle Database 11g as the persistence store.
