Product Roadmap For Enterprise 2.0 After BEA Acquisition

On July 1, 2008 Charles Phillips, President, and Thomas Kurian, SVP for Fusion Middleware, gave an online briefing about Oracle’s Middleware Strategy. Here are some highlights relevant to the Enterprise 2.0 and Portal space.

The level of future support is divided into three categories:

  • Strategic Products: Oracle Universal Content Management, Oracle WebCenter Framework, Oracle WebCenter Spaces, BEA Ensemble and Pathways
    • BEA Products being adopted immediately with limited re-design into Oracle Fusion Middleware
    • No corresponding Oracle Products exist in majority of cases
    • Corresponding Oracle Products converge with BEA Products with rapid integration over 12-18 months
  • Continue & Converge Products: Oracle Portal, BEA WebLogic Portal (aka: Oracle WebLogic Portal), BEA AquaLogic User Interaction (aka: Oracle WebCenter Interaction)
    • BEA Products being incrementally re-designed to integrate with Oracle Fusion Middleware
    • Gradual integration with existing Oracle Fusion Middleware Technology to broaden features with automated upgrades
    • Continued development & maintenance for at least 9 years
  • Maintenance Products: Commerce Services and Collabra
    • BEA had EOL’d due to limited adoption prior to Oracle M&A
    • Continued Maintenance with appropriate fixes for 5 years

One of the key areas our product teams are working on is to ensure the interoperability across these products. The key interoperability vehicle being WSRP 1.0 and 2.0, thus enabling WLP and Interaction to consume WebCenter services, such as the Document Library, Discussions, and Email task flows. On the flip side, it will allow WebCenter applications to consume portlets from WLP and Interaction as well.
