Oracle moves a step closer to Fusion
February 20, 2007[From ComputerWeekly]
The launch of Oracle E-Business Suite 12 last month is a major step towards Oracle's first fully standards-based, service oriented architecture (SOA) suite, Fusion Applications, due in 2008.
Fusion Applications is a collection of enterprise resource planning programs based on Oracle's core database management system that make extensive use of web services. It is separate from Oracle's various branded business applications, such as PeopleSoft Enterprise and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, although they will use a common applications platform called Oracle Fusion Middleware.
