Oracle Whitepaper on Benefits of .NET Introp

As part of Oracle's Middleware Fusion announcements last week, Oracle has published a whitepaper on the benefits and techniques for interoperability with .NET for software projects using Java or any of Oracle's products.  The whitepaper starts off identifying three key areas to focus on for Oracle and Microsoft mixed applications:
  1. Streamline IT operations by simplifying and extending the ability to develop and manage heterogeneous IT systems and deliver on vendor-independent SOA strategies (across Java, .NET, legacy, packaged applications).
  2. Address information security and compliance issues by leveraging investments in Active Directory to provide comprehensive provisioning, access control, governance and security capabilities.
  3. Increase user productivity by enabling workers to be more productive by using familiar desktop tools to access, analyze and work with enterprise information.
The paper then addresses specific technical ways to develop and manage mixed-platform solutions:
  • Use web services to build composite applications. Once services are developed, mutual support for Web services standards such as BPEL (Business Process Execution Language) ensures interoperability between Oracle BPEL Process Manager and Microsoft’s BizTalk servers. Additionally, Oracle Web Services Manager provides capabilities to secure, manage and enforce operational policies for both Java and .NET Web services, all from a single interface.
  • Oracle Enterprise Manager help companies oversee configuration changes and enforce standardized policies within Oracle and Microsoft environments simultaneously.
  • Active Directory can be fully leveraged and utilized with the Oracle Identity Management solution.
  • Office integration. Oracle Fusion Middleware can help companies address the issue of employee productivity by connecting Microsoft Office products such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint with Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards and Siebel as well as non-Oracle applications.
