Your Next Business Transformations will require a Hybrid Cloud Architecture

This posting represents highlights of the upcoming
presentations at the annual Oracle EA Summit, October 27 at Oracle OpenWorld.  Talk to your Oracle account manager for an
invitation – Today!

The public cloud has typically been outside of the domain of
enterprise architects. On the surface, it has been considered an external silo
where procurement decisions have been driven by line of business executives. But not anymore. Business processes extend into the
cloud. And, the cloud extends into the
enterprise.

However, this state of affairs is changing rapidly as
customers increasingly embrace cloud computing. Enterprise architects are
called on not only to review public cloud implementations but also to
understand how best to integrate new cloud offerings with existing on-premises
information systems. Most companies will have a combination of assets combining
public cloud SaaS, PaaS and IaaS with their existing on-premises systems. The
marketing folks are calling this Hybrid IT. Enterprise architects therefore face a new set of challenges as they
figure out how to integrate these systems with each other.

Today’s enterprise architects face a shifting set of
circumstances. In the next two years, a growing number of companies plan to
move key parts of their computing workloads to public clouds to take advantage
of lights-out automated software provisioning and management, rapid project
implementation, elastic scalability, and subscription-based pricing models. To
keep up with consumer demand, IT has become an external service broker. In some
cases IT pros have been forced to support heterogeneous cloud “silos”
that may have proprietary methods of security, integration, management, and
governance. These trends are forcing core IT departments to formalize
enterprise governance and enterprise architecture to mitigate risk.

Oracle EA Summit Agenda 

The Oracle Enterprise Architecture team has helped a number
of large-scale early adopters on their journey to a variety of Hybrid implementations. At this year’s Oracle Enterprise
Architecture Summit, held at Oracle Open World on September 27, 2015, three
customer architects will speak to their experiences in building these next
generation platforms. See
the full agenda and abstracts here
.

  • Dev/Test in the Oracle Public Cloud
  • Big Data in the Oracle Public Cloud
  • Integration in the Oracle Public Cloud

As a bonus, Peter Magnusson, SVP Cloud Development, Oracle
will clarify the requirements and plans for Oracle’s enterprise-class and production
workload cloud services.  Last year,
Thomas Kurian, President, Development, Oracle also spoke to the landscape of technology cloud services. You
