Oracle Keynote at Cloud Expo
SYS-CON Events announced today that Oracle was named exclusive "Diamond
Sponsor" of Cloud Expo 2010.
Cloud Expo was announced on February 24, 2007, the day the term "cloud
computing" was coined. That same year, the first Cloud Expo took place in New
York City with 450 delegates.
Next April, Cloud Expo is returning to New York City with more than 5,000
delegates and over 100 sponsors and exhibitors.
An Exclusive Interview with Oracle's Richard Sarwal
"Cloud" has become synonymous with "computing" and "software" in two short
years. Cloud Expo is the new PC Expo, Comdex, and InternetWorld of our
decade. By 2012, more than 50,000 delegates per year will participate in
Cloud Expo worldwide.

Oracle on Ulitzer
Online commerce is no longer just for consumer products, but also for direct
and indirect goods and services. As a result, new demands are placed on
classic customer relationship management (CRM) applications. While most have
successfully automated customer-facing interactions (such as order capture,
configuration, pricing, and order query), they still rely on external systems
to process subsequent steps (such as invoicing, fulfillment, and
pick-pack-ship), which are completed in a back-office enterprise resource
planning (ERP) application. This leads to disjointed business processes and
multiple user interfaces, each executing well within the native application
(CRM or ERP), and requiring the creation of point-to-point and proprietary
integrations and cumbersome custom user interfaces that are difficult to
extend and maintain.

Well, well, well, a little bird points to IBM as gumming up the works with
the European Commission so Oracle and Sun can’t close their deal.
Oracle of course picked up Sun after IBM’s negotiations with Sun failed and
Oracle made IBM the intended target of the proposed acquisition in an ad on
the front page of the Wall Street Journal last week so the idea that IBM is
whispering in the EC’s ear makes perfect sense.
And IBM has plenty of practice using the European Commission to attack its
enemies. Just ask Microsoft.
Oracle CEO Larry Ellison claims the European Commission’s prolonged
investigation of Oracle’s proposed acquisition of Sun, which isn’t
expected to finish much before the agency’s mid-January deadline, is
costing Sun $100 million a month in revenues and a weakened revenue stream
will impact how many employees Sun gets to keep if and when the acquisition

Cloud computing is growing in popularity within enterprises. Software
licensing is a challenge under normal circumstances - but what happens when
you move a part or all of your databases and applications to the cloud? Many
software vendors' product licensing rules do not neatly fit within the
dynamics of cloud computing models or with the complexities of hybrid
environments in which some processes are in the cloud and others are
on-premise (or the even more complex environment in which these are
In much the same way that virtualization complicates software license
acquisition and compliance practices, licensing policies promise to be even
more puzzling in the cloud computing environment as vendors and customers
must navigate new territories. This article will discuss the impact that
cloud services can have on attempting to maintain licensing compliance... (more)
Judge Alsup - who really wishes Oracle and Google had settled so he wouldn't
have to hear the Java trial - is proposing to decide whether APIs are
copyrightable himself and not have the jury wade into that legal brier patch.
However, he is also proposing to instruct the jury that the structure,
sequence and organization of the asserted Java APIs are copyrightable, which
between you, me and those angels dancing on the head of a pin over there is
the same as saying the APIs are copyrighted.
The good judge is going to wait for the jury to come home with a verdict on
whether Google infringed the Java APIs - and the overwhelming evidence
presented at trial suggests it did - before he says whether or not they are
copyrightable and springs that tiger out of its cage.
He's taking this route in an attempt to level the proverbial playing field
for all concerned, according to ... (more)
Oracle and Microsoft, historically so-called “frenemies,” partnered
Monday out of necessity so they won’t be dismissed as doddering old codgers
compared to the cheaper cloud newcomers like Amazon that they’re both
competing against these days.
Oracle said its software – including Java, the Oracle Database and the
WebLogic application server, is immediately available on Windows Server
Hyper-V and Windows Azure fully certified and supported by Oracle. Oracle
said it will allow license mobility on Azure.
Microsoft, in turn, will offer infrastructure instances of Java, the Oracle
Database and the WebLogic Server to Azure customers, and Oracle will make
Oracle Linux available to Azure customers on preconfigured instances.
Java folk are supposed to fancy this deal. Microsoft will support and offer
fully licensed Java on Azure.
Of course Microsoft is heavily invested in it... (more)
