Series 1 of 2

We joined our Oracle team at the recent Oracle OpenWorld event in San Francisco, CA. The event gave us the opportunity to sit down with new thinkers in various industries and get their take on Oracle and the future of IT strategies.

In this podcast,  we caught up with Nancie Leibowitz, Director of HR Technology at Constellation Energy.  Nancie discusses exciting developments in the utilities industry and the opportunity for information technology to improve efficiencies in HR operations. She talks about onboarding and SOA and how Constellation Energy is hoping to use Oracle’s future Workforce Lifecycle Management solution to become more productive and provide better services.

Service Oriented Architecture: Organizing for Success

In this podcast, enterprise architecture expert Steven Kahn discusses some of the findings that went into the recently published, An Implementor’s Guide to Service Oriented Architecture – Getting it Right, produced by BearingPoint, Composite Software and other contributors. The bottom line: successful implementation of an SOA system is about more than technology. As Kahn explains, challenges in understanding the technology, to developing an IT funding model that will enable it to serve across the enterprise are all critical to success. There are many common implementation pitfalls, but Kahn explains how the process can be made simpler, and hopes to encourage more people to deploy their own SOA.
