Major Industrial Conglomerates and Government Agencies use Oracle’s J2EE and Business Integration Features.

Oracle announced that customers throughout the world are leveraging the advanced integration and J2EE capabilities of Oracle Application Server to integrate disparate applications and deploy Java applications. With Oracle Application Server, these companies are optimizing business processes while reducing costs.

Oracle Application Server 10g, the industry’s leading platform for Service-Oriented Architecture and Enterprise Integration provides a comprehensive and integrated Application Platform Suite with solutions for J2EE Applications, Web Services, BPEL-based Business Process Management, Data Integration and Customer Data Hubs, Enterprise Application Integration, and Business-to-Business Integration solutions. These capabilities can also be leveraged in Enterprise Portals, Business Intelligence, and Mobile Applications.

“Service-Oriented Architecture, J2EE and BPEL provide a much simpler, more productive, and 100 percent standards-based infrastructure to integrate enterprise applications, legacy systems, and business processes within organizations,” said Thomas Kurian, senior vice-president, Oracle Server Technologies, Oracle Corp. “Oracle Application Server 10g’s industry leading Enterprise Integration functionality is being rapidly adopted by leading customers around the world to make themselves more efficient, get better information, and leverage their existing technology investments.”

Worldwide Customers Cite Integration and J2EE Capabilities

Customers spanning several regions and industries are touting integration and J2EE capabilities as key benefits of Oracle Application Server.

Ordnance Survey:

An important government agency in the UK, Ordnance Survey produces computer data products and paper maps for business, leisure, administrative and educational use. Independent estimates suggest that Ordnance Survey data now underpins more than #100 billion (about $179 billion U.S.) worth of economic activity in Britain every year. It has two critical Web-based applications, Options and Geospatial Management System, which hold continuously changing information that was previously hosted from a network of survey outlets and local offices. To keep this information current and effective, these two applications were integrated and the vital data was migrated to Oracle Application Server 10g’s single runtime repository.

“Scalability is key to Options. With more and more users coming on board, we need an environment which is robust, easy to scale and most importantly, easy to maintain. Oracle Application Server 10g offers all of these,” said Kishore Chekuri, principal consultant, Ordnance Survey. “It provided the required infrastructure to tightly integrate with our back-end and legacy systems with ease.”

Yarra Valley Water (YVW):

Yarra Valley Water (YVW), the largest Victorian Metropolitan Retail Water Utility in Australia, services 1.6 million people who live and work in the Yarra River catchment area of Melbourne. YVW recently went live with Oracle Application Server to integrate three key systems and introduce enhanced end user reporting. The first phase in the integration rollout integrates the Asset InformationManagement system, the External Service Providers systems and the Corporate Data Warehouse while allowing YVW to reduce integration costs that would otherwise be associated with maintaining many point-to-point integration interfaces. This is the first step in a phased rollout which will ultimately integrate approximately 100 applications at YVW.

The recent implementation also includes a new end-user reporting infrastructure for reporting on billing, water usage, sewer maintenance and water outages. “Oracle Application Server has removed report development bottlenecks, lowered report development costs, and improved reporting performance for end users,” said Simon Soon, CIO, Yarra Valley Water.

Vanguard Car Rental:

Owner of both National and Alamo car rental brands, Vanguard Car Rental operates a fleet of more than 217,000 automobiles in 83 countries making it one of the world’s largest car rental companies. To consolidate its technology systems, Vanguard re-architected its online car reservation Web site using the Oracle Application Server 10g application platform suite including Web Cache and J2EE on Linux. To date, the Alamo Web site is running on this architecture and the National brand Web site will soon follow.

“With Oracle, we have chosen the best available technology for our reservation platform, as well as for our online car rental Web site,” said Tyler Best, CIO, Vanguard Car Rental. “We have seen substantial increases in our Web reservations using Oracle software.”
