When Oracle acquired PeopleSoft last year, perhaps the most striking announcement is the launching of Project Fusion — aiming to bring together the best of Oracle, PeopleSoft and JD Edwards into a single product! My first impression is one of skepticism. In fact, when SAP slams the endeavor as Project Confusion, I just casually nod in agreement. What compounds the confusion for me further is the existence of other projects also dubbed as Fusion but which sounds to be in much mature states.
In my exploring of podcasts recently, I stumbled across the Oracle Technology Network’s Techcast. There I found the episode titled Understanding Oracle Fusion Architecture and Fusion Middleware. This episode is already a few months old, taken at the Oracle OpenWorld’s Applications day, though I still recommend it to anyone looking a understand Fusion a little better.
