5.0 out of 5 stars Fusion Applications is a bigger change than you realize. 16 Dec. 2011
By Brian R. Hitchcock - Published on
Fusion Applications is a bigger change than you realize. It's a bigger change than I realized.
If I had seen this book on the shelf I would have flipped through it and dismissed it. It looks
like a lot of descriptions of acronyms made up of other acronyms -- recursive acronyms. But
I did read it, and I'm glad I did. The move to Fusion Applications requires moving to open
standards and that requires learning about all those acronyms.
I need to be prepared to support Fusion Applications. I found many resources and among
them were three books from Oracle Press. This is one of them, along with WebLogic Server
11g Administration Handbook and Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Architecture and
Management. Since I have reviewed other Oracle Press books, they sent me copies of each
to read and review.
Reading this book really helped me understand just how big a change the move to Fusion
Apps will be. The description of the history of Oracle Applications, both those developed
by Oracle and those acquired by Oracle, is the best I've ever seen. It provides the context
I've been looking for to really understand why this change is happening and why it has to
be such a big change.
I understand that many Oracle professionals that currently support Oracle Enterprise Suite
and other products in what is now called Oracle Applications Unlimited will be looking for
resources that show them the technical details of implementing and supporting Fusion
Applications. This book will not appear to be relevant since it doesn't attempt to address
those issues. However, Fusion Applications is not just Applications Unlimited with some
new stuff bolted on the side. It is a complete overhaul and integration of all the various
applications products with some new stuff mixed in. Wrapping your head around all this
requires a high-level review and that is what this book provides.
Unlike most books I've reviewed, this one has some of the best information in the introduction.
Don't skip it. In the first few pages we find - "The structure of this book is intended to help you
first build a basic understanding of Fusion Applications..." Indeed, and you need this high-level
overview to get that basic understanding. From "A Brief History" onward, this `introduction'
helped me the most. It gave me the context I was looking for, explaining how the evolution of
applications, access and user experience all led to Fusion Applications.
Fusion Applications is a big change. This means that persons with experience in the current
Oracle applications offerings will need to embrace change. Most people will be new to Fusion
Applications so this is also a great time to get started. This book is a good way to get exposed
to just how much is new and different. You won't learn how to install Fusion Applications,
but, whether you accept it or not, you really do need to become comfortable with all the new
ideas, acronyms and processes that make up Fusion Applications. This book is a very high-level
view of what will be involved in managing Fusion Applications. I think everyone involved would
benefit from reading this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ! for Fusion Implementers 7 July 2011
By ruchi - Published on
Fusion Applications are here already and I was trying to find some text to go along with the limited training out there for Implementers and technology Managers - I am impressed by how the author has lifted the veil surrounding the much awaited Fusion applications and the technology platform it is built on. Would serve as a great reference for any Implementation or before you get to the product training or documentation. Excellent and easy read!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Written by a Fusion Guru pitched at just the right level 30 Nov. 2011
By Dash - Published on
I now have a copy of this book having seen it promoted at Oracle Open World in San Francisco this year and it has become a foundation for my undertstanding of Fusion. The author has pitched this just right, logical divisions, easy starts and then deeper dives to all the mysterious areas of a Fusion installation and use.
I originate from the JD Edwards stable and despite much retraining into the Fusion Middleware, I needed this book to fully understand the transition and feel happy with the operational aspects of Fusion Applications. The Software is now General Availability and I would endorse this book for anyone converting from other products as well as those coming from EBS, as everyone needs to understand the 'delta' involved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Managing Oracle Fusion Applications 10 Oct. 2011
By Andy S - Published on
This book is a great source of information for anyone who is just starting with Fusion applications. It introduces the concepts of an Enterprise Application and then provides an accurate description of the areas that are important.
It provides the background information about Fusion applications which is a great for IT strategists,System analysts,Implementation Consultants or Software Developers. The book provides hints,tips and tools from a technical and functional perspective. In a day to day scenario it provides a practical reference for users aswell as a training resource. Richard is a great author and lays out the information in a easily readable format with good illustrations.

3.0 out of 5 stars good value book, more interesting than reading Oracle's documentation website 24 Nov. 2012
By Mexican pundit - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
good book to understand how Fusion apps works at a high level. essential reading for users of JD Edwards, Peoplesoft or Oracle eBusiness suite to understand what lies ahead when Oracle reduces investment in these products over the next twenty years and puts more resources into Fuaion apps.

this book is entertaining to read, compared to other ERP books and gives you a good overview of how far Fusion Apps has come. because it is published by Oracle, it does at times apear to be biased and not mention any weaknesses of the software architecture. but, in the absense of any other books out there, this book contains invaluable knowledge for those wanting to jump of the Fusion Apps bandwagon early.
