About the Author

Jason Williamson has over 17 years of experience in technology and business execution, from software development, product marketing, and management, to entrepreneurial enterprises. During his tenure with Oracle, he has been responsible for helping to develop and implement Oracle's strategy around legacy and business systems transformation. As an expert in modernization, Jason has worked with key Oracle customers around the world particularly in Financial Services, the Public Sector, and Healthcare to build and implement strategic transformation projects, which have lead to significant increase in revenue or cost reduction for Oracle's clients. Jason's responsibilities have also included helping to execute the modernization program within EMEA and Latin America. He now serves as a special advisor to Oracle's premier customers in the financial services industry. Prior to joining Oracle, Jason has a diverse background in both technology and business leadership. He also served as founder and CTO for the construction industry's first SaaS/CRM offering. He led BuildLinks from concept to a multi-million dollar company and forged key financial and business partnerships with Sprint/Nextel and Intuit. This venture opened the door for him to establish a non-profit dedication to entrepreneurial and technology education in developing nations, which enabled the establishment of multiple self-sustaining companies in Latin America. Outside of his entrepreneurial efforts, he has served in key positions within fortune 500 professional service and financial services firms. Jason's background includes experience in Financial Services, Construction, Public Sector, Defense, and Healthcare. He also served his country in the United States Marine Corps. Jason spends his free time with his wife Susan and four children. He serves as a coach for youth sports and is involved in advocacy, fundraising, and speaking for Spina Bifida awareness. Tom Laszewski has over 20 years of experience in databases, middleware, software development, management, and building strong technical partnerships. He is currently the Cloud Migration Director in Oracle's Server Technology organization. He established the initial business and technical relationships with Oracle's migration SIS and tools partners. His main responsibility is successful completion of migration projects initiated through the Oracle partner ecosystem and Oracle Sales. These migration projects involve mainframe service enablement and integration, mainframe re-host and re-architecture, and Sybase, DB2, SQL Server, Informix database migrations, and migrations to the Oracle Cloud product offerings. Tom works on a daily basis with TCS, Infosys, and niche migration systems integrators, customer technical architectures, CTOs and CIOs, and Oracle account managers to ensure the success of migration projects. Most recently, Tom is spending a significant amount of his time enabling Cloud computing service providers on the Oracle software and hardware stack. This involves architecting future-proof cloud infrastructure solutions utilizing Oracle Exadata, Oracle Exalogic, Oracle Virtual Server, Sun Blade Servers, Oracle Database, Oracle Fusion Middleware, and Oracle Enterprise Linux. Before Oracle, Tom held technical and project management positions at Sybase and EDS. He has provided strategic and technical advice to several start-up companies in the Database, Blade, XML, and storage areas. Tom holds a Master of Science in Computer Information Systems from Boston University.

Format: Paperback
Most books from PackT are full of samples to guide developers on how to develop an application. This is usually done when the book is about a programming language or on how to improve the application. But in this case, it takes more than just sample codes to show developers and project managers how to implement improvement of Oracle through SOA.

In this book, developers would not only read about the coding tips on how to improve Oracle but would also encounter a lot of case studies. These case studies are not only based on the fact that they need to improve their Oracle platform. The case studies also discuss the different challenges developers would be facing when improving Oracle and the answer that was implemented through SOA. Developers might even find a familiar situation and use the same solution to that problem.

As the book continues to explain the implementation of Oracle improvement through SOA, more complex samples and case studies are presented. Ultimately, the book is a collection of samples and case studies as it shows the real situations in Oracle improvement and on how to properly tackle the most difficult tasks.

The book also touches a little bit into the future. There are bold predictions on how SOA and Oracle will improve and what developers have to do. This book will not only let you learn about the challenges of today but also anticipate the problems of the future. As already indicated, Oracle and SOA never stays the same. Updates will always be there and would always change the outlook of developers on how to improve the system.

The readers of this book are required to be familiar with the process of Oracle as well as the standard practices of SOA.
