Oracle co-president Charles Phillips is expected to unveil Project X, a composite applications strategy, in a few hours at the Oracle Applications Users Group conference.
eWeek's Renee Boucher Ferguson reported late last week that Project X is an applications integration framework that will allow customers to pull together functionality from various Oracle apps. In other words, Project X offers a way to create a greatest hits album of Oracle apps by business process, say human resources or financial management.
Boucher Ferguson reports:
While the technical details and scope of processes defined in the integration framework are unclear, the general idea is that Oracle, of Redwood Shores, Calif., will develop its own composite applications as well as provide users with the services necessary to stitch together their own composites, also based on a process.
In the end, Project X may result in build-your-own Fusion applications. We're scheduled for a briefing with Oracle and will update accordingly.
