Oracle has unveiled its Oracle Fusion Applications line up, which it says mark the next generation of business applications.

The new application range has been designed to be 100% open standards-based, so that customers are able to use existing applications alongside the new Fusion applications, and applications are also completely modular, so that companies can deploy individual modules, a product family or the complete suite as necessary, without the need for a large scale deployment.

The application range includes over 100 modules in seven different product families, including financial management, procurement and sourcing, project and portfolio management, human capital management, CRM, supply chain management and governance, risk and compliance.

The Fusion portfolio has been built from the ground up, based on feedback and best practices from customers, and takes a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) approach, which allows for greater flexibility to change, and reduces long and short term costs. The new applications also have a simplified configuration and a common data model enable a change-once-change everywhere approach to business-accelerating the pace of innovation and reducing the obstacles and delays.

Fusion also features a role-based user experience, with embedded business intelligence, exception-based alerts and collaboration capability delivered together in the context of the work being performed.

The applications are also Software as a Service ready, and can be deployed in a range of models, from on premise, to private clouds, public clouds, and business process outsourcing or hybrid combinations of these.

"Oracle Fusion Applications bring a new era of application software and technology investments going forward," said Steve Miranda, SVP of Oracle Application Development. "To set a new standard, we listened and gathered the best practices from thousands of customers to deliver the first 100 percent open and standards-based business applications. Beginning today, Oracle Fusion Applications define how organizations innovate, work and adopt technology."
