Introduction to Oracle Fusion Applications
Oracle Fusion Applications is the next generation enterprise application suite from Oracle Corporation. It is not a new version or a release of Oracle’s existing ERP products like E-Business Suite (EBS), PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, or Siebel. It’s an entirely new suite of applications built from the ground up using open standards encompassing a large number of Oracle components as well as many third-party open source products. Oracle started developing Oracle Fusion Applications in early 2005 and the first release was generally available in late 2011. The adoption of Oracle Fusion Applications is steadily increasing, especially with recent releases. The current release as of the writing of this book is 11.1.9 (Oracle Fusion Applications 11g, Release 9).
