Today Oracle has released SOA/BPM Suite 12c - see the official Press Release.

Going Beyond the Summary Advisor with TimesTen for Exalytics

I’m over in Seattle at the moment for ODTUG KScope’14, and one of the topics I’m presenting on this week is the use of TimesTen with OBIEE; what I’m going to talk about is taking TimesTen beyond its current use as an in-memory cache for aggregates created by the Summary Advisor, and instead using it to store additional custom aggregates, “hot” data from the source data warehouse, and other custom structures created using SQL*Developer and potentially loaded using Oracle Data Integrator.

Access your MDS-SOA repository from your ADF application

In our Enterprise Landscape the SOA Services and our Canonical Data Model (CDM) live on a different WebLogic Server than our ADF application. But often we want to use these services and CDM in our ADF application. Calling WebServices from an ADF application is not that difficult, however, we often want to manipulate the result that comes from this WebService. In 90 percent of the time, this are little adjustments to the existing CDM that are UI specific.

(and anyone else interested).
