Here are the basics:
Version 1.0 includes the following modules:
Human Capital Management
Sales and marketing
Project portfolio management
Notably, there is no manufacturing module. So the focus will be on the service industries.
Also notable: Each of these individual components will be deployable in a SOA architecture as standalone modules attached to an existing non-Fusion application suite, such as eBusiness Suite, Peoplesoft, Siebel, and, as Larry made a point of pointing out, SAP.
The other highlight is the user experience. It’s a pretty good looking system, having seen it under NDA (which has now blissfully been lifted). I’ve seen a fair amount of it, more than Larry will be showing at Open World, unless everyone stays there through dinner. It’s definitely a beautifully designed system.
More to follow.
