2015 innovation pack we're also simplifying the way we version the Siebel products moving from the four to five part version naming system to a simple two part naming system this will eliminate the differences between the 8.11 and 8.2 to do code lines that is we will no longer be releasing an 81 1 15 and 8.2 2.15 version but rather a single 15.0 release which also corresponds to the current year ie 2015 this will make it easier for customers to differentiate between releases when reporting bugs patch requests or simply talking about their implementation no longer will a customer or technical support be confused between something like 8 1.1.11 patched at 14 and 8.1 1.14 so with this release 8.1 dot 1.15 is simply being referred to as $15 enhancements to the upgrade an increment or possibly merged process in this release includes a great path to support directly or gradings innovation pack 2015 from existing Siebel versions including the ability to upgrade from 2014 to 2015 also added is help content in the database server configuration wizard screens to help customers understand the purpose of each screen it is also now possible to leverage the upgrade ancestor property during our own execution during the repository merge the descendant isn't upgraded in the same way as the upgrade ancestor in order to support the new web-based Siebel Composer mode which is available in this release as a developer preview we are providing a web template migration utility to migrate the data in web template files into the seed or metadata tables key enhancements have also been made in this release to simplify deployment these include LDAP client installation as part of an integrated component the Siebel installer for security TLS and sha-2 and free support have also been added throughout the application this table shows the upgrade path to get to the new 15 dotto release for those customers coming from a horizontal or sta versions of the product who are still using 7.5 dot 3 or 7.7 dot 2 it will first be necessary to upgrade to 8.1 dot 1s a release before upgrading to the new 15 over lease as shown in the first row at the table the customers who are on an SI a version of 7.5 of 3 or 7.7 dot 2 or any version of 7.8 2 or 800 or on the SE a version of 8.1 dot 1 up to 8.1 dot 7 customers will be able to upgrade directly to 15 dot Oh finally for those customers who are already on an industry or si a version of Siebel a Towanda X customers can move to 15.0 by simply applying the 15 dot o patch and running the incremental repository mode process rather than having to execute an entire upgrades data quality management is an integral process if in any application master data management and data governance provides not just data quality tools and process management but seeks to deliberate on behalf of an entire application ecosystem across the integrated enterprise embedded edq access in UCM includes increased business agility for a single dedicated screen in UCM directly to ebq and faster access and configuration of related data quality balls and processes by rendering edq views and functions directly from UCM this delivers a true single MDM application the new list import feature is an enhancement of the existing contact import functionality that allows customers to import greater volumes of contact records from external sources into Siebel Marketing in a significantly shorter amount of time using PL sequel the ability to import the right contacts into the database quickly to be used for marketing campaigns is essential to execute the campaigns quickly and efficiently the new PL sequel based contact import process brings significant performance improvements into the contact process Oracle places high focus on customer ability to flexibly integrate Siebel products into the enterprise this is achieved not only therefore support of adopted open standards but also by certifying on the latest platforms the following stiff occasion updates are included in this release Microsoft Windows Server 2012 r2 Microsoft sequel Server 2012 and IBM db2 Oracle Java 8 runtime support and also Oracle Java 8 is also supported for the open UI client for the latest features and security this is one of the most asked for features of Siebel business agility and Siebel composes introduced in a developer preview mode for this release elements of Siebel Composer we have available for developers to try out the goal is to eradicate both web templates from the SRF these will be metadata driven and stored in the database this is the first step towards our delivery of moving Siebel tools into the web and providing a web based IDE her configuration changes drag and drop of web templates from tools and allowing for multi-user development environments using workspaces to allow for parallel development between teams server-side responsive web design enhancements are included with the Siebel composer and will be fully available in the final release the target for server-side responsive web design and the final version of Siebel Composer is innovation pack 2016 in this release we are including super composer in a developer preview mode the first step to runtime configuration requires a web-based configuration tool Siebel tools is very powerful and has a lot of functionality rebuilding all of that in a redesigned modern web-based development tool is complex and long process and while that process has started already we need something in the interim to allow us to exercise the capabilities provided by in-memory srf and metadata based web templates this is simply a like-for-like exposure of Siebel tools their list applets an open UI based application this does not address usability or simplicity requirements for Siebel composer that will be included final release Siebel composure does not support all of the configuration capabilities that Siebel tools provides today as you can see here in this slide the innovation pack 2015 version of Siebel Composer does not support multi-user development this means that the application does not have the capabilities to isolate changes by developer all changes made for the super composer are global so multiple users working on the same server or we're modifying the same master data again we are excited to introduce Siebel composer in developer preview mode this is our first step to online Siebel configuration for all Siebel CRM information the following destination should be our first point of call the Siebel portal on Oracle comm is being updated with fresh
