By: Nick Olmsted

TEAM is an enterprise solutions and technology company that collaborates with clients providing products, services, support and training to put unstructured data to work.  TEAM’s expertise lies in Oracle’s WebCenter pillar and more specifically WebCenter Content (UCM), Sites (FatWire), Portal and ADF within the WebCenter family of products. Expanding upon last year’s posts from John Brunswick on 25 Great ADF resources and 25 Excellent WebCenter resources, I have added 15 additional resources that will assist you with getting up to speed on these products and staying on top of the latest news and tips.

WebCenter and ADF Blogs

Oracle A-TEAM

The contributors to this blog are comprised of the WebCenter contingent of Oracle’s Fusion Middleware Architecture Team, otherwise known as the “A-Team”. This particular group of product specialists maintains expert knowledge in the areas of WebCenter Portal, Webcenter Sites (FatWire), Oracle ADF, WebCenter Content (UCM) and Site Studio (WCM), and WebCenter Imaging (IPM). These experts support Oracle’s key middleware accounts worldwide. I am certain that you, the reader, will find ample nuggets of wisdom in this blog to help further your current or future Fusion implementations, but should the information in this publication fall short … you know who to call on.
