Long awaited Innovation Pack 2013 has been made available for download on eDelivery.
220.127.116.11 contains quite a bit of goodies on the function side – most of them related with Open UI. The IP2013 also contains the initial release of a new era in Siebel Mobile solution – Siebel’s Disconnected Mobile solution. Leveraging HTML5 ability to store data inside the browser – enabling Siebel to run off-line against a special kind of local database structure. Conceptually there are strong links with Siebel’s prior Handheld technical architecture (with regards how data is being extracted, synchronized) – though Disconnected Mobile offers a much better CX.
Further on the installation/upgrade side of things – IP2013 contains an improved IRM wizard – which is basically run through the Database Configuration Wizard – rather than invoked through Siebel Tools. It contains far less manual steps than the initial IRM implementation delivered with 18.104.22.168. Oracle will soon offer a new Webcast discussing and demonstrating the changes with regards to IRM.
