Oracle Fusion Applications (OFA) is a portfolio of next generation suite of software applications from Oracle Corporation. It is distributed across various product families; including financial management, human capital management, customer relationship management, supply chain management, procurement, governance, and project portfolio management.

Oracle Fusion Applications were announced shortly after Oracle's US$18 billion acquisition spree of PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, and Siebel Systems in 2005.[1][2]

Oracle Fusion Applications were envisioned and pitched as an Enterprise resource planning suite - a combination of features and functionalities taken from Oracle E-Business Suite, JD Edwards, PeopleSoft and Siebel product lines.[3][4] The suite is built on top of the Oracle Fusion Middleware technology stack which leverages the Service-oriented architecture capabilities of Oracle Fusion Architecture.[5][6]

Oracle Fusion is an ERP software which offers complete Business solutions for all the wings of Enterprise. Oracle has also come up with Cloud solutions under Fusion Apps.

It was finally launched in September 2010 and released one year later at OpenWorld 2011.[3][4]
