This article is about applications side of Oracle Fusion which consists of two parts - Oracle Fusion Applications and Oracle Fusion Middleware, both running on an open architecture ecosystem - Oracle Fusion Architecture. For the fusion middleware technology, see Oracle Fusion Middleware. For the open architecture ecosystem, see Oracle Fusion Architecture.

Oracle Fusion Applications (OFA) is a suite of enterprise resource planning 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; both layers implement the Oracle Fusion Architecture, which leverages the capabilities of service-oriented architecture.[5][6]

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