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) are 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.

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]
