What is Oracle AIM? or just OUM now....

What is Oracle AIM?

Oracle AIM is Oracle's Application Implementation Methodology and was Oracle's Project Management methodology and implementation strategy. It provides documentation templates that support the tasks that must be performed to assist the implementation participants in running and managing projects successfully.

When I say 'was', AIM has already been retired by Oracle as of Feb 2011. Last version before it was retired was 3.1 and it was called AIM Advantage.
Refer to the link below for published information on AIM retirement.

I fairly remember using some of the templates from 3.0 for few of my projects few years back. These templates simplify a lot of common steps towards any implementation. Only issue was to know different templates available. Google on for Oracle AIM and you may find some links to download these templates separately or together bundled in an exe(265498.EXE).

So does it mean that Oracle does not have implementation methodology now, NO Oracle has moved towards, rather evolved its AIM as OUM (Oracle Unified Method). With lot of acquisitions like SUN, PeopleSoft, Siebel, BEA etc Oracle has evolved towards OUM combining best of the methods of Oracle AIM, PeopleSoft Compass Method, BEA Liquid Enterprise Methodology, Sieble Results Roadmap etc which supports entire Enterprise Life Cycle concentrating not only on products but service and delivery as compared to AIM's product specific templates.

Unfortunately these methods or OUM is available for Oracle Partners. For more information on OUM follow the links below.
