OFM Summer Camps 2015: Simplify Integration with ICS and SOA Suite CS by Cattle Crew


image At this year’s Oracle Fusion Middleware Summer Camps in Lisbon (see also the post from our colleague Mohammed Esad-Djou) four Opitz consultants were attending the “Hybrid Integration with Integration Cloud Service, SOA Suite Cloud Service and SOA 12c” track. With this post we want to give you a short overview of the topics that have been covered within this week.

Let’s start with a recap of the main topic of our track, the Integration Cloud Service (ICS). With ICS Oracle offers cloud to cloud and cloud to on premise integration flows which can be developed very easily and quickly directly in the browser.  There are even recommendations on the most common data mappings to render the integrations as easy as possible. From our perspective it’s a great tool to quickly deliver Software as a service (SaaS) solutions which are not too complex: at the moment only point to point connections can be implemented. But there is also the option of an additional enrichment call in order to get more details into the data mapping.

More complex integrations in the cloud can be handled using the SOA Suite Cloud Service (SOA Suite CS) which provides its users with the whole set of SOA Suite’s capabilities. Users can either configure their SOA Suite and / or OSB on a single node “environment” or in a clustered mode. SOA Suite CS is not released yet but will be available pretty soon. Especially for smaller companies it might be an interesting approach to directly start working with SOA without having to invest in hardware and licenses first. The browser-based development can start without the need of special tools or elaborated configurations, so the expenditure can be invested in the product itself right from the beginning.
