Estafet Opinion on the new Integration Cloud Service from Oracle


clip_image001Integration Expert Phil McLaughlin takes a look at the new cloud solution from Oracle.

Last week Oracle announced its long awaited iPaaS Integration Cloud Service (ICS) and Process Cloud Service (PCS). As integration experts, Estafet looked at these exciting new products and assessed how they will affect the integration market.

The iPaaS market has been dominated by providers such as Dell Boomi, Snaplogic and Mulesoft all taking slightly different approaches towards integrating SaaS applications in the cloud. Oracle has now entered this market providing a comprehensive set of solutions of its own.  In this blog we examine Integration Cloud service (ICS), in later blogs we will look at some of the others.

Many companies have one or two SaaS applications that require linking either to each other, or to existing service bus-based backend systems, and ICS is ideal for this. The Oracle SaaS endpoints that belong to the company are made available in the development environment, meaning the development of the integrations are quick and simple.
