Some thoughts on Oracle SOA Cloud Service



Its been a few weeks now since Oracle released its new and highly fanfared SOA Cloud Service.

So what does this mean to Oracle SOA practitioners?. We personally think that this is an important moment in time, because the tide has finally led us to the existence of a fully fledged SOA platform offered in the form of an iPaaS, to go with a whole set of cloud services which already include: Integration, Process Automation, Document/Content Management, Mobile, Identity, etc.

There’s little doubt that digital disruption is and will continue fostering increasingly complex and sizable hybrid architectures. Web APIs have become the toast of the town and mobile-first strategies are at a premium for organizations looking to keep competitive and generate new revenue streams.

Besides the obvious use cases such as sandbox/dev environments and occasional production workload shifting, this is where SOA CS should jump in as a powerful, attainable and ready made enabler for companies looking to invest on digital transformation.

We just wrote a fairly detailed article about all this for Oracle OTN, including an excellent contribution from Dutch stalwart Robert van Mölken. Here’s the direct link:

    ICS Cloud service has few similar functionality like SOA CS. I dont know if ICS CS and SOA CS will eventually merge.

    • Hi Hasmin

      SOA Cloud Service is almost full SOA Suite 12c in the Cloud. Which includes functionality like Service Bus, BPEL, b2b, MFT, BAM and more.
      Integration Cloud Service is mainly used to integrate SaaS applications e.g. Eloqua with on-premises like e-Business Suite. ICS includes functionality like Service Bus and BPEL.
      Feel free to try both services via our partner communities for details please see here.
