SOA Suite Review The platform comes with a standalone, first-class Service Bus component that can be used for service virtualization by Sven Bernhardt



Valuable Features:

A definitive differentiator is the very good integration capability the platform provides: It has a broad spectrum of connectivity adapters to integrate with third party enterprise information systems, like SAP, Siebel, and JD Edwards, and also cloud solutions like Salesforce.

In addition, the platform comes with a standalone, first-class Service Bus component that can be used for service virtualization. This enables customers to create and edit new integrations efficiently and helps to adopt new trends or concepts, like cloud, very fast.

Aside from that, the platform also addresses business needs (process automation with BPEL), allows for further transparency for business transactions (audit trails, Business Activity Monitoring) and provides rich capabilities in the direction of fault handling and resiliency.

Improvements to My Organization:

The product allows you to visualize how a company is working currently by providing rich possibilities for analyses such as the audit trails and real-time integration and business insights, and therefore shows where improvements might be valuable. This becomes more and more important for companies to differentiate themselves from competitors.

Room for Improvement:

The Integrated Development Environment (IDE), which is JDeveloper in this case. Also, the integrated development environment could be better in some points such as the stability and the comprehensibility of errors.

Use of Solution:

I’ve used it for over eight years in different projects, in different industrial sectors, and with different project focuses, ranging from pure integration scenarios to process automation and optimization projects. Read the complete article here.
