Oracle Integration Platform Portfolio – on premises and primarily in the cloud by Lucas Jellema



One of the very first capabilities Oracle ever introduced in its PaaS portfolio was integration. It was clear from the onset of any talk about clouds that facilities to do integration between cloud and on premises as well as between various clouds [from different vendors]would be essential. With its SOA Suite, Oracle had a very strong on premises offering for integration, and it used this foundation for its first steps on the cloud integration path.

The initial approach from Oracle on integration in the cloud was two-fold:

  • SOA Suite Cloud Service offered the originally on premises products SOA Suite 12c along with API Manager, B2B and MFT (Managed File Transfer) running on DBaaS and a WebLogic domain provisioned automatically
  • ICS (Integration Cloud Service) provided a citizen developer’s user experience for declaratively creating SaaS to SaaS integration flows, using a quickly expanding portfolio of pre-built cloud adapters; ICS made use of the SOA Suite SB engine under the covers

Additionally, a roadmap was outlined for the continued development of the on premises SOA Suite product that was to mimicked by the SOA Suite CS.

This year, the strategy around integration has somewhat changed, in several ways, visualized in this figure: Read the complete article here.
