Get Started with Oracle Integration Cloud Services- Introduction (1/4) by Pulkit Mathur


Recently, I got the chance to work with a limited-time trial of Integration Cloud Services provided by Oracle. This is a blog to help you get started on understanding what Integration Cloud Services is about.


Integration Cloud Service and SOA Cloud Service are two cloud integration products that have been launched by Oracle in recent times.

The first question that arises is why two products? The primary difference between the two is the range of functions that can be done. While SOA CS is basically SOA Suite in the cloud, and intended for hardcore developers who are used to working with SOA Suite and want to continue leveraging it’s multiple capabilities like MDS and the ability to achieve very complex integrations; ICS is more of a lightweight service that can be used to achieve simple, lightweight integrations that do not require much complexity. Oracle intends ICS to be used by technically inclined clients without the need for a hardcore developer to come in and save the day!

In my opinion, the main differentiating factor of ICS from other integration cloud products is the rich variety of connectors that they offer (currently 50) that includes connections to other cloud products like RightNow, Eloqua, SalesCloud and various social media like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and a lot more.

Without further ado, let’s get started with how to request a trial of ICS from Oracle:

1)    Go to

2) Click on ‘Try It’ on the top right corner, and scroll down to ‘Integration’ Read the complete article here.
