Using FlexDeploy with Oracle Integration Cloud A Customer Success Story by Maxx Williams


After an initial FlexDeploy implementation for E-Business Suite, Oracle SOA Suite, and Enterprise Data Warehouse, one FlexDeploy customer quickly expanded usage across their enterprise. The team’s Applications Manager explained “we saw so much benefit and such immediate gains that we said if we’re going to implement new software, can it work with FlexDeploy? And if it can’t, maybe we don’t want to do it.”

Adopting Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC)

The team is forward-thinking and innovative, open to incorporating and adopting emerging technologies, processes, and tooling. The organization and technology footprint were growing rapidly, and they needed a more effective and scalable approach for application integration. The work building, managing, and maintaining the existing solution was keeping things steady, but it was not furthering business initiatives at the required rate and pace.

As the team started investigating options, OIC quickly emerged as the leader. They already had a hybrid on-prem/multi-cloud strategy. OIC naturally fit in as a PaaS Service ready to communicate with systems important to them such as ADP, Oracle EBS, and Salesforce.

Around the same time FlexDeploy was being implemented, the team began their work with OIC. They quickly realized they could make a lot of improvements in their process by implementing FlexDeploy’s deployment procedures. Without FlexDeploy (or another deployment tool), OIC users must manually manage changes, export and copy files to local machines, and maintain credentials in multiple places. Additionally, there’s little control over who has access to systems; anyone with admin privileges could massage any of these tasks. After a month of having a production OIC instance, the team knew it was time to bring in FlexDeploy.

As the Applications Manager shared “seeing the gaps after the first OIC deployment without FlexDeploy started raising the little red flags that we had addressed with FlexDeploy in our other systems. Those red flags were a clear sign we had to make the change.” Read the complete article here.
