Comparing Oracle ICS connectors with Workday, Mule, Boomi and Azure by Luis Weir

image

As SaaS adoption continue to increase in organisations of any size, it’s only expected that different cloud vendors will stretch their cloud capabilities to try and increasing their SaaS/PaaS/IaaS footprints. This is particularly true for iPaaS related capabilities, as it seems that every cloud vendor has its own related offering and they push it really hard even if it doesn’t really satisfy the majority of integration needs.
The challenge is though, that organisations that don’t carefully elaborate a cloud integration strategy and think this through, will almost certainly end up implementing point solutions using whichever iPaaS capability is available for the individual project.  This not only results in vendor lock-in but also increases the complexity and cost of integration.

To avoid this, first step is to of course create a well thought cloud integration strategy however with a clear objective in mind. This should be delivering a platform capable of supporting all integration needs (cloud-to-cloud, cloud-to-on-premise) in a seamless and consistent fashion without redundant infrastructures and capabilities. The concept should be something like this:

However the devil is in the detail, or so it goes.
One of the key reason vendor lock-in occurs is simply because of misinformation. From my point of view, SaaS integration is all about connectivity. So without properly understanding 1) what are the connectivity requirements and 2) what platform best fits these connectivity needs in the short and long term, there is high probability that a solution will not be the right one (may be it will solve the short-term needs, but in the long-run it will probably add more complexity, cost hence risk).

Cloud Challenge by Chris Murphy

image

Five projects show the many use cases for cloud platforms.

For Debra Lilley, the time feels right to stop thinking about building something with a cloud development platform, and start doing it. So what else to do but sign up for an event challenging teams to build a cloud-based project in a single day?

“The best way to learn something is to dig in and have a go,” says Lilley, an Oracle ACE Director and vice president at systems integration firm Certus Solutions.

That attitude explains why Lilley joined not one but two teams taking part in the OTN Developer Cloud Challenge, held outside of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, in early June 2016, as part of the AMIS Oracle Conference in the Netherlands. One of Lilley’s teams used Oracle Cloud Platform tools to craft an app for sharing flight and lodging details with your travel companions to an event such as this cloud challenge. The other worked on refining an extension to Oracle Human Capital Management Cloud for managing the HR policy for bringing complaints against senior staffers.

Events such as the Amsterdam cloud challenge help systems integrators get hands-on with the tools and projects they’re increasingly going to use in their work with customers. Here are five projects from the challenge, with insights from the Oracle ACE Directors leading the projects on what they’re learning about cloud platforms.

Continuous Innovation

Project: A mobile app that lets you share travel plans with colleagues, so you can book at the same hotel or share a cab if you’re attending the same conference. Read the complete article here.

Startups: Your Oracle PaaS4SaaS Cloud Pivot Enabler is Here By Ultan O’Broin

image

Oracle Applications User Experience Senior Director Ultan O’Broin (@ultan) keeps his finger on the pulse of the startup scene in EMEA with an eye to enabling that community with the OAUX outreach machine. Here he talks about user experience (UX) enablement that’s on offer to startups to accelerate their SaaS and PaaS opportunities.

When Life Gives You Lemons, Pivot

Pivoting: That realization that a permanent income is preferable to remaining just a fascination.

After over two decades of experience in the tech industry, half of it in the Valley, I still find it hard to predict what’s going to go down on any given day. Even if things go slightly pear-shaped, I rarely don’t have a #lovemyjob day. Having a sense of humor always helps . . . .

Dogpatch Labs tech co-working space, Dublin. As good a community of happening startups as anywhere in Silicon Valley (Image: Ultan O’Broin).

This is probably why HBO’s Silicon Valley is favorite viewing of mine. I can relate to it: Not only does it resonate with my experience, it goes past the tech jargon and cuts close to the bone with those #ouch moments.

In the first season of Silicon Valley, there’s the famous TechCrunch Disrupt scene where Pied Piper‘s business development head Jared Dunn responds to a "life giving you lemons" moment by advising the crew that their startup needs to “pivot” and pitch their middle-out compression solution in a different direction. Pivoting is about being adaptable and finding a good fit with the market. Read the complete article here.

SaaS with Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service – Simplified PaaS for SaaS by Shay Shmeltzer

image

One of the focus area for us when developing the new Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service (ABCS) was to create a tool that would make it very simple to enrich Oracle SaaS applications.

This integration is a key part of Oracle’s PaaS for SaaS offering – where we have unique capabilities in our Platform as a Service offering for our Software as a Service customers.

With ABCS it is very easy to pick up objects from Oracle SaaS (through the built in service catalog) and then design new web and mobile interfaces that show data from those.

In addition you can then add your own custom fields and related objects with additional data you want to track.

Once your application is complete – you can then either run it as a stand-alone app, or embed it into an Oracle SaaS interface.

I wrote two blogs and recorded two videos that show you the basics. Read the complete article here.

Process Cloud Service Connectors (Part 1 of 2): Web Service Connector by Antonis Antoniou

image

Oracle Process Cloud Service applications can communicate and exchange data with external applications that are exposed as either REST or Web Services.
In this first part of a two part series on connectors we will explore the Web Service Connector in Oracle Process Cloud Service to exchange data with an external application using the SOAP protocol.
To create a Web Service (SOAP) connection in Oracle Process Cloud Service, you need the following information:

  • WSDL file (upload from file or remove via URL)
  • The WSDL file should include a port type and a callback port type
  • If the service you are trying to invoke is secure, then you will need the username and password required to access the service

So let’s see how you can create a Web Service Connector in Oracle Process Cloud Service. The scenario will be quite simple.

We will have a process that will invoke a publicly available web service, GeoIPService to lookup countries by IP address. The process will start with a form pattern, where the user will type in the IP address. The process will then invoke the GeoIPService, passing it the IP address typed in by the user and using a second human task, it will display the country where that IP address is.

First thing that we will do is to create a new application in Oracle Process Cloud Service. I’ve named it "Web Service Connector Demo App" and created a new space (aantoniou) to file this new application under. Read the complete article here.

PCS 17.1.3 leveraging ICS by Niall Commiskey

image

Now we have even tighter integration between PCS and ICS. Together they provide us with an unbeatable process and integration platform.
Let’s start with a simple example –
Here is my ICS process – all it does is create an organization in Service Cloud.

Now to PCS – I can "register" my ICS environment in Workspace (Administration – Services).

Now to my process – this is a simple order process. The order comes from an organization.
A confirmation email is sent to the Org email address, once the order has been approved. Read the complete article here.
