API Management in the Year 2026 by Luis Weir

image

We all hear about automation, bots, IoT, self-driving cars, microservices, and cyborgs, but how could this all work without APIs? APIs will continue to play an increasingly important role in making this world a reality. Come hear from our team of futurists about their vision of how the digital landscape will evolve and the role that API Management will have in this brave new world. Presented by Luis Weir, Principal, Oracle Ace Director, Capgemini, at Oracle OpenWorld 2016. Get the presentation here.

Demystifying API Management: Concepts and Demarcations By Sven Bernhardt

image

Digital transformation is on it’s way and the industry is required to adopt the new concepts and techniques, like the Internet of things (IoT), Cloud and Enterprise Mobility. Due to the chances provided by that, new business models arise, which need to be evaluated by company’s to not lose valuable market shares and to stay in touch with the competitors. One topic, which is essential and thus is a key enabler in the context of a successful digital transformation strategy, is API management.

Why that?

To be able to keep up with competitors from a long-time perspective, companies need to focus on their core business. As a result of the progressive digitalization, the value of information will become more and more important for businesses; information will become the new currency! Since companies start focussing on their core business, external services are used in the context of information gather, which are e.g. needed to support business decisions. To guarantee a consistent and secure exchange of data over corporate boundaries, stable and robust APIs are needed. To manage those APIs is one key area of an API management approach.

At this point an experienced developer would say: “Stop! We are using and developing APIs for years now, why should there be any new challenges today?”. Good point! But when digging deeper and asking questions about what managing an API means, the answer is usually closely related to API lifecycle management. It’s an important topic that’s for sure, but API Management in today’s digital business is much more than that and this is what I want to outline within this blog post.

API Management

To make it clear from the beginning: API management is not just introducing a tool respectively a piece of software. It is also not just versioning and documentation of an API. API Management is a complex discipline, which needs a proper, long-term strategic planning. Oracle ACE Director Luis Weir gives a very good definition, on what API management really is about: Read the complete article here.

SOA Cloud – Create Oracle Storage Cloud Service Container by Vivek Garg

image

In this post, I will show how you can create container for Oracle Storage Cloud Service.Oracle Storage Cloud Service container is required before we proceed further with creation of Oracle Database Cloud Service and SOA Cloud Service. You will not be able to configure SOA Cloud service until and unless we create this container.

Before you proceed to this post, you need to install OpenStack client. You can refer this post to see how to install it.

Follow below steps to create the Oracle Storage Service Container.

Step 1:Replication Policy: Open your service dashboard and go to Oracle Storage Cloud Service. By default replication policy is not set so you need to set it first. To set it click on “Set Replication Policy” option.

Choose any one replication policy, for this post, we have selected em2. Read the complete article here.

Integration Cloud Service Use Case: Closed Loop Order Management Sven Bernhardt, Alexander Däubler, and Cornelia Spanner

imageIntroduction

Integrating distributed systems with each other has been a challenge for many years. In the context of digital transformation, companies are using more and more Software as a Service (SaaS) applications to address standard processes, so that they can focus on improving and evolving the core business. This means even more complexity in integration, since cloud and on-premise systems need to be integrated.

There are three typical integration scenarios:

  1. On-premise to on-premise: Integration is done on-premise, based on, for example, Oracle SOA Suite
  2. On-premise to cloud: Integration is done in the cloud (e.g., using ICS) or on an on-premise integration platform
  3. Cloud to cloud: Integration is done in the cloud

The arising integration challenges can be addressed by either hybrid cloud integration or a full Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) approach, depending on a company’s center of gravity:

A hybrid approach (left) should be chosen if both cloud and on-premise applications must be integrated.

In a full iPaaS scenario (right), most of the integrations need to be done between cloud-based applications, because the center of gravity has moved to the cloud. The need for integrations with on-premise applications is low, because there are usually only a few legacy applications still hosted on-premise.

Oracle Integration Cloud Service (ICS) is a complete and strategic cloud-based integration platform that can be used in the context of a hybrid approach as well as when taking a full iPaaS approach. Using ICS, the definition of integrations comes to a new level. Pre-built integrations available through Oracle Cloud Marketplace that implement common integration scenarios can be used as a basis for new integrations and adapted to specific user needs. For data mappings, recommendations are shown based on knowledge derived from the same mappings done by other users. In conjunction with a very clearly structured and intuitive UI, which also enables non-technical users to define integrations between systems and applications, new integrations can be created rapidly and efficiently.

One key differentiator of Oracle ICS with respect to its competitors is that cloud-to-on-premise integrations are done using a lightweight agent concept. The so-called “connectivity agent” has to be hosted and deployed on premise, ensuring communication between ICS and the on-premise applications, without the need to open firewall ports.
