Oracle Integration Cloud pricing explained – OCI vs Classic by Robert van Molken

imageLast week at AMIS we had the task of estimating costs of a proposed iPaaS solution for one of our customers that runs on a fully managed cloud. As AMIS is mainly an Oracle partner we looked at how competitive we could make the pricing of the solution using Oracle Cloud compared to other vendors. In this blog I will not go into much details of this vendor compare matrix, as I want to focus on the pricing of Oracle and how it has changed over time. Bottom-line: for our use-case I was positively surprised by the outcome.

Let’s start by looking at the pricing of Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC), the licensing options and estimation rules belonging to each options. Currently the pricing page lists two main service types; Oracle Integration and Integration Classic. The difference between the two is that classic uses the OCPU metric, whereas the updated pricing uses a messages/hour metric. Both options are still available for you to purchase. For each service type you can choose between standard and enterprise package and two payments methods, pay-as-you-go and monthly flex. Optionally you can bring your own (existing on-premises) license to get some mayor price cuts. In the next paragraphs I will go over the differences in more details. Read the complete article here.

Oracle Integration – Get Started free hands-on training labs from Oracle OpenWorld

image

In these hands-on labs, you’ll be working with two of the key capabilities of Oracle Integration; application integration and process automation.

The labs are broken into two parts. Part one will cover application integration where you’ll create an integration to update subscription usage data in Oracle Engagement Cloud. Part two will cover process automation where you’ll create a Process App to automate the self service collection of usage data and update that subscription usage data in Oracle Engagement Cloud Subscription Management. While you will benefit from completing both labs in order, the labs are designed such that you can work on them independently.

The business scenario is to create a self-service Subscription Management application that allows subscribers of a good or service to self report subscription usage. Once subscription usage data is reported, the application will automate the review and approval of that data, and if approved, automate updating Oracle Engagement Cloud Subscription Management with the usage data. This scenario represents a common business process where requests are made, reviewed, approved, and result in updates to an enterprise application. Digitizing and automating these types of business process can yield significant benefits.

Labs

Access to Oracle Integration is secured through Oracle Identity Cloud Service. Users may be granted access to all the Oracle Integration environments in a cloud tenancy, or they may be restricted to specific environments. They may be assigned different roles in each environment.

  1. Integration Lab
  2. Process Lab

· Five Highlights from Larry Ellison at Oracle OpenWorld The top takeaway from Oracle Chairman and CTO Larry Ellison’s keynotes and talks? People who insist that technology will eliminate everyone’s job are missing the point. “Fundamentally, the world we live in is changing,” he said. “Life is going to be safer. Data is going to be safer. We’re going to do less tedious work and more interesting work, because a lot of the routine tasks are going to be automated away.” Four more highlights

Listen in as the panel discusses the state of integration.

· Oracle Expands Its ‘Integrated Cloud’ “Your Oracle workloads are the crown jewel of the enterprise, and we know that,” Oracle CEO Safra Catz said during her keynote on September 17 at Oracle OpenWorld. The growing value of that data helps explain why Oracle is so focused on creating an integrated cloud, explained Oracle product leaders during the keynote, demonstrating their strategies, including horizontal integrations between Oracle’s cloud and two new Oracle partners, VMware and Microsoft.

Jarvis Pizzeria Serves cookies pizza by Marcel van de Glind

This blog is a summary of the original blog as described on the blog of my Jarvis colleague RickWe proudly present a new flavor in our assortment: Cookies Pizza. Using cookies to save user preferences / user input from the UI..

Rick’s post will be looking into two examples of using cookies when baking pizza. The first is a hard save of information through a save and get button of a webpage, the second is on the fly saving of information on a webpage (saving fields locally in cookies so a user can leave and re-enter a page without losing data). This post will also include dynamically showing and hiding table columns, as well as using the afterNavigate event. Read the complete article here.

The Process Group Pattern by Jan Kettenis

image

This article describes the Process Group Pattern, which can be used to correlate process or integration instances that all support the same business process. It is also one of patterns supporting the Microprocess Architecture.

Updated on 2019-09-16 to include screenshot of processes in Workspace.

For a somewhat more complex process, and especially when applying the MicroprocessArchitecture, you may have more than one process and probably several integration applications that make up the implementation of one single business process. This implies that when executing a business process there will be 2 or more instances of the process, and integration applications. Now how can a business user or Applications Administrator correlate all these instances to monitor the flow of the business process?

The on-premise Oracle BPM Suite (and SOA Suite) has the concept of "flowId" which is an id that is generated by the BPM engine at the start of the first instance and then "passed on" from one instance to the other. Using Enterprise Manager, by means of the flowId one can easily follow how one process or integration calls the other, and by putting it in the process or integration instance title, also in the Workspace. The Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) does not have the concept of flowId, as least not yet. Now what to do? Here comes the Process Group Instance to the rescue. Read the complete article here.

Jarvis Pizzeria blog refresh part 3 of 3 by Marcel van de Glind

imageIn this blog I do a quick refresh of the third (and last) batch of 13 Jarvis Pizzeria blog posts (note: the different headers in this blog contain a link to the actual blog).

27. Jarvis Pizzeria in Case Management Style

The core of this post concerns the release of Oracle Integration Cloud, the bundling of Process Cloud Service (PCS), Integration Cloud Service (ICS) and Visual Builder Cloud Service (VBCS). and the addition of Dynamic Processes to PCS.

Recently Rick Kelder, my new Jarvis Pizzeria partner, wrote an extensive blog about the status of OIC according to his opinion (oic-oracle-integration-cloud-what-is-it?).

28. Getting Started with Dynamic Processes (ACM)

This introductory blog consists of an overview of the different parts of Dynamic Processes. This is done via the default sample tour of Oracle PCS.

29. Setting up the Dynamic Process

In this blog we set the skeleton for the Pizzeria Dynamic Process. We define the different phase, activities, tasks and milestones.

Besides that we found out that the standard Oracle example tour cannot be saved as a starting point for further work. However, the save button is available, suggesting that this is possible. Oracle this is a bit confusing.

30. The logic underneath the Dynamic Process

In this blog we connect processes and task to the activities created in the skeleton of the dynamic process of the previous blog.

We show how things look-like on runtime for running and also completed instances. OIC gives a good out of the box representation of the dynamic process. We can work on the process within the OIC and have an overview of what happened with the process. We see the progression, stages, activities and can drill in the audit trail.
