What data is generated by Process in Oracle Integration
Large volumes of data are generated during the life of each process instance. This data collected can be broadly divided into two. Instance data and Analytics data.
- Instance Data: This is instance specific data generated at each step during execution. It includes the payload, comments, execution and audit information.
- Analytics Data: Additional system metrics and user defined business metrics are also collated and stored at predefined events during the lifecycle of an instance. This data exists independently of the instance data
Archive Process data in Oracle Integration
Archiving is taking data which is no longer actively used and storing it in an external secondary storage where it can be retained for extended time. This archived data can be accessed, if needed, for compliance, audit, and analytics. Archiving the right data can not only save businesses money, but also intelligence derived using this will add value to the business. The following questions are often asked when users are setting up archive: what all data should be archived, how to setup archiving and finally how to retrieve data from the archived file. The purpose of these blogs is to discuss couple of options which will answer these very questions.
When planning an archiving strategy best suited for your needs one must give thought to some basic questions like
- how often you would need to retrieve data from the archive
- what data needs to be available for legal and regulatory compliance
- what data set could be analyzed to add value to the business over time etc.
- what insights are relevant for your business. Read the complete article here.
