Demystifying Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) by Eduardo Barra Cordeiro
In my previous article, I gave some input about the Oracle API Platform as a digital transformation enabler. Today I am going to walk you through another product, Oracle Integration Cloud, and try to demystify what the product is and who benefits from it. I will also provide some use cases for this platform.
Why do I need an integration system in the cloud?
In a hybrid cloud environment with applications hosted in different places (clouds and/or on premise), the integration between them can become a challenge. Especially considering security, accessibility and latency.
A cloud integration solution can be a good way to resolve that. Even better, if it is simple to use and contains multiple adapters for different targets, allowing business teams to easily implement applications themselves (for the most of the part with almost zero-coding). This is the Oracle Integration Cloud.
Which components does the OIC have?
Oracle Integration Cloud consists of three parts. Combined, they provide a set of solutions that help you design business processes, integrations, orchestrations and web/mobile applications. You can use each one independently if you prefer.
Process Builder: made to design your business processes using a friendly interface and zero coding (yes, it is not a joke… you can code if you want, or if you have any specific requirements). You can also use the platform to execute activities related to your process, like task approvals, monitoring, and reports. Read the complete article here.
