Hybrid Integrations with Oracle Platforms & Services by Kathiravan Udayakumar

imageHybrid Integration combines different integration methods to connect various applications and data sources such as on-premises, Cloud, and third-party systems. Hybrid Integration is both a terminology and a technology (Platform). It is critical to acknowledge that Hybrid Integration and Hybrid Integration Platforms (HIPs) are used distinctly in this article to describe the concepts and capabilities.

Hybrid Integration as terminology provides a point of view and clarity on how the IT Landscape is evolving and is to be adopted within various Integration contexts for a Modern Enterprise. It provides an approach to consider for evolving future Enterprise Integration strategies and encompasses various new and unfolding integration domain models, architectural styles, and archetypes. It also highlights the critical capabilities of abstract technology maps.

Hybrid Integration Platforms (HIP) can be implemented through various technologies, such as enterprise service buses, messaging systems, file transfer solutions, batch orchestration tools, process integration products, cloud integration platforms, API management tools, etc. This approach allows organizations to take advantage of the benefits of different products and technology while minimizing the potential drawbacks of any one method. It can also allow organizations to be more flexible in using and managing various integration platform technologies.

It is unlikely that one platform alone can satisfy all the needs of hybrid integrations; each of these systems may have unique requirements and capabilities, and a single platform may not fully support them. Additionally, organizations may have different use cases and requirements for their integration needs, such as real-time data replication, batch processing, and API management, which may require different capabilities and technologies. A combination of different platforms and tools will likely be needed to support a comprehensive hybrid integration strategy.

The key concept to be understood from this article is, though we have adopted ubiquitous computing for seamless end-user experiences to access data, information, insights, and intelligence, platforms that enable them are heterogenous, working together in few cases and in parts to create the more considerable sum for seamless user experience as discussed above; this acknowledgment is very critical to engineer the hybrid integrations. The need for hybrid Integration is growing with complexity and should be viewed critically by businesses to invest in the correct set of platforms, tools, and technologies. Toward the end of this article, we will discuss the possible convergence of delivery practices for cost optimization to develop hybrid integrations used to innovate your business.  Get the paper here
