Oracle Integration (OIC) – a holistic view by Niall Commiskey
Blog: PaaS Community
The focus of my posts is usually on the Integration component of OIC. But sometimes it’s better to emerge from the details and take a more holistic view of what is on offer. I may be preaching to the converted, but just in case…
OIC is THE toolkit for connecting your apps, extending your apps, creating net new apps/mashups on top of your app apis and, finally, providing insight into your business processes
Let’s start from the bottom up – OIC runs natively on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). It’s one of many services that does so. Others, such as the one’s I have listed above may be very useful from an OIC perspective, e.g. processing streaming data from the OCI Streaming Service. OIC already has an OCI Streaming Adapter. What about event driven scenarios? The OCI Events Service can respond to resource changes in your tenancy. Orchestration business logic can be implemented in Oracle’s Functions as a Service platform. This is a big value add in respect to our competitors. Please note the OCI Services list in my slide is not exhaustive, other services such as OCI Logging are not listed, purely for space reasons.
Next level – a couple of months ago we released the File Server component. Now you have your own sftp conform server within your OIC environment. Currently you have an allocation of 500GB of space for processing / storing your files. Leveraging File Server is a no-brainer, considering how many ERP and HCM integrations are still file based.
