 Processing Large Files with Oracle Managed File Transfer and Oracle SOA Suite [CON7826]

            Presenters: Pandurang Ranjalkar, Larsen & Toubro Infotech Limited & Dave Berry, Senior Manager, Oracle 

Abstract: Files are as prevalent in today’s enterprise integration solutions as they have ever been. Using event patterns that require no polling, files can be delivered with pass-by-reference, which minimizes the memory footprint in your integration processes. This session explores various use cases for solving the age-old problem of processing large files, including using standard Oracle Managed File Transfer compression to reduce the upload time for the end user; using Oracle Managed File Transfer to pass a directory to an Oracle SOA Suite application to process files individually; and, finally, using an Oracle SOA Suite application to debatch very large files delivered from Oracle Managed File Transfer.

Cloud File Delivery with Oracle Managed File Transfer [CON7976]

           Presenters: Dave Berry, Senior Manager, Oracle & Ed Macosky, Senior Director, Software Development, Oracle

Abstract: Organizations transferring files in a hybrid mode from on-premises to the cloud require special tooling to deliver files securely and reliably. Oracle Managed File Transfer supports cloud endpoint protocols, encryption, and user access, leveraging the Oracle WebLogic Oracle Platform Security Services security layer instead of the more typical operating system security model. This gives administrators the flexibility to define users, groups, and roles that match their security needs. In addition, new Oracle Managed File Transfer cloud endpoints extend the reach of the cloud to cloud integrations. This session and demo illustrate these Oracle Managed File Transfer cloud use cases.

Ovum Lauds Oracle SOA Suite 12c, Differentiates Cloud and Mobile Integration

Ovum has recently published a paper on Oracle SOA Suite and lays out differentiation.  According to the paper, with the latest release of Oracle SOA  Suite, Oracle has again proved that it can swiftly respond to customer requirements while ensuring continuity in product strategy to offer a unified platform for a wide range of integration requirements. Here is an excerpt from the paper:

Oracle SOA Suite 12c has introduced several new features and capabilities that resonate with the current integration priorities of enterprises, especially cloud and mobile integration. What differentiates Oracle SOA Suite 12c from competing platforms is its emphasis on simplifying the process involved in the development, testing, and execution of integration flows connecting a wide range of applications. 

This developer-centric approach is evident in the simple approach offered by the Oracle Cloud Adapter software development kit (SDK) for the development of new adapters to software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications. Furthermore, Oracle Cloud Adapters handle several inherent intricacies of SaaS integration, such as session management, data mapping, and specific security requirements to help reduce development efforts and costs. The developer-centric approach is also evident in the developer tooling enhancements introduced as part of Oracle SOA Suite 12c release. 

Another noteworthy feature is the integration between Oracle MFT and Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle B2B 12c, which provides support for complex orchestration use cases, such as the extension of enterprise applications to B2B e-commerce and cloud integration scenarios. 

Key messages 

 Oracle has further refined its approach to cloud and mobile integration. 

 Developer productivity is a key theme for Oracle SOA Suite 12c. 

 Oracle MFT strengthens the overall value proposition of Oracle’s integration middleware stack.

Oracle Is a Leader in the Gartner 2014 Magic Quadrant for On-Premises Application Integration Suites

Oracle is a leader in the Gartner 2014 “Magic Quadrant for On-Premises Application Integration Suites” report. This report is an essential reference for following key trends and understanding what to consider when evaluating on-premises application integration suites.

In the report, Gartner makes the statement that," There are two macro trends and drivers, Nexus of Forces and digital business, which will increase use of on-premises application integration suite offerings.” And specifically defines Digital Business as, “…the creation of new business designs by blurring the digital and physical worlds. It promises to usher in an unprecedented convergence of people, business and things that disrupts existing business models — even those born of the Internet, e-business and digital marketing eras. By 2020, more than 7 billion people and businesses, and at least 35 billion devices, will be connected to the Internet. With people, businesses and things communicating, transacting and even negotiating with one another, a new world comes into being — the world of digital business. Businesses that succeed in this new and disruptive world will be the ones that can capture the combined power of people, businesses and things by picturing how new value is created. To capture that power, IT will be required to encompass endpoints that are in the IoT.”

Oracle continues to capitalize on the Nexus of Forces and Digital Business trends by innovating and lead with its on-premise and cloud integration offerings—here are some of the reasons why:

    • Oracle recently announced Oracle SOA Suite 12c which simplifies Cloud, Mobile and On-Premise Integration. In addition, it delivers an industry leading solution for Internet of Things while continuing to deliver on B2B and Application Integration.

    • Oracle SOA suite seamlessly integrates and connects across the entire IT ecosystem on a single, unified, platform.

    • Oracle SOA Suite achieves faster time to market and increased productivity with lowered TCO, reduces integration complexity and efficiently manages business and technology change.

A Brave New Integration World - Value Proposition of Oracle SOA Suite 12c

Oracle SOA Suite 12c  provides a whole gamut of solutions in extremely complex technical areas. In order to understand the value proposition in each of these solution areas, I recently authored a white paper from the perspective of the customer. Several customers have been showcased in this paper, including JDSU, Agilent, Turkcell, Canon, Ricoh, and Schneider International.

Here is an excerpt from the paper:

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a strategy for connecting business processes and exchanging information via loosely coupled software components. SOA is well entrenched in the IT landscape and SOA principles have become widely adopted as a foundation for enterprise applications. What began as a basic middleware technology for linking information systems has become a key enabler for many of today’s hottest technologies including cloud integration, mobile enablement, fast data and the Internet of Things, application integration, and B2B. SOA has also revolutionized how modern businesses operate by simplifying internal application-integration projects and external business-to-business (B2B) integration tasks. Creating application interfaces with standard, reusable software components makes it easier to accommodate business changes and to share information with business partners.

This paper examines these middleware trends and explains how Oracle SOA Suite can enable a service-oriented foundation for creating, modifying, and combining information from all types of software applications and intelligent devices. Using real world examples, it demonstrates how Oracle customers have solved a wide variety of data management challenges using SOA and related technologies from the Oracle Fusion Middleware family.

What's New in SOA Suite 12c - Unified Interface for Service Bus and Event Processing

This second in a blog series on "What's New in SOA Suite 12c" focuses on another new feature of this major release of

What's New in Oracle SOA Suite 12c White Paper

 Oracle SOA Suite.   In Oracle SOA Suite 11g, the user interface was unified across most of the components with the exception of Oracle Service Bus and Oracle Event Processing.   When I talk to existing customers and Oracle technical specialists, I hear a wide range of responses when asked "What is your favorite feature of Oracle SOA Suite 12c".  Cloud and Mobile integration are at the top of the list, but one of the other common responses is "Oracle Service Bus" using the same JDeveloper interface as Oracle SOA Suite.  This major enhancement has been in the works for years and is now delivered in 12c to allow users to learn one interface for all the components of integration, simplifying integration and providing faster time to integrate, especially when projects span many components of integration.

Here is an excerpt from the "What's New in Oracle SOA Suite 12c" White Paper by Oracle's Simone Geib on the unified interface.  Download it now to learn about this and many other features:

A key differentiator of Oracle SOA Suite 11g relative to other integration platforms has always been the unified design interface across most of the components for Oracle SOA Suite. Oracle SOA Suite 12c takes this differentiator a big step forward by integrating the remaining major components for Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle Service Bus and Oracle Event Processing, into a single unified experience. This feature simplifies integration by eliminating the need to train developers, administrators, architects and others on separate components for every aspect of integration, which lowers cost and provides a faster time to integrate.

The images below show the main component palette for Oracle SOA Suite which now includes "Service Bus" at the top as well as adapters for technology components, on-premise and cloud applications and other advanced features.  On the right, is the same JDeveloper drag and drop component palette showing the objects to be used for Oracle Event Processing.
