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.

What's New in Oracle Event Processing 12c?

Event processing is an integral part of an Internet of Things platform. As massive amounts of data streams from sensing devices, it’s important to derive an understanding of what data is important and what’s not. Oracle Event Processing (OEP) delivers real-time analysis of high-velocity data. It is a complete solution for building IoT applications to filter, correlate and process events in real time so that downstream applications are driven by true, real-time intelligence. OEP filters out noise (such as data ticks without any change in values) and helps identify critical conditions before this data is actually relayed to the back-end. Built on industry standards including SQL, Java, and OSGI, it provides an open architecture for processing complex events.

Oracle Event Processing, part of Oracle SOA Suite, can handle up to a million messages per second at extremely low latencies when running on Oracle engineered systems, making it the ideal solution to perform real-time filtering, geo-location, and pattern matching on the massive streams of data generated by IoT "smart" devices.

Oracle SOA Suite 12c more tightly integrates the OEP platform with Oracle Service Bus and the Oracle SOA Suite Event Delivery Network (EDN). Oracle SOA Suite 12c takes the differentiation of having a unified interface a big step forward by integrating across all major components for Oracle SOA Suite, including 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. 

With Oracle SOA Suite 12c, OEP has been integrated into JDeveloper, providing a visually impressive component palette to create your applications by simply dragging and dropping the required artifacts onto the canvas. With each event node dropped, wizard driven prompting is shown to ensure that the correct and required parameters are quickly defined. Another major new feature is the Event Delivery Network (EDN) event adapter nodes, which provide that tight integration at runtime to Oracle SOA Suite composites and all other SOA components supporting the EDN. 

Using the resource components window view, the Oracle Event Processing runtime server and application status can be easily reviewed and manipulated effectively. 


Figure: Oracle Event Processing 12c – New for 12c, a unified JDeveloper Interface for all SOA integration types, including the design of real-time event flows via the Continuous Query Language.

40+ Oracle SOA Customers in One Location

More than ever before, technology is key to building differentiation. Leveraging new technology trends and innovations is vital for companies to remain competitive. However it can also result in a hodge-podge of technologies and quickly become a maintenance nightmare for IT. Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) or Service Integration has revolutionized how modern businesses can address this by simplifying IT even while enabling innovation and modernization. 

SOA principles have become widely adopted as a foundation for enterprise applications. What began as a basic middleware technology for linking loosely coupled software components has become a key enabler for many of today’s hottest technologies including cloud integration, mobile enablement, application integration, Business to Business (B2B), fast data and the internet of things. In addition the engineered systems advantage for Oracle SOA Suite enables faster time to market and lowered total cost of ownership.

Today thousands of organizations across the world are using SOA to help drive innovations, while improving real-time performance and driving down IT costs. In this booklet we’ve compiled recent case studies across a range of industries including names like Agilent Technologies, Pickles Auction, Fluid-e, Schneider National, Sascar, and Turk Telecom.

Mobile Integration using Oracle Service Bus 12c

Oracle Service Bus 12c enables enterprises to deliver on mobile as an extension of the integration platform.  Developers can create REST/JSON APIs and simplify the process of creating customizable applications from reusable components.  Oracle Service Bus 12c makes it easy to extend on-premise and cloud applications to the mobile channel.

The Oracle Mobile Suite utilizes standard technologies and tools to expose many data formats for exchange data and functions with any mobile application and includes Oracle Service Bus and Oracle Mobile Application Framework. Oracle Service Bus supports all types of connections between applications on mobile devices and back end business systems including the popular REST/JSON.

Using Service Bus, organizations can shield front-end mobile applications from changes that might occur in the backend. They can also shield mobile developers from often intricate and complex details of underlying implementations of back-end applications, such as legacy protocols. In addition, Service Bus can simplify and reduce the information exposed by API interfaces to ensure both optimization of bandwidth and greater control on information shared with mobile users. 

Oracle Service Bus is a part of Oracle SOA Suite 12c. It introduces a REST binding within JDeveloper to simplify mobile enablement by exposing traditional SOAP services, Enterprise Java Beans (EJBs), JCA adapters connecting backend applications or just about any other underlying implementation through REST/JSON. The REST binding is available for SOA composites and Oracle Service Bus services and allows the configuration of REST interactions as exposed service or proxy service. It also allows the invocation of externally available REST services.

Managing Files for the Hybrid Cloud - Oracle Managed File Transfer 12c

Summary from the White Paper "Managing Files for the Hybrid Cloud"

Fully integrated file transfer solutions are a core requirement in the new and hybrid world of cloud and on-premise enterprises. Organizations still make heavy use of files utilizing bulk, batch, and real-time updates for application integration. As cloud Software as a Service (SaaS) is introduced in the IT landscape, file integrations simply increase in both size and volume. The general approach for on-premises and partner file integrations using Managed File Transfer (MFT) is similar to other IT infrastructure integration: Plan, Scope and Deliver incrementally. 

For most organizations, MFT is not new but rather there is a need to put together a single enterprise wide file transfer solution that scales to partners and the cloud. Changes in security and compliance requirements are driving IT organizations to replace aging or custom script based file transfer technologies. Encryption such as PGP and Secure FTP servers are still the norm, but they must utilize existing Identity Management to define users, groups and roles for remote access. Finally, the need to integrate MFT with existing integration tooling such as Oracle SOA Suite cannot be overstated. Since MFT typically does not support document transformations and other complex orchestration use cases, it is critical for MFT to act as a file gateway when used in tandem with the existing integration platform.


Figure 1: End to End Secure FTP to File Use Case

File processing has matured a lot in the recent years. Even though real-time processing is dominant in many integration patterns, files are still the bread and butter for many industries while integrating back-end enterprise systems. Cloud integrations are expected to increase the demand for file-based integrations even more. Built- in functionality for security, encryption, and global visibility have long been core MFT requirements. But as this paper has illustrated, an easy to use MFT solution that integrates with existing technologies, is an invaluable tool for solving complex problems such as partner EDI transactions, processing very large files or securing the enterprise.
