Cloud Integration White Paper - Now Available

Interested in expanding your existing application infrastructure to integrate with cloud applications?  Download the new Oracle White Paper "Cloud Integration - A Comprehensive Solution" to learn not just about connectivity but the other key aspects of successful cloud integration.

The paper includes three technical examples of cloud integration with Oracle Fusion Applications, Saleforce, and Workday and follows with the importance of taking a comprehensive approach to also include service aggregation, service virtualization, cloud security considerations and the benefit of maintaining a unified approach to monitoring and management despite an increasingly distributed hybrid infrastructure.

To keep the integration architecture from being defined "accidentally" as new business units subscribe to additional cloud vendors outside the participation of IT, a discussion on the "Accidental SOA Cloud Architecture" is included:

As shown in the table of contents below, the white paper provides a combination of high-level awareness about key considerations as well as a technical deep dive of the steps needed for cloud integration connectivity:

Details of the Course

This course explains how to use Oracle BAM to monitor enterprise business activities across an enterprise in real time. You can measure your key performance indicators (KPIs), determine whether you are meeting service-level agreements (SLAs), and take corrective action in real time.
