Since you are reading this blog, its likely you participated in one of over 6 million WebEx meetings with over 1 billion meeting minutes per month. How did Cisco acquire and seamlessly integrate WebEx with such high volume and complex integration requirements?
Check out this video of Cisco's Paras Jain, Senior Manager of IT, as he describes how they used Oracle SOA Suite to merge WebEx into Cisco in 6 months, achieved a break-even on their Oracle SOA Suite investment in 7 months, and hear him describe some of the key benefits they achieved. Paras mentioned a common theme expressed by many other customers... the flexibility of Oracle SOA Suite as a key differentiator. When starting off on integration, it's hard to know what capabilities will be required by your future cloud applications not to mention your internal legacy applications. Oracle SOA Suite provides this flexibility to handle unknown future requirements.
Also highlighted by Paras are additional mobile enablement plans Cisco is rolling out for iPhone and Android phones powered by Oracle SOA Suite integration on the back-end.
Coming soon, Paras will present in the "Customer Insight Webcast Series - Oracle SOA & BPM"...stay tuned for logistics. Here is a sneak-peak of a slide he will describe in detail:
