Oracle Introduces Cloud Adapter to Simplify Salesforce.com Integration

A game changer addition to Oracle…” is how Matt Wright, CTO of Rubicon Red put itMatt Wright

If you have been asking yourself:

“Do I need another integration toolkit separate from my existing platform just for cloud integration?” or “Should I use the limited functionality integration tools within each cloud application I need to integrate?...Won’t that lead to a complex mess of disparate and overlapping integration?” 

If so, take a look at Oracle Cloud Adapters. This release significantly simplifies integration of Salesforce.com and lets companies more easily get a complete and unified view of customer and back-end data spanning cloud and on-premises applications using Oracle SOA Suite and the Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com. Check out this Oracle Media Network Video (screenshot on the right) of Matt Wright, Maulik Shah, Technical Lead for Brocade Communications, and Badhri Rajagopalan, Practice Director SOA Integration with Bluenog.

Salesforce.com Integration

To address the questions posed above, this release illustrates Oracle’s integration strategy. Instead of companies having to deploy a cloud integration platform focused on cloud applications and then having a separate integration platform for existing applications, Oracle SOA Suite provides a single solution for integrating applications regardless of deployment location (public cloud, private cloud, or on-premises). This approach is designed to simplify integration and lower total cost of ownership in contrast to managing multiple disparate integration platforms and/or app-embedded integration toolkits, most of which use proprietary languages.

Although Oracle SOA Suite customers have been showcasing their cloud integration success stories for years at Oracle OpenWorld, this release eliminates many of the manual steps, automates session management tasks, and significantly simplifies security. Oracle SOA Suite customers already familiar with Oracle Application Adapters will see that the Oracle Cloud Adapters use the same wizard-based approach to provide visibility into the Salesforce.com business objects directly from within Oracle SOA Suite to simplify integration.

Customers using Oracle Applications such as E-Business Suite, Oracle Fusion Applications, etc. already have simplified integration since Oracle SOA Suite components are integrated or embedded into these applications. Combined with the Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com, customers of both Oracle and Salesforce.com applications will have seamless integration spanning applications across the cloud and on-premises.

Spend a Day in the Cloud at Oracle Cloud World

Cloud and mobile are breakthrough technologies which are helping companies innovate and differentiate. Gone are the traditional ways of managing, customizing, and extending business applications. With the change in technology trends, IT is viewed more as a strategic partner, and organizations are looking to focus more on a "customer-first" strategy than ever before. However, companies are still dealing with age old problems of getting IT and business to work together, making the IT infrastructure less rigid, and struggling to better align priorities across the enterprise. While cloud and mobile take-over solving traditional problems, customers aren't getting the right insight across their cloud, mobile and on-premise apps and 50% of these initiatives get abandoned due to the complexity of integration and fear of security compromises.

To understand how to bridge solving some of these traditional problems with an effective modernization of your business solution, you can start with the keynote address at the upcoming Oracle Cloud World. Here are five axioms that will be explored to lead business modernization all the way from start to success:

- Simplifying integration between on-premise and Cloud

- Connect and collaborate: Making your business applications more social 

- Improve time to insight:  Enable rapid business intelligence without IT overhead

- Extend for Mobile: Enable mobility with rich user experience

- Cloud Security: Reduce risk and meet cloud security service level agreements
