I hope you were able to make it to the Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com webcast. In case you had car trouble, the replay and slides are available (link). As you learned, the new Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com takes the complexity out of integration by encapsulating session management, security and other tasks into the same intuitive wizard-based approach that has been so popular with our other adapters. During the webcast, we started with a visual description of the challenges that can occur with a growth in disparate toolkits and then converged onto the Oracle solution for unifying cloud and on-premises integration with a single standards-based toolkit. Then Vikas Anand gave a demo of Salesforce.com/E-Business Suite real time integration followed by a quick demo of how to set up the adapter.
We had over 150 questions and here are few selected questions and the answers:
Q: Will this work with Oracle SOA Suite 11g or is this an upcoming 12c feature?
A: The Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com is available today and works with SOA Suite 11g
Q: What adapters are coming in the future?
A: Check out the video from Oracle OpenWorld with Thomas Kurian and Demed L'Her available on Oracle Media Network (6:15)
Q: Does the adapter work with Oracle Service Bus and Oracle BPM Suite?
A: Yes, as of release 188.8.131.52
Q: Does the Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com let you integrate to other cloud and on-premises applications?
A: Yes, the adapter connects Salesforce.com to Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle SOA Suite has over 200 integration adapters and other technologies to support integration to a wide range of cloud and on-premise applications
Q: Where can I find more detailed technical information?

Q: What is the price for the cloud adapter?
A: Download the public "Oracle Technology Global Price List" and search for "Cloud Adapters"
We hope you enjoyed the webcast, even though you would have needed to view it from your iPad on the dashboard of your car to experience it like the image but it's fun to think about alternate communication channels such as a drive-in. Maybe next time. Here is the link to the replay (link)
