Ovum Lauds Oracle SOA Suite 12c, Differentiates Cloud and Mobile Integration
By Mala Ramakrishnan on Sep 05, 2014
Ovum has recently published a paper on Oracle SOA Suite and lays out differentiation. According to the paper, with the latest release of Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle has again proved that it can swiftly respond to customer requirements while ensuring continuity in product strategy to offer a unified platform for a wide range of integration requirements. Here is an excerpt from the paper:
Oracle SOA Suite 12c has introduced several new features and capabilities that resonate with the current integration priorities of enterprises, especially cloud and mobile integration. What differentiates Oracle SOA Suite 12c from competing platforms is its emphasis on simplifying the process involved in the development, testing, and execution of integration flows connecting a wide range of applications.
This developer-centric approach is evident in the simple approach offered by the Oracle Cloud Adapter software development kit (SDK) for the development of new adapters to software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications. Furthermore, Oracle Cloud Adapters handle several inherent intricacies of SaaS integration, such as session management, data mapping, and specific security requirements to help reduce development efforts and costs. The developer-centric approach is also evident in the developer tooling enhancements introduced as part of Oracle SOA Suite 12c release.
Another noteworthy feature is the integration between Oracle MFT and Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle B2B 12c, which provides support for complex orchestration use cases, such as the extension of enterprise applications to B2B e-commerce and cloud integration scenarios.
Oracle has further refined its approach to cloud and mobile integration.
Developer productivity is a key theme for Oracle SOA Suite 12c.
Oracle MFT strengthens the overall value proposition of Oracle’s integration middleware stack.
