Oracle Cloud Adapter-Customer Insights Webcast: Advanstar

When your company tagline is "Connecting our Customers with Theirs", you can't afford to get integration wrong.   Watch this brief on-demand webcast now to learn why Advanstar chose Oracle integration including the new Oracle Cloud Adapters to replace their legacy integration solution to simplify IT and provide real time synchronization between cloud and on-premise applications.Advanstar Title Slide

As you may have seen at Oracle OpenWorld 2014, there has been tremendous interest in the new Oracle Cloud Adapters for simplifying the cloud to on-premises integration challenge.  In this webcast by Advanstar and OSI Consulting, you will learn how Advanstar used the "Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com" to connect their sales reps to Oracle E-Business Suite.  As described in the webcast, here were some of the challenges that drove them to the Oracle Solution:

Challenges Prior to the Oracle Solution:

  • Informatica batch integration using a cloud replication service was not acceptable
  • Lack of real-time integration
  • Data replication jobs ran into each other causing conflicts
  • High volume caused increased problems

Oracle Integration Solution Benefits:

  • Simplified cloud integration using the new Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com
  • Faster integration of future applications
  • Instant updates for sales reps - real time data synchronization

Learn tips & tricks in the second half of this webcast from integration expert Hilal Khan from OSI Consulting who implemented the Oracle SOA Suite solution.  Hilal will walk you through the simple steps to select the cloud application (Salesforce.com in this case) business objects from within the Oracle SOA Suite cloud adapter as well as the value of the offline configuration to simplify development so you don't need to be connected with the SaaS application throughout your development.  Hilal will also describe the benefits of faster and easier troubleshooting, more time for testing, and quicker overall development.

The AppAdvantage of Oracle Cloud & On-premises Integration

Are you an Oracle application customer wondering:

“How do I avoid a nightmare of complexity while expanding my application integration infrastructure from on-premises to a hybrid mix of cloud and on-premises?”

If so, your awareness of the complexity that results when departments develop a growing patchwork of cloud integrations independent from a cohesive enterprise strategy, is an important first step. This naturally evolving complexity, known as the “Accidental Cloud Architecture” returns enterprises to the painful pre-SOA days of point-to-point integration. Much has been written on this phenomenon including a recent Forrester report (“The Hybrid2 Integration Challenge” by Stefan Ried, PH.D., May 1 2013) which states:

“…the existing integration tool landscape at most large enterprises is simply too varied and disparate to support full implementation of a digital business design strategy”

The image below shows a visual description of the challenge of managing a growing collection of disparate integration toolkits and their associated disparate standards and non-standards.

Disparate Toolkits Oracle’s solution to simplifying the complexity of cloud and on-premises integration is based on removing the distinction between cloud and on-premises integration with a unified approach to integration regardless of deployment location. As shown in the image below, this includes a single standards-based toolkit (using Java, BPEL, etc.) across all applications.

Unified Cloud Integration

In addition to the simplified complexity of a unified approach to integration, the following additional features describe the AppAdvantage that Oracle customer’s benefit from when using Oracle Fusion Middleware to integrate Oracle applications.


  • Developed by Oracle Application Software Developers – When using Oracle SOA Suite to integrate with Oracle E-Business Suite, the implementation for selecting application data was developed by the Oracle E-Business Suite software development team for Oracle SOA Suite. This close level of collaboration between Oracle’s application and integration teams minimizes risk by providing you a fully integrated and application version-aware integration solution.
  • Oracle Fusion Applications are Pre-integrated with Oracle SOA Suite – Oracle Fusion Applications already include the core features of Oracle SOA Suite such as the BPEL Process Manager for orchestrating flow between applications and other data stores. When you are ready to expand your integration into an unified platform across your enterprise, you are simply extending the foundation embedded within Oracle Fusion applications.
  • Common Policy Management Between Oracle Fusion Applications & Oracle SOA Suite – Instead of one policy management implementation for your applications and another for your integration platform, Oracle Fusion Applications shares the same Oracle Web Services Management policy management solution with Oracle SOA Suite which simplifies complexity and reduces time to integrate. Policy management for signing messages, performing encryption, authentication, and role-based access control is greatly simplified. Furthermore, changing policies is done independent of the end-points (such as services) so you have greater flexibility and security throughout your enterprise.
  • Mobile-ready Application Enablement & Integration – Instead of splintering off a new mobile enablement and integration platform that will eventually require some form of integration with your enterprise integration platform, Oracle SOA Suite spans the needs of the enterprise developer building SOAP-based services as well as newer mobile application enablement with RESTful services within Oracle SOA Suite's enterprise service bus, known as Oracle Service Bus.  Your enterprise developers can immediately expose services for mobile, cloud, and whatever comes next with this unified approach to integration.
