SOA Summit - Oracle Session Replay

SOA Summit Banner

If you think you missed the most recent Integration Developer News (IDN) "SOA Summit" 2013...good news, you didn't. 

At least not the replay of the Oracle session titled:

Three Solutions
for
Simplifying Cloud/On-Premises Integration

As you will see in the reply below, this session introduces

Three common reasons for integration complexity:

  1. Disparate Toolkits
  2. Lack of API Management
  3. Rigid, Brittle Infrastructure

and then the

Three solutions to these challenges:

  1. Unify Cloud On-premises Integration
  2. Enable Multi-channel Development with API Management
  3. Plan for the Unexpected - Future Readiness

The last solution on future readiness describes how you can transition from being reactive to new trends, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), by modifying your integration strategy to enable business agility and how to recognize trends through Fast Data event processing ahead of your competition.

Oracle SOA Suite customer SFpark's (San Francisco Metropolitan Transit Authority) implementation with API Management is covered as shown in the screenshot to the right

SFparkThis case study covers the core areas of API Management for partners to build their own applications by leveraging parking availability and real-time pricing as well as mobile enablement of data integrated by SOA Suite underneath.  Download the free SFpark app from the Apple and Android app stores to check it out.

When looking into the future, the discussion starts with a historical look to better prepare for what comes next.   As shown in the image below, one of the next frontiers after mobile and cloud integration is a deeper level of direct "enterprise to customer" interaction.  Much of this relates to the Internet of Things.  Examples of IoT from the perspective of SOA and integration is also covered in the session.

Looking into the Future

For example, early adopter Turkcell and their tracking of mobile phone users as they move from point A to B to C is shown in the image the right.   As you look into more "smart services" such as Location-Based Services, how "future ready" is your application infrastructure?

Transitioning from TIBCO to Oracle SOA - Part 2

Last months "Transitioning from TIBCO to Oracle SOA - Part 1" highlighting Electronic Arts (EA) was the first in a series of blogs on how and why customers have transitioned from TIBCO, IBM, Microsoft and other integration solutions to Oracle SOA Suite.

This blog focuses on how Eaton Corporation transitioned from TIBCO into a services-based integration solution using Oracle SOA Suite.   Their previous integration was based on a lot of point-to-point integrations with TIBCO as described in the Oracle SOA Customer Insights Webcast by Eaton Corporation and shown in the "Eaton's Legacy TIBCO Implementation" screenshot on the right:Legacy TIBCO Integrations

 In the webcast, Eaton states:

"What our goal is, we actually want to get away from TIBCO towards more of a SOA environment"

and describes how they have transitioned to a comprehensive integration solution based on re-usable services encompassing a broad range of applications.  The screenshot below, also from the webcast, illustrates their more recent integration implementation covering Distributed Order Management (DOO), integration to Oracle E-Business Suite, and SAP implementations in Austria and Germany.  Current integration implementation:

Community Management: The Next Wave of SOA Governance and API Management

While SOA Governance, as a discipline, has been around for a number of years, not every company that embarks on the adoption of SOA has decided to embrace it. In some cases, the runtime management of service is implemented, but not the design-time aspects. Now, with the introduction of Cloud Computing and the proliferation of mobile devices, the “new” discipline of API Management is surfacing. This session explores why API Management has emerged, its relationship with SOA governance, and why both of these disciplines will ultimately take a page from the business-to-business world and evolve into a new discipline called “Community Management”.

Tim Hall, VP of Oracle Product Management discusses, compares and contrasts SOA Governance and API Management, explaining why he believes they will evolve into a new discipline called “Community Management”.
