Having worked with Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) products for many years, I have come to the conclusion that,
deployed standalone CRM, ERP, and other applications that were closed off from
easy integration and had few if any small services that could be assembled as
part of a composite application, thereby limiting the value of SOA.
In contrast, Oracle Integration Cloud Service marks a dramatic shift in how we approach integration… equal to the shift from EAI to SOA but with one major difference. Instead of requiring a new learning curve on how to integrate with loosely coupled SOA, Oracle Integration Cloud Service goes in the opposite direction with a focus on ease of use. And instead of integration from scratch, its pre-integration; instead of your best guess, its crowdsourced recommendation ratings. In the past, it was a shame that the application developers who knew their respective CRM, ERP, service, marketing, etc. applications best didn’t embed the integrations themselves into the integration platforms. With Oracle Cloud Integration Service and the Oracle Cloud Adapters…that’s what happened.
And so I wrote the script for this video to graphically convey the ease of use and dramatic shift that Oracle Cloud is bringing to integration into a story of how Oracle Integration Cloud Service can connect a disconnected business.
Watch the new video now to see for yourself. I expect it will be 3 minutes of time well used.
