Managed Cloud Integration Service – Essential for the Hybrid Cloud Model


Today, enterprises seek to do more than just save money with cloud technology —they also crave agility. Companies are looking beyond the goal of reducing capital expenses and operational expenses, and now seek to implement technologies that enable usage metrics, self-service offerings and automated provisioning without an accompanying surge in operational costs. Hybrid cloud deployments, leveraging a mix of both public and private cloud platforms offer this promise. But as enterprises try to create an integrated hybrid cloud environment, they face significant technical challenges.

Integration problems are causing companies to abandon cloud applications and are hurting their ability to innovate. Many times project deadlines are missed due to cloud integration problems.

Oracle Managed Cloud Integration Service (MCIS) eliminates many of the biggest barriers for enterprises that intend to adopt Oracle business applications in the public cloud. By offering pre-built integration templates and complete-lifecycle management for their cloud integration, Oracle MCIS can eliminate hours of non-strategic work for in-house IT organizations while dramatically increasing the reliability of their cloud integrations. Benefits include:

  • Pre-built integrations for rapid deployment with predictable cost and time frames
  • On-going management - patching, monitoring, break-fix, enhancements
  • Business transaction monitoring capability across clouds improve availability for integrations
  • Faster issue resolution and higher availability for cloud integrations
  • Location and platform flexibility - @ Oracle, @ customer, dedicated SOA, SOA PaaS, ICS PaaS
