Out-of-the-Box Integration: Is it really true?
By Tony Berk on Jul 30, 2009
On Thursday, August 6th, you can hear the real story. In an Oracle Reference Forum, Pella Corporation, a leader in designing, manufacturing, and installing quality windows and doors for businesses and homes worldwide, will discuss how they integrated Oracle CRM On Demand and Oracle E-Business Suite. How did they do it? How fast did they do it? What impact has it had on their Oracle CRM On Demand users?
You have probably heard about Oracle's Application Integration Architecture or "AIA". In case you haven't, here is a high level description: AIA offers prebuilt solutions at the data, process, and user interface level, delivering a more complete process solution to business end users. All Oracle AIA components are designed to work together in a mix–and–match fashion and are built for configurability, ultimately lowering the cost and IT burden of building, extending, and maintaining integrations.
Now, that's a pretty good marketing description, but what does that really mean and how do companies benefit from AIA? One key word that means a lot to IT organizations is "prebuilt". So, one of the real benefits of AIA is that you aren't starting from scratch or getting just a toolkit. Pella will discuss how Oracle’s out-of-the-box capabilities helped them quickly build an opportunity-to-quote process without having to design, build, and test the end-to-end system from scratch.
