The rapid shift from on-premise applications to a hybrid mix of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and onpremise applications has introduced big challenges for companies attempting to simplify enterprise application integration.
One reason for this challenge is the ease in which Lines of Business (LOBs, such as marketing, sales, customer support, etc.) can subscribe to multiple disparate SaaS applications with little or no involvement from internal IT. Once the LOB starts using the SaaS application however, there is often a need to integrate with existing applications.
Prior to Oracle Integration Cloud Service, integration platforms have been too complicated to easily include participation with LOB application users, resulting in a costly, time consuming, and error prone attempt at integration. Oracle Integration Cloud Service is a lightweight solution that simplifies connectivity between applications, and can connect both applications that live in the cloud and applications that still live on premises.
