As cloud computing becomes an essential aspect of business operations for many companies, there is a pressing need to integrate cloud applications with on-premises applications. According to a recent study, however, companies frequently have significant cloud integration challenges, with 53 percent of respondents saying lack of integration with cloud applications is their main hindrance to innovation.1 The middleware solutions in the Oracle AppAdvantage program eliminate this hindrance by sharing standards and components among all enterprise applications. This high level of consistency between Oracle Applications and Oracle integration solutions are key enablers for innovation and competitive advantage.
For example, an enterprise that relies on an on-premises customer relationship management (CRM) application might acquire a company that uses a cloud-based CRM application. Account managers need to be able to access data from both systems cohesively, share data between these systems, and ultimately establish an authoritative system of record. HR systems, payroll systems, and incentive compensation systems also need to work in unison and exchange information so that employees are properly compensated and paid. Putting all this information together in a unified way is essential to delivering a consistent experience for people both inside and outside the firewall.
Oracle AppAdvantage for Cloud and On-Premises Integration
Oracle AppAdvantage is a program powered by Oracle Fusion Middleware technologies that helps customers strengthen their investment in Oracle Applications such as Oracle E-Business Suite as well as Oracle’s JD Edwards, Siebel, and PeopleSoft applications. Oracle SOA Suite - the central middleware component in this program for service integration and application integration - can connect on-premises enterprise systems to a private or public cloud in a cohesive way. It minimizes the distinction between cloud-based and on-premises applications by enabling a unified approach to service integration, process orchestration, application integration, and data integration - regardless of where those applications are deployed.
