I attended this presentation at Oracle OpenWorld 2013 titled "Real-World Cloud Integration Simplified with Oracle SOA Suite" by:
- Raghu Kadirvelu (Bristlecone, Inc.)
- Vikas Anand (Senior Director, Product Management, Oracle)
- Rajesh Raheja (Senior Director, Development, Oracle)
provided a live demo of multiple integrations between E-Business Suite
(which was sitting on premise in their data center) and SalesForce.com
(which resided on the cloud). The SOA Suite integrations were built
using the new 11g SalesForce adapter, and demonstrated the
bi-directional movement of data to satisfy two functional use cases.
This was by far one of the best SOA presentations I attended at OpenWorld this year, and let me explain why.
At the surface, this appears to be a simple presentation on yet another JCA adapter. But both Vikas (@VikasAatOracle) and Rajesh (@RahejaRajesh)
are masters in their domain, and you have to listen closely to them to
really understand that these guys are visionaries in their respective
Here are some of the points I appreciated:
live demo showcased multiple asynchronous integrations between
E-Business Suite and SalesForce, seeing first hand how the end result
works. The techies in the crowd got it.
- A walkthrough in
JDeveloper of the new 11g SalesForce "cloud" adapter was provided, with
mention to some of the various (unique) options specific to the adapter
and how Oracle addressed SalesForce API design considerations.
brief mention of cloud-to-cloud integrations was made, but Vikas stated
that the trend they've been seeing was more onpremise-to-cloud
scenarios, and that typically any organization would want to host their
master data internally while still taking advantage of cursory or
supplementary cloud services. Otherwise you risk having your data
sprinkled across your many public cloud service providers Read the full article here.
