Cloud and On-Premises Integration for Oracle Applications

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.

Cloud Integration – A Comprehensive Solution,White Paper

Cloud computing solutions are widely hailed as a way to reduce capital expenditures and move to an inexpensive, subscription - based IT model. However, many organizations don’t stop to consider all of the nuances of integrating cloud applications with their existing information systems. While deploying a cloud app or subscribing to a cloud-based service may be relatively straightforward, how will this new IT asset fit in with the rest of the enterprise, including on-premise systems and other cloud applications? What is the system of record from which data will be derived? Which business processes are involved?

Do you need an enterprise data model that is independent of the cloud data model? Read the complete white-paper here.

OSB access to salesforce.com by Steffen Miller

Some time ago I had a request to connect a file with salesforce.com. The tool of choice was Oracle Service Bus, first without any special adapter. So I had to investigate into the salesforce.com way of using web services and how I can approach this challenge.

First of all we need an account with salesforce.com. With this account we can access the Web Services API through Profile -> Setup -> API. Here we need to download the Enterprise WSDL.

You can find more details to this here salesforce.com Documentation.

Now we import the WSDL into the Oracle Service Bus. As written in the docs Before invoking any other calls, a client application must first invoke the login() call to establish a session with the login server, set the returned server URL as the target server for subsequent API requests, and set the returned session ID in the SOAP header to provide server authorization for subsequent API requests.

This means for Oracle Service Bus that we have to use an additional "Service Callout" before calling any other operation. With this in mind, it might be a good idea to store the session information for subsequent calls. As the Oracle Service Bus is stateless, this job could be achieved by using a java callout with a class variable storing the SF session ID. Read the complete article here.

Cloud to On-Premise Connectivity Patterns By Rajesh RahejaDo you have a requirement to convert an Opportunity in Salesforce.com to an Order/Quote in Oracle E-Business Suite? Or maybe you want the creation of an Oracle RightNow Incident to trigger an on-pr

Do you have a requirement to convert an Opportunity in Salesforce.com to an Order/Quote in Oracle E-Business Suite? Or maybe you want the creation of an Oracle RightNow Incident to trigger an on-premise Oracle E-Business Suite Service Request creation for RMA and Field Scheduling? If so, read on.

In a previous blog post, I discussed integrating TO cloud applications, however the use cases above are the reverse i.e. receiving data FROM cloud applications (SaaS) TO on-premise applications/databases that sit behind a firewall. Oracle SOA Suite is assumed to be on-premise with with Oracle Service Bus as the mediation and virtualization layer. The main considerations for the patterns are are security i.e. shielding enterprise resources; and scalability i.e. minimizing firewall latency. Let me use an analogy to help visualize the patterns: the on-premise system is your home - with your most valuable possessions - and the SaaS app is your favorite on-line store which regularly ships (inbound calls) various types of parcels/items (message types/service operations). You need the items at home (on-premise) but want to safe guard against misguided elements of society (internet threats) who may masquerade as postal workers and vandalize property (denial of service?). Let's look at the patterns. Read the complete article here.

Recap of the "Real-World Cloud Integration Simplified with Oracle SOA Suite" presentation at Oracle OpenWorld 2013

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)

Raghu 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 fields.
Here are some of the points I appreciated:

    • The 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.
    • A 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.

SOA: Simplifying Cloud, Mobile, and On-premise Integration–Webcast October 24th 2013

Proliferation of mobile devices, data explosion, and cloud enablement has caused a dramatic shift in IT. Organizations need to rethink their application infrastructures to accommodate increased processing speeds, heightened security and availability concerns for their applications, all while meeting lowered total cost of ownership. Traditional infrastructures may not be sufficient to accommodate the diversity and complexity of integrations in this new era.

Many of today’s IT organizations rely on a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) backbone to keep their businesses running. SOA adoption and acceptance across industries have led to platform maturity at the application layer level. However, we are at the start of an era where there is a new modus operandi for organizations to thrive and deliver continuously on competitive differentiation. This change is a result of market globalization, explosion in the number of mobile devices, unparalleled growth in voluminous data and innovation that crosses organizational boundaries. Social, mobile, cloud are terms that are revolutionizing the way organizations operate.

Oracle SOA Suite is a hot-pluggable software suite to build, deploy and manage Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA).Oracle SOA transforms complex application integration into agile and reusable service-based connectivity by mediating, routing, and managing interactions between services and applications in the enterprise and in the cloud. Oracle SOA Suite's hot-pluggable architecture helps businesses lower upfront costs by allowing maximum re-use of existing IT investments and assets.
