month, Oracle made available their latest tool within their integration
cloud strategy, Integration Cloud Service (ICS). With the number of
SaaS applications growing, the need to integrate is becoming more
important, making ICS even more relevant.
The intended usage of
ICS are implementations of simple, light weight integrations between
SaaS applications. It resides within the cloud, is built off the Oracle
Service Bus, and is available on a monthly subscription basis.
solutions will be available in the marketplace (think app store),
allowing for reusable integrations to be purchased, implemented in an
accelerated manner. This will provide the option to reuse existing
integrations as-is, or build on top of the existing, customizing for
your business integration needs. If the pre-built solutions don’t meet
your integration needs, the capability to develop your own from scratch
is always on option. Either way, the development of an integration
within ICS can be done using the capabilities detailed in this article.
ICS, there are 4 aspects: Integrations, Connections, Lookups, and
Packages. Each of these will be discussed in further detail.
integrations between SaaS applications is done in ICS via a web based
tool. Using drag and drop capabilities, an integration can easily be
defined. Since the tool is built on top of OSB, the functions defined
within the VETO (validate, enrich, transform, and operation) integration
design pattern are available for implementation: Read the complete article here.
