Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com – Understanding What It Does & How You Benefit by ITC

Starting in the 1990’s it became standard operating procedure in all large and even mid-sized companies to use an ERP system  such as Oracle E-Business Suite to manage business processes like Order Management, Accounting System or Supply Chain Management, along with the complete sales and revenue cycle from quote-to-order and order-to-cash.

However, this began to change at the beginning of the second decade of the 21st century, as companies began dropping their legacy systems and opting to move to SaaS-based CRM solutions such as SalesForce.com.  The attraction of solutions such as Salesforce.com is twofold: first, they offer best of breed functionality; second, the SaaS model makes them very attractive from a total cost of ownership perspective. 
However,  the downside that Oracle users face when they adopted a SaaS solution such as SalesForce.com was that it didn’t integrate with Oracle E-Business Suite. And this creates problems such as data silos, data scattering, data quality issues and other major inefficiencies related to business process execution. Maintaining your data also becomes a challenge, as data captured across your system must be duplicated to SalesForce.
To overcome these issues and take full advantage of Oracle EBS and SalesForce.com organizations need to achieve a seamless information flow between the two: they need to integrate them. This much has long been obvious. Read the complete article here.

Drive-In Theater Webcast" Recap – Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com By Bruce Tierney

In case you had car trouble, the replay and slides are available here. As you learned, the new Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com takes the complexity out of integration by encapsulating session management, security and other tasks into the same intuitive wizard-based approach that has been so popular with our other adapters.  During the webcast, we started with a visual description of the challenges that can occur with a growth in disparate toolkits and then converged onto the Oracle solution for unifying cloud and on-premises integration with a single standards-based toolkit.   Then Vikas Anand gave a demo of Salesforce.com/E-Business Suite real time integration followed by a quick demo of how to set up the adapter.

We had over 150 questions and here are few selected questions and the answers:

  • Will this work with Oracle SOA Suite 11g or is this an upcoming 12c feature?
    The Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com is available today and works with SOA Suite 11g
  • What adapters are coming in the future?
    Check out the video from Oracle OpenWorld with Thomas Kurian and Demed L'Her available on Oracle Media Network (6:15)
  • Does the adapter work with Oracle Service Bus and Oracle BPM Suite?
    Yes, as of release 11.1.1.7
