Oracle Integration Cloud Service Primary Use Case

Rishabh Singhal - PeerSpot reviewer
Business and Technology Delivery Associate Manager at Accenture

Oracle ERP Fusion Cloud is used for enterprise resource planning. We have different ERP modules at HCM, such as human capital management, supply chain management, and asset work management. 

We use Oracle Integration Cloud to automate a large number of integrations. For example, if you want to load the employee file from, say, a boundary system or Workday, you are providing me with a file containing the employees' salaries, and designations. I need to import it into the Oracle ERP Fusion Cloud or the ERP cloud's human capital management module, but there is no simple or direct way to import that file into the ERP cloud or that CM.

In Oracle Integration Cloud, we take the file, read it, and transform it to meet the MAT requirements of the ERP cloud or SIM cloud. For example, we create the HDL for a MAT file that contains HCM data, we also automate it. Basically, you provide the file, and we transform it. We will submit the job to ERP, where we will be able to encrypt, decrypt, and increase security. The Boundary system only needs to provide the file, and we will convert it to the required format and load it into the ERP cloud, sending notifications, logging, and monitoring.

The main use case is "systems integration" for my company's enterprise customers across many different industry sectors.

One of our customer projects that use Oracle Integration Cloud or OIC iPaaS is ERP to e-commerce integration. Integration flows were developed for keeping product inventory, prices, addresses in sync between various end-systems. Additional non-functional goals were maintainability, stability, scalability, graceful error-handling, and "predictable performance". The predictability has been verified via repeatable testing and seamless operation in production. 

Additionally, we have implemented other use-cases like shipping integration (such as DHL, FedEx), order flows from e-commerce to ERP, & many more granular and custom use cases specific to customer needs (e.g. implementing internal APIs to support larger enterprise business processes or application user interfaces, bulk data reconciliation and many more).

In general, a cloud-based product helps avoid the high lead-up times and maintenance overheads involved in setting up in-house infrastructure, and this is adequately achieved by OIC iPaaS. 

OIC, in particular, is also well integrated with Oracle SaaS ERP via "business events" and easy to integrate via Rest APIs (though other integration platforms also offer API-based integration, it makes a lot of sense to use OIC if a customer already uses Oracle SaaS). 

OIC offers a number of pre-built technology and SaaS adapters for high productivity for a wide range of target systems, both in-house via agents and cloud/SaaS, via a very flexible range of interfaces. These include APIs by way of Rest/SOAP over http/s, files like ZIP and CSV over filesystem or S/FTP, databases, and more. All of these interface types were utilized in our customer solutions to deliver a range of functionality in the form of "integration flows".

This can be an Oracle-agnostic tool; it does not have to be Oracle-specific; it can integrate any other tools as well. However, it is very useful for integrating other Oracle applications. 

It can easily integrate Oracle Financial Suite, Oracle CPQ, and any other Oracle products, for example. When working with Oracle, this is the unmistakable integration tool we recommend. 

This is also an autonomous one, self-service, which is fantastic. If you need more messaging capacity, you can add it on a self-service page in the public cloud. It does a variety of market standard adapters, such as SAP, Google, and Facebook, as well as DocuSign.

Our use case is for its different modular compartments. We have different target integrations with different applications such as Ariba, Concur, Workday, where we're using the connectors to connect to those applications. We're using both mechanisms and lookups and the database systems that come with OIC. We've started our DVC simple config and have integrated that database. We pulled from Ariba and Concur and pushed it into the database and we've done some mappings and changes. We're exploring more features of OIC to see what else we can use. Right now it is in lookups connections and integration, we're planning to use ATP for our transactions in the future. 

We also use the Visual Studio Builder and embed some customizations into this app. We will be using the VPN that comes through the Oracle PaaS and that's the strategy right now. We need to complete a final evaluation before deciding in which direction to proceed. We're customers of Oracle and I'm a customer solutions architect.

If I want to integrate with my on-premise application at the financial organization finance, I can do so. I can use the SAT finance and I have Oracle Fusion as my HR solution. I can send information from Oracle Fusion to Oracle SAP. Integration is required and I can use OICS for the dashboard. I can use two types of approaches - one is a real-time approach, and another is the best processing approach. I would always prefer to go with that best processing approach, and if we set a middle layer. It's good, however, to have options.

In the middle layer, I can set up one type of integration - a Journey integration. With the Journey integration, are have personal-related information. It is already, readily, available.

We had a lot of integration between our On-Premise Systems and the Oracle ERP Cloud. We used it in that context.

We are a system integrator, and Oracle Integration Cloud Service is one of the solutions we work with. We also work with other vendor solutions such as Apache Camel. We provide solutions depending on the environment and preferences of our customers.

I am basically connecting a number of backend systems or creating the API backends for shipping, e-commerce, and ERP integrations. There are a number of use cases, such as product price updates to e-commerce, pricing and inventory information, ERP backend, and e-commerce front end.
