Oracle Announces
New Oracle Cloud Platform for Integration with
Oracle SOA Cloud and Oracle API Manager Cloud Services

Expands Oracle’s iPaaS portfolio to simplify application and
service integration across cloud, mobile and IoT

Oracle, the industry leader in applications and middleware, today announced Oracle SOA Cloud Service and Oracle API Manager Cloud Service, new additions to Oracle Cloud Platform for Integration, a comprehensive suite of integration services that enable users to quickly integrate on-premises and cloud applications. These two cloud services join Oracle’s other iPaaS services, including Oracle Integration Cloud, which was announced in June.

Using the industry leading Oracle SOA Suite as its foundation, Oracle SOA Cloud Service is a comprehensive and unified cloud-based integration platform that is built for developers’ diverse requirements. It provides easy provisioning, simplified management, automated upgrades and the ability to easily scale out, enabling users to quickly develop and deploy APIs and integration projects to deliver innovative services faster. Additionally, it supports hybrid integration with its deployment portability feature, enabling customers to easily migrate their integration platform from the cloud to on-premises and back again to support changing business requirements. The portability feature is ideal for organizations that want to move their integration workloads to the cloud, do dev/test in the cloud, but deploy production on-premises, as well as in instances of regulatory compliance changes where an application deployed in the cloud needs to move on-premises.

Agility is key to surviving and thriving in today’s business environment. While organizations need to quickly build or mobile-enable existing applications, integrate with the cloud, and connect IoT devices to existing systems to stay competitive, the complexity and scale of new applications is unprecedented. Organizations are increasingly emphasizing REST- and SOAP-based APIs as a strategy to mitigate this risk. Oracle API Manager Cloud Service enables developers to create new custom APIs and expose them to internal or external consumers in a secure way to help develop innovative offerings for end users.

Oracle announces Integration Cloud Service,
the Next-Generation Integration Platform in the Cloud

Oracle, the industry leader in applications and middleware, today officially launched a portfolio of Oracle Cloud Services including Integration Cloud Service (ICS), an innovative way to design and deliver integrations in the cloud. Larry Ellison, Chairman of the Board, and Thomas Kurian, President, unveiled the Oracle Cloud Platform Services to enable customers to integrate with next-generation cloud services, accelerate application development and deployment and transform customer businesses.

With the new Integration Cloud Service and its broad spectrum of on-premises SOA Suite product offerings, Oracle has delivered a comprehensive hybrid cloud platform and continues to establish thought leadership in enterprise cloud integration.

Oracle Integration Cloud Service is Oracle's integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) . It provides a highly intuitive and simplified integration platform on the cloud with a point-and-click web based designer, comprehensive SaaS and on-premises connectivity portfolio with its library of adapters, intelligent mapping capabilities, and a rich dashboard for managing and monitoring integrations in one place.

Integration Cloud Service is designed for SaaS and optimized for high productivity. This is exactly what powers organizations to keep pace with and stay ahead of their competition, through increased business agility, lower costs and higher efficiency.

ICS runs on the powerful and secure Oracle Cloud infrastructure, providing the critical high availability, security and reliability to businesses. It also means that Oracle will be responsible for patching, backup, and upgrades of the integration platform. Fueled by the same proven industrial strength runtime engine that powers the on-premises integration platform, ICS ensures high performance mission critical delivery of messages between applications wherever they reside.

Oracle is the largest SaaS company in the world, and Integration Cloud Service is the critical integration backbone for these SaaS Applications, helping them to be more connected and more integrated than ever. Oracle Cloud Marketplace is the avenue for customers to browse, search and discover pre-packaged integrations between various Oracle SaaS applications that are critical to their businesses, and activate those integrations in one click, or customize them to their specific business requirements.

Announcing Oracle API Manager

Business leaders expect new business solutions to come to market quickly while the complexity of these solutions increases dramatically. Not only have the scope and scale of these solutions expanded, significant portions of the solutions are increasingly implemented outside of the IT organization. Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) provide access to, and information about, back-end business processes. As the number of APIs an organization produces and uses increases, the management and visibility of these APIs becomes increasingly important.

Oracle API Manager facilitates the creation of APIs that expose the functionality of backend systems and services. These APIs are published for use by application developers and are managed and monitored at runtime.
