Redwood Shores, CA – March 24, 2009

News Facts

The demand and adoption of Oracle Application Integration Architecture (AIA) continues to gain momentum in 2009.
Oracle customers have attained the benefits of Oracle AIA, including recent implementations at leading companies such as Alticor Inc. (Amway), BaneTele, Ciena, Com Hem, Lyse Energi, Pella, Vodafone Qatar and Zebra Technologies.
Oracle AIA is a pre-built, open and complete architecture for orchestrating agile, user-centric business processes across enterprise applications.
Benefits customers have seen include the ability to connect end to end business processes across multiple applications, simplify common business process bringing together their disparate systems, rapidly respond to changing customer and business demands, and lower overall total cost of ownership.
Powered by Oracle® Fusion Middleware, Oracle AIA’s application independent framework enables organizations to utilize the applications of their choice to create composite business processes unique to their business on a flexible service-oriented architecture. As a result, Oracle AIA helps turn rigid IT landscapes into flexible, integrated environments that can adapt and scale more quickly to business needs.
Earlier this month, Oracle announced how Oracle AIA helped Zebra Technologies rapidly integrate Oracle Master Data Management to Siebel CRM and two existing legacy ERP systems on time and under budget.

“The global reach of Oracle Application Integration Architecture is already reaching new heights in 2009,” said Jose Lazares, VP of Oracle AIA. “We are happy to see such respected organizations worldwide take advantage of Oracle AIA, and realize truly complete, open and integrated possibilities for their applications across the enterprise.”
