Oracle AIA Release 3.1 includes nine cross-industry Process Integration Packs (PIP), eight vertical PIPs, and two direct integrations certified for Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g.
Debuting in Oracle AIA Release 3.1 are three new PIPs including Agile PLM for Process and Oracle Process Manufacturing, as well as Health Sciences industry specific PIPs: Oracle Clinical Trial Payments and Oracle Serialization and Tracking.
Oracle AIA Release 3.1 speeds time to value of the development of loosely coupled process integrations by harnessing the combined power of predefined application integration and Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g.
With AIA Release 3.1, Oracle continues to deliver on its promise of providing a predefined architecture that helps reduce complexity, accelerating delivery of enterprise-class integration solutions, and offering pre-built integrations across all major Oracle applications, including support for newer versions of these applications.

Oracle AIA Release 3.1– Pre-built integration Highlights Include:

The Oracle Serialization and Tracking Integration Pack combine the product serialization and pedigree management capabilities of Oracle Pedigree and Serialization Manager with the Oracle E-Business Suite’s inventory, manufacturing and order management applications. This pre-built integration includes all required business process models, thereby lowering risk and complexity and shortening implementation timeframes for mass-serialization projects.
The Oracle Design-to-Release Integration Pack for Agile Product Lifecycle Management for Process and Oracle Process Manufacturing is a pre-built, best practice integration process that is configurable and extensible to meet your unique process needs. Based upon open standards-based Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), it is designed to enable seamless synchronization of your enterprise product record and recipes across your supply chain and extended product network. The pre-built integration accelerator supports enterprise processes that connect the PLM product record and recipes in Oracle Agile Product Lifecycle Management for Process with the Oracle E-Business Suite Process Manufacturing.
Clinical Trial Payments Integration Pack for Siebel Clinical is a partial integration utilizing SOA technology providing the first building blocks to automate the clinical trial payment process. Payment request information from Siebel Clinical is plugged into a SOA-based integration that can be utilized by any other system in the payments process. Once the payment has been made the payment details from any system can also be inserted into the integration and received back into the Siebel Clinical system so the clinical team is aware that the payment has been made.
The Oracle Value Chain Planning Integration Base Pack, which previously delivered pre-built integration from JD Edwards EnterpriseOne to Value Chain Planning and Demantra Demand Management solutions, has now been extended to include integration with PeopleSoft Enterprise Supply Chain Management to Demantra Demand Management.
