Implementing Oracle Integration Cloud

Understanding Oracle's Integration Cloud and how to get the most out of your implementation

August 22 – New OIC Articles

August is a special month for OIC as we see the launch of Generation 3 of the product. The biggest differences are under the hood, with the core engine moving from a WebLogic basis to running on top of Cloud Native OCI services. As a result, the solution will be able to more efficiently leverage other OCI features to deliver enhancements. Not all of the Gen2 features are running on Gen3, we can expect things to follow quickly. When looking at documentation you’ll need to watch out for references to Oracle Integration Generation 2 vs. Integration Generation 3.

Not only do we have Integration Generation 3, but a new independent Process Automation solution was launched in March.

To help differentiate the articles, where we can we’ll continue to refer to the Process automation that resides within OIC as PCS using the legacy name. Anything referring to the new Process Automation service we’ll identify as OPA. Differentiating Integration Generation 2 or 3 will be OIC2 or OIC3, respectively. If there is no generation number, then at this stage, you can assume the answer is quickly true to both generations.

July 22 – New OIC Articles

July’s big news is the connectivity between OCI and Azure for Oracle to streamline Azure users accessing Oracle databases (here), and more importantly, for OIC users is the addition of new Sovereign nation regions (here). For OIC users this means the possibility of handling data that is more sensitive to where the data resides.

Sources of knowledge and learning provided by Oracle

The resources provided by Oracle for learning about their technologies are substantial but distributed. This to an extent is another manifestation of Conway’s Law.

I have however tried to compile and describe those resources here. This list does extend beyond OIC but we hope it helps build on top of our monthly summary.

Book Birthday

I had an interesting conversation today, where it was pointed out to me that our book Implementing Oracle Integration Cloud Service, the first ever Oracle PaaS book is five years old today (according to Amazon). This website was also five years old back in August last year.

While some parts of the UI have become more sophisticated than shown in the book, and the choice of adaptors has grown significantly the core fundamentals of the book still hold true.

Of course the book is only as good as the technology, and Oracle Integration continues to fly in the Gartner Magic Quadrant.

So Happy Birthday us, and congratulations Oracle, and thankyou to our readers.
