With Oracle Integration, you have the power to automate business processes, connect your cloud and on-premises applications, build great web and mobile applications, collect advanced metrics about your business, and get real-time analytics. The feature set for your Oracle Integration depends on two factors: which edition you’re using (Enterprise or Standard) and who’s managing your cloud environment (you or Oracle). Let’s explore all the features that may be available to you.
Processes: Automate Business Processes
Use Processes to rapidly design, automate, and manage business processes in the cloud.
You begin by creating a process application from scratch, by using a QuickStart App, or by importing a file. Next, you model your process flow, including the requests, approvals, decision paths, and roles for each task. Depending on the business process, you may need to create web forms, add decision models, and interact with web services to send and receive data.
At any point when you’re designing your process application, you can play your process step-by-step to test each possible scenario. When you’re ready, activate the process application to make it available, and assign roles to grant users access to your application.
Integrations: Connect Applications
Use Integrations to connect your applications into a continuous business flow. You can quickly develop and activate integrations between both your applications that live in the cloud and your applications that still live on premises.
Identify the applications that you want to integrate, and configure the connection details for each application. You can also select from our portfolio of 50+ pre-built adapters to connect with Oracle and third-party applications, such as Oracle Sales Cloud, Oracle Service Cloud, Google Calendar, Salesforce, and SAP.
Use browser-based visual tools to create integrations, and then map the data between your applications. Mappings can range from simple data assignments to complex expressions.
Activate your integration when you’re ready.
Monitor the dashboard to check the status and processing statistics for an integration. The dashboard also measures and tracks the performance of your transactions by capturing and reporting key information.
Visual Builder: Develop Applications
With Visual Builder, you can build great web and mobile applications yourself. There is no coding, no setup, and no IT resources required.
Just use the visual drag-and-drop designer and the full palette of user interface components to build applications as simple or as intricate as you need. The built-in page templates implement best practices in design. In addition, the user interface adjusts to the native look and feel of your iOS or Android operating system so building applications optimized for mobile devices is easy as well.
Visual Builder provides all the necessary tools for building and publishing a modern web application as well as providing the infrastructure for securing access to your application, data, and the Oracle Cloud services that your application consumes.
Integration Insight: Collect Advanced Metrics
Integration Insight is available in Oracle Integration Classic (user-managed) only.
Integration Insight dramatically simplifies the process of modeling and extracting meaningful business metrics.
You can quickly collect advanced metrics and gain insight into your existing processes and integrations in three steps:
Define your most important milestones and metrics.
Map your milestones to appropriate components in your applications. The simple web-based tools make this task easy.
You can view the dashboards that are available immediately after you activate Integration Insight and monitor your business in real time, using charts and tables. You can search for business data that matters to you, create new customized dashboards on the fly, and drill down to see what makes your business tick.
Stream Analytics: Get Real-Time Analytics
Stream Analytics allows for the creation of custom operational dashboards that provide real-time monitoring and analyses of event streams. You can identify events of interest, execute queries against those event streams in real-time, and drive operational dashboards or raise alerts based on that analysis. The streaming data can originate from many different data sources including web applications, log files, internet of things (IoT) sensors, point-of-sale devices, automated teller machines (ATMs), and social media.
