Oracle has rolled out cloud adapters – including one for Salesforce.com – aimed at helping enterprises more easily and effective integrate their on-premises and cloud apps.
Oracle Cloud Adapters are supported by Oracle SOA Suite, the industry’s most complete and unified application integration solution, and help customers integrate with cloud applications.
This unified integration approach between on-premises and cloud applications reduces the time, cost and complexity of application integration projects. It helps customers lower total cost of ownership by simplifying integration, consolidating toolkits and reducing maintenance costs.
Oracle Cloud Adapters minimize challenges often associated with session management, resulting in improved performance and increased efficiency.
To securely exchange data between Oracle SOA Suite and Salesforce.com, Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com leverages the Credential Store Framework, which prevents confidential credentials from being exchanged over the network.
Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com simplifies cloud integration, reducing manual integration processes and maintenance costs by introducing a standardized wizard-based solution for integrating applications, whether in the cloud or on-premises.
By dramatically reducing the number of manual and customized steps with Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com, integration development time can be reduced by half when compared to traditional methods.
“Until now, organizations have relied on a mix of integration tools, each focusing on either cloud or on-premise applications,” said Demed L’Her, vice president of product management, Oracle. “With Oracle Cloud Adapters, Oracle has extended our commitment to simplifying and securing key applications by unifying the integration experience between cloud and on-premises applications. Oracle will continue to release additional out-of-the-box adapters with Oracle SOA Suite to help customers better connect to cloud applications.”
