Oracle SOA Suite

Implementing Oracle SOA Suite

Joeri Terlouw: With support for Oracle SOA Suite 10g having expired and 11g entering its final phase, many organizations are ready to migrate to 12c. This gives you a unique opportunity to integrate new software and applications. The data format JSON, for example, makes it possible to integrate new applications, while adapters improve support for cloud-based applications.

Advantages

At Qualogy, we've noticed that more organizations are starting to see the advantages of Oracle SOA Suite. They understand that separating their process logic and business logic supports necessary changes to the IT architecture.

Implementation

A common question during the implementation phase is whether to use Oracle Service Bus (OSB) and a canonical data model (CDM). A CDM requires a consensus on business objects and the OSB provides the necessary virtualization. In many situations, combining Oracle SOA Suite with OSB and CDM can result in long-term advantages.

If organizations want to exchange bulk messages, files and data with other organizations without sharing the underlying processes, tools like Managed File Transfer (MFT), Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) and Oracle Service Bus (OSB) are worth considering. Our clients often require these integrated services in their Oracle SOA Suite.

Architecture

The quality of the underlying architecture is extremely important. It is particularly important when SOA Suite is paired with E-Business Suite, for example. Qualogy can draw on the capabilities of its in-house experts, who exchange knowledge and information and ensure short lines of communication.

Knowledge exchange

By actively sharing knowledge about Oracle Fusion Middleware, we can support our clients in all matters concerning Oracle SOA Suite. This includes designing the right Oracle WebLogic Server and using Oracle Service Bus.

Advice

My colleagues and I look forward to helping you make the most of Oracle SOA Suite for your business processes. We can help you create a realistic implementation or migration plan that takes into account any challenges you may encounter along the way. Sometimes, theoretical possibilities are not practically feasible. In this case, we'll suggest alternatives that can help you realize your goals and ambitions.

Step-by-step

We carry out the implementation and migration phase using the Scrum framework. This means working step-by-step to achieve the desired situation and making adjustments as we go. We always work closely with our clients during this process and make sure the organization knows how to use the new environment. Targeted training programs not only teach users how to exploit these new opportunities, they also help to determine the success of the implementation.
