Oracle is getting into the market for cloud integration tools with Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com, which makes use of the firm's Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) Suite to help integrate data between the cloud and on-premise applications.
Announcing the tool, Oracle said it has developed Oracle Cloud Adapters to enable organisations to integrate on-premise business applications with new software-as-a-service (SaaS) cloud applications, without the need for a niche cloud-integration platform.
Instead, Oracle sees its existing SOA Suite as the ideal platform for the job, and with the right Cloud Adapters for specific applications, provides a single integration platform to unify cloud and on-premise applications, the firm said.
Oracle vice president of product management Demed L'Her said in a statement that Oracle plans to release additional out-of-the-box adapters with Oracle SOA Suite to help customers better connect to cloud applications.
"Until now, organisations have relied on a mix of integration tools, each focusing on either cloud or on-premise applications. 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," he said.
Oracle claims that this approach reduces the time, cost and complexity of application integration projects. Its Cloud Adapters introduce a standardised wizard-based solution for integrating applications, whether in the cloud or on-premise, the firm said.
Additionally, Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com uses the firm's Credential Store Framework to securely exchange data between the cloud and Oracle SOA Suite, preventing confidential credentials from being exchanged over the network.
