Oracle SOA Suite Review

Valuable Features

The integration possibilities with other Oracle Fusion middleware products is the most valuable feature of the SOA Suite solution.

Improvements to My Organization

I'm a contractor, so my client organizations are the ones who benefit from SOA Suite. With it, it's quite visible the number of both internal and external processes that are more integrated. Another organizational benefit is that less human intervention is required when running the suite of products in SOA.

Room for Improvement

Although the SOA Suite solutions integrate well with Oracle Fusion middleware products, it lacks similar integration with Enterprise Manager. This is something that, in my experience working with clients, is needed for SOA Suite to be a better product.

Use of Solution

Including its predecessors, we've been using SOA Suite since 2004.

Deployment Issues

There were no issues with the deployment.

Stability Issues

There were regular issues with the stability of SOA Suite, but they were fixed with help from Oracle technical support.

Scalability Issues

There have been no issues scaling it.

Customer Service and Technical Support

8/10

Previous Solutions

I work exclusively with Oracle software.

Initial Setup

Until version 10, the initial setup was cumbersome. Over the years and subsequent upgrades, with 11g setup became easier and, now, setting up with 12c is a walk in the park.

Implementation Team

I implement SOA Suite for my clients.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

You need to make a good estimate of the licensing costs for the first year.

I agree, SOA provides tremendous functionality to integrate heterogeneous environment. With time changing and having applications over cloud and on priem, SOA has bigger role to play.
