We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Performance and flexibility-wise, they're very user-friendly."
"It has a number of pre-built connectors. Its flow designer is also valuable. It provides the ease of promotion between environments and the ease of connection management. It is also stable and easy to scale and deploy."
"The most important part would be the use of connectors. The significant number of cloud connectors available for active integration is its value."
"The most valuable feature is the ease of customization."
"OIC offers a number of pre-built technology and SaaS adapters for high productivity for a wide range of target systems, both in-house via agents and cloud/SaaS, via a very flexible range of interfaces."
"The out-of-box integration between Oracle and SAP is really beneficial"
"The lack of features in something like Oracle Integration Cloud leaves some room for leads implementation partners like us"
"It's very easy to get started on the solution. It's also easy to maintain, scale, and integrate according to cost factors."
"In general, there were a lot of great utilities for working with files."
"The initial setup was not very straightforward. Not complex, but not very simple either."
"The support and resources were lacking — they weren't there."
"It lacks configurable time-outs on connections. Configurable time-outs is an important nonfunctional property that it is currently missing. I have also written about it in an article, and I have also submitted some enhancement requests. Its visual designer could be a bit more responsive. It would also be good to get more XSLT editing capabilities."
"Configurable timeouts on each connection would be good."
"Oracle-based automation blueprints for the majority of the integrations would be helpful to have in a future release."
"They need to make tools framework available for implementation partners"
"Our client was quite concerned about the cost, which is something that could be reduced."
"The solution doesn't currently have a fully fledged workflow feature like they have in OIM."
"Now the platform is not built in a way that you can define."
"Comparatively, their prices are a little bit too high."
"It has different licensing models. The most upfront and most transparent is the pay-as-you-go model. It also has a certain messages-per-hour limit. There is a certain amount that is charged per hour, and a certain number of messages are included in it, which you can scale up as you go. Its licensing is very competent and easy."
"In the case of Oracle Integration Cloud, costs can be "predictable" as far as the platform and infrastructure are concerned."
