We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The ability to stand up a highly available SOA Suite, which has full DR capabilities, in a remote center and synchronize the databases using Data Guard.We were able to scale out using multiple application and web servers balanced by hardware load balancers and Weblogic clustering.The most valuable feature of this solution is the option to design, and the development can happen at the same time.The product allows you to visualize how a company is working currently by providing rich possibilities for analysis such as the audit trails and therefore shows where improvements might be valuable.Middleware jobs developing for EC, ERP, and shipping systems become easier.Enables our Product Manager to post products to different outside EC platforms with only one interface and one process.

The program is scalable.The solution is very scalable. It's easy to add processes even if you are new to the solution.Scalability on the solution is great. It's very very easy to scale.The feature that I have found to be the most valuable is the ease of deployment.A valuable feature is its integration with Oracle Database.It easily connects to other Oracle products and services.

Cons
Various parts of SOA, BPEL, and so on, each have their own consoles which need to be accessed individually with different logins. It would be better from an admin perspective if all the consoles were accessible via a single login.If the disk space expansion can be made more flexible, not requiring a database restart, it would be a major benefit.The Maven integration in JDeveloper is very basic and might be enhanced to allow the proper use of Maven.The installation and adjustment process seems too complex.

I think the support could be much better.The solution needs to share more information in terms of training. There needs to be more documentation involved to help those who are completely new to the product.The licensing for the solution is pretty expensive. It may be the most expensive solution, if you were to compare it to the competition.This solution would benefit from the inclusion of a ripple start function for clusters.This solution doesn't have connectors to other external applications.

Pricing and Cost Advice
This product is WebLogic based, hence it can be both resource hungry as well as expensive from a licensing point of view.It is necessary to evaluate the requirement regarding the platform usage and what the main operation area of the platform will be.

Overview

Oracle SOA Suite is a comprehensive, standards-based software suite to build, deploy and manage integration following the concepts of service-oriented architecture (SOA). The components of the suite benefit from consistent tooling, a single deployment and management model, end-to-end security and unified metadata management. Oracle SOA Suite helps businesses lower costs by allowing maximum re-use of existing IT investments and assets, regardless of the environment (OS, application server, etc.) they run in, or the technology they were built upon. Its easy-to-use, re-use focused, unified application development tooling and end-to-end lifecycle management support further reduces development and maintenance cost and complexity.
