Pricing Advice

What users are saying about Oracle Integration Cloud Service pricing:
  • "In the case of Oracle Integration Cloud, costs can be "predictable" as far as the platform and infrastructure are concerned."
  • "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."

Good flow design interface, scalable, and provides a good variety of connectors

What is our primary use case?

The main use case is "systems integration" for my company's enterprise customers across many different industry sectors. One of our customer projects that use Oracle Integration Cloud or OIC iPaaS is ERP to e-commerce integration. Integration flows were developed for keeping product inventory, prices, addresses in sync between various end-systems. Additional non-functional goals were maintainability, stability, scalability, graceful error-handling, and "predictable performance". The predictability has been verified via repeatable testing and seamless operation in production. Additionally, we… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "Configurable timeouts on each connection would be good."

Integration between Oracle and SAP is very beneficial for our needs; lacks a fully fledged workflow feature

What is our primary use case?

Our use case is for its different modular compartments. We have different target integrations with different applications such as Ariba, Concur, Workday, where we're using the connectors to connect to those applications. We're using both mechanisms and lookups and the database systems that come with OIC. We've started our DVC simple config and have integrated that database. We pulled from Ariba and Concur and pushed it into the database and we've done some mappings and changes. We're exploring more features of OIC to see what else we can use. Right now it is in lookups connections and… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The out-of-box integration between Oracle and SAP is really beneficial"
  • "The solution doesn't currently have a fully fledged workflow feature like they have in OIM."

What other advice do I have?

In general, the solution is functioning well. We already have Informatica Cloud established and we've been using it for a few years as our integration tool. We bought PaaS specificlaly for this project. Our challenge now is to test the comparison between Informative Cloud and PaaS. Informatica is a set price whereas PaaS has the meter running every time the database is extended in the virtual machine. On the other hand PaaS has the front client, the workflow, Ariba, everything. We're still evaluating. I would rate this solution a seven out of 10.

Good mapping, very user friendly, and easy to maintain

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for integration with SAP, for its specs and factors and for integration with Oracle applications.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's very easy to get started on the solution. It's also easy to maintain, scale, and integrate according to cost factors."
  • "Oracle-based automation blueprints for the majority of the integrations would be helpful to have in a future release."

What other advice do I have?

We mostly use the public cloud deployment model, but it depends on the requirements of the client. I'd advise others that they need to be really clear on what integrations they need and the complexity of the integrations their client requires. As long as users identify the source target systems and the integration pattern that they would like to put in place, they will be fine. This needs to be the first step, so users may need a longer implementation phase. It would help provide a quicker outcome for them if they put the work in upfront. Those implementing the solution need to ensure they…

User-friendly, easy to customize, and good integration with other prodcuts

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and we integrate Oracle solutions for our customers. The Oracle Cloud Integration Cloud Service is one of the platforms that we are now working with, in collaboration with a local company.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the ease of customization."
  • "Our client was quite concerned about the cost, which is something that could be reduced."

What other advice do I have?

This is a good product and I recommend it. My advice to anybody who is implementing Oracle Integration Cloud Service is to attend oracle University for training or at least some seminars before getting started. It is best to have some level of preparation. There is a lot of planning and discussion that takes place prior to implementation. Overall, we are pretty happy with the product. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Featured great file utilities but lacked proper support and resources

What is our primary use case?

We had a lot of integration between our On-Premise Systems and the Oracle ERP Cloud. We used it in that context.

Pros and Cons

  • "In general, there were a lot of great utilities for working with files."
  • "The support and resources were lacking — they weren't there."

What other advice do I have?

When comparing AWS to the Oracle Cloud, I don't see an equivalent platform. There is no ESB as such currently on AWS. AWS has a lot of other services like a queuing service, national servers, SQL Servers, etc. If you want to integrate with Oracle and SAS applications, then this is a pretty good solution. On the flip side, OIC has a limited number of resources, including support — there are just one or two courses to go by. I wasn't happy with the instructions that we received and the number of materials and resources; it made it hard for us to learn how to properly use it. All things…

A stable solution that provides the ease of promotion and connection management and has a number of pre-built connectors

What is our primary use case?

We are a system integrator, and Oracle Integration Cloud Service is one of the solutions we work with. We also work with other vendor solutions such as Apache Camel. We provide solutions depending on the environment and preferences of our customers. I am basically connecting a number of backend systems or creating the API backends for shipping, e-commerce, and ERP integrations. There are a number of use cases, such as product price updates to e-commerce, pricing and inventory information, ERP backend, and e-commerce front end.

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Oracle Integration Cloud Service a nine out of ten. It basically works.

It is simple to create SOAP and REST end points and integrate with them. Deep integration into Oracle applications making it easy to establish event driven integration.

What is our primary use case?

Integration of SaaS solutions that form systems of reference. Exposing simplified APIs to digital front ends. Expoit its deep integration to Oracle apps and SaaS so we can have event driven integration. Take advantage of the rich catalogue of prebuilt integration adaptors covering RPA, SAP, Salesforce, ServiceNow etc etc Integration of cloud & on-premises solutions (hybrid model) supporting secured remote access to on-premises data sources.

What other advice do I have?

Look carefully at the adaptors, they aren't always fully featured when announced.

Great professional services but need to make tools framework available for implementation partners

What is our primary use case?

It is doing great. It has its own loopholes and that's where there is an opportunity for implementation partners like us. If the product was perfect, then probably there wouldn't be a place for implementation partners. So in fact, it's not the features that attract us, but the lack of features in something like Oracle Integration Cloud leaves some room for leads implementation partners like us, some room for custom implementation services. For example, the supply chain part of the solution is not completely available for the customer as a turnkey solution so we have a role to play in terms of… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The lack of features in something like Oracle Integration Cloud leaves some room for leads implementation partners like us"
  • "They need to make tools framework available for implementation partners"

What other advice do I have?

It works for basic stuff but if you're looking for a turnkey solution, Oracle Integration Cloud would not work. So it all depends on how heavily customized you are within the application that you already have. And there is no customization inside. You need an integration partner. That is well worth it. Your own customization has a license, Oracle Integration Cloud. I would rate Oracle Integration Cloud at a six on a scale out of ten.
