If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Oracle Integration Cloud Service, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
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 considered, it's a fairly good platform. Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give Oracle Integration Cloud Service a rating of seven. If they improved the amount of support and resources available, I would give them a higher rating.

I would rate Oracle Integration Cloud Service a nine out of ten. It basically works.
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.
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.
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.
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 have the right partner with the right skillsets. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
I would rate it a six out of ten. They need to add more features and better integration.
We mostly use the private cloud deployment model. I would recommend that new users not just dump all the data streams into the tool. Rather they should start small and then scale it depending on the use cases. I would rate the solution seven out of ten. It's one of the very good counter price integration tools available on the cloud right now.
Look carefully at the adaptors, they aren't always fully featured when announced.
