Today one of the biggest challenges for your IT department is to support and support the different types of platforms that their customers are using. To solve this challenge a service-oriented architecture (SOA) will enable processes to communicate through loosely coupled software interfaces.
It is important to integrate cloud applications with on-site applications. Cloud applications and business applications each have their own integration requirements and APIs often do not speak well to each other. Integrating becomes even more difficult when working with different clouds because each cloud may have different APIs. Unless there is a way to bridge the gap, integrating this data can be a real Cloud DevOps nightmare.
Oracle simplifies cloud integration by providing unified and comprehensive solutions for integrating uneven cloud and on-premises applications. Oracle Cloud Integration leverages components of Oracle Cloud Services as well as Oracle SOA, BPM, and data integration technologies.
Today there is a plethora of devices that allow users to access applications. The problem comes in the ability to seamlessly serve these various platforms. For a user, it does not matter which device or whether they use Windows, iOS, Android or any other operating system or browser, they should still have the same experience. The difficulty lies in the fact that each platform may require a special API to work properly and communicate properly and SOA can bridge the gap.
Internet of things
The increasing use of smart embedded devices – Internet of Things – requires a middleware capable of handling the integration between the device and the software it is attempting to use. The discovery of the services and on-demand provisioning of a large number of network and resource-limited devices requires the right infrastructure to handle network traffic. An SOA-based approach enables the implementation of standards using loosely coupled services and interfaces.
APIs are not always standardized across applications. By enabling developers to create standard interfaces between applications and services, Oracle SOA streamlines application integration. Developers can create an agile and reusable connectivity layer, thus reducing the time to launch the product while reducing costs. It provides new enterprise solutions, whether the applications are based in the cloud or on on-premises servers.
As businesses work together to form partnerships, whether it is retail with wholesalers, agents with customers, third-party vendors with corporations, or any other business transaction, the flow of data and communication is required . When it comes to integrating software, hardware and applications, special technology is required for integration between corporations and other entities. Software is required to be able to communicate spontaneously under circumstances. In this case, Oracle’s B2B SOA creates an integrated platform for businesses that provides instance tracking, auditing, control, and security.

The Omni channel assumes that the customer can be anywhere.
The customer can use an Apple Watch, iPad, iPhone, work computer, personal computer and more devices and share his profile. The customer can also go to the store, or interact with a chat agent or make a call. Therefore any strategy that a retailer employs should facilitate a seamless relationship of the brand to its customers.
