ICS stands for Integration Cloud Services. What does this acronym mean for us? Firstly, that ICS is an Integration platform as a Service (iPaaS), focused on Cloud, a field where Oracle is playing the leading role.
In one sentence, what is ICS capable of?
ICS allow us to deploy, manage, configure and integrate applications and services.
Key features of ICS
- Support cloud and on-prem applications.
Think about a scenario where the applications you usually work with are on-prem, not remote. ICS is for you too.
ICS is targeted for cloud to cloud and cloud to on-prem or vice versa type of integration.
- Simplified look and feel.
First time you log into ICS, a fresh, web-based appearance is what you will find foremost appealing.
- Native connectivity via Adapters.
Oracle Integration Cloud Service provide you with a set of predefined adapters (Oracle Sales Cloud, Oracle Eloqua Cloud, Oracle RightNow Cloud are the best well-known) which define the type of connection we are creating.
This way we are only configuring the connection, but in any case coding. Also, the amount of groundwork needed is been diminished.
- Custom made Adapters
Choose among one of the available adapters and configure them as you like, therefore you could create and use this custom made connections.
Lastly,the monitoring tool. It allow you to preview all kind of information with regard to Integrations, for instance, the number of messages or processes sent and received, how many of them end up with an error or how many are sent successfully. We could see aswell the log registry files for every one of the processes; what we call Tracking.
A few possibilities where ICS can be useful:
- Integration across oracle SaaS applications. For instance, creation of seamless interaction between customers and employee facing apps.
- Integrate Oracle on-prem applications with Oracle Cloud.
- Extend the Oracle Cloud by integrating gap applications. This market is constantly growing. Currently there is more than 300 applications in the Oracle Marketplace.
- Integration across Clouds: Salesforce.com, Workday, SAP, NetSuite…
- Integrate new PaaS applications.
