Oracle joins the cloud-integration party late, but says its wizard-driven SOA Suite will appeal where on-premises apps prevail. Oracle introduced the Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com on Thursday, vowing that it won’t be too little, too late when it comes to cloud application integration.
Kicking off an initiative to better bridge cloud services with its own software, Oracle has released an adapter that allows organizations to copy data between their Salesforce.com accounts and Oracle software. ”We’re encapsulating standard Web services calls into easier-to-use adapters,” said Demed L’Her, Oracle vice president of product management. The Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce is an extension of the Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle’s software for integrating enterprise applications through the use of Web services standards.
