- great when you need to integrate applications without any message lost or duplicated and when transnationality is important - if you need the highest throughput possible and not much (or not at all) mapping is required, a system like Kafka is more appropriate

Oracle
For all type of integration except those with a huge volume. It can deal with 20MB of transactions and processing of 1GB file when a file is being read using file or FTP adapters. It cannot be used for EDI as this support is not there. OICS is a perfect fit for other integration and is best when a customer has Oracle applications in the landscape. It is even greater if you have a requirement to create a custom form and make use of Process Cloud. All of these work very well together seamlessly. API needs can be handled by APIary.

Pros
IBM
  • Just the ability to display and consume data through a single dashboard makes this a great application for our business purposes.
  • With the ability to consume their exposed API, data validation and manipulation becomes a breeze.

  • Auto-association of Oracle applications prepopulates the application connector select box and preconfigures Oracle Integration (OIC) using secure credential access for faster integration.
  • Various other system connectors are available to use readily.
  • User-intuitive experience--Connectors, integrators, and dashboard can be seen on one page.

Cons
IBM
  • The development and the transformation capability is not so great. I believe IBM is looking to incorporate some of features of IBM APP Connect into API Connect.
  • The authentications features are no way close to CA API Management (f.k.a Laye r7).
  • The development experience is not as good as Apigee's.
  • The GUI should be improved. Maybe the product team should see the other API management tools in their offering.

  • Currently, it is not retaining the logs for more than 3 days, which it needs to address.
  • We also need some functionality inside the interface to re-push the same transaction again so that it will be helpful while testing and fixing the issue.
  • Also, some log errors are not giving the correct details. Oracle needs to rectify those.

It is the best on-premise application to cloud integration in the market. I guess IBM is planning to integrate IBM App Connect with the IBM API Connect solution.

Usability
IBM
You can do some really powerful things with this system. The overall design is an attempt to make configurable some of the routine tasks/common functionality, but allow for development/customization of the core of the application.

Support is good, however it takes longer than expected to get responses. When bugs are reported they often seem to fall into a black hole.

We did not select Cast Iron as our iPaaS solution, it was the weakest competitor in the field that we evaluated. Our experience was that it was not nearly as easy to learn, without in-depth training and guidance, and the developer UI was extremely buggy. We subjected each of the vendors to a battery of integrations, from simple to challenging, and it fell short on each one. One of the most simple integrations was grabbing a CSV file from an FTP source, parsing the data, doing a small amount of transformation, then inserting that data into an Azure MSSQL DB. After 2 hours on the phone with the Cast Iron support team, we were still unable to get this working.

The nearest thing I have used to OIC is UiPath, as it is often used as a tool to integrate software together. However, it is much more suited to legacy software which have little to no API endpoints. If the infrastructure already exists I understand why people use RPA for integration, however for when API's are easily accessible and you're using Oracle tools, OIC is better.

Oracle
  • Created a solution for unique business integration with minimal processing times
  • Saves my team about 7 hours per week because of how it communicates with all the information. Because it communicates faster, and because there's a lot of information to communicate with, another solution might not work.
