Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Integration (OIC)

Oracle Integration (OIC) is used to integrate different systems successfully. All the interfaces from and to Oracle HCM Cloud are managed through Oracle Integration (OIC). It resolves our reasons for manual intervention and provides fewer issues or errors with the integrations. There are many built-in adapters that can be used as is to integrate with those systems. Oracle Integration (OIC) is used across many different departments, connecting many enterprise-level applications.
  • 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.
  • Need to include more adapters.
  • Only connections of same adapter type can be replaced.
  • Speed on the cloud servers is sometimes slow.
  • No need to spend on SFTP servers and maintenance.
  • Faster integrations with prebuilt adapters for SaaS customers provide high ROI and reduced project completion time.
  • The pricing model is very competitive and gets billed for hourly consumption.

Overall, the knowledge and skills you learn through the process of preparing for certification would give you confidence and personal satisfaction. It would also increase your job performance and your ability to search for the right job. Some companies even define the pay based on your certifications and skill set. Overall it would be a value add and have a positive impact on your professional image.
The system integrator/implementation partner we used while implementing the Oracle technology for our organization is Kbace. We initially identified all the requirements and had the proper solutions in place, which resulted in smooth implementation. UAT was performed in house, and we were able to train our end users to use the system effectively.

Oracle Integration (OIC) is well suited where you have multiple inbound and outbound interfaces connecting to various systems. No coding is needed and it's very user intuitive. Oracle Integration (OIC) is less appropriate if it doesn't have the adapter for a particular system you are planning to integrate with. EDI integration is not supported. It is also not suited if all your applications are maintained in single system, as there won't be a need for integration.
