Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Integration (OIC)

Oracle Integration is used to bridge both Oracle and non-Oracle cloud services through API services. For example, Oracle Integration bridges a Oracle Cloud database with a custom Java API service gateway. The JSON from the Java API service gateway is then also called by Oracle Integration to be passed to an Oracle JET application for the front end.
  • Incredibly easy to create integrations for beginner coders.
  • Very flexible online user interface requires no powerful client to run.
  • Inbuilt connections for common Oracle tools.
  • It is very obviously Oracle and Oracle partner orientated.
  • Hanging issues, as well as other quirks plague the online UI.
  • Not currently available as a free trial the last time I looked.
  • Saved an incredible amount of time compared to developing the integrations ourselves, resulting in a massive ROI.
  • Prebuilt connectors for Oracle Fusion and JET had a positive effect too.
  • Creating custom connection for the Java API Gateway took a while but was reusable.
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.

I think Oracle Integration Cloud should be used for more often when considering integration services. As someone who now works in the RPA space, where often bots call, translate and send API requests with extremely high licensing costs - Oracle Integration Cloud would be a better fit. Environments where prebuilt connectors or where there's no API, webhook or other tool to call, OIC is not the correct tool to use.
