OREANDA-NEWS. April 10, 2017. Oracle today announced that it has been named a leader in Gartner’s 2017 “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service” report1. We believe this recognition is another milestone which the company feels is due to the tremendous momentum and growth of Oracle Cloud Platform this year.

“We believe this recognition is another acknowledgement of Oracle’s strong momentum in the integration and larger PaaS sector, driven by the successful adoption of Oracle’s cloud platform offerings by thousands of customers,” said Amit Zavery, senior vice president, Oracle Cloud Platform and Middleware. “By successfully delivering a comprehensive iPaaS offering that provides an easy way to integrate any type of application, data, device and system, Oracle has given customers a powerful option to meet their ever evolving integration needs.”

Gartner positions vendors within a particular quadrant based on their ability to execute and completeness of vision.  According to the report, “leaders in this market have paid client numbers in the thousands for their iPaaS offerings, and often many thousands of indirect users via embedded versions of the platform as well as "freemium" options. They have a solid reputation, with notable market presence and a proven track record in enabling multiple integration use cases — often supported by the large global networks of their partners. Their platforms are well-proven and functionally rich, with regular releases to rapidly address this fast-evolving market.”

Oracle Cloud Platform, which includes Oracle’s iPaaS offerings, has experienced explosive growth, adding thousands of customers in fiscal year 2017. Global enterprises, SMBs, and ISVs are turning to Oracle Cloud Platform to build and run modern Web, mobile, and cloud-native applications. Continuing its commitment to its customers, Oracle has delivered more than 50 cloud services in the last two years.

Gartner views integration platform as a service (iPaaS) as providing “capabilities to enable subscribers (aka “tenants”) to implement data, application, API and process integration projects spanning cloud-resident and on-premises endpoints.” The report adds, “This is achieved by developing, deploying, executing, managing and monitoring “integration flows” (aka “integration interfaces”) — that is, integration applications bridging between multiple endpoints so that they can work together.”

Oracle’s iPaaS offerings include Oracle Integration Cloud Service and Oracle SOA Cloud Service, both part of the Oracle Cloud Platform. Oracle Integration Cloud is a simple and powerful integration platform targeting ad hoc integrators while Oracle SOA Cloud delivers a high-control platform for specialist integrators. Additionally, Oracle has many other cross-PaaS offerings that can be combined with Oracle’s iPaaS services to deliver greater productivity.  Those services include Oracle Self Service Integration for citizen integrators, Oracle Process Cloud for improved orchestration, Oracle Real-Time Integration Business Insight for business activity monitoring, Oracle API Platform Cloud for API management, Oracle Managed File Transfer Cloud for managed file transfer and Oracle IoT Cloud for IoT integration.
