There was lot many news for Oracle AIA this year during OOW ,as foundation pack announcment was made by Charles Phillips in his OOW's keynote during this gala event.Since then this was a huge interest in the subject.

In April this year the first announcement for the AIA was made which was industry-specific business process templates (BPMN) to provide Industry Reference Models (IRM), Oracle EBS, Siebel and Oracle Applications products between the actual move business processes (BPEL) to provide Process Integration Packs (PIP) from it.

Lets take a quick look what is all about and what's makes so hot?

What is Oracle AIA Technology?

This is a framework in which the functionality of Oracle's vast application portfolio - Oracle E-Business, PeopleSoft, Siebel, and JD Edwards - can be recombined and tailored to enterprise needs.

In simple words :A smart integration mechanism , that can support & intergrate the whole bunch of oracle products with EBS or non-EBS products(like SAP) and in this middleware is used to stitching .

The AIA has three components:

  • Industry reference models. These are best practice guides so that the final deployed processes are optimized.
  • Processes Integration Packs which contain out the necessary code to create business process required without risk.
  • Pre built SOA that will run out of the box on Fusion middleware.

Oracle have now published a foundation pack which is series of templates and vanilla processes which can be adopted by a 3rd party to meet their requirements.

Technical products inside Application Integration Architecture

  1. BPEL Process Manager
  2. BPEL Repository
  3. E-Business Suite
  4. Siebel
  5. Adapters
  6. Oracle Warehouse Builder

The latest version comprised of the following products

  • Siebel CRM to Portal Billing - Siebel CRM, FMW, BRM & EBS/Oracle Financials
  • Portal Billing to General Ledger - Siebel CRM, FMW, BRM & EBS/Oracle Financials

Summary

Automating business processes across the application running at multiple plaform is normally a very laborious, complex ,costly and time consuming task.Hoping ,AIA seeks to simplify this process and make it more seamless.

    Is AIA a technology. As per my understanding AIA is an Integration Architecture. Please correct me if I am wrong!!!!!!

  2. Ahmed Aboulnaga Says:

    To respond to the last post, AIA is indeed an integration architecture, but it also delivers a series of canonicals (EBOs), pre-built integration packs (PIPs), a testing tool (CAVS), an error handling framework, and a business service repository (BSR).

  3. Kevin Says:

    Just throwing a statement in the middle here:
    I believe the canonicals are overengineered and I believe that creating your own CDM is far better then trying to map to this monsters of industry specific xml-messages (EBOs).
    If you are using the foundation pack, why not creating your own cdm’s instead of going in agony and trying to map those monsters? You are creating your services anyway. (Ok, for the PIP’s but not ok for the foundation packs)
    krgds,
    Kevin

    If it is easy to make the EBO & EBS then it’s really good…. but I think we will have to make EBM, EBO & EBS for that
