My latest post on the Oracle SOA and Fusion Middleware blogs discusses the various connectivity options for cloud to on-premise integration. A lot of emphasis has been put earlier on connectivity TO the cloud SaaS applications, and integration on the cloud (SaaS-to-SaaS or PaaS-to-SaaS). Connectivity FROM the cloud to on-premise is typically relegated as an after-thought, with the de-facto assumption being “we’ll just use VPN” to handle any firewall issues.
This post discusses the different approaches, VPN included, that you should consider when designing this inbound on-premise integration pattern. Read the full post here.
In addition, I will be at the SOA and Integration Demopods on Monday and Tuesday between 3pm-6pm.

Video Playlist: Oracle SOA Suite Cloud Integration
This is a YouTube playlist of all videos show casing the use of Oracle SOA Suite 11g for hybrid cloud integration i.e. SaaS to on-premise.
My post on the Oracle SOA blog shows you a detailed, step-by-step approach of using the Oracle SOA Suite to integrate with cloud applications, taking the Oracle RightNow Cloud Service as an example. It shows how you can take care of specific SaaS API considerations (security, polymorphic operations etc) and achieve a consistent integration strategy for your organization, whether it is A2A, B2B, cloud or mobile integration.
Visit the Oracle booth #608 at Cloud Connect next week (April 3 and April 4) to learn about how you can use Oracle SOA Suite to provide a comprehensive cloud integration solution. I will be at the booth on April 3rd starting at noon. Looking forward to see you there!
