  4. 4. Agenda • The Value of SOA and your ROI • What is Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)? • SOA Technology Overview • KBACE Applied SOA Strategy • Customer Case Studies • Implementing SOA • Oracle Application Integration Architecture • Questions and Answers 4 © 2009 KBACE Technologies, Inc.
  5. 5. The Value of SOA Protect your investment and optimize usage of the existing infrastructure while extending capabilities that adapt to changing business needs. •How is it done? By deploying business processes across new and existing heterogeneous systems, applications, etc. 5 © 2009 KBACE Technologies, Inc.
  6. 6. Optimization = Return on Investment (ROI) Applied SOA effectively aligns your current corporate business strategies with your IT business model, optimizing the integration of the Oracle E-Business Suite with your current systems and processes. Immediate ROI benefits include: •Existing assets are reused or repurposed Go green while investing less capital in the latest technology •Simplify business processes from multiple sources •Cut demands on IT staff •Achieve platform independence through hot-pluggable architecture •Reduce complexity •Seamlessly integrate new applications •Respond quickly to business needs Implement market responsive delivery on-the-fly 6 © 2009 KBACE Technologies, Inc.
  7. 7. What is SOA? •Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) starts with creating services that can communicate with each other •A service is essentially: a unit of information that a system/application has to offer or a transaction that a system/application can process 7 © 2009 KBACE Technologies, Inc.

  13. 13. KBACE Advanced Technology Strategy – Applied SOA • KBACE is a system integrator for Oracle E-Business Suite E-Business Suite invariably needs to share information with other systems • The Advanced Technology Group identifies and provides solutions for the most commonly used business practices o Provide a need based solution, not technology for technology’s sake o Identify clear targets for adaption o Build the framework piece by piece o Start with adapting key prioritized business processes – usually off of E-Business Suite information o Extend adoption Once critical targets are adapted, KBACE will identify other opportunities for ROI 13 © 2009 KBACE Technologies, Inc.
  14. 14. Applied SOA – Case Study 1 Business Challenge – A major Electronic Manufacturing company needed to optimize its Employee On-Boarding process Employee hiring process was fairly complicated as it was a common process and conducted globally • Over 50,000 employees worldwide • Included various third-party firms that served either as recruiters or background verifiers • Approval requirements were beyond what Oracle HCM systems gave by default 14 © 2009 KBACE Technologies, Inc.
  15. 15. Applied SOA – Case Study 1 Solutions Presented (traditional and new technology): • Build individual interfaces and AME workflows across departments; including various third-party firms that served as recruiters or background verifiers • Manual data entries at key points such as interaction with third-parties • SOA Solution incorporating the process Benefits of the SOA Solutions over traditional technology: • Links various processes together • Changes external vendors without rewriting lots of code • Routes flows based on location and filtering conditions • Provides human intervention steps without extending the HR implementation scope 15 © 2009 KBACE Technologies, Inc.

  17. 17. Applied SOA – Case Study 2 Business Challenge – A major Retailer / Manufacturer needed to integrate its Order Entry, Fulfillment and Delivery systems Complex integration requirements with respect to integrating various systems for different functions of Order Management • Third-party Order Entry integrated with Oracle Order Management • Order fulfillment done through manufacturing plants across the globe • Complex routing system dependent upon type of merchandise and geography • Order delivery done through several third-party vendors depending on location and method of delivery 17 © 2009 KBACE Technologies, Inc.
  18. 18. Applied SOA – Case Study 2 Solutions Presented (traditional and new technology): • Integrate/Rewrite the third-party Order Entry system directly to Oracle EBS o Drive Order Entry directly using Order Management APIs • Build batch jobs and interfaces for Manufacturing system • Build specific interfaces to third-party delivery vendors • SOA Solution Benefits of the SOA Solution over traditional technology: • Integrates existing Order Entry system without rewriting application • Enables complex routing to manufacturing systems based on user managed routing rules • Provides a common integration point to all third-party delivery service vendors using complex routing rules • Implemented Business Activity Monitoring (BAM); Optimized key business processes as a result 18 © 2009 KBACE Technologies, Inc.
