In recent years, many customers have preferred Oracle Primavera P6 EPPM applications on the cloud. It saves them from typical deployment and system administration tasks of creating databases, hosting servers, configuring supporting technologies, and integrating supported applications.

One of the most pertaining questions asked by new and existing customers alike is – how easy it is to integrate Oracle Primavera P6 EPPM applications on the cloud with other application?

Let us look at this in more detail.

Most of the time cloud customers do not have in-house IT staff to maintain infrastructure or a team of programmers. Their requirements are often small and specific like:

  • automating calculation or rolling up some UDF data
  • performing certain task conditionally
  • perform certain task periodically for which there is no schedule/background job available
  • other custom functionality more specific to their organization
  • exchanging data with other application

Being a cloud customer, they often think that it is not possible to have a solution around it without spending a significant amount of money on servers and license cost of related software. They are also concerned with ongoing cost of maintaining and monitoring the infrastructure. So, they end up using excel or similar tool and maintain data manually. This comes with its own set of issues like human error, redundant data, etc.

Well, there is a relatively simple solution to all this and much more – Serverless Architecture.

Use AWS Lambda to run integration code with zero administration. AWS Lambda is a serverless compute service that allows to run code without provisioning or managing servers, creating workload-aware cluster scaling logic, maintaining event integrations, or managing run-times. AWS Lambda in conjunction with other services like Amazon S3, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon API Gateway, can be used to run specific integration code.

Oracle Primavera P6 EPPM provides web services. These web services can be consumed in the integration solution to meet business requirement. The integration solution can be hosted on AWS Lambda to perform the desired operation at specific time and frequency.

If you have a similar requirement and want to discuss how serverless architecture can be utilized effectively, then drop an email to Sachin directly at sgupta@projectp.com.

Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle Unifier Integration Framework

Project Partners implemented this solution for a large metropolitan transportation, and on-premise Oracle EBS customer.

The project consisted of the customer implementing Oracle Unifier cloud a few months prior. They were looking for an effective solution to load actuals transactions from on-premise Oracle EBS to Oracle Unifier cloud. They had created a business process in Oracle Unifier for actuals transaction and enabled for integration.

The customer did have one simple requirement. They needed a scalable solution to load eligible actuals transaction from on-premise Oracle EBS to Oracle Unifier cloud daily using a REST API.

As the project moved forward, we conducted our due diligence and dug deeper so we could identify a few more items that needed to be appropriately addressed:

  • Ability to introduce new attributes in the integration equilibrium which may require updating all transactions in Unifier with the data from EBS.
  • Avoid duplicate transactions.
  • Capable to identifying and create/update transactions and in rare scenario delete transactions from Unifier to keep it always in sync with Oracle EBS.

After reviewing various options with customer, they agreed on the framework shown below:

  1. Utilize Oracle EBS concurrent request to populate data daily in a staging table.
  2. Pull data from Oracle Unifier cloud in staging table.
  3. Compare the data in two staging tables to identify new and modified data.
  4. Call Oracle Unifier Rest API to process the data.

Noted advantages of this framework:

  • Scalable – It can easily process a volume of 100,000 transactions daily.
  • Automated – It can identify new vs modified data and discard data that do not require change.
  • Extensible – New attributes introduced for integration, can be easily populated for all existing transactions in Oracle Unifier Cloud.
