ERP integration in a week Using Oracle SOA Cloud Service

The customer, a multinational heating solutions company have recently acquired another manufacturing organisation. With this acquisition, the customer has now two desperate ERP systems: Oracle JD Edwards and Infor M3. While the strategic future state requirements are to merge the functionalities in M3 into Oracle JD Edwards, there is a pressing requirement for a robust integration platform to integrate these two systems.

To achieve quick provisioning of the platform, the customer has chosen Oracle SOA Cloud Service, and is seeking LimePoint’s expertise with the design and development of SOA composites for the integration with M3, as well as review and configuration of a SDLC pipeline.
