Oracle Application Integration Architecture (AIA) is a complete integration solution for orchestrating agile, user-centric business processes across enterprise applications. AIA offers prebuilt solutions at the data, process and user interface levels, delivering a complete process solution to business end users. All of the AIA components are designed to work in a mix-and-match fashion. They are built for configurability, ultimately helping to lower IT costs and the burden of building, extending and maintaining integrations. For many organizations that have heterogeneous application landscapes with multiple Oracle applications, this is welcome news.
