Does your organization thrive on innovations leveraging cutting edge technologies? If yes, then you’ve probably already realized the mission critical importance of observability for the components fueling these innovations. Businesses using Oracle Fusion Apps, Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC), Oracle Database, and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure must adopt strategic practices to ensure efficiency, smooth operations, optimal performance, and robust security. Let’s break down these strategic domains and see how OCI Logging Analytics simplifies this for you.

The following is a 3-minute version of a technical webinar we are delivering on May 21st, 2024 at 10am PDT. The link to register for this free webinar is in the resources section of this blog. We hope to see you there. But if you are unable to attend, read on for a short summary.

Security is foundational. Not an Afterthought.

Implementing strict access controls and regular audits within Oracle Database and Fusion Apps HCM, ERP or CW is the starting point for safeguarding sensitive data. Global organizations should  easily understand and analyze user access, user locations, access from threat IPs across entire stack tiers and deployment environments. Logging Analytics gives a boost to your efforts for enhancing IT security posture.

Transaction level visibility for OIC integrations is non-negotiable

OIC serves as the backbone for business flows development. It connects disparate systems efficiently, ensuring that data flows seamlessly between Fusion Apps, Oracle Database, and VBCS. Logging Analytics streamlines the integration development, deployment and monitoring of these complex integrations to significantly reduce integration time and complexity. Logging Analytics simplifies monitoring of these integrations end-to-end.

Network & Identity and Access Management must be done 24x7

OCI networking and IAM have been built with security and performance first from day one. Novel tenancy architectures also demand 24x7 monitoring from day one or there is a huge risk of data breaches, lost access, losing customers etc to name a few. Logging Analytics provided extensive solutions for network components and identify providers.

Extending applications is about customizations. Without disrupting core operations.

Oracle Visual Builder excels here by allowing developers to build extensions with minimal coding to deliver engaging experiences to your end-users. Management Dashboards provide rich features to visualize data from O&M service while Visual Builder empowers Cloud admins, Application admins, and Database Admins to create custom view and workflows that are unique to their business.

Advanced ML/AI techniques not just provide insight for performance optimization but also a blow-by-blow account of each transaction.
