Third Party Integration

Getting large volumes of data into or out of your Oracle E-Business (EBS) system quickly and accurately is no small feat.

SmartDog’s technical experts in Oracle EBS can create programs that will automatically process data into an Oracle-based or an external system.

SmartDog accomplishes this with requests that run periodically or with APIs created for an ongoing or real-time interaction between Oracle and third-party systems.

SmartDog’s technical experts are well-versed in Oracle EBS architecture, data mapping and the Application Object Library. This allows us to expertly and accurately meet your company’s technical needs.

Oracle tools used to integrate data include:

  • Concurrent Requests are used commonly to drive the upload/download
  • PL/SQL
  • SOA Bpel
  • EDI Gateway
  • XML Gateway
  • Shell scripts (*not an Oracle tool)

In addition, data transfers can be automated with file movement, archiving and/or encryption for secure information.

Additionally, SmartDog’s Packaged Solutions Catalog is a catalog of fixed-price, fixed-scope implementations of third-party integrations with entities like FedEx, PayPal, and Bank of America. The Packaged Solutions Catalog features approximately 100 solutions that SmartDog has created and tested over time, working with customers across all types of industries. The catalog is searchable by line of business, including customer relationship management, financials, HR, operations, and technology. The solutions allow customers to make use of software they already own and achieve quick business value by streamlining processing, speeding up payments, and eliminating redundant third-party software.
