Onboarding and offboarding

Onboarding and offboarding
Getting started Oracle Cloud processes the order, sets up the service, and sends an email to the account administrator when the service is ready to be activated. The account administrator then uses the MyAccount application to activate the service. When the activation of a paid subscription to an Oracle Cloud service is complete, the designated service administrator and identity domain administrator (if different) receive a postactivation email from Oracle Cloud. As a service administrator or an identity domain administrator, you use My Services to verify that your Oracle Cloud service is up and running. You can also use My Services to monitor utilization, view service details, and access any control panels and associated tools for the Oracle Cloud service.

API Yes
What users can and can't do using the API Oracle ERP Cloud uses open standards to provide mechanisms by which integration with the current IT landscape can be achieved. The Cloud ERP application provides several built in tools by which inbound integration can be achieved. The web services available for use against Oracle ERP Cloud are listed on a publicly available repository which can be found here: http://www.oracle.com/webfolder/technetwork/docs/HTML/oer-redirect.html
Oracle ERP Cloud provides web services to provide CRUD (create, read, update, delete) operations via API calls. In addition to these Business Object type API’s, Oracle ERP Cloud provides system level API’s allowing the automation of certain scenarios, such as the automation of file based data import. This file based data import is available as a task for an admin level user to perform through a user interface. Web services can be used in this case to look and poll an SFTP location and import a given file into Oracle ERP Cloud on a scheduled basis. With the two types of API: Business Object level and System level almost all types and scenario for integration can be achieved.

Scaling

Scaling
Independence of resources Oracle’s cloud services are architected from the ground up to serve the needs of large enterprises. Our elastic cloud architecture supports independent scaling at each of 3 tiers: Web, Application, and Database. Our provisioning and load balancing processes dynamically add additional resources based on current and anticipated usage. Because Oracle owns its own data centers and all elements of the hardware and software stack, we are also uniquely able to scale our cloud solutions.
