Application Integration Architecture (AIA) allows developers to build composite applications - and will allow customers to integrate various applications (like 11i/R12, Siebel, PeopleSoft, third party application and custom applications), in such a way that it will not be affected by upgrades of certain components.

AIA will also be used in Fusion Applications.

  • Industry Reference Models

They provide documented business processes that allow for the creation of custom, integrated process flows across heterogeneous environments.
