Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS) delivers the backend infrastructure services to "Glue" together the a mobile application for a phone or tablet, with an enterprise application.
By using the powerful functionality available with Oracle Mobile Cloud Service, mobile application developers can focus on the user features that deliver a quality app or develop a Chatbot.
Oracle MCS provides the functionality through built-in APIs:
- Push Notification
- Data Offline / Sync
- Mobile User Management
- Mobile Storage
- Device Management
- Messaging Interface
The mobile application developer can call these APIs directly from the mobile app via straight REST calls, or with the help of Mobile Cloud Service's SDKs for the iOS and Android platforms.
Although the generic infrastructure functionality is delivered with the APIs, Oracle has recognised that for some businesses that will be opportunities to create specific APIs, so a robust API Designer tool is provide, enabling the creation of custom APIs.
The Enterprise Service Developers with the knowledge of the enterprise applications are able to utilise the MCS APIs to provide the business logic and communication with the enterprise applications in order to respond to the requests made by the mobile applications.
Oracle has constructed an architecture which enables Chatbots to be built that can engage in conversations via Facebook Messenger, Alexa, Siri, Cortana or Google Assistant.
The Oracle MCS software providing the infrastructure for the transaction handling and dialogue structure, allowing connections to enterprise systems and cloud resources.
