Business Process Management (BPM)
Als sluitstuk van de jaarlijkse Oracle OpenWorld conferentie brengt AMIS een whitepaper uit. Een handzaam document waarin het volledige verhaal van Oracle OpenWorld 2012 is gebundeld.
Een team van AMIS was tijdens de conferentie in oktober nadrukkelijk aanwezig; als sponsor, deelnemer, netwerker en spreker – en als aandachtig luisteraar en analist.
Zeven Oracle-specialisten van AMIS hebben deze whitepaper samengesteld waarin de visie, plannen en aankondigingen van Oracle zijn gebundeld. In het maar liefst 47 pagina’s dik document wordt niet alleen het verhaal van Oracle samengevat, maar geeft AMIS ook haar eigen duiding en waardering van het verhaal.
De whitepaper is hier gratis te downloaden.
Process analytics is an important part of BPM. Metrics and the analysis of metrics provide valuable information about process execution. This information can be used to optimize business processes. During the process modeling phase, Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) must be identified and implemented in the process.
Monitoring can be done using the out of the box provides default dashboards showing the default metrics for process analysis:
- Cycle-time for completed activities
- Cycle-time for completed processes
- Number of active instances per activity, process and participant
- Average and median time for activities and processes
Another option to manage the metrics is Oracle Business Activity Monitoring (BAM). BAM allows you to create custom dashboards and real-time alerts. These dashboards allow you to make decisions based on real-time process information. KPI’s can be implemented in a BPM processes easily and can be send to BAM without much extra effort.
In this blog I will provide a detailed description how to configure BAM and the BPM process in order to feed the BAM database with process specific data (business indicators and measurement marks).Configuration of More >
There is no beauty contest to determine which Fusion Middleware product shone the brightest during Oracle Open World. And it is a matter of taste any way. In this case, my taste. So, subjective as it is, my verdict in terms of the MVP (most valuable product) in the category FMW during this year’s OOW conference: BPM!
The main reason for this assessment is the rapid evolution that BPM has shown in the recent passed and is defining for the near future. After having been integrated with JDeveloper and SOA Suite 11g PS3 (April 2010), the Feature Pack 4 release (August 2011) and later the PS5 release (Spring 2012) demonstrated a lot of progress. The roadmap for 2013 looks very promising too.
BPM is one of the best examples of business meeting directly with IT – taking the (existing) business processes and the organization’s strategy and structuring them in a way that allows for clear discussion, optimization and refinement, simulation and even implementation through automated means. With the many (and still expanding) options in Oracle BPM for Design Time at Run Time, the interaction between Business and IT (systems) becomes even more direct. At run time, through simple, (business) More >
Yesterday (16th October), 10 days of the end of the yearly Oracle show in San Francisco, AMIS organized its ‘Review from Oracle Open World 2012′ session with an overview of news, trends, announcements, special finds and interesting rumors . This session was ‘sold out’ (even though it was free). For close to 4 hours, the AMIS crew at OOW enlightened the audience about their main conclusions and greatest inspirational moments from the conference. Our slides from the seven presentations that together made up this interesting evening are now available on SlideShare to further digest.
1. Overview, Introduction, Keynote Highlights, Java and Developer Cloud Service, Release Overview and the Innovation Tour – Lucas and Paul AMIS OOW Review 2012- Deel 1 – Lucas Jellema & Paul Uijtewaal from AMIS Services
The show is over, the visitors are on their way home. The process of digesting the announcements, roadmaps and rumors – confirmed or not – can proceed in full swing. What has become of last year’s plans, what are this year’s plans (for next year and beyond) and what has materialized in terms of Oracle’s product portfolio. For everyone, the answers to these questions and the conclusions will be somewhat different – depending on focus, expectations and requirements. However, some conclusions will be shared by most who attended Oracle Open World 2012.
Without a doubt, some of the important themes were and will be: cloud – and at respectable distance – the next generation of database technology (12c) and of engineered systems (Exa… X3-v2), of mobile availability of both standard applications (Fusion Applications and other Oracle Applications products) and custom Portals and applications (through ADF Mobile on iOS and Android)Facts and Opinions
The Facts may seem the easy part – since these are more or less objective – but as soon as interpretation and clarification enter the fray , the absoluteness of the facts is not assured. For example around availability: is the Oracle Cloud More >
We did it again! The team rejoined for the fourth Live FMW Application Development show, this time at Oracle Open World 2012 during the ADF EMG community event put together by Chris Muir. For three hours, we demonstrated to an audience of some 100 how you can create an application across four tiers – UI (ADF), Process (BPM), Service Integration (SOA Suite) and Database – that is completely integrated and provides end to end business process support. It is a great session to do and for the audience a pretty unique opportunity to learn about how the different pieces of FMW fit together and are used in real life. Note that most sessions at OOW are on one of the components only, not on the combination of them.
Some of the results to come out of this live demo show:
