08AVIO and Oracle Workshop: BPM for Government
by Brandon Dean 4/8/14
When government agencies use BPM, they can significantly improve collaboration with citizens and other agencies, cut costs and increase revenue. Case in point—after implementing Oracle BPM Suite to streamline and modernize its Integrated Justice Information System (IJIS), San Joaquin County in California had a better relationship with residents and a better budget. Citizens could easily pay tickets through an online citation payment system, and the county increased collaboration with other state and national law enforcement agencies. It also reduced the time officers spend on non-core activities by 25 percent, and IJIS access time from hours to seconds.
02AVIO's Pace Layered Technology Session at IOUG Collaborate 2014
by Brandon Dean 4/2/14
The annual Independent Oracle Users Group conference is almost here. If you’re attending, come join our session for a look at how a pace-layered approach to applications will drive innovation and ROI, and improve the relationship between IT and the business. Many organizations today have enterprise application strategies that don’t meet the needs of business users. They want modern, highly responsive, user-friendly applications—while IT is often preoccupied with costs, safety and trying to minimize integration issues. These misaligned goals often lead to poor investments.
31Oracle ACM 11g - A look into Title, Priority, and Category
by Suyash Khot 3/31/14
In Oracle BPM 11g PS6, BPM Studio (JDeveloper) is the design-time environment for Oracle Adaptive Case Management (ACM). The first thing that you notice when you create your Case Management project in JDeveloper is the Case artifact itself. The top most tab in the Case artifact is the 'General' tab. The first three elements on this tab are Title, Priority, and Category. It was not obvious to me as to what values should be used in these three elements when I created my first ACM project. It is only after I deployed it and browsed through the Case UI on the BPM Workspace that I was able to get a better idea of what values to use. In this blog we will cover what these three elements define in a Case and the different options that are available to set the values for them.
215 Scenarios for Using Adaptive Case Management
by Kris Nelson 3/21/14
Adaptive Case Management (ACM) has been an evolving topic in recent years as the definition, methodology and tools in this space have been maturing. This article will help you identify some key areas where ACM might be a candidate to solve a process problem. With the Oracle BPM 220.127.116.11 Patch Set 6 release and recent updates from Oracle, the ACM functionality is a key player in the overall Oracle BPM Suite. While I will not be providing a deep overview of ACM here (check out the links below or a google search), a little background on ACM is in order. A simple, formal definition from the Workflow Management Coalition is this:
17New Solutions for a New Healthcare Landscape
by Brandon Dean 3/17/14
Along with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) came a tidal wave of sweeping changes in the healthcare industry. Due to an extremely complex web of providers, patients, payers and more—the healthcare industry has fallen behind other industries when it comes to managing effective business processes. Automating the claims approval process workflow is perhaps one of the best ways health plans can control costs. That’s what “new” Business Process Management (BPM) and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) solutions can do—let’s take a brief look at what else they can do.
