Oracle BPM Composer 12c New "Document-Only" Feature

Oracle BPM 12c Business Process Composer has many new features, but one that is commonly overlooked is its "Document-Only" feature. This makes it easy to create processes that are not validated or deployed when the other processes in the project are deployed. This is useful when modeling the way things are currently working, and is commonly known as modeling the As-Is process.

Join us on our favorite working holiday at COLLABORATE 15 in Las Vegas

Whoever said work can’t be fun never made it to the annual Independent Oracle Users conference. If you’re going this month, make sure to stop by and attend a sessions from our very own Kristopher Nelson, Midwest General Manager.

Kris will discuss how organizations can use BPM and SOA to integrate, cultivate and distinguish key financial processes—as well as improve independent and unique processes within a financial system or ERP. He’ll illustrate how businesses have been able to improve financial processes with Oracle SOA Suite, Fusion Middleware and Oracle E-Business Suite.

How to Ensure Your Business Processes Support the Customer Experience

Many businesses have grown a little too comfortable with the status quo. The days of vendor lock-in via large and cumbersome ERP implementations are becoming a thing of the past while new and disruptive technologies continue to support upstart competitors at increasingly rapid paces. The shift to a more modular approach to technology and the consumerization of the IT function are creating a need to manage the various modules. 

Leveraging Agile and Scrum on SOA and BPM projects

Within our implementation framework at AVIO, we use an Agile methodology called Scrum.  We have found this to be a great fit for Oracle Fusion Middleware projects in the SOA, BPM and WebCenter space — especially when projects seek to improve or bring innovative new approaches to an organization.
If you are new to Agile and Scrum, check out this great video which covers some of the key concepts:

BPM 12c - BPM Object Scripting Using Groovy

Oracle BPM 12c has a new feature included that allows for BPM scripting using the Groovy language. This was missing in BPM 11g and is very similar to the feature that was available in BPM 10g that allowed for BPM scripting using its own scripting language - PBL (Process Business Language). There are two primary places you can use Groovy in 12c:

BPM 11g - Using two dates to calculate and implement a SLA

A very common use case for using an SLA (Service Level Agreement) is when there is a start date-time (not necessarily the current date-time) and an end date-time and you want to use the time difference between those two dates as your SLA in your BPM process. In the good old BPM 10g days you could do that easily. You could take the two dates and subtract one from the other and the result could be used as a SLA value. Unfortunately, the same cannot be done in BPM 11g as easily but we do have a solution.
