Over the past month, we've had two separate projects in Oracle BPM 11g go into production. From what we hear, because the technology is fairly new, there aren't a tremendous amount of projects based on Oracle BPM 11g that have made it into production. In keeping with one of our goals in being a innovative and leading edge consulting organization, we feel it is a pretty cool honor to have two projects now in production and contributing tremendous value to our client. Both of the projects are used by end users geographically distributed around the world. Previously, the processes were very highly manually intensive which often lead to extremely long cycle times and were prone to human error. Because all of the approvals and reviews are done through the Oracle BPM Workspace and the back end system integration is orchestrated through the BPM 11g engine, the process is now actively managed and bottlenecks and issues are proactively identified.
In the coming months, we are looking forward to a large number of addition Oracle BPM 11g production events as currently have a number of clients implementing Oracle BPM 11g. While Oracle BPM 11g is a bit of a departure from our experience with the FuegoBPM->ALBPM->Oracle BPM 10g tool, we've found that while the underlying technology plays a significant component in the success it takes a strong understanding of a process based approach and an iterative methodology that truly drives the success.
We look forward to sharing our successes in the future as well!
