The Value of Data

Data is the currency of digital enterprise. The fuel of technology, its influx and exchange power the digital capability to market products, reach and engage customers, manage business operations, and perform countless other functions. And because data is typically retained rather than expended in the process, it accumulates into vast, dynamic stockpiles of granularized digital fact.


The ability to add ADF-BC JUnit Tests has been available since 11g and they worked nicely out-of-the-box within JDeveloper as well as in batch via Ant tasks.  Maven support was added in 12c (12.1.3) and running them in Maven, as of this writing, requires that a small number of adjustments be made to the JDeveloper Model project POM.   

Digital transformation creates opportunities to drastically improve the customer experience. Today's consumers have high expectations from the organizations they do business with, especially when it comes to seeking out smooth and streamlined processes. Companies pay particular attention to the millennial generation, as Accenture reports this demographic is spending $600 billion annually.

One of the great frustrations businesses face today is the time, money and effort it takes to solve their own business problems. Impatient waiting for corporate IT to deliver solutions, the business often resorts to delivering their own off-the-grid software solutions. This shows how Oracle PCS addresses this recurring issue with a more business oriented approach using smaller less technical teams to deliver automated process solutions. A working application will be built from scratch in the demonstration, and it includes tips on getting started, how processes are modeled, the use of business rule decisions, how user interfaces are designed and tested, the integration of services into the process, and how end users interact with the completed application.

While many SOA and BPM projects leverage ADF, a number of clients are looking towards using responsive UI strategies based on HTML, JavaScript and REST services. This means taking on projects where the custom UIs for human tasks and possibly the workspace are built in technologies other than ADF. In some cases, our clients have expertise in a certain technology and just need help in creating the REST services for BPM related service invocation. In other cases, they have requested help choosing an alternative to ADF.

During the OFM Forum last week, there were a few discussions around the relationship between the Human Workflow (WF_TASK*) tables in the SOA_INFRA schema and BPMN processes.  It is important to know how these are related because it can have a performance impact.  We have seen this performance issue several times when BPMN processes are used to model high volume system integrations without knowing all of the implications of using BPMN in this pattern.

As we enter 2014, it is always good to take stock of our accomplishments as well as lay out new goals for the New Year.  There is so much activity in the SOA/BPM space that it can be challenging to focus on the key activities that will best help you reach your business and IT goals. 

Below are some ideas to get you started for your 2014 SOA and BPM New Year’s resolutions:

If you are reading this blog topic, then like so many, you are trying to use the Oracle SOA 11g Database Adapter to fit your database polling needs and are in need of a little assistance. 

Since most of the people at Avio seem to have some sort of flu or cold virus right now, it made sense to me to talk about how successful BPM engagements tend to lead to the viral adoption of BPM with an organization.  Most organizations tend to start with small, tactical implementations in order to get their feet wet and see how BPM fits within their IT and LOB functions.  If done properly, initial deployments tend to happen quickly and drive significant results.  As a result, the rest of the organization tends to take notice and the collective light bulb goes turn on.  What happens next is
