Today morning (10/26/2012 between 11:00-12:00 pm PST), Monique Albrechet, Accenture BPM Practice Lead, Manas Deb, Senior Director and I (Meera Srinivasan) will be delivering an Open World session on how to ensure BPM Success with Oracle BPM Methodology. A key goal of BPM is to align processes with business strategy and objectives, identify ways to improve those processes and then enable tracking and monitoring performance for continuous improvement and optimization. The traditional water fall model of development does not work well for BPM which is all about iterative and agile development. Over the past several years, Oracle has gathered lot of experience helping customers implement BPM solutions. With this experience we have seen a pattern emerge of an ecosystem for building and deploying enterprise-wide BPM solutions.
Those patterns and lifecycle have been captured in Oracle BPM Method and mapped to the Oracle BPM Suite platform. The Oracle BPM Method is a customisable framework containing detailed procedures for practical use of the Oracle BPM platform to analyse, design, deploy, monitor and improve business processes. The presentation will cover these 5 distinct phases eac of which can be iterative:
- Process Selection – Identify process candidates that produce the maximum ROI for business process automation and optimization
- Definition and Refinement - The initial definition is the one-time adjustment needed to introduce the selected business process into the continuous improvement cycle; the refinement portion is the part that needs to be repeated for iterations.
- Technical Design and Composition – This is where BPM meets SOA and process requirements drive the generation and design of Business Services. It I also the phase where the different BPM Application artifacts such as process, UI and dashboards are wired together to produce a complete and ready to deploy BPM Application
- Testing, Deployment and Approval – This is similar to the traditional development lifecycle and covers aspects such as functional testing, integration testing and usability testing.
- Monitoring and Optimization – BPM is all about continuous process improvement and this phase covers identifying improvement opportunities for the next iteration.
We hope that you are able to join us for this session, and please do try to attend Prasen Palvankar’s session on dynamic case management:
