BPM is Hotter than Ever! Open World 2013 Recap
By Ajay Khanna on Oct 09, 2013
This year Oracle OpenWorld was bigger than ever. Oracle BPM team designed more than 20 best practices and customer sessions, set-up six demo booths and had many hands on labs available to the attendees. For those who were unable to come to Oracle OpenWorld (or missed some sessions), I want to share some ideas, messages, and takeaways from several BPM sessions that ran at this event. Processes are the key differentiators for most of the organizations. Processes provide a competitive edge, efficiencies and desired customer experience to make an organization successful.
To make our customers successful and help them deliver the right customer experience to their end-customers, Oracle is making a significant investment in enhancing the Oracle BPM Suite and adding pre-built solutions called Process Accelerators. Some of these significant enhancements were discussed by Oracle’s Executive Vice President Thomas Kurian in General Session : “"Accelerate Business Innovation with Oracle Fusion Middleware".
Thomas was joined by Gangadhar Konduri , VP Product Management who showcased some of the cool features like web based Process Composer and Mobile workspaces. We have the entire session recorded for you, you can replay it on-demand.
Another subject of significant interest at OpenWorld was Adaptive Case Management. Oracle Open World Session: Managing Knowledge Worker Processes discussed the key aspects of ACM, its capabilities and how it allows users to manage unstructured Processes.
Oracle Process Accelerators provide quick time-to-solution
with production grade, best-practices process solution that is ready to deploy.
Details of that session can be read in the blog Oracle Open World Redux: A Manifesto for Adaptable yet

Then there were many sessions discussing methodology and best practices to create process based solutions. Some of these sessions are recapped in articles below:
