Next Generation Application Development: BPM for Apps

Pre-built applications sound like the nirvana to removing the overhead of building from scratch. However as time progresses, customization of the applications and leveraging information beyond application silos is a huge overhead in itself. It requires skilled work, and lands up with brittle point-to-point integrations that are not supportive of human interactions. As organizations grow organically or through acquisitions, the IT infrastructure will have to factor in more pre-built and homegrown applications to the equation, making it that much harder to gain insight into information that spans application boundaries.

BPM for Applications is the answer to this problem. BPM can be used to create and automate processes across applications, modify these processes with ease and structure collaborative processes and tasks. In addition BPM can be used to orchestrate across multi-channel customer interactions and give insight into key performance metrics. The applications can continue to be upgraded and maintained independent of the BPM layer.

In addition, Oracle has a unique offering, Process Accelerators that can give you an edge to leveraging BPM for Apps. Oracle Process Accelerators are pre-built business processes that are product-level tested and ready for deployment straight out-of-the-box. And the best thing is they are free and ready for prime-time right now. It is easy to pick a pre-built Process Accelerator such as Internal Service Request or Employee On-boarding and have it read information across different application boundaries and feeding information into different silos. As the Process Accelerators get more specific per industry such as Loan Origination in Financial Services, it's easy to imagine the loan origination business process simply being customized to leverage specific applications to kick-start BPM for Apps. This allows the development of the next generation of dynamic applications that have the following advantages:

  • Designed for end-user customization 
  • Upgrade safe 
  • Deployed on-premise or in cloud 
  • Embedded Business Intelligence, collaboration and managed content 
  • Collaborative, intuitive multi-channel interface 
  • Adaptive platform to protect against technology shifts 
  • Standards-based, hot-pluggable architecture

Secret to BPM Success: Talent Imitates, Genius Steals

BPM is the promise of business transformation by maximizing the potential of turnkey business processes in any organization. But majority of organizations never realize this dream and land up restricting BPM to project silos at the departmental level. This is because succeeding at BPM involves a lot more than picking the right software vendor. One of the key factors to success with BPM involves leveraging several years of experience ironing out business processes for maximum performance and establishing and enforcing best practices. These best practices evolve as BPM matures in an organization and can be very unique to the industry vertical that the organization lies in. Like most things in life, repetitive practice is what achieves perfection. Business processes get re-written and changed as years go by, people in the organization mature and acclimatize to the value that BPM can bring, center of excellence bodies get created and businesses begin to realize the value that they signed up for, when they initially decided to buy BPM.

One of the best ways to shorten the time-to-value on a BPM purchase is by leveraging the strength that experience can bring in perfecting business processes. This is the goal of Oracle Process Accelerators. Process Accelerators are fully implemented business processes that can be deployed right out-of-the-box to allow users to hit the ground running with their BPM implementation. The business processes are built-out to leverage several years of best practices that have developed from our experience deploying BPM in different verticals. What is most appealing about Process Accelerators is that they are free and available for prime time use immediately. 

In the next series of blog posts, I intend going into details on vertical and horizontal specific business processes and the story behind each process accelerator in our stack. Meanwhile, to find out more, you can visit us at Oracle Process Accelerators. And if you are itching to get hands-on, contact us at: oracle_process_accelerators@beehiveonline.oracle.com
