BPM 12c Makes a Splash at Oracle Open World 2014

This year's Oracle Open World found us filling a new leadership position - CTO by an unbridled Larry Ellison who showed off hands-on demos to move on-prem to the cloud. Outstanding customer and partner presentations, had a packed audience of more than 60,000 people sitting on the edge of their seats, grasping the immensity and reality of cloud, mobile, and the internet of things, making digital business a reality. Oracle seems committed to the Cloud more than ever and it seems a matter of when rather than if a customer will move to the cloud. And across the board the repeat message that resonated was that moving to the cloud was going to be possible with a few pushes of a button rather than hiring experts and rewriting code

Oracle BPM 12c made a splash at Oracle Open World 2014. Oracle's unique BPM offering gathered resounding attention for setting itself apart as a global leader. The following messages were the underlying theme of Oracle BPM this year that established it as a complete, business driven, and solutions based offering that can transform organizations to deliver on the digital vision:

- Mature BPM Solution with Adaptive Case Management integrated on the same stack
- Making the business user the focus with Business Driven Rapid Process Automation
- Multi-channel suport with mobile, built into every stage of BPM lifecycle management 
- Real-time process analytics and predictive analysis
- Developer productivity enhancements
- Cloud integration to leverage business process management across cloud and on-premise
- Combined solution with Webcenter for content and social management supporting the digital enterprise
- Prebuilt BPM solutions with Oracle Process Accelerators
- Sneak preview into Oracle Process Cloud

This year's conference was bigger than ever with 25+ sessions for Oracle BPM Suite, including both Oracle-led, and external submissions. There were an unprecedented number of customers and partners speaking in our sessions: including McAfee, Dutch Judiciary, 7-Eleven, Sherwin Williams, Ricoh Americas,  National Academy of Sciences,  Flextronics, State Revenue Office of Victoria, State of Alaska, Engineers Australia, US Foods, spir-it, eProseed, Avion, and many more. The BPM sessions included four live product demos; 3 hands-on labs including a preview of Oracle Process Cloud Service, 25 exhibits, and a well attended customer reception.

The two customers who took the limelight at the BPM Innovation Award Winners were State Revenue Office of Victoria and Vertafore with their cutting edge enterprise wide BPM solutions. 

One session of note was on Managing Unstructured Processes with Oracle Business Process Management: Lessons from the Field. Where the discussion on adaptive case management at the Dutch Judiciary led us to understand that not all business processes are well structured and therefore not easy to automate with just BPM. Less structured processes typically are left out of BPM adoption but tend to be high-value processes performed by knowledge workers/experts. Oracle BPM not only provides excellent support for efficiecntly and effectively managing structured processes but also support knowledge-driven, unstructured and ad hoc processes by using adaptive case management.

Other sessions that were of interest:

Oracle Business Process Management Strategy and Vision
Oracle Webcenter and Oracle Business Process Management Enabling the Digital Business 
Best Practices learned from Process Accelerator Solutions
Oracle Process Cloud Service (Preview); Rapid Process Automation
Customer Panel: The Path to Process Excellence, Notes from the Trenches

To look at the list of sessions held at Oracle Open World 2014 and access presentations: Focus On BPM at Oracle Open World 2014 and I hope to meet you at next year's conference: Oracle Open World 2015. Overall Oracle Open World 2014 was a mindblowing event with outstanding teamwork and exceptional delivery on every front from the customer, partner, and employee base of the organization.
