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

Jumpstarting BPM with Process Accelerators

Business Process Management has gained broad acceptance as a key enabler for achieving operational efficiency and process compliance for businesses in various industries. Faced with shrinking cycle times and increased process complexity across their value-chains, businesses seek to unlock the value of their process transformation efforts at a faster pace while mitigating the risks of embracing this process change. Oracle Process Accelerators address this need by delivering processes built on industry best-practices and helping businesses reap the following benefits:

  • Lower start-up time and cost of BPM with ready-to-use pre-built yet easily customizable processes that minimize Business-IT round-tripping
  • Parity with industry benchmarks in terms of process performance and efficiency with pre-built processes based on experience of Oracle customers and partners
  • Lower operational risk in terms of process adherence to industry standards with pre-built processes with embedded best-practices

Oracle Process Accelerators offers process automation for the following vertical and horizontal processes:

Vertical: Public Sector Incident Reporting of unusual events or policy deviations with full audit capability

Horizontal: Travel Request Management for automated and multi-level rule based workflow and Document Approval for managing standard or one-of-a-kind documents

Oracle Process Accelerators in conjunction with Oracle BPM Suite 11g delivers a systematic, best-practices based, approach to business-driven process discovery, modeling, optimization and change management.
