Business processes are at the heart of what makes or breaks a business—and what differentiates it from the competition. Oracle helps your enterprise excel in process management by delivering a comprehensive, industry-leading business process management (BPM) suite.

Quite a number of users with existing Oracle BPM infrastructure and assets are considering moving their assets from on premise to the respective cloud version called Oracle Process Cloud Service.

Offering visibility and management of business processes, and a full life-cycle process management environment including development, test and production- with tooling and run time for process design, execution , monitoring and optimization -without the need to build and maintain an IT infrastructure.

Oracle Process Cloud empowers Line of Business and Process Designers to build, customize and change custom business applications in a collaborative manner.
Oracle Process Cloud comes prepackaged with process templates and starter patterns for quick and easy rollout of custom business applications. Users can build all a business application including forms, decisions, data models and implement in a zero code, declarative fashion.

At the moment, users can export their assets to run on BPM as you will find in the PCS documentation but if you are considering moving your existing Oracle BPM applications and assets to the cloud, then an easy way to achieve this by Migrating your Oracle BPM assets into Oracle Process Cloud Service (PCS). As Andre Boaventura shows in this blog post, this requires a conversion framework and he provides a simple bash script that does the conversion for you.
