Thriving On Adaptability: Best Practices for Knowledge Workers by Keith Swenson

clip_image001Adaptive Case Management is ultimately about allowing knowledge workers to work the way that they want to work and to provide them with the tools and information they need to do so effectively.

As Surendra Reddy points out in his foreword:
“Imagine a fully integrated ACM system layered into the value stream of an enterprise. The customer support team is able to focus on customer needs, with easy access to the entire company’s repertoire of knowledge, similar cases, information, and expertise, as if it were a service. To truly accommodate customers, companies must vest real power and authority in the people and systems that interact directly with customers, at the edge of the organization and beyond. ACM augments business processes to deliver true data-driven process infrastructure entering enterprises into the age of intelligent machines and intelligent processes. ACM empowers the knowledge worker to collaborate, derive new insights, and fine tune the way of doing business by placing customers right in the left where they belong, to drive innovation and organizational efficiencies across the global enterprise.
“ACM also helps organizations focus on improving or optimizing the line of interaction where our people and systems come into direct contact with customers. It’s a whole different thing; a new way of doing business that enables organizations to literally become one living-breathing entity via collaboration and adaptive data-driven biological-like operating systems. ACM is not just another acronym or business fad. ACM is the process, strategy, framework, and set of tools that enables this evolution and maturity.
“ACM, in my opinion, is the future blueprint for the way of doing business.”

Thriving on Adaptability describes the work of managers, decision makers, executives, doctors, lawyers, campaign managers, emergency responders, strategists, and many others who have to think for a living. These are people who figure out what needs to be done, at the same time that they do it.

In award-winning case studies covering industries as a diverse as law enforcement, transportation, insurance, banking, state services, and healthcare, you will find instructive examples for how to transform your own organization.

This important book follows the ground-breaking best-sellers, Empowering Knowledge Workers, Taming the Unpredictable, How Knowledge Workers Get Things Done, and Mastering the Unpredictable and provides important papers by thought-leaders in this field, together with practical examples, detailed ACM case studies and product reviews.

Next Generation SOA: A Concise Introduction to Service Technology & Service-Orientation

Innovative service technologies are becoming valuable assets for businesses that need to stay competitive in the face of increasing globalization and market complexity. While computer processing power is becoming faster and cheaper, search engines, instant messaging, and social media channels are generating floods of information that escalate demands for consumable and accessible data.

clip_image002As the world's economies engage one another through offshoring, outsourcing, and supply chaining, localization is required to accommodate different currencies and languages. Globalization, recession, invention, and communication are some of the driving forces behind a next generation of technologies and practices that revolve around software programs designed in accordance with the paradigm of service-orientation. Such programs, referred to as "services," are expected to do more for less with greater efficiency in order to meet business challenges head-on.

We have reached a stage in the evolution of service-oriented computing where modern service technology innovation is building upon mature service platforms at the same time that proven delivery techniques and design patterns are building upon an established service-orientation paradigm. These developments have made it possible to create service-oriented solutions of unprecedented sophistication.

Book review: Oracle BPM Suite 12c Modeling Patterns by Jon Petter Hjulstad

clip_image002This is a book review on the book “Oracle BPM Suite 12c Modeling Patterns” written by Vivek Acharya – on PACKT. For more information visit this link.

This is the first book on Oracle BPM 12c and is a good resource for those who want to get more familiar with how different patterns can be modeled in Oracle BPM.

It is not a book for beginners – or those that want to know more about BPM – this is more for those of us that are already convinced.

Book Details:

ISBN 139781849689021

Paperback  454 pages

This is a book that is more on the advanced side – and BPMN modeling is not always easy. This book gives some examples on how you can solve different process scenarios. Therefore the author limits the scope – and I think that is a good choice:

  • This book is designed to provide information on BPMN Modeling Patterns only
  • This book does not contain all the information available on the subject.
  • The primary focus is to showcase BPM patterns which are generic and can be read by anyone allied with any BPM offering.

Read the complete article here. For additional BPM books please visit our wiki here.

Book Review: Getting Started with Oracle SOA B2B Integration by Jon Petter Av Hjulstad

Before last OOW my only experience with Oracle B2B was Ronald van Luttikhuizen's presentation at OUGN this year. After some sessions at OOW, and reading this book on the plane back I now know more about it. Unfortunately I do not have any practical project experience yet.

I like this book - it gives a good summary of what B2B is and what the Oracle B2B product can do. Not all of you will come across B2B, but when you need it - then you really need it. B2B functionality is not something you would like to code yourself from scratch. I like that it is a "Hands-On Tutorial", so you can try it out using the virtual image of the Oracle SOA Suite patch release PS5 (11.1.1.6).

Here are the book details:

Publisher: PACKT
Title: Getting Started with Oracle SOA B2B Integration: A Hands-On Tutorial

Language : English
Paperback : 332 pages
Release Date : July 2013

SOA Made Simple by Lonneke Dikmans , Ronald van Luttikhuizen

SOA Made SimpleSOA is an industry term which is often preached like a religion rather than taught like a technology, and over time, grasping the concept has become unnecessarily difficult.

Many companies proclaim that they do not know where to begin with SOA, while others have begun their SOA effort but have not reaped the benefits they were convinced it would bring.

SOA Made Simple” explains what SOA is in simple terminology and by using real-life examples. Service-orientation is already a very natural way of thinking for business stakeholders that want to realize and sell services to potential clients, and this book helps you to realize that concept both in theory and practice. After reading “SOA Made Simple” you will have a clear understanding of what SOA is so you can implement and govern SOA in your own organization. If you are an architect who wants to be completely clear in your understanding of what SOA is, then this book is essential. In fact, anyone (designer, developer, administrator or team lead) who is implementing or about to implement an architecture in an IT environment should not miss out on “SOA Made Simple”.

If you published a book feel free to add it to our publications wiki!
