BPM PS6 video showing process lifecycle in more detail by Mark Nelson

imageIf the five minute video that I shared last week has whet your appetite for more, then this might be just what you are looking for!

The same international team who made that video - Andrew Dorman, Tanya Williams, Carlos Casares, Joakim Suarez and James Calise - have also created a thirty minute version that walk you through in much more detail and shows you, from the perspective of various business stakeholders involved in process modeling, exactly how BPM PS6 supports the end to end process lifecycle. The video centres around a Retail Leasing use case, and follows how Joakim the Business Analyst, Pablo the Process Owner, and James the Process Analyst take the process from conception to runtime, solely through BPM Composer, without the need for IT or the use of JDeveloper.

What is new in Oracle SOA Suite 11g R1 PS6? by Shanny Anoep

Oracle has released a new version 11.1.1.7.0 for their Oracle Fusion Middleware product line. This version includes Patch Set #6 (PS6) for Oracle SOA Suite 11g R1, with a big list of improvements and fixes for each component in that suite.

In this post we will highlight some of the interesting updates with regards to troubleshooting, performance, reliability and scalability.

Infrastructure/Purging scripts

Database growth is a common problem for large-scale Oracle SOA Suite deployments. Oracle already provides multiple purging strategies for the SOA Suite runtime database. This patch set includes two new scripts for purging most of the runtime data:

  • Table Recreation Script (TRS): This script can be used to reclaim as much database space as possible, while still retaining the open instances. It can be used as a corrective action for databases that grew excessively, for example when purging was not performed at all. This should be used as a single corrective action only; the script does not replace the normal purging scripts.
  • Truncate script: Remove all records from the SOA Suite runtime tables without dropping the tables. This script can be used for cloning SOA Suite environments without copying the instance data, or for recreating test scenarios by cleaning all the runtime data.

The Oracle SOA Suite Administrator's guide contains a table with the available purging strategies.

Diagnostic dumps

Using WLST you could already dump diagnostic information about various components of the SOA Suite. This version adds support to retrieve more information on BPEL and Adapters from the command-line.

Diagnostic dumps for BPEL

New diagnostic dumps are available for BPEL to get information on thread pools, average processing time for BPEL components, and average waiting times for asynchronous instances. This information can be very useful for performance analysis or troubleshooting. With WLST this information can be retrieved from the command-line and included for monitoring or reporting.

BPM PS6 video showing process lifecycle in more detail (30min) by Mark Nelson

The video centres around a Retail Leasing use case, and follows how Joakim the Business Analyst, Pablo the Process Owner, and James the Process Analyst take the process from conception to runtime, solely through BPM Composer, without the need for IT or the use of JDeveloper.

  • Joakim, the Business Analyst, models the process, designs the user interaction forms, and creates business rules,
  • Pablo, the Process Owner, reviews the process documentation and tests the process using the new ‘Process Player’,
  • James, the Process Analyst, analyses the process and identifies potential bottle necks using ‘Process Simulation’.

With Oracle BPM Suite 11g PS6 the modeling, simulation, implementation and execution of business processes in a multi-user environment is straightforward – Danilo Schmiedel , OPITZ CONSULTING

imageWe know quite a few companies who are in the situation that processes are unpredictable, complex, difficult to model and versatile. Their software users complain that they cannot make proper business decisions because they are forced to certain process steps and their processes rely on worker knowledge and involve a lot of human participants. Think about a claim notification after a car accident - it is very difficult to model each potential option of it and a lot of effort and time is necessary to bring all varieties into the process. Think about the user interface – it has to be very dynamic in order to make optimal business decisions. With Oracle BPM Suite 11.1.1.7 and its new case management functionalities we are now ready to address requirements like those mentioned above. This is the base to provide complete BPM solutions. I couldn’t wait to play with the software and I am really happy to discuss and demonstrate the new product capabilities with our customers. Danilo Schmiedel , OPITZ CONSULTING

ACM makes it possible to combine BPM processes into cases based upon lifecycle, milestones and events in a very fast and agile way – Leon Smiers, Capgemini

imageCapgemini is pleased to see that case management is now added to the Oracle SOA and BPM stack. This small addition broadens the already rich BPM architecture, making it possible to combine BPM processes into cases based upon lifecycle, milestones and events in a very fast and agile way.

When implementing our processes, Capgemini needs tooling that supports design workshops and plays a part in closing the loop between analysis and development. Oracle Process Composer is the browser-based business analyst tool used in workshops to design processes. Oracle developed this tool spectacularly with human task form design capabilities, simulation, and, process player, which permits running processes in situ in the browser. Leon Smiers, Capgemini

BPM 11g PS6 brings us closer to the power of BPM! Jon Petter Hjulstad, e-vita as

imageBPM PS6 brings us closer to the power of BPM! One of the focus areas in this release is making it simpler for business people to draw the process, design input forms, test the process out in Process Player, to do simulations - all in a web interface. All this will give IT a better base for further refinement - the result will be fewer iterations before the process is ready to deploy. The other thing I am looking forward to is OEP PS6 - The NoSQL-integration will be very useful! Jon Petter Hjulstad, e-vita as

BPM 11g PS6 is another milestone for closing the gap between the business and IT in the domains of collaboration and ease of use – Richard Schaller, [ipt]

image[ipt] is pleased to see that Oracle added compelling new features to the new release of the Oracle BPM Suite. This release is another milestone for closing the gap between the business and IT in the domains of collaboration and ease of use. The new Web Form feature will allow business users to see how the human task form will look like during the design workshops. The web-based process player enables business analysts to simulate, test and validate the processes in order to ensure that business needs are fulfilled.

[ipt] is convinced that these two features will significantly reduce the development life cycle and create solutions of higher quality. The adaptive case management solution will put skilled end users in the position to decide which steps they will have to take next in the process based on the current contextual information. This is a common requirement in the public insurance and health sector. Richard Schaller, [ipt] Innovation Process Technology AG

BPM 11g PS6 the support for Adaptive Case Management that Oracle has added to Oracle BPM Suite in this latest release means a breakthrough – Lucas Jellema, Amis

"Depending on the industry, organization and type of business process and its actors, a process can be iron clad and straightforward to capture in a BPMN definition. However, in many environments, the business process - or part of the process - is not fixed. Which steps are to be executed and in which order: it depends on the situation. Typically a an experienced professional makes the call as to how to proceed through the process - using predefined process activities and sub-process. This type of business process is indicated with the term 'case imagemanagement'. The role of BPM and the BPM engine is somewhat different because in this approach each process instance can be in part a predefined flow and in part a sequence of activities determined by a knowledge worker or even by (real time decisions based on actions from) consumers. The support for Adaptive Case Management that Oracle has added to Oracle BPM Suite in this latest release means a breakthrough in the support for (partially) unstructured business processes. AMIS is very keen on using this feature for a wide range of organizations structuring, streamlining and optimizing their business processes."

"The BPM Process Composer brings business users and analysts closer together with designers and developers of BPM processes. The browser based user interface of Process Composer shows the same information that the technical specialists work on. With the latest release of Oracle BPM 11g, the Process Composer allows users to simulate a business process - even before it has been fully implemented - in order to find bottlenecks and discover optimization opportunities. Improvements to the process - documentation, annotations as well as real process enhancements - can be made through the Process Composer. Two new features are especially interesting to AMIS and our customers: The new Process Player option allows users to validate, test and playback the business process in an easy way within the composer. Note that all process activities need not have been implemented yet to already play the process, ensuring that its design meets the business and customer needs. The new WebForms option in Process Composer allows the creation of simple and effective user interfaces for human tasks in the business process that do not require rich and complex pages leveraging data from backend data sources. This feature will facilitate the rapid prototyping of business processes including human-process interactions for example for quick decisions." Lucas Jellema, Amis
