Introducing Oracle BPM Suite 12c: Intelligent Adaptive Processes


In June 2014, Oracle launched Oracle Business Process Management Suite 12c (Oracle BPM Suite 12c), the industry's most social, unified, and complete BPM solution that helps organizations plan and manage their entire business architecture.

The latest release comes as demand for fast, interactive information increases, which in turn is driving ever-greater demand for more agile, responsive IT organizations.

In response, Oracle BPM Suite 12c enables businesses to quickly adapt to disruptive technologies such as cloud computing, big data, social networking, and smart devices, which have revolutionized how consumers and employees access and consume information.

Responsiveness Is the Lynchpin
"The world is a different place than it was just a few short years ago," says Oracle Director of Product Marketing Dain Hansen. "Operating in a digital economy means that companies must rethink how to do business."

Responsiveness has become the lynchpin for competitive advantage. That includes meeting customer concerns rapidly, providing real-time visibility into the enterprise to remove internal roadblocks and increase agility—and the ongoing ability to adapt to ever-evolving technologies and business practices.

Adaptive Management for Unstructured Content and Processes
Ideally, employees should have a real-time view into accounts payable and other processes that involve unstructured content and/or processes. Only then can they track how long processes take, spot bottlenecks, fix problems—and manage all the associated liabilities.

Thanks to tighter integration between Oracle BPM Suite 12c and Oracle WebCenter, a new adaptive case management feature delivers better, more-flexible case management for these traditionally thorny business processes.

New in Oracle BPM Suite 12c
In addition to adaptive case management, Oracle BPM Suite 12c provides the following new features to speed time-to-value, whether implementing new business processes or enhancing existing ones—across both in-house and cloud applications and services.
  • Improved business activity monitoring and reporting. Tightly integrated with Oracle Business Intelligence tools and Oracle Coherence, this feature delivers rich analytics tools, out-of-the-box process dashboards, out-of-the-box analysis tools, time-based analysis, and trend analysis for key performance indicators (KPIs). These enhancements, combined with the embedded complex query processor, enable organizations to react more quickly than ever to potential or actual performance issues as well as emerging trends and risks.
  • Business architecture modeling. Users can capture and catalog business processes from beginning to end, including strategic elements such as goals, objectives, and strategies—then link them to the value chains and business processes that implement them. And KPIs and other measures can be rolled back up to the goals and objectives within the business architecture for faster reporting and adjusting.
  • Mobile and software-as-a-service (SaaS) integrations. With Oracle BPM Suite 12c, users can easily and securely connect business processes to SaaS and mobile applications. And with Oracle Cloud Adapters, users can integrate with a range of Oracle and third-party cloud applications. In addition, Oracle BPM Suite 12c now supports REST/JSON for integrating mobile-aware process applications.

Internet of Things (IoT) Thanksgiving Special: Turkey Tweeter (Part 3)

In the spirit of Thanksgiving this week being celebrated on Thursday in the USA

This post is shared from our Oracle Java Community. 
Hinkmond Wong's Weblog

By hinkmond on Nov 21, 2013

OK, sports fans. You've got your Vernier Go!Temp USB probe connected. It looks good with lsusb and you can see the /dev/ldusb0 device in your Raspberry Pi Linux shell.

So, how do you write a Java SE Embedded app to read in the turkey temp values. Well, as with most things, you search the Web and you can find how it was done previously in other non-Java inferior programming languages. <img src=" title=";-)" style="border: none;" /> Here's a great example in Python on the finninday.net site.

See: finniday.net Go!Teamp example in Python

It shows the reverse engineered byte format of the data coming over USB from the Vernier Go!Temp probe. Booyah! That's what we need to write a Java SE Embedded app. And, here it is...

/**

public class TurkeyTweeter {

    /**
     * @param args the command line arguments
     */
    public static void main(String args[]) {
        Date date;
        FileInputStream fis = null;
        DataInputStream dis = null;
        byte   b[];
        
        double tempavg, c, f;
        int    samplecount=0, sequence=0, temp1=0, temp2=0, temp3=0;
        
        final double VERNIER_SCALING_FACTOR=126.74;
        final double VERNIER_CALIBRATION_OFFSET=5.4;

        b = new byte[8];

        // Loop to keep reading temperature
        while (true) {
            int available;

            try {
                fis = new FileInputStream("/dev/ldusb0");
                dis = new DataInputStream(fis);
            } catch (FileNotFoundException fnfe) {
                System.out.println("Cannot find temp sensor");
                fnfe.printStackTrace();
                System.exit(-1);
            }

            // Read 8 bytes from Vernier Go!Temp USB probe
            //   Format:
            //     Byte 0:   Sample Count
            //     Byte 1:   Sequence Index
            //     Byte 2-3: First temp sample
            //     Byte 4-5: Second temp sample
            //     Byte 6-7: Third temp sample
            try {
                if (dis != null) {
                    available = dis.read(b, 0, 8);
                    samplecount = b[0];
                    sequence = b[1];
                    temp1 = b[2] + b[3] * 256;
                    temp2 = b[4] + b[5] * 256;
                    temp3 = b[6] + b[7] * 256;
                }
            } catch (IOException ioe1) {
                System.out.println("Unable to get data from temp sensor");
                ioe1.printStackTrace();
            }
            
            tempavg = (temp1 + temp2 + temp3) / 3.0;
            c = tempavg / VERNIER_SCALING_FACTOR - VERNIER_CALIBRATION_OFFSET;
            
            // Convert from Fahrenheit to Celcius
            f = ((9.0/5.0) * c) + 32.0;
            
            double temperature = roundDouble(f);
            
            date = Calendar.getInstance().getTime();

            Format formatter = new SimpleDateFormat("E MMM d kk:mm:ss");
            String timedateString = formatter.format(date);

            System.out.println(timedateString+"  "+temperature);

            try {
                if (dis != null)
                    dis.close();
                if (fis != null)
                    fis.close();
            } catch (IOException e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
            }
            try {
                Thread.sleep(1000);
            } catch (InterruptedException ie) {
                ie.printStackTrace();
            }
        }
    }

   public static double roundDouble(double value) {
        double result = value * 100;
        result = Math.round(result);
        result = result / 100;
        return(result);
   }
}

Compile using javac, lather, rinse, repeat. And, here's the output running on the RPi (NOTE: Remember, you must run as root to access the /dev/ldusb0 device):

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo java -jar TurkeyTweeter.jar
Thu Nov 21 16:42:59  71.59
Thu Nov 21 16:43:00  72.39

Thu Nov 21 16:43:08  72.39
Thu Nov 21 16:43:09  72.39
...
As you can see, it's 72 degrees Fahrenheit in my office. The turkey won't be that temperature roasting in the oven on Thanksgiving, but we have now confirmed this part of the Turkey Tweeter works. Exciting, isn't it? <img src=" title=":-)" style="border: none;" /> Next up, we will write the Java code to tweet out the values of our poor turkey as it cooks... (Yeah, poor turkey until it's inside my tummy. Then, it's yummy turkey!)

Internet of Things (IoT) Thanksgiving Special: Turkey Tweeter (Part 2)

In the spirit of Thanksgiving this week being celebrated on Thursday in the USA

This post is shared from our Oracle Java Community. 
Hinkmond Wong's Weblog

By now you should have received your Vernier Go!Temp USB Temperature Probe and it is getting really close now to Turkey Day, so you want kick your Internet of Things (IoT) Turkey Tweeter project into high gear now.

First, we need to test the temperature probe before sticking it into unknown places, namely our delicious IoT bird on Thanksgiving. So, take your Go!Temp USB temperature probe and plug it into your Raspberry Pi device, just like in this photo.

See:

Connect Go!Temp Probe

If all went well on your Raspberry Pi, you should be able to bring up a terminal shell connected to your RPi and type "lsusb" to verify that the Go!Temp probe is now connected.

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9512 Standard Microsystems Corp.
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp.
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 08f7:0002 Vernier EasyTemp/Go!Temp

If your output looks like above, especially the last line where it says the Vernier Go!Temp was recognized and is connected as Device 005, you are golden.

One last check before we start to program using a Java SE Embedded app to grab the temperature readings is to make sure the /dev/ldusb0 device is present. So, type this command and make sure your output matches:

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ ls -l /dev/ldusb0
crw------T 1 root root 180, 176 Nov 18 17:25 /dev/ldusb0

If all that looks good, you're ready for the next step which is to write a Java SE Embedded app to read the temperature values, and eventually write code with IoT intelligence to tweet out the status of your turkey while it's cooking so that it becomes an Internet of Things connected bird on Twitter. Look for that in the next part of this series... Mmmmm... I can almost smell that turkey roasting... <img src=" title=":-)" style="border: none;" />

It's time for the Internet of Things (ioT) Thanksgiving Special. This time we are going to work on a special Do-It-Yourself project to create an Internet of Things temperature probe to connect your Turkey Day turkey to the Internet by writing a Thanksgiving Day Java Embedded app for your Raspberry Pi which will send out tweets as it cooks in your oven.

If you're vegetarian, don't worry, you can follow along and just run the simulation of the Turkey Tweeter, or better yet, try a tofu version of the Turkey Tweeter.

Here is the parts list:

 1 Vernier Go!Temp USB Temperature Probe
 1 Uncooked Turkey
 1 Raspberry Pi (not Pumpkin Pie)
 1 Roll thermal reflective tape
You can buy the Vernier Go!Temp USB Temperature Probe for $39 from here:http://www.vernier.com/products/sensors/temperature-sensors/go-temp/. And, you can get the thermal reflective tape from any auto parts store. (Don't tell them what you need it for. Say it's for rebuilding your V-8 engine in your Dodge Hemi. Avoids the need for a long explanation and sounds cooler...) <img src=" title=";-)" style="border: none;" />

The uncooked turkey can be found in your neighborhood grocery store. But, if you're making a vegetarian Tofurkey, you're on your own... The Java Embedded app will be the same, though (Java is vegan). <img src=" title=":-)" style="border: none;" />

So, grab all your parts and come back here for the next part of this project...

E2.0 Top 20: What will be millenials and other younger workers expecting from the internal technologies deployed at my company when joining?

We're wrapping up our "Top 20 Enterprise 2.0" Questions & Answers series! We hope you enjoyed the topics we discussed around some of the challenges, best practices and strategies regarding Enterprise 2.0 adoption.

E2.0 Top 20 #20: What will be millenials and other younger workers expecting from the internal technologies deployed at my company when joining?

For digital natives, there is no going back to a world without texting and twittering and facebooking . So at minimum, if you expect these folks to be your customers, your employees and your citizens, then you need to apply their expectations to the next generation of enterprise IT systems. But of far more immediate importance is how much productivity gains businesses and governments are leaving on the table by not following the next generation’s lead. It’s not just the millenials anymore, all workers now are familiar with Web2.0 technologies and expect the same kind of capabilities for Enterprise Systems such as Business Intelligence, CRM, ERP, HCM, and Extranets.  They expect to be able to share content easily inside and outside of the organization, connect with experts rapidly, discuss business challenges internally and externally, and find the right information quickly.  They don’t expect to use systems which are menu driven without rich media, without search, not mobile, and operating in a silo as many ERP, CRM implementations are today.
AIIM (www.aiim.org) survey “Putting Enterprise 2.0 to Work”:

  • Under 40s are twice as likely to be public social network evangelists or enthusiasts than over 40s.
  • There are plenty of evangelists amongst over 40s for internal social networks. They are more likely to be pragmatists than enthusiasts, but are just as willing to participate.

You need a modern user interface and applications which are user friendly, intuitive and efficient. Oracle WebCenter allows us to provide such a layer on top of existing applications and services. Oracle WebCenter is the cornerstone of what Oracle is doing with E2.0: it’s a modern user experience platform for the enterprise and the Web, based on a composite application concept with many integrated social capabilities, so you can build a composite application and add social tools for executing that application. Here are some additional assets where you can learn more.

E2.0 Top 20: What companies should reduce email overload and facilitate the reuse of existing content?

We're continuing on in our "Top 20 Enterprise 2.0" Questions & Answers series! In the coming weeks, we'll be posting topics around some of the challenges, best practices and strategies regarding Enterprise 2.0 adoption. We hope you'll join in the conversations!

E2.0 Top 20 #19: What companies should reduce email overload and facilitate the reuse of existing content?

All companies using a mail solution to share information, for example by sending attachments on a regular basis, are ideal candidates for implementing a collaborative solution.  The collaborative solution will allow all users to be able to access the latest version of the required document, and update it if they have enough rights.  This update can be done right from within the application itself.  This will greatly reduce the amount of mail being sent and stored, and ensure people always have access to the latest version.

E2.0 Top 20: Are enterprise content management and business process management converging towards a more adaptive and dynamic approach to knowledge work?

We're continuing on in our "Top 20 Enterprise 2.0" Questions & Answers series! In the coming weeks, we'll be posting topics around some of the challenges, best practices and strategies regarding Enterprise 2.0 adoption. We hope you'll join in the conversations!

E2.0 Top 20 #18: Are enterprise content management and business process management converging towards a more adaptive and dynamic approach to knowledge work?

Yes they are – these two types of applications are complementary:

  • Many business processes require storing unstructured content at some point, and an enterprise content management solution is the obvious place to do so
  • Information inside content management solutions often needs to be processed alongside other enterprise data, and our Business Process Management tool provides rich capability to design, simulate and run the processes to be able to do so.

Oracle Enterprise Content Management provides comprehensive records management in a consistent, cost-effective way, and enables organizations to consolidate ECM repositories and connect ECM to critical business applications. As Oracle Enterprise Content Management and Oracle BPM both belong to the Oracle Fusion Middleware family - the convergence layer for existing and future Fusion applications and services - they can be easily integrated  simply  assembling services together without writing any additional code. Oracle Application Development Framework enables rapid application development through composition instead of coding, lowering the barriers for an enterprise to make changes. Learn more!
