    ACMAwards2015Release: 01.2015

    We're proud to announce the opening of the Adaptive Case Management Global Excellence Awards 2015!
    The ACM Awards are the ideal way to be recognized by the industry, to publicly acknowledge and recognize the efforts of your team and to inject passion in to your case management excellence.

    Adaptive Case Management (ACM) and Production Case Management (PCM) are new technological approaches to supporting knowledge workers in today's leading edge organizations. The practice of ACM is rapidly growing. To help people learn and adopt this approach, the Workflow Management Coalition has instituted the ACM Global Excellence Awards to gather and recognize some of the best examples. Do you have an interesting Use Case? Start by simply submitting an abstract for the opportunity to win an award and publication in a new book on ACM to be published in the Fall. Previous years’ winners have been published in there two books: Taming the Unpredictable and How Knowledge Workers Get Things Done.

    Abstracts are due on Feb 18 2015, and completed submission is due in April. You still have time to get global recognition for the work you have been doing. Finalists and winners are selected by a panel of 16 volunteer judges drawn from experts in this field, headed by an Advisory Panel comprising Tom Koulopoulos, Delphi Group, Hugh McKellar, KMWorld and Connie Moore, Forrester Research.

  • Adaptive Case Management Modeling with CMMN

    Jessica3byJessica Ray published inSOA Magazine III

    A new version of Oracle BPM Suite 11.1.1.7 with Adaptive Case Management (ACM) is now available, so what will that mean for requirements gathering? BPM project requirements can be documented using Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN 2.0). For ACM, there is a new notation in the works. It is called Case Management Model and Notation (CMMN). For now, this notation isn’t included as a modeling tool in the new version of Oracle BPM Suite 11.1.1.7 with ACM, but it is possible that a modeling tool could be included in a future release.

    What is CMMN?

    CMMN is a standard intended to capture the common elements that Case Management Products use, the same way that BPMN is a standard for BPM products (such as Oracle BPM). CMMN is created by the Object Management Group (OMG) and is still in the beta version. In April 2014, OMG released the second beta version the CMMN 1.0, and the most recent version is available here.

    CMMN captures some of the elements that are commonly used when talking about ACM such as Cases, Milestones, and Tasks. It also introduces some elements that you may not automatically hear when talking about ACM such as Stages, Events, and Decorators. Here is a quick summary at a few (but not all) of the elements of CMMN taken from the CMMN spec.

     

  • BPM 12c Gateways

    Gateway12by Antonis Antonioupublished inSOA Magazine IV

    Oracle BPM provides us with various components to control the flow of a process such as gateways, timer events, errors, message events, send and receive tasks, loop markers and multi-instance markers. In this article I will be elaborating the gateway control flow components and how we can use them to define the flow of our process. Gateways are very similar to a flowchart decision element. Using a gateway you can define the control points within your process by splitting and merging paths. At runtime a gateway will determine based on the control points defined at design time the path that a token will take through a process. There are five gateway types; Exclusive Gateway (XOR), Inclusive Gateway (OR),  Parallel Gateway, Event Based Gateway and Complex Gateway

  • Design Principles for Process-driven Architectures Using Oracle BPM and SOA Suite 12c

    SOABPMPacktRelease: 6.2015
    Authors: Matjaz B. Juric, Sven Bernhardt, Hajo Normann, Danilo Schmiedel, Guido Schmutz, Mark Simpson, Torsten Winterberg

    This book is a design handbook and provides skills to successfully design, implement, and optimize business processes on top of SOA. Starting with business process modeling, it shows design principles to architect sound process architectures. It presents best practices for modeling business processes using BPMN, together with design principles for services and composite applications. It provides detailed coverage of how to prepare business processes for execution. An in-depth explanation of human interactions is given and also principles and best practices for using rules.

    Moving on, Adaptive Case Management principles are explained, along with the reach of business processes to mobile devices and ensuring multichannel interactions. Business activity monitoring, event-driven architectures, complex event processing in relation to business processes, and enabling integration with events and IoT devices are explained. The design principles and best practices are demonstrated in a practical way on a rental car use case.  For more infomation please visit Packt bookstore here.

  • Die Evolution von BPM: Du bist der Prozess!

    Release: Jaxenter & Business Technology Magazin März 2014
    Authors: Jürgen Kress, Berthold Maier, Hajo Normann, Danilo Schmiedel, Guido Schmutz, Bernd Trops, Clemens Utschig-Utschig und Torsten Winterberg 

    Effizienzsteigerung durch Prozessautomatisierung: ein Anspruch, der sich durch die Geschichte zieht – durch Henry Ford geprägt und eindrucksvoll in der industriellen Fertigung schon umgesetzt – goldrichtig für den „Production Worker“. Heute aber schreien die Menschen vor ihren Bildschirmen auf, wenn sie durch ein zu starres Prozesskorsett in immer gleiche Aufgabenlisten und Maskenflüsse gezwungen werden, die innovatives und situationsadäquates Handeln erschweren oder gar ganz verhindern.

    Effizienzsteigerung wird nicht mehr durch die simple Automatisierung von Routinetätigkeiten erreicht (dies ist schon in heutiger Standard-ERP-Software abgebildet). Es geht darum, den heutigen Wissensarbeitern oder „Knowledge Workern“ einen optimalen Arbeitsplatz zur Verfügung zu stellen, um bestmögliche Entscheidungen für das Unternehmen treffen zu können. Dazu muss in Business-Process-Management-(BPM-)Initiativen der Mensch wieder in den Vordergrund treten: als am Prozess Beteiligter, der nicht vollständig über Prozessmodelle gesteuert wird, sondern aktiv und unmittelbar zur Verbesserung beiträgt.

  • Process Cloud, a game changer in process implementations

    pcs3by Léon Smiers and Jeroen van Essen published inSOA Magazine V

    Oracle is accelerating the delivery of all of its Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions and Platform as a Service (PaaS) solutions to gain market share in the cloud space. The Oracle Process Cloud Services (PCS), a Paas Solution, is one of the new services that is delivered now in controlled availability to a selected set of customers, and will be general available in the near future. With this service we are entering a new era for development and management of processes with Oracle technology. The cloud based delivery and management model of the processes is aimed at simplification and improvement of time-to-market. 

    PCS builds on top of the already existing Oracle BPM technology. The delivery of functionality towards the cloud will be gradually extended in the coming releases. We see this product as a potential game-changer in the market, because of the simplicity and possible mash-up scenarios with other Oracle PaaS offerings and on-premise applications.

    In this article we will have a quick glance at what the Process Cloud offers, look at typical use cases and see the look-and-feel of development.
