Empower your Business Users with Integration Insight by Simone Geib

image

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of Integration Insight for Oracle Integration Generation 2.  This is a truly differentiated offering from the Oracle Integration team in the EiPaaS market. Integration Insight is releasing as a new Oracle Integration (OIC) Generation 2 feature and is now available in all data centers worldwide.

Why Integration Insight?

Today’s competitive market demands that stakeholders understand, monitor, and react to rapidly changing conditions. Businesses need flexible, dynamic, and detailed insight – and they need it as it happens.

Collecting, storing, visualizing, and reporting on business metrics in real time has traditionally been a costly undertaking, requiring significant investment of capital and engineering resources. Software is typically developed to meet the unique needs of business applications. In today’s sophisticated enterprise software environment, many businesses use multiple integrated systems, provided by a variety of vendors, further complicating the task of collecting business metrics.

Integration Insight dramatically simplifies the process of modeling and extracting meaningful business metrics to help you understand, monitor, and react quickly to changing demands. Integration Insight has released as a new Oracle Integration (OIC) Generation 2 feature and is available today in the navigation menu of your Integration instance. Learn more about Integration Insight here.

Announcing CMMN Method and Style by Bruce Silver

image

Those familiar with my past writings may be surprised that I have written a book on the Case Management Model and Notation (CMMN) standard, because when CMMN was launched in 2014, I was unenthusiastic and vocal about it.  Business process modeling already had a standard – BPMN 2.0 – that was widely adopted by both business and technical modelers.  Why did we now need a different one?  CMMN’s creators maintained that it was necessary because there are many kinds of processes that BPMN is unable to handle.  Although BPMN could have been tweaked to handle them, those tweaks never happened.  In my opinion, they never will; the BPMN 2.0 spec appears to be forever frozen in stone.

Actually, CMMN’s backers have a valid point.  BPMN does have limitations, and in my BPMN Method and Style training we discuss them.  Those limitations mostly stem from the fact that BPMN’s conception of a process is quite narrow, much narrower in fact than that of BPM Architecture and most other areas of business process management.  For example, many of the “processes” listed in APQC’s Process Classification Framework are not what BPMN would call processes, and many cannot be modeled in BPMN at all.  CMMN, on the other hand, could handle them.  That’s reason number one for my change of heart.  Instead of describing the logic procedurally – following a defined sequence of steps – CMMN logic is declarative, each case element independently defining its own prerequisite conditions.  That gives it great flexibility, but makes the logic harder to communicate clearly. Get the book here. For additional BPM books please see the wiki here.

Oracle Integration Cloud Process Coverage of BPMN 2.0_Standard

image

How the Oracle Integration Cloud Process module supports the OMG BPM2.0 Standard.

This document provides an overview of how Oracle integration Cloud release 20.1.1 supports the BPMN2.0 standard, as defined by the OMG. It is intended solely to help you assess the business benefits of the solution.

This white paper presents in what capacity Oracle Integration Cloud’s Process module supports the OMG BPMN 2.0 Process modeling and execution standard, an accepted standard in the industry of Workflow and Business Process management, further referred as "the OMG document". This white paper is correct as of January 2020, knowing that technology evolves, some elements described here may become erroneous in the future. The OMG document is over 500 pages long, and we have made a synthesis of the key concepts, as they are summarized in Table 7.1 and table 7.2 of the OMG document. These tables define a collection of elements that are summarized here below. It should be noted that arithmetic provides only a short-sighted perspective. Just counting the number of items supported will only give a superficial view of how well Oracle Integration Cloud’s Process module supports the OMG standard. Going a level deeper, one will need to take into account the relative weight of each element, in order to ponder how efficient the tool can be. Within that frame of thought, it can safely be said that an extremely vast majority of business cases can be thoroughly implemented using this solution, as several hundreds, if not thousands, of customers have already done.

OIC: How to Find Human Task by Correlation and How to Abort a Parallel Task by Jan Kettenis

image

This article explains how you can find an instance of a Human Task of process instance in the Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) without knowing its task number, and how you can use that for example to withdraw a parallel task. You can use the same mechanism for other use cases as well, like to get a specific task instance for a specific process instance in a custom Workspace, etc.

When a Human Task is scheduled in a process there is no out-of-the-box way for the process instance to “know” its task number, because scheduling a task concerns an asynchronous call (so you don’t get an immediate response with the task number). So, although the task number is visible in the process flow trace (as shown below), the process instance itself does not know it.

The sample process below has two parallel tasks. The outcome of Parallel Task 2 is either CONTINUE or DONE. When DONE, Parallel Task 1 must be withdrawn. I will use this as a use case to illustrate how setting some “correlation id” on a task can be used to achieve that.

For those of you who remember the on-premise BPM Suite may be aware of the Update Task activity you could use to do just that, but such an activity does not exist in OIC. Instead you will have to use the PUT operation of the /ic/api/process/v1/tasks/{id} API. But as you can see this requires an id, which is the task number that you don’t have. To get that you can use the GET operation on /ic/api/process/v1/tasks first. However, there can be many instances of the same process, implying many instances of the Parallel Task 1, so how to find that one you are looking for? Read the complete article here.
