4 Reasons You Should Look at Process Management in the Cloud by Kris Nelsonnter a post title



Process management in the cloud offers several compelling advantages for both the business and IT teams. I see the pressure to move faster, innovate faster and deliver value immediately to our customers all around us.  Process management in the cloud offers some great ways to enable that agility in your organization. In addition to the reasons you should be looking at this, I will offer a few common use cases we are seeing as Oracle’s Process Cloud Service (PCS) begins to roll out.

Reason 1:  Business-Focused

Cloud solutions like PCS provide a comprehensive process development platform, from modeling to form development through to deployment. This is in a zero-code environment, allowing the business to define, create and manage their own business processes. One example from PCS is the play, test and validate cycle. This allows allows users to see the end-to-end application and walk through the various activities in different process roles. Features like these will allow the business to bring common business processes to market quickly. 

Reason 2:  Zero Footprint

This reason is usually listed #1, as it is one of the main drivers to move applications and systems to the cloud. Being able to quickly provision and standup a process management tool in the cloud has some compelling benefits:

  • Reduced cost to get started:  Reduce the initial capital outlay or help to move dollars from capital to expense spending, depending on your organization’s needs.
  • Faster time to provision: Zero installation means increased speed to market so that you can take advantage of opportunities to either reduce costs with process or differentiate in the marketplace. You can start in a more agile fashion, start smaller and prove things out quickly. Read the complete article here.
