Comparing a brand new Oracle Process Cloud Service (PCS) with traditional on-premise Oracle BPM Suite by Lukasz Romaszewski

 

clip_image002As you may have heard, Oracle is quickly extending its middleware stack to the public cloud platform, by implementing there, one by one, every possible piece of technology from its portfolio. One of the most successful and powerful component of the traditional Fusion Middleware stack is Oracle BPM, which has been widely adopted in many organizations and companies to drive down the costs and increase agility and business control over all of the business processes in place. No surprise that BPM is one of the first technology to become available in the cloud, in the form of Process Cloud Services. In this blog post I would like to take you in the quick tour over PCS, how it looks like, and most important thing – what are the differences between the traditional on-premise version and the new cloudify BPM.

Which of course clearly puts this product into the business toolbox, rather than developer/IT one. The very first thing which you notice once you open your instance of PCS is the new Alta look&feel, consistent with every other cloud product made by Oracle:
