Oracle Integration Approach to RPA by Phil Wilkins

image

With the recent announcement of working with Automation Anywhere (press release here) adding to the partnership already in place with UiPath, Oracle’s approach to Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is differing to other players such as SAP and Pega Systems for example who have acquired vendors.

It is an interesting question as to whether partnering is the right solution given that RPA vendors can and do challenge the need for an integration platform. After all with the exception of IoT most solutions have an some form of UI or API the robot can connect to. This assertion whilst isn’t wrong it fundamentally overlooks the ability to push transaction volumes through, UIs are vulnerable to change, the ability to apply very robust security. But when discussing integration needs with business rather than technology leaders such factors can be so easily overlooked.

Whilst acquisition is a possibility, unless Oracle acquires one of the big three (Automation Anywhere, UiPath, Blue Prism) they are likely to end up with a less established and/or less feature rich offering, that could very easily be perceived as an expensive OIC adaptor. Where as by having now partnered with two of the three major players, it is easier to sell the story that the technologies can be complimentary. Read the complete article here.

Oracle Integration has the best of breed RSO (Robotic Service Orchestration) support by Nicolas Damonte

image

But before justifying it, let’s start by explaining what RSO is and the differences with RPA.

The What …

RSO (Robotic Service Orchestration) is basically managing bots in the context of a business process, just like they would manage people.

RPA (Robotic Process Automation) enables the automation of manual tasks using UI Scrapping technologies. The value proposition is using bots to perform repetitive manual tasks (like data entry) mainly on legacy systems (with no APIs).

The Difference …

RPA was designed to performs tasks, not to manage end to end services.
RSO is about end to end services, managing their full orchestration and fostering a continuous improvement lifecycle.

The Justification …

Create a Decision Model for Your Business Process – free on-demand training

imageYou need to make decisions about your customers, your employees, and your business every day. In this learning path, you’ll learn how to automate your decision making.

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

In business, decisions are everywhere. Should this loan application or document change be approved? Should emergency vehicles be dispatched to this incident? How many bonus shopping points is this shopping cart worth?

Have you ever left your house and wished you were better prepared for the weather?

In this learning path, you’ll build a decision model that makes the decision for you. You’ll create a simple process application that asks you to input the current temperature and the chance of rain. Based on the forecast, the application decides whether you should bring:

· An umbrella, for warm and rainy weather

· A raincoat, for cold and rainy weather

· An overcoat, for cold and dry weather

· Nothing, for warm and dry weather

What are Embeddable Oracle Integration Cloud Process Components and why are they important? By Tom Albrecht

image

To get their job done, today’s knowledge worker is often forced to use many different application user interfaces.  For example, they may be using Oracle Sales Cloud to review their Sales Opportunities, and then have to navigate to a completely different application UI (with a different look and feel) to approve some other sales related tasks. Why not consolidate this experience and give the knowledge worker the experience of performing their work in the context of where they spend most of their time?

The purpose of this Blog is to describe how this can be accomplished by demonstrating how Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) Process Components can be embedded inside of an external application so that the knowledge worker can stay within the context of the main application where they perform their work.

Process Cloud delivers a set of embeddable components.   These components include Start Form, Task Detail, Task List, History Component, and many others. These components can be found on your OIC Server at the following URL: Read the complete article here

Oracle Dynamic Process Calling Structured Process Caveat by Jan Kettenis

image

When implementing a Dynamic Process, there currently are three options to implement a case activity: Human Task, Service (or Integration), and Process. At least up to version 18.4.5.0.0 there is limitation when defining the interface in case of a Process Activity making that you cannot use a Business Type which is based on an XSD element, which on its turn in based on a complexType. The below describes the problem you will run into, and a suggestion of how to work-around this.

When developing XSD’s for web services you may have developed the practice of defining a complexType with an element based on that complexType, for example as in the below XSD. Reason could be that you developed with the (on-premise) SOA or BPM Suite and found this to give the best flexibility, especially when integrating with Oracle Business Rules. Read the complete article here.
