Robotic Process Automation and AI – Webcast December 5th 2017

imageSimplify Legacy Complexity to Turbo Charge Digital Transformation

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a hot topic because its easy record and playback capability enables you to deliver immediate results while putting you on the fast-track to AI-powered recommendations and Adaptive Case Management. If you’ve got legacy systems of record, dashboards, or spreadsheets you manage manually, RPA’s computer vision technology with Oracle Cloud Platform for Integration and Automation can take on mundane tasks and free up critical resources to help you grow your business.
Join Oracle’s Vikas Anand, VP Product Management, and Bobby Patrick, UiPath’s CMO on this webcast as we discuss how Oracle Integration Cloud with RPA can help you:

BAM Data Objects by Marcel van de Glind

image

In previous posts, I’ve focused on the components around BAM (starting with Impact of ACM Implementation on BAM). Now is will start with a number of posts that are related to the components of BAM. Hereby I will use the image below. The image comes from the BAM documentation of Oracle. This post will mainly be about Data objects.

A BAM data object models data for use within BAM. It contains the data to be monitored. The data can be saved in raw format in a database or in an external table. The data can also be a stream from an ongoing activity.

A data object is structured like a table, with columns and rows. A column can be one of these types:

  1. A measure column contains numeric data, such as procedure costs or case processing times.
  2. A dimension column contains data used to group or partition numeric data, such as departments or case type.
  3. An attribute column contains information that can be used for filtering or references, such as an ID or a timestamp.

A hierarchy is a set of dimension columns in a data object with a hierarchical relationship, such as Judicial system, Department, Team and Employee.

The following types of data objects exist:

  1. A simple data object is used as is. It can contain indexes and hierarchies, but no other column additions or modifications. It corresponds to a database view in the BAM database. Other data objects can use or refer to simple data objects.
  2. A derived data object extends a simple data object or another derived data object. It inherits the columns and hierarchies of the parent data object and adds its own columns. Read the complete article here.

BAM Database by Marcel van de Glind

image

Recently I did a POC with BAM 12c at the customer. In a series of post’s I will describe my findings/experiences.
In the first post I described the initial situation (Impact of ACM Implementation on BAM). And in the second post I described the solutions we have recognised/examined to make Management Information (MI) available to the ACM implementation.

During this examination we also looked in detail to the BAM database. The relevant findings of this are described in this post.

In this description we begin from BAM. The Data Objects of the ACM case with associated Case Activities can be found in the processanalytics directory of BAM. See figure below.

The default Data Object ‘Activity ‘ looks like this.

Where it is about here is that there is a reference to the used database view (BEAM_VIEW_25). We also see that the ALIAS field is not filled in. In the following custom Data Object we see that there is an ALIAS filled in.

The filled in alias is the ‘Synonym’ of the view on the database. In the list below we see that there is a synonym on the database for beam_view_116 and for beam_view_25 that this is not the case. Read the complete article here.

PCS 17.1.3 leveraging ICS by Niall Commiskey

image

Now we have even tighter integration between PCS and ICS. Together they provide us with an unbeatable process and integration platform.
Let’s start with a simple example –
Here is my ICS process – all it does is create an organization in Service Cloud.

Now to PCS – I can "register" my ICS environment in Workspace (Administration – Services).

Now to my process – this is a simple order process. The order comes from an organization.
A confirmation email is sent to the Org email address, once the order has been approved. Read the complete article here.

Migrating your Oracle BPM assets into Oracle Process Cloud Service (PCS) by Andre Boaventura

image

If you are already an Oracle BPM user, it is likely that you might have heard or even ventured in its respective cloud version called Oracle Process Cloud Service (aka PCS). Essentially, Oracle PCS is a solution that enables you to rapidly design, automate, and manage business processes, as well as it is done with Oracle BPM, however the major advantage is that you can do everything in the cloud, without any concerns with infrastructure installation, setup and provisioning while keeping IT teams focused on high-value projects rather than endless tuning, monitoring, troubleshooting and workarounds, as regularly it is required to be done for on-premise projects, which in turn, allows you to focus on the business value of your solution, that is what really matters whenever we  talk about Business Process Management.

I have been working with several Oracle BPM customers in the last few years in my current role as Senior Principal Product Manager, and I have seen along these years, an increasing demand of Oracle customers wishing to move to cloud as soon as possible, given all the very known benefits that are spurring adoption such as lower costs, greater agility, improved responsiveness and better resource utilization among other technical and business drivers.

Also, there are lots of new customers that want to get started with a streamlined solution to model, design, implement, run and monitor their processes. Thus, as you can notice, Oracle PCS is the perfect match to address all of these customer requirements mentioned above. Read the complete article here.

BAMCommand by Marcel van de Glind

image

Recently I did a POC with BAM 12c at the customer. In a series of post’s I will describe my findings/experiences.
In the first post of this series I described the initial situation (Impact of ACM Implementation on BAM). This post ended up with the following challenge.

We have a ACM Case consisting of about thirty Case Activities. The Case and the individual Case Activities are housed in a private composite (1 + ~30 composites).

Challenge: How can we group/filter in BAM by ‘specific’ metrics that are present in each Composite. For example ‘Department’.

In the second post Filtering/grouping in BAM by ‘specific’ metrics (explored solutions) I have 10 recognized/examined solutions appointed for this challenge.

In this post I will cover the functionalities of BAMCommand that I have used in the implementation/rollout of the EMS configuration (Populating BAM using JMS).

But first, what is BAMCommand?

BAMCommand is the command-line utility to export, import, migrate, clear, and delete BAM metadata, data, and project artifacts.
You can find BAMCommand in the directory ‘FMW_HOME/STD/bam/bin’. By calling BAMCommand without parameters gives you an overview of the possibilities. This overview is shown below: Please read the complete the article here.

In the second post Filtering/grouping in BAM by ‘specific’ metrics (explored solutions) I have 10 recognized/examined solutions appointed for this challenge. In this post one of these solutions (number 10) is further developed.

I will describe an implementation of how to populate BAM via a JMS queue. In a nutshell: we have the following situation:
An ACM Case Management composite (CASE A) with the Case Activities implemented in external BPM processes (Proces 1,2 and 3). The humantask metrics are available in BAM via the ‘default’ channel. For other metrics the composites have to send events. These events are catched by the Event Handling Service. This service puts them on the JMS Queue BAM uses as input source. Graphically represented: Read the complete article here.
