How robotics can humanise your workforce by Barry O’Reilly

image

Previously in this blog series, we’ve explored some examples of how businesses and software vendors are using automated intelligence (AI) and application programming interfaces (APIs) to innovate with disparate data sources—combining them to deliver greater value for customers and workforces.

Another area of innovation that’s improving the way organisations go about their business and the way they serve their customers is robotic process automation (RPA). For many, when they think of RPA, they think of large, cumbersome mechanical processes augmented by robots and industrial machinery. But take a moment to consider how many repetitive, low-value, mechanical and time-consuming—yet essential—tasks are carried out by members of your workforce.

What is RPA?

For some time, one of the main barriers to automation has been the ability to replicate human operations for repetitive tasks. RPA bridges this gap with robots that are easy to train, don’t require changes to your underlying legacy systems, and—crucially—can execute flawlessly. Beyond the physical robotic applications that we’re perhaps more familiar with, software robots can also be trained to log into a system, enter information, port data between SaaS and on-premise applications, and commit transactions—just as human operators would do.

So what about your business? How many of your daily business operations—the tasks and processes you perform routinely—could now be taken over or enhanced with RPA? And if your workforce was relieved of the burden of those tasks, how would you take advantage of the extra resource made available?

RPA in action

Consider these two cases in point. US-based broadcast group, Sinclair, implemented its ‘One Sinclair Experience’ transformation after a period of major merger and acquisition activity. Their aim was to provide a simple, tablet-based interface for marketing consultants to sell their national solutions at a local level—comprised of offerings from across all the newly acquired companies. The resulting tablet-ready experience uses RPA as part of a solution that’s drawn together back office services from across all the companies, resulting in 12x faster process and 45% lower total costs.

Migration from Oracle BPM to Oracle Autonomous Integration Cloud – Streamlining Process Automation in the Cloud by Andre Boaventura

image

In my last blog post Migrating your Oracle BPM assets into Oracle Process Cloud Service (PCS), I have described and demonstrated how to migrate modeling assets (essentially BPMN models) by leveraging the conversion framework that you can find at my repository at GitHub.

As stated on the blog post above, the major use case was to demonstrate how customers using Oracle BPM Composer for modeling purposes *ONLY* could streamline their migration process from Oracle BPM into PCS. Also, as declared earlier, I have seen many customers that are using BPM for documentation purposes only, but at the other end, and as you might be likely asking yourself, there are many others that have already developed many projects and processes on top of the Oracle BPM not only for documentation purposes, but indeed for process automation, and obviously want to move them to the respective cloud version of Oracle BPM (aka PCS), given all the very known benefits of cloud adoption such as lower costs, greater agility, improved responsiveness and better resource utilization among other technical and business drivers.

Thus, with Process Automation in mind, asset migration from Oracle BPM to PCS becomes an even more serious matter, but the good news is that this is really possible.

As the major goal of my posts is to share experiences that I have seen with customers I have worked in the field, the following technique you will find below obviously could not avoid the rule. This exercise came as a challenge from a specific customer that was running in production all their processes on Oracle BPM for process automation purposes, so this means it also can be applied to many others since there is an increasing demand for this sort of migration given the high number of customers relying on Oracle BPM for process automation, and which at the same time, want to bring their processes to the Cloud as well. Look at the video below for a quick introduction about the Oracle BPM Path to the Cloud. Read the complete article here.

Jarvis Pizzeria: Custom Reports & Dashboards by Richard Olrichs & Marcel van de Glind & Marc Kuijpers

image

In our previous blog we showed the out of the box functionality of Dashboard & Reporting. Next to the default dashboards, you can also create your own custom dashboards. However, before we can create dashboards on this, we need to set up some indicators within our application. In the composer we have to go to the tab Indicators.

There are three types of indicators that you can create here:

  • A Dimension represents the grouping on the X axis,
  • A Measure will be the value of the Y Axis.
  • An Attribute, in turn, will act as a filter.

You can define customer indicators that you can bind to any data objects available in your process. They will become available for reporting alongside with the default system indicators.On the Indicators tab, we can create new indicators. Read the complete article here.

Case Management and the Microprocess Architecture by Jan Kettenis

image 

In this article I introduce the concept of the Microprocesses Architecture which addresses some important limitations of traditional monolith Case Management applications.
This article has been updated on 2018-05-21 to correct a link to a previous blog article.
In the Oracle Integration Cloud a Case Management application consists of at least one Dynamic Process that on its turn consists of Case Activities. A Case Activity is implemented by a (structured) Process, or a Human Task. The unit of deployment is an Application, which consists of one or more Dynamic Processes plus the implementations of the activities (Processes, Human Tasks), and may also include a couple of Forms (plus some more).
The same application can have multiple revisions (versions) deployed at the same time, each having its own Revision Id. There can only be one default revision. It is important to realize that once an instance of a case is started, it stays running in the same revision. In contrast to the (on-premise) Oracle BPM Suite there (currently) is no way to move, or migrate as it is called, the instance from one revision to another. That holds for Dynamic Process as well as the implementation of its activities. Read the complete article here.

“How we respond to the opportunities and challenges of the outside world now determines how much the outside world values us.”

– Seth Godin, Linchpin: Are You Indispensable?

The Future of Digital Workforce Automation

I think about the future of work in the intelligent enterprise a lot. I have two brilliant kids just entering the workforce and a bright three year old. I’m always amazed by their creativity, resilience, and engagement in the mashed up real and virtual worlds they were born into. Disruptive technologies such as process automation with RPA and conversational AI offer the hope that my kids will never have to cut and paste across devices, apps, and reports.

Less mechanics, more design, faster time to market. That’s what scales. Orchestrating dynamic interactions among employees, intelligent bots, and robots is the quickest way to build your digital workforce.

In this segment of our podcast series, we discuss how process automation paves the way for AI optimization while providing the governance that financial services, healthcare, public sector, manufacturing, and retail firms need to grow new revenue streams.

Check out the 10 minute podcast here

AI and the Enterprise

IDC is forecasting that spending on AI and machine learning will grow from $8B in 2016 to $47B by 2021. Automation, pervasive integration, machine learning, and AI technologies are so ubiquitous that more than 68 percent of us trust and leverage these powerful technologies without knowing it. What began as consumer focused selling and investing is entering the enterprise, and transformation leaders need to know how to employ these and related disruptive technologies to grow share of wallet and reach new markets in the attention economy.

Process automation and API-first design thinking pave the way for optimizing customer and employee engagement with conversational AI and best next action recommendations. Robotic Process Automation is a hot topic because: Read the complete article here.

Very simple scenario here –
I create a new organization in a VB CS generated UI.
From this UI, I can kick off a PCS Process to approve the new organization.
It is very easy to create Business Object definitions in VB CS. the first 4 fields above are created by default (creationDate etc). VB CS knows about the processes deployed in my AIC instance, in my case, only the one.Read the complete article here.
