Adaptive Case Management Methodology published in Best Practices for Knowledge Workers (digital edition)

Working on an Adaptive Case Management (ACM) opportunity? Read the ACM Methodology published in the Best Practices for Knowledge Workers (Digital edition) book.

BPM-based solutions have brought major advances to work organization and automation. However, given BPM’s strong basis on formal workflow definition, oftentimes BPM solutions are not well suited for work scenarios where a precise workflow cannot be strictly defined. Work in such scenarios is highly dependent on knowledge-based decisions about activities and outcomes, leading to multiple work paths and business rules that can become quite complex or even unfeasible to model and completely automate. In these cases, a different technology support approach is required. The focus is not to isolate and automate decisions and rules, but rather to deliver opportunistic information support to the knowledge worker to accomplish them. Adaptive Case Management (ACM) rises as a successful design pattern for this. Get the eBook here.

BPM / SOA 12c: Re-configure a compact domain to use a DB-based MDS instead of a File-based MDS by Sven Bernhardt, Danilo Schmiedel

 

clip_image001The Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Business Process Management Suite offers different domain configuration types applicable for different use cases. For details check out the two guides: Installing SOA Suite and Business Process Management Suite Quick Start for Developers as well as Installing and Configuring Oracle SOA Suite and Business Process Management.

 

Default Domain

Standalone Domain

Compact Domain

Full Domain

Description

Integrated WebLogic Server from JDeveloper

Standalone Admin Server with SOA/BPM

Standalone Admin Server with SOA/BPM

Full installation with separate servers for SOA, OSB, BAM, Admin Server, etc.

Installed via

Quick Start distribution

Quick Start distribution

Quick Start distribution

FMW 12c Infrastructure +
FMW 12c SOA Suite and Business Process Management

Used for

Local development and debugging, especially for demos or evaluation purposes

Local development and debugging, especially for developers who want to use the Oracle Service Bus Design Time Console instead of JDeveloper

Local development with SOA components that are incompatible with JavaDB (ESS, MFT, B2B, Heathcare, BAM, ACM API)

All stages Development (shared), Integration, Test, Production

Repository

Pre-configured Java DB

Pre-configured Java DB

Oracle Database (please note that MDS and OWSM are file-based)

Oracle Database

For all of the domain options which are installed via quickstart distributions, SOA and B2B use the MDS file system. This means that the edit function in SOA Composer is not supported and so Business Rules and Domain Value Maps cannot be changed during runtime & without a new deployment . For the development in our projects we very often use the compact domain. The change of business rules without re-deployment is quite important for us because we work a lot with Adaptive Case Management – and there Business Rules and live changes without re-deployment are a key benefit (which we also like to show in demos / POCs / etc.).

ACM Implementation Best Practices at Fusion Middleware Partner Community Forum 2015

The Fusion Middleware Partner Community Forum takes place March 3rd & 4th in Budapest Hungary. During this annual conference You as an Oracle Partner can get the latest updates on the Fusion Middleware 12c solutions. “The Cloud Platform for Digital Business” will be the theme of the 20th conference. Keynotes will be delivered from Amit Zavery, Andrew Sutherland and SOA, BPM and Mobile product management including live demos. On the second day you can choose between three tracks: SOA, BPM or WebLogic and Mobile. As part of the BPM track Danilo Schmiedel and Andrejus Baranovskis will present:

ACM Implementation Best Practices

With Oracle BPM Suite the modeling, simulation, implementation and execution of business processes in a multi-user environment is straightforward. But how about unstructured, ad-hoc processes which are too complex and too flexible to put them into a rigid BPMN model? Think about a claim notification after a car accident – it is very difficult to model each potential option of it and a lot of effort and time is necessary to bring all varieties into the process. Think about the user interface – it has to be very dynamic in order to make optimal business decisions. If you have similar challenges this session is made for you! The speakers will provide an excellent view on implementing knowledge-intensive processes from multiple ADF & BPM projects around globe.
