Thoughts on Gartner RPA Magic Quadrant. RPA is no magic silver bullet! By Eduardo Chiocconi

image

During the course of this month, Gartner published a new research (MQ) about Robotic Process Automation (aka: RPA). You can get this report directly from Gartner or get one of the approved distributed reprints from the RPA leads in the Magic Quadrant (UiPath, BluePrism, etc).

Gartner indeed warrants the RPA technology the merits of being the fastest growing technology in the last couple of years and I am a witness in first person of this fact. In the Integration space, RPA has been a true disruptor, where RPA is used to cover different use cases that I have covered in other posts [Value of RPA and Use Cases] as well as webinars with joint Partners like eAlliance and JOLT Technologies. RPA is indeed a true disruptor in the space. If you want to check a replay of one of the webinar place follow this link: [Webinar Replay].

As I read the full introduction report before the individual vendor analysis, I was also surprised with the amount of cautionary comments and concerns if RPA is not used in the proper context and scenarios. They do a very good job at covering attended and unattended RPA use cases and that the majority of the RPA projects are really about screen scraping. Read the complete article here.

OIC Process – Decision Tables or, as we say in Ireland, Táblaí Rialacha! By Niall Commiskey

image

I have only touched on this feature superficially in previous posts – now to some more detail!
Again, all quotes lifted from the docs are in italics.
Decisions is a very powerful feature in OIC.
Rules can be created within OIC Process applications, and are easily leveraged within your processes,
via the Decision Activity.

Not only that, Decisions can operate standalone; you can expose your Decision Model as a REST service to the outside world. Ergo, you can leverage rules from OIC Integrations, Visual Builder or any REST aware 3rd party app.
So let’s begin… Again – the business value add – Decision Models allow you to automate the decision logic inherent in your business processes. These models adhere to the DMN standard 1.1.and are FEEL aware – Friendly Enough Expression Language.This makes it easier for you to define your rules. So now to some simple examples – as you can see Decisions can be of different types. Read the complete article here.

How to build approval process: Oracle Process Cloud by Ankur Jain

image

This blog will show the step-by-step process on how to create a process which involves a start activity, decision flow, human task, end event, etc in Oracle Process Cloud. We will use the "Form Approval Pattern" to develop the process and edit it as per our business need.

In this article, we will create a Loan Processing application in which user fills the loan application which goes to the approver if the loan amount is greater than >100 else the loan application will be auto-approved.

In the previous article, we showcased how to develop a simple process from scratch.

The process will look like below at the end of this article.

Let’s see how to use “Form Approval Pattern” in Oracle Process Cloud.

Machine Learning in Digital Process Automation — Part I by Ralf Mueller

image

This is the first of a multi-part series of articles on how to use Machine Learning (ML) in Digital Process Automation and Integration applications in Oracle Integration Cloud. For this series, we’re using a mix of Oracle Cloud Services and implement a couple of use cases step by step. The first article (this one) focuses on setting up the Machine Learning environment and implementing the Machine Learning Model for our first use case.

Example Use Case

Approval Workflows are very popular examples of Process Automation applications since approvals are widely used in any organization, for example

  • Approve hiring of employee in Employee Onboarding process
  • Approve purchase of equipment in Procurement process
  • Approve travel expenses in Travel Management process
  • etc. etc.

The list can go on and on. For this series though, we take a use case from Sales and want to implement the following scenario

  • Orders from customers are coming in from Sales Reps of a company
  • Orders have, among other data, the following relevant information
    – Amount of the order
    – Quarter when the order was created (1, 2, 3, 4)
    – Customer Status (green, yellow, red)
    – Requested Discount by the customer (0–99%)
  • Depending on the order information, we want to predict whether the order should be approved by a Sales VP for the given quarter.

This is a typical situation for any company where Sales Reps bring in orders from customers and a Sales VP has to decide, if the order should be approved for this quarter or not. Especially towards a quarter-end, this can become quite stressful for the Sales VP, so some automation here would improve the Sales Process significantly and could help to handle more orders.

· Make sure you’ve installed VNC Viewer Client on the personal computer

· Verify "ssh" command running in windows command prompt. If not found then install Cygwin by running setup-x86_64.exe (64-bit installation) which can be download from https://www.cygwin.com/

Managing API Gateway Costs with Oracle API Platform by Phil Wilkins

image

The Oracle API Platform adopted an intelligent pricing model by basing costs on API call volumes and Logical gateway node groupings per hour. In our book about the API Platform (more here). We suggested that a good logical grouping would be to reflect the development, test, preproduction and production model. This makes it nice and easy to use gateway based routing to different environments without needing to change the API policy configuration as you promote your solution through environments.

We have also leveraged naming and Role/Group Based Access Controls to make to make it easy to operate the API Platform as a shared service, rather than each team having its own complete instance. In doing so the number of logical gateways needed is limited (I.e. not logical gateway divisions on per team models needed). Group management is very easy through the leveraging of Oracle’s Identity Cloud Service – which is free for managing users on the Oracle solutions, and also happens to a respected product in its own right.

OIC – Salesforce Adapter – Bulk API by Niall Commiskey

image

As the name suggests –
It allows one to perform Bulk Data Operations:
Inserts, updates, upserts, or deletes of a large volume of records. For those interested, the SFDC Bulk API Doc is here

An extract from the aforementioned –
Bulk API is based on REST principles and is optimized for loading or deleting large sets of data. You can use it to query, queryAll, insert, update, upsert, or delete many records asynchronously by submitting batches. Salesforce processes batches in the background.
SOAP API, in contrast, is optimized for real-time client applications that update a few records at a time. You can use SOAP API for processing many records, but when the data sets contain hundreds of thousands of records, SOAP API is less practical. Bulk API is designed to make it simple to process data from a few thousand to millions of records.
The easiest way to use Bulk API is to enable it for processing records in Data Loader using CSV files. Using Data Loader avoids the need to write your own client application. Read the complete article here.
