New Oracle BPM Suite Version Released


The version of Oracle Business Process Management (BPM) 10g Release 3 discussed at Oracle World in Septmeber (see http://www.bpminaction.com/blog/2008/09/oracle_bites_the_bpm_in_the_na.php) is now available. It is said to the first Oracle/BEA "Unified Release," addressing the requirements of both business analysts and IT. Amlan Debnath, the responsible Oracle executive who is quoted below, provided a guest editorial here on ebizQ back in two parts in June 2008 (see http://www.ebizq.net/topics/bpm/features/9646.html)

ebizQ received the following:

Oracle has unveiled Oracle Business Process Management 10g Release 3 (Oracle BPM 10g R3), a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware. The new release allows business and IT users to collaboratively automate and optimize business processes enabling improved efficiency and agility.

Oracle BPM 10g R3 features a new user interface, new modeling capabilities, new business rules and the ability to import models from third-party tools. Available as part of the Oracle Business Process Management Suite, Oracle Business Process Management 10g Release 3 is the latest in a series of offerings that integrates technology from Oracle and BEA Systems and illustrates Oracle’s rapid progress in unifying industry-leading software from the two companies.

Oracle says individuals using Oracle BPM 10g R3 will benefit from the following:

  • Re-designed user-interface that studies have shown enhances business process interaction and collaboration. New features include WorkSpace Layouts and customizable widget organization as well dashboards that can be generated on-the-fly by knowledge workers

  • Improved integration with Microsoft Office and Really Simple Syndication (RSS)

Business Analysts will benefit from enhancements in the software including:

  • Intuitive modeling with enhanced support of the Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN) standard

  • Integration with Oracle BPA Suite and XPDL 1.0/2.0 support

  • Improved complex rule definition and documentation linked to dynamic routing on business processes

  • BPM Project inheritance to promote service and process reusability

For IT professionals, Oracle BPM 10g R3 is said to deliver:

  • Support for Oracle WebLogic Server 10g R3 and Sybase ASE 15.0

  • Out-of-the-box certified interoperability with Oracle Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) Process Manager, Oracle Service Bus and Oracle WebCenter Suite

  • Ability to create and edit process forms from any location with a WYSIWYG forms editor

  • Ability to aggregate multiple BPM instances with federated access to BPM deployments to unify administration experience

  • New process level debugging in BPM Studio complementing the existing activity level debugging

“While Business Process Management requirements are typically driven by business analysts, IT experts and operational personnel are impacted by the technology decisions business analysts make,” said Amlan Debnath, senior vice president, Server Technologies, Oracle. “Oracle’s BPM software addresses the needs of both audiences by uniquely enabling collaboration between business analysts and IT personnel.”
