Agiloft Custom Workflow/BPM

Agiloft is perfect for managing requisitions, linking those requisitions to their appropriate contracts (and getting the contracts directly executed via DocuSign or Adobe), notifications on upcoming renewals, spend tracking, trend analysis, contractor access management and ticket automation, audits, and much more. The tool flexible enough to integrate with other platforms but users need to be made aware of the requirements/limitations of the integrations.

Oracle BPM Suite

In my experience, Oracle BPM Suite is better suited for larger, more complex projects in which a visual model is intuitively easier to grasp than a document containing, for example, multiple levels of conditional processing. It's especially well-suited for projects in which process time and labor costs need to be calculated and justified.

Pros

  • Ease of use for both end users and administrators
  • Limitless workflow development to automate processes
  • Flexibility to integrate with other software platforms

  • The web-based Process Composer and BPM Studio IDE is very user friendly (for both tech and business users) and gives you a nice WYSIWYG interface for modeling and building business processes.
  • There are many adapters that provide easy integration with many third-party applications, databases, files, email, social and other integration points.
  • Process Accelerators are available for many commonly used business processes to provide a "jump start" for organizations with a common need - they are releasing new accelerators regularly.
  • Many of the commonly used basic and advanced work flow and process activities are easily configured through the Composer or Studio and advanced features can be easily developed by users with expertise in XML and Java.

Cons

  • We have a history of quick but unhelpful responses from customer support. Fortunately, we are able to work with our implementation specialist when support tickets require escalation. There is a clear eagerness to assist, but the communication from support lacks depth. You have to be extremely specific with your desired resolution.

  • There is not a very clean or efficient way to upgrade from BPM 10g to BPM 11g since they are built on very different platforms - while this is only an issue if you have made significant investments of time and resources in BPM 10g, but still something that can be improved upon as many organizations want to take advantage of the new features and capabilities of Oracle BPM 11g, but do not want to take on the task of migrating their existing BPM 10g as it is overly complex and time consuming.
  • While the tools are moving ever closer to being "Business User" friendly, they are still more geared towards technical staff - savvy business users that have good understanding of BPMN and basic understanding of XML can proficiently utilize BPM 11g, but for the vast majority of busines users, the tool is still too complicated.

We are invested in the Oracle BPM Suite technology and are very comfortable with direction is has been moving and excited to see the roadmap enhancement items that are planned for the Oracle BPM 12c release in the future. We expect that additional support for BPMN 2.0 events and additional adapters and Process Accelerators will continue to enhance our use of the product.

All are fairly similar in capabilities, but the Oracle BPM Suite has good support for BPMN 2.0, integrates well with open standards and has an excellent design/development platform when compared to the other BPM vendors. The Oracle BPM Suite integrates well with the complimentary Oracle Fusion Middleware products that typically accompany a BPM implementation, making it a part of an overall well integrated solution set. Oracle BPM also has very good monitoring, reporting and analytics support built-in.

Return on Investment

  • Agiloft has streamlined the requisitioning process and eliminated manual effort and repetitive low-value tasks.
  • We now have a single source of truth for our SOC audits.

  • One example of an Oracle BPM implementation that we supported for a Federal Government customer resulted in the automation of a manual paper-based process which took on average 4 days to complete; after implementing SOA and BPM to automate the process the completion time decreased to < 6 hours and avoided duplication or effort that was taking place at each step of the process.
