It simply works great for our applications and requirements!

Oracle BPM Suite

Oracle BPM is well suited to organizations and environments that have a good understanding of their business processes and organizational structures. Trying to introduce a tool such as Oracle BPM into the organization without a good grasp on how the business operates is a recipe for disaster as the implementation will uncover all of the dirty secrets of an organizations business processes and bring them to light. BPM is not to be utilized for smaller service orchestrations or technical service implementations, these should be handled by the Oracle SOA Suite using the BPEL process manager, leaving BPM to handle the organizational business processes, referring to and including lower level services and BPEL processes as needed.

Pros

Process Director

  • BP Logix Process Director has an extremely easy to use graphical workflow designer.
  • Good support for electronic signatures and physical signatures using hardware signature pads.
  • Knowledge views and dashboards for easy access to data.

Oracle BPM Suite

  • Modeling business processes - it is providing an interface where users can drag and drop many kinds of shapes to build a business process.
  • HumanTask - I consider this as being the key strength of Oracle BPM. It allows you to create approval flows in different ways and it manages the long-running processes (while waiting for people to interact with the flow).
  • The user-interface for user tasks - it is one place where you can see all tasks and their progress. Admins can see and interact with other people's tasks.

Cons

Process Director

  • Having a record of sent emails in a process would be helpful.
  • A "scrubber" for PDF names would be helpful. Acrobat does not like to open items with particular characters in a file name.

Oracle BPM Suite

  • Again, it takes a decent amount of IT knowledge to realize the full potential of the Oracle BPM Suite
  • It can tend to feel sluggish unless you slightly exceed the minimum system requirements
  • There are so many features that it can be difficult to know which ones to use and which ones not to use in a given situation

In many scenarios it should have provided more features. It took a lot of effort while debugging, making it difficult to maintain.

Alternatives Considered

Process Director

We evaluated 13 vendors when looking for a solution for our finance department. We invited 4 vendors to demo and picked BP Logix in late 2011. Integration was very quick and since we went live January 2012 we deployed three additional processes incorporating our finance, facilities, legal, IT and our operations departments.

Oracle BPM Suite

IBM's Rational RequistePro was considered as an alternative but due to the client's good experience with existing Oracle services, BPM Suite was finally decided upon.

Return on Investment

Process Director

  • Process Director has had such a positive impact on our entire organization. Nearly every division and department throughout the whole organization either has working forms and workflows or has requested to have forms and workflows developed.
  • The only negative or adverse condition is that we don't have enough development time for all the workflows requested to be developed.

Oracle BPM Suite

  • Documenting a flow to a client allows communicating the intention of a development and thereby minimizing changes that could delay the calendar.
  • Simulating macro processes allows you to visualize at an early stage the figures of a project in order to better manage resources.
