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.

If the rules are going to be managed by IT people JBoss BRMS is good enough, if you're looking for a tool that will be used only by business analysts, you'll probably like to find for another BRMS

Pros

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.

  • Real-time decision making
  • business experts and developers can collaborate using the same solution
  • The ability to use Git as repository

Cons

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

Red Hat Decision Manager

  • The UI could be better
  • It takes time to understand how it works and how to create rules
  • Better documentation would be appreciated

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

Alternatives Considered

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

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.

  • The learning curve is high so it was not easy to adopt
  • The integration with jBPM is good
