  • Business flows under the BPMN 2 notation.
  • Real-time Analytics
  • Import flows from Oracle databases
  • Internal documentation
  • The price may be higher than other similar tools
  • Lack of support to import from non-Oracle databases
If you are thinking of using Oracle BPM Suite to import flows from a database other than Oracle, you may not be able to do so. The real time factor is quite useful and gives the tool a competitive advantage over similar tools like Bizagi.

  • Capacity to integrate well into a whole lot of apps and databases
  • The studio is quite helpful to configure the business processes especially if it's a standard flow. The drag and drop, although quite buggy, is good.
  • Extremely complicated to work with. The WYSIWYG is of no help either since it very buggy and poorly designed. If you are a business or functional user, you will have a hard time using the application.

  • Very few skilled developers are available in market who really understand how to implement Oracle BPM suite.
Unless your organization has a big budget and needs to streamline the business processes, you would want to steer clear of Oracle BPM Suite. It's a nightmare to use and implement. Especially for a small company, the disadvantages outweigh the benefits.

  • It's a very complex piece of software and documentation is poor. Examples and explanations appear to be non-existent.
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.

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.

It is used by a part of the organization for business process analysis and improvement.
  • Flexibility in designing process
  • Numerous features
  • User experience design could be improved
  • Debugging errors is a very complex and tedious task
Has it been successfully implemented in similar areas?
