Accelerate your learning path to Oracle BPM Suite 11g with this easy-to-use and comprehensive hands-on tutorial.

Business Process Management is broadly recognized as a top business priority. While BPM is more than technology, effective process management requires a good BPM suite of tools and technologies. The market for such BPM Suites has been historically very fragmented. This market is in the process of being transformed, driven by two forces: standardization, primarily in the form of BPMN 2.0, and consolidation. Oracle BPM Suite 11gR1 is a harbinger of this transformation. With its native support for BPMN 2.0 and a unified and comprehensive set of capabilities, it is poised to accelerate the change.

This book provides an excellent exposure to Oracle BPM 11gR1 and walks you through the development of a business process application based on a real-life scenario. The solution is built in an iterative fashion, with each chapter introducing a new feature until you have learned them all. This fully illustrated step-by-step tutorial is based on proven training content that has been highly praised by hundreds of business process professionals in product training courses given as part of the BPM Suite 11g rollout. While this book is specific to Oracle BPM Suite, some material being based on standards such as BPMN 2.0 are generally applicable.

  • Offers an accelerated learning path for the much-anticipated Oracle BPM Suite 11g release
  • Set the stage for your BPM learning experience with a discussion into the evolution of BPM, and a comprehensive overview of the Oracle BPM Suite 11g Product Architecture
  • Discover BPMN 2.0 modeling, simulation, and implementation
