What You Will Learn

  • Examine patterns of flow control, branching, synchronization, multi-instance, structured loop, cancellation and completion, milestone, iteration and termination
  • Blend workflow patterns with human interactions and task modeling using Oracle BPM human workflow
  • Use correlation patterns and discover exception handling strategies in Oracle BPM and the patterns around it
  • Learn patterns of invocation, and witness interaction and integration
  • Use adaptive case management to handle unpredictable, unstructured, ad hoc flows
  • Get to grips with milestone patterns, case interaction, holistic view, and event-based features
  • Use Process Asset Management (PAM) to uncover process and business architecture asset sharing for Business-IT collaboration
  • Learn strategic patterns of alignment and develop models for strategy, Enterprise, and value chain and align them together
  • Explore predictive analysis and KPIs

In Detail

This book gives you an exemplary and comprehensive exposure to Oracle BPM modeling and implementation patterns. During the journey, it will walk you through various BPM patterns based on real-life examples. It offers projects to download with each chapter, which allows you to design, model, and analyze the patterns discussed in each chapter, providing you with an interactive way to learn and implement BPM patterns.

With this title in hand, you will gain practical experience in using Oracle BPM effectively, while using the most useful modeling patterns for your implementations. The book also covers topics that demonstrate different BPM patterns including flow control and advance patterns, invocation and interaction patterns, correlation and integration patterns, human interaction, collaboration patterns, and case management patterns. The book also provides an insight on patterns for strategic alignment, business-IT collaboration, sharing of processes and architecture assets, and infusing business context.
