Process Automation with Process Cloud Service (PCS) – Part 1 by Daniel Teixeira

Blog: PaaS Community


Earlier in my career I worked extensively with a Business Process Management (BPM) software called Cordys (meanwhile acquired by OpenText). Had a couple of trainings on BEA Aqualogic BPM Suite (now Oracle). Later on, while working for TIBCO I had several trainings and a bit of project experience with their BPM solution.

Most of the BPM concepts are familiar to me, but over the years they became quite rusty So this is a good time to dive a bit more into a component of the Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC). I am talking about the Process Cloud Service (PCS), and this will be a series of posts dedicated to exploring PCS capabilities!

Somehow BPM seems to be out of use nowadays and Process Automation became the trendy designation!

The Concepts

Processes are based on BPM Notation (BPMN) –

“A standard Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) will provide businesses with the capability of understanding their internal business procedures in a graphical notation and will give organizations the ability to communicate these procedures in a standard manner. “

The Use Case

In the upcoming posts I will work out a very simple, yet relatable, use case.

A process to manage an employee vacation request .

Granted, if you are self employed this makes no sense, but if you work for a company with a couple hundred or thousands of employees, then the need to manage this process becomes obvious.

Departments/Teams internal planning may require a process to manage this, and on top of that, they may have some business rules that need to be implemented ( example: an entire team cannot take vacations at the same time). Read the complete article here.
