Oracle BPM Reviews

What is most valuable?The best part about this solution is that the feature set is complete. When you compare this to other engines, it is very complete. The Workspace is a full, rich application where most users can find what they want. It shows them a list of… more»
What needs improvement?The stability of this solution deteriorates when more than one thousand instances are concurrently active. The Oracle database is not an easy product to maintain. I would like to see the next version of this solution be simpler and more… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The price of this solution, or with another like Camunda, does not matter because if the organization is rich enough to use a BPM then money is not the issue.
If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?This solution is not used in our production area because of our licensing, and also because of a change in policy whereby Oracle is pushing its customers to the cloud. We are not interested in moving to the cloud and are now instead… more»
What other advice do I have?My advice for anybody who is considering this system is that if they have a good and knowledgable team to support them then they can depend on Oracle. However, if they want to learn this product, for example by going to Oracle university… more»

How has it helped my organization?We use it as a middleware which encapsulates major services. The benefit from the tool is we can develop it quickly and easily use it for middleware services. We can publish the services so other applications can consume them. This is… more»

What other advice do I have?So far, it is doing well, but then market trends are shifting and digitalization is coming. More likely messaging mechanisms, microservices, and faster development cycles are needed. Faster development operations with development paradigms… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We have not switch yet, but I have been told we have some major transformations coming our way. We are evaluating if we should invest more on the Oracle side or if we can just check the other tools on the market, maybe use some other… more»

What needs improvement?Support for Decision Modelling Notation (DMN). There is a Business Rule Engine available, but this is not DMN-compatible.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?It is necessary to evaluate the requirements regarding platform usage and the main operation area of the platform. A topology blueprint should be created and validated… more»

Process modeling supports the BPMN 2.0 palette of tasks, gateways and events, for business and technical users.
What is most valuable?Oracle BPM is easy to use for both the business and developers. Both personas design process models in a common format, tailored specifically to their skills. Often overlooked in software evaluations, the integration to underlying databases and applications is an essential element on almost every BPM application. Oracle BPM's tool for service and application integration is the best on the market… more»
How has it helped my organization?On a recent project, we were able to seamlessly integrate multiple ERPs into a process. On the same project, we integrated content images and metadata from Oracle's WebCenter Content into the process and its user interfaces. Using BAM, the customer now sees key performance indicators they need to make decisions (e.g., revenue saved through discount achievement for AP invoices).
What needs improvement?Although it is a robust product, its learning curve can be steep without having the proper training and mentoring on the first project. As with most BPM projects interaction with people is a key element. Creating user interfaces the end users see and interact with as work item instances travel through process can be challenging. If ADF is used, most companies struggle due to its complexity, steep… more»

What is most valuable?I can't say something specific that is especially valuable about Oracle BPM. Overall, it is a very good platform.
How has it helped my organization?Our company is based around Oracle processes. It provides a lot of flexibility in its processes.
What needs improvement?We have had some issues with version migration, from one version of processes to another. We would have to call Oracle Services but on a day to day, we didn't have any issues. I would like for the design of the migration process to be more… more»
If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?We did not previously use a different solution. After Oracle BPM I used Camunda. Camunda has a different approach. Oracle is heavier in the sense of requirements but it's better for a complex organization in terms of integration to the… more»
What other advice do I have?I would rate it an eight out of ten. I would give it this rating because it's stable and it's well integrated with the Oracle platform but there is always room for improvement.

What is most valuable?The most valuable features of this solution are the robust workflow engine, service-oriented architecture, and BPM modeling capability.
How has it helped my organization?We rolled out a business process management platform using this solution. This solution has given us a quick time to market, the ability to integrate with the rest of the corporate applications, and the ability to hire talent in low-cost locations.
What needs improvement?The API interfaces could be more robust. Existing APIs in the product need to be fine-tuned, made more robust and flexible for adoption. The product should be made available with all its current capabilities addressing known shortcomings on the cloud. I would like to see current out-of-the-box MIs… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The licensing model is good.
