BPM Suite components + Studio feedback

As you probably know Oracle has several software products and suites. Coming from BEA, I am still learning everything there is available around here. On my product area Oracle BPM Suite, there are five main components: Oracle BPM, BPEL PM, BAM, Rules, and Web Center (restricted license for Process Portals). This is a very rich set of software tools with a wealth of capabilities able to cover the most demanding and intense BPM projects.

Here is short cut to each component of the BPM Suite - always check OBPM Interoperability Matrix before you start a project: 

  1. Oracle BPM - Download
  2. Oracle BPEL PM - Download
  3. Oracle BAM - Download
  4. Oracle Rules (Oracle Business Rules is included in the Application Server and also part of SOA Suite) - Download : Download
  5. Oracle WebCenter - Download

Not too long ago, we completed the launch of OBPM 10gR3, and now the team is heads down working on the next major release. In previous releases I had a chance to focus on SOA related items, easy of use features, usability, and integration with other products. This time around I will be focusing  most of my time on the Studio IDE. More precisely on the move from the Eclipse environment to the Oracle JDeveloper framework. This will be a lot of work and will keep us pretty busy.

If you have any thoughts, requests, specific comments, or feedback please send them my way. (alex dot toussaint at oracle dot com)

Alex,

Regarding Oracle, do you see it as the best product to improve the high speed broad band infrastructure? What is the cost like for using Oracle in such a system? Previously I work in a telecommuniction company and I have seen how some people truly trying hard to kill each other in order not to let others learn such technology........
