Closed loop support for business analyst and IT collaboration

Oracle is announcing an enhanced version of its business process analysis software that enhances collaboration between process modelers and implementers.

Oracle Business Process Analysis Suite 10.1.3.3 featured "closed loop support" for business analyst and IT collaboration, sharing a common process model format with the Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle said.

The new business process analysis suite features round-trip engineering, said Amlan Debnath, vice president of server technologies at Oracle. "What it lets you do is share the [business process] model with IT," Debnath said.

A developer, for example, could make a change to a business process that would be shared with the business' staff.

Modelling of processes is done in the business process analysis package and executed in the SOA Suite, which has an SOA execution engine that uses BPEL (Business Process Execution Language). Business users can build and change business models in the business process suite while IT staff can view and modify these processes in the SOA package.

Integration between Oracle Business Process Analysis Suite and Oracle SOA Suite includes linking of business process analysis, execution, and monitoring tools.

Oracle's business process suite is the company's version of the IDS Scheer Aria product, said analyst Bruce Silver, principal at BPMS Watch. Oracle addressed the 'round-tripping' problem in which business persons modelled a process and handed it to IT, which then implemented its own idea of what the process should be, Silver said.

Oracle had created an intermediate format based on shared metadata between the modelling tool and the implementation tool, which was the SOA suite, Silver said.

"You solve this round-tripping problem now because the model is not just initial requirements for the implementation, but it's a continuous business view of the business process throughout the business process [implementation] lifecycle," said Silver.

Oracle Business Process Suite is a component of the Oracle Fusion Middleware Platform. The suite starts in price at US$5,000 for five users.
