If your primary topic is SOA, make your home page! to Focus on APIs

As businesses turn digital and ecosystems become increasingly open, the nature of integration is changing. SOA helped us connect IT transactions and systems within a controlled environment. APIs will help us turn legacy into advantage, exposing assets to be consumed by innovators outside your own team. The transformative power of APIs will last twice as long and have many times the impact of the web. Whether you goal is to drive innovation, become a mobile business, or navigate a hybrid cloud, APIs are part and parcel of your strategy.

In principle, the acronym API stands for Application Programming Interfaces, but the notion of what API means has evolved significantly. APIs today are quite different from the application programming interfaces of old, and the transition from SOA to API centric systems is a very natural one. Enterprises that embark on this journey will continue to leverage the engineering practices embraced by SOA, but will extend their ecosystem in new ways through APIs. Experiencing the power of APIs involves much more than simply data monetization. The power of APIs can be successfully applied to business challenges ranging from changing business models to embracing a world of devices and sensors.

11 Habits for Highly Successful BPM Programs

The culture of an organization is a collection of habits, and habits have a powerful effect in business performance. Driving long-term business benefit and success with Business Process Management (BPM) often times requires companies to develop new and maintain existing habits.

A First Look at Oracle BPM Suite 11G

As the BPM market has matured, it’s time to declare the era of specialized “fit-for-purpose” BPM Suites officially over. Not long ago buyers had to choose between one set of offerings for human-centric processes and a different set for integration-centric processes. Some offerings focused on business empowerment and others appealed to developers. Some BPMSs were firmly layered on SOA while others ignored SOA completely. Those days are gone. BPM buyers today don’t want to proliferate more BPMS islands across the enterprise. They want it all – BPM without boundaries – a single BPMS platform good for both human-centric and integration-centric processes, offering both business empowerment and rich developer tools, model-driven but on a powerful SOA foundation. And they want it to be based on open standards. Such things are expected in mainstream technology.A key enabler of these elevated buyer expectations is BPMN 2.0, the new process definition language standard from OMG.

Adding the Time Dimension to BPM

BPM solutions have traditionally focused on improving business processes. The ability to predict how future activities in a process will be impacted by changes introduced in earlier stages is a dimension that BPM products have not addressed – until now. Adding the element of “time” to processes enables users to derive even greater value and control.
