Q&A Highlights
Question: What are areas for improvements for established BPM software tools and vendors?
Answer: Please find our experiences with popular SOA/ BPMN tools: 1. The learning curve to implement seems to be a big deterrent, as users, developers find it as a Major shift from their current ways of implementing solutions. 2. There is no clear governance process, to guide, which steps/ activities/ tasks can be modeled and what should not be modeled. 3. Once a developer gets stuck with an issue, it becomes very difficult to debug as there is not much development level support. 4. Performance of these products and fine tuning is a MAJOR challenge. 5. Issues related to Memory, Objects in Memory are a real problem. 6. Once a Process Step is completed, and then a user wishes to go back and undo that activity, is a challenge. 7. Oracle SOA Suite gives a Vendor based Form Screen for Human Workflow, but most of the applications, would like to create screens based on their application format and technology. This mapping is very important. 8. Users have a requirement to view the contents of the BPMN Editor/ Rules Editor in their custom application, which is not easy to be done. 9. Change Management/ Version Management: For every change, if we create newer versions and deploy, then it is possible that the number of Instances and versions running on the Server will increase which will cause performance and memory issues with the SOA Server. Hope this helps. Regards Vikram Cirigiri Principal Architect,
