In this course participants learn how to use Oracle Business Process Analysis (BPA) Suite, which provides comprehensive modeling, analysis, and simulation capabilities for enterprise-wide business processes. Oracle BPA supports enterprise architecture, process improvement, and change management and provides for alignment of Business Process Management (BPM) and SOA initiatives. BPA suite is innovatively integrated with Oracle SOA Suite to provide closed-loop BPM capability.

This enables business analysts and developers to closely collaborate throughout the entire BPM life cycle using the best tools for their specific needs. Oracle BPA Suite includes Oracle Business Process Architect, Oracle Business Process Publisher, and Oracle Business Process Repository components for business process modeling, collaboration, and storage respectively. BPA Suite provides a rich and intuitive graphical modeling environment tailored to business users for defining process maps and detailed process flows consisting of both human, automated and business rule steps that spans across organizational boundaries.

In addition to business process modeling, BPA Suite has capability to analyze processes by running simulations based on different scenarios. Simulations can be used to do timing, cost analysis and to find process and resource bottlenecks.
