Oracle BPM: Time for Time Out

Jan Kettenis - 9 hours 39 min ago
In this posting I describe how to time out a specific BPM scope with the option to re-initiate the timer.

In case you need to model a time out for a specific scope within a process where you want to be able to modify the time out run-time, then you can model it similar to this:

A parallel flow is used where the top flow covers the main process, and the bottom flow handles the timeout. To make the timeout configurable, the bottom flow uses an Event Gateway with a Message event to interrupt the timer and re-initiate it again. The first of the two flows that reaches the Complex Merge aborts the other one (first come, first served), as configured in the Complex Merge:

Note: If you want re-initiation to happen based on a Signal, than you cannot use that in an Event Gateway. However, as a work-around you can define a separate component in the composite that is subscribed to the Signal event, and then calls the "Reinitiation Requested" Message Start event.

Time Out FlowThe timer is configured using an expression that results in a duration:

Furthermore you need some variable that is initiated in the Start operation as false, e.g. called a "mainProcessTimesOut":


"mainProcessTimeOut" is set to true in the "Set Timed Out" Script activity, and used in the "timed out?" Exclusive Gateway to go to the "End" or "Timed Out" End event.

Reinitiate FlowThe "Reinitiation Requested" Message Catch event exposes a "reinitiateTimer" operation that takes the new expiry duration as input, plus an id to correlate the instance:


As the "Reinitiation Requested" Message Catch is only activated in case re-initialization of the timer is requested, the condition of the no-flow from "reinitiate?" can simply be set to false, and the yes-flow as the default. 

How to create a Sankey Diagram

Nilesh Jethwa - 9 hours 41 min ago
What is a sankey diagram?

Sankey Diagram is kind of a flow chart that has multi-purpose use. It can be applied in lot of different domains. Even though they are popular to visualize manufacturing flow or energy flow diagrams, there are other domains like HR, Finance, Web analytics etc where you can find the benefit of using Sankey visualization. As part of data visualization best practices, it is highly recommended to incorporate Sankey Visualizations as your new pie chart replacement.

Build Sankey Diagram using InfoCaptor
In this tutorial, we shall learn about creation of Sankey diagrams using InfoCaptor. Using the tools you can visualize the flow from one node to another. It is a part of the visualization library, hence user does not to have to work on the complicated scripting. [NOTE: InfoCaptor is more than a sankey diagram creator, it contains other visualizations from d3.js charts]

Oracle Hotel 2025 and Oracle Restaurant 2025 Reports Audit Consumer Attitudes on Emerging Technologies and Their Impact on Future Hospitality Experiences Oracle Hospitality Research Identifies the Future of IoT, Virtual Reality and Wearables in the Guest Experience

Oracle Industry Connect, Orlando, FL.—Mar 22, 2017

Today Oracle announced the findings of two research initiatives aimed at identifying consumer attitudes to new technologies and how their implementation will shape consumer behavior in the years to come. Insights from both the Oracle Hotel 2025 and Oracle Restaurant 2025 highlight that consumers are most willing to engage brands with new technology if they feel that they are in control of their experience and that hospitality operators should be wary of implementing automation without personal service.

“Given the heritage of service throughout the Hospitality industry, we’re not surprised that guests want a continued human connection with their food and beverage and hotel brands of choice, despite the emergence of new technologies,” said Mike Webster, senior vice president and general manager Oracle Hospitality. “Our hotel and restaurant management platforms OPERA and Simphony will continue to be enabling investments given their ability to provide a singular view of how guests engage and interact.”

The Hotel 2025 and Restaurant 2025 reports audited 250 restaurant operators, 150 hotel operators and 702 consumers in February 2017 on their reactions to technology’s role in the guest experience over the next 8 years.

Recognition and Personalization Will be a Driver for Future Technologies
  • 33 percent of restaurant and 72 percent of hotel operators say that guest recognition via facial biometrics will be in use within the next five years.
  • 31 percent of restaurant guests and 41 percent of hotel guests will be more likely to visit an establishment with greater frequency if they are recognized by a server or associate without having to give their name or show a loyalty card.
  • Both restaurant (49 percent) and hotel (62 percent) guests agree that having this recognition would improve their experience.
  • 28 percent of restaurant customers would visit more often and 45 percent said it would improve their experience if service was faster because they were recognized.
  • 42 percent of restaurant guests find suggestions based on health invasive and 68 percent find suggestions based on digital footprint invasive.
  • 47% of hotel guests agree that using artificial intelligence to suggest items based on past purchases would improve their experience.  72% of hotel operators agree that AI-based systems that leverage guest preferences and buying history to make targeted dining recommendations will be mainstream by 2025.
Consumers are Warming to Voice-Activated Experiences
  • 36 percent of restaurant guests say ordering through a virtual assistant would improve experience and 17 percent would visit more often, along with 50 percent and 33 percent of hotel guests respectively.
  • 59 percent of hotel guests believe controlling their room via a voice-activated device would enhance the guest experience and operators agree. Hotel operators polled indicated that managing room control and ambiance management (78 percent) via voice activation would be widespread by 2025. Hotel operators also believed that ordering room or hotel services (70 percent) via voice activation would be adopted by 2025.
  • Operators are keen on gathering customer feedback by voice; 61 percent of restaurant operators and 68 percent of hotels said this will be in use in the next 5 years.
Virtual Reality will Enhance the Booking and on-Property Experience in Hotels
  • Consumers also indicated that virtual reality tours of hotel properties (66 percent) and virtual reality lounges for entertainment (44 percent) would improve the guest experience.
  • Hotel operators also believe virtual reality technology will be widespread by 2025 with a variety of use cases: staff training (68 percent), guest entertainment on property (64 percent), and previewing meeting rooms (63 percent).
Robots Won’t be Replacing Hospitality Staff Anytime Soon
  • 50 percent of restaurant guests said being served by a robot would not improve the guest experience and 40 percent would visit less.
  • 37 percent of hotel guests said being served by a robot would not improve the guest experience and 22 percent would visit less.
  • 64 percent of restaurant and 58 percent of hotel operators say that the use of robots for cleaning is appealing.
Operators Begin To Consider Investment in Wearable Technology
  • 51 percent of restaurants and 63 percent of hotels say staff activity monitoring via wearable device will be in use in the next 5 years.
  • 59 percent of restaurants and 78 percent of hotels say that staff checking into work and onto workstations via wearable device will be in use in the next 5 years.

Oracle Retail 2025 Study Reveals Consumer Attitudes on Disruptive Technologies and Their Impact on Future Retail Experiences

Oracle Press Releases - 14 hours 18 min ago
Press Release
Oracle Retail 2025 Study Reveals Consumer Attitudes on Disruptive Technologies and Their Impact on Future Retail Experiences Research Highlights Differing Sentiments on the Role of Automation, Drones, IoT, 3D Printing, Virtual Reality and Wearables in Customer Experience

Oracle Industry Connect, Orlando, FL.—Mar 22, 2017

Today Oracle announced the findings of new research that examines consumer attitudes to new technologies and how their implementation will shape consumer behavior in the years to come. Insights from the Oracle Retail 2025 study highlight that consumers are most willing to engage brands with new technology if they feel that they are in control of their experience.

“Consumers clearly indicated that they have a conservative appetite for retail techologies that requires deep personal data and make decisions on their behalf,” said Mike Webster, senior vice president and general manager at Oracle Retail and Oracle Hospitality. “This signals brands to focus on building a strong foundation to win trust. Warm attitudes toward utilizing virtual reality and receiving recommendations for custom-made accessories produced with 3D printing points to consumers’ willingness to adopt new technologies if they are in control of their experience.”

The Retail 2025 Report results provide a benchmark for where consumers are on the retail technology adoption lifecycle and the impact on retail in the next eight years. The Retail 2025 Report polled 709 consumers in February 2017.

Smart Gets Smarter

AI, VR and IoT present the opportunity to better anticipate consumers’ next purchase. However, establishing a strong foundation of trust is critical to success when rolling out new experiences to consumers. If brands over step the reaction can be visceral.

  • 64 percent of respondents liked the option of using virtual reality to navigate a personalized in-store experience and having a hand-picked wardrobe to try on in-store
  • 58 percent of consumers indicated a positive attitude toward the idea of having their grocer suggest a shopping list for their approval based on purchase history, social and environmental data
  • 54 percent of respondents indicated that having a grocer automatically charge and ship items based on purchase history, social and environmental data was invasive
Fast Gets Fierce

Velocity in fashion is critical and it will only get faster. 3D printing and drone deliver will accelerate the product design to consumer process from months, to days and eventually hours.

  • 67 percent of consumers like the option of near real-time delivery to their doorstep by drones
  • 64 percent of consumers responded favorably to the concept having a retailer suggest a custom-made accessory for them produced with 3D printing
  • 57 percent of consumers find apparel recommendations from robots based on their social media profile invasive
Personalization Gets Perfected

Consumers are wary about volunteering data necessary for personalization but still look for a tailored experience, reinforcing the need for stronger brand relationships. On the flipside; there is a clear difference in consumer expectation for retailers to make data available and customize information about components, origin and recalls to their specific buying patterns.

  • 54 percent of respondents viewed the concept of linking their wearable activity tracker to their pharmacy so they can suggest products to meet specific health and wellness needs as favorable
  • 78 percent favor the option of having detailed information about product components (e.g., cotton, spandex, etc) and their origin prior to purchase
  • 46 percent of respondents indicated that receiving real-time alerts on current product recalls, and time since last recall by a manufacturer, based on previous purchase history would improve their experience

Oracle Utilities Launches Smart Grid and IoT Device Management Solution in the Cloud

Oracle Press Releases - 14 hours 26 min ago
Press Release
Oracle Utilities Launches Smart Grid and IoT Device Management Solution in the Cloud Oracle Utilities Operational Device Cloud Service is the Foundation for Next Generation Smart Grid and IoT Device Management

Oracle Industry Connect—Orlando, Fla.—Mar 22, 2017

Oracle today introduced Oracle Utilities Operational Device Cloud Service (ODCS), a new cloud offering that enables utilities to further automate the management of their grid assets and devices, at a total lower cost of ownership.

The utilities industry is going through tremendous transformation as a result of IoT and increasing distributed energy resources. The United States alone has more than 70 million smart meters installed [footnote] and utilities are increasingly deploying smart field sensors. As each smart device has its own unique requirements for maintenance, inspection, firmware upgrades and security, utilities are struggling to manage the lifecycle of these assets in a single, centralized way. In response to these challenges, Oracle has unveiled a cloud-based version of its Operational Device Management Solution that provides a scalable and future-proof way to manage IoT device operations.

Available as a new stand-alone cloud service, ODSC automates the management of smart grid and IoT devices. When combined with Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management solution, it delivers a unified solution in the cloud to extend asset performance management to smart devices at a massive scale. This complete visibility of smart assets delivers detailed insights into each device’s location, characteristics, health, and firmware upgrade status. In addition, utilities can extend ODCS for customer—owned asset registration processes such as smart thermostats and solar PVs. Additionally, by leveraging the cloud, utilities can reduce their total cost of ownership.

“We’re in front of the dramatic shifts the utilities industry is experiencing, providing new technologies that meet the needs of our customers as they navigate this changing landscape,” said Rodger Smith, general manager and senior vice president for Oracle Utilities. “We’re committed to innovation, and to providing cloud solutions that make operational excellence a reality for electric, gas and water utilities worldwide.”

The solution can be added to Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Cloud Service and Oracle Utilities Meter Data Analytics Cloud Service or used as a stand-alone solution depending on a utility’s requirements.

New Features in Oracle Utilities Operational Device Management Cloud Service:
  • Proactively adjust, update, and repair smart grid and IoT devices as needed
  • Enable significant cost savings by eliminating labor costs due to physical data collection with automated processes
  • Reduce total cost of ownership by using the most up to date IT infrastructure in the cloud and alleviating the need to continually maintain older systems
  • Find risks of device failures faster with increased visibility into the age and reliability of each device
  • Prepare for asset registration capabilities of customer-owned assets

Oracle Utilities Launches a New Asset Performance Management (APM) Solution in the Cloud

Oracle Press Releases - 14 hours 26 min ago
Press Release
Oracle Utilities Launches a New Asset Performance Management (APM) Solution in the Cloud Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Cloud Service is the foundation that supports next generation APM

Oracle Industry Connect—Orlando, Fla.—Mar 22, 2017

Oracle today introduced Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Cloud Service, an innovation foundation for asset performance management. The new cloud offering enables utilities to make the necessary transition from reactive to proactive asset management strategies. Utilities can increase asset reliability by finding asset failures faster and performing predictive maintenance with integrated APM and analytics.

Asset reliability and performance is core to well-functioning electric, gas, and water utilities. An aging workforce, pressure from regulators, and scrutiny on cost reduction goals are driving the need to extend the life of existing assets. Distributed energy resources (DER) are adding layers of complexity that underpin a utility’s asset reliability. Market research indicates that enterprise asset management supported by analytics and performance monitoring is one of the top investment priorities for utilities today (see footnote).   Asset operations decision-makers are looking at advanced analytics to improve asset reliability and monitor their performance.

In response to these challenges, Oracle Utilities is taking a comprehensive approach to APM. Historically, work order management, reliability-centric maintenance, asset tracking, advanced analytics, mobile scheduling, and operational reporting have been siloed applications. Today marks an important step towards integrating these capabilities.

“Predictive analytics are changing the game for utility asset maintenance. Extending the life of utility assets can avoid expensive capital projects and lower maintenance costs,” said Kevin Prouty, Vice President, IDC Energy Insights. “With the explosion of IoT devices and data around the corner, scalability of these systems will require IT infrastructure that can react and scale quickly. This makes utility asset maintenance applications even more prime for deployment in the cloud.”

Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management Cloud Service improves asset operations ability to predict risk of failures faster with out-of the-box APM analytics. The cloud deployment delivers immediate value by reducing total cost of ownership. With integrated analytics, utilities can operationalize insights by optimizing work and maintenance schedules in real time. Unlike stand-alone analytic solutions, integration of these analytics into established work order management systems is an accelerant to optimizing performance of assets.

“When you combine deregulation, changing legislation and market uncertainty stemming from increasing distributed energy resources, it’s no surprise that utilities are looking for more ways to improve operations and cut costs,” said Rodger Smith, general manager and senior vice president, Oracle Utilities. “Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management Cloud Service provides more detailed analytics and deep insights into asset age, health and performance. The cloud infrastructure also gives utilities the flexibility to scale up quickly as new assets are added to the infrastructure from rising IoT and distributed energy resources that are adding more sensors on the network.”

New Features and Benefits Include:
  • Prevent risk of asset failures faster with out-of-the-box analytics to support repair-versus-replace decisions
  • Detect patterns of asset failure with predefined dashboards and charts to improve investment and capital planning
  • Reduce total cost of ownership by using the most up to date IT infrastructure in the cloud and alleviating needs to constantly maintain older systems
  • Optimize asset reliability programs including ISO 55000 to increase overall value of asset operations more quickly

Differences between charting engine, analytics software and dashboard software

Nilesh Jethwa - Tue, 2017-03-21 13:25

Every often we would get users asking us 'How different is your dashboard software from XYZ Business Analytics?'

The XYZ spans across the entire Business Intelligence umbrella and often into the Website development and applicaton side as well.

Some of the questions are like

'How different is infocaptor dashboards from Tableau?"

'How is it infocaptor unique from Qlikview'

'How is it different from Oracle BI or SAP BI', the list goes on. But these are the questions we are prepared for and have very good value propositions. We do have a general understanding for most of the top business intelligence tools so we are perfectly comfortable with such questions.

The tougher questions are when the users want to understand how different are we from different charting software like d3js, Highcharts etc.

To understand the difference let us understand the basics…
