Oracle Policy Automation and Siebel

My co-writers over on the Siebel Hub participated in a recent successful online event with OnTheMove Software, who provide mobilty solutions for Siebel and other CRM systems. They are good friends of the Siebel and OPA Hub Websites, and it was a pleasure to take part in their popular event. You may recall last year’s event.

Although the subject of the day was very much Siebel, The OPA Hub Website was able to deliver a presentation about the ability of Oracle Policy Automation to “fill some gaps” left by Siebel. To be more specific, Siebel 2018 has recently been released and is a fantastic, elastic modern application with a fully Cloud-aware architecture. All the old legacy artefacts (files like the compiled SRF, web templates and so on) have been removed and the proprietary elements of the architecture replaced with more modern, open-source, cloud-friendly elements.

But the development tools are, at the moment, not keeping pace with this move to the Cloud. And as the Cloud is perceived as more accessible, more friendly (more fun!), the users and developers in the Cloud have a hard time keeping up with the need to provide modern platforms for developing, deploying and using the CRM.

That’s where Oracle Policy Automation steps in. With it’s incredibly easy, business-friendly natural language approach to putting business policy online and available to any application, with it’s drag and drop no-code user interface, with it’s built-in BI Publisher, with it’s agnostic approach to data model integration – Oracle Policy Automation is the solution. When I meet Siebel customers shaking their head at their thousands of lines of eScript code, when I see them wondering how to accelerate these aspects of development, make them more accessible and more efficient all at the same time, I just want to shout out “Oracle Policy Automation”.

Unusually for me, this presentation also manages to squeeze in three quotes from William Shakespeare. So if you are interested in how Oracle Policy Automation can help accelerate your Siebel CRM deployments, just watch this video.

Thanks as always to David at OnTheMove for his impeccable organisational skills.
