Article Survey : The OPA Hub Website

OPA Hub Logo for Article Survey 2018Here at the OPA Hub Website, we want to provide articles that are of benefit to our readers. As such we would like to better understand what articles are of most interest. Although we have data from analytics providers like Google Analytics and Facebook to name only two, it is always in our opinion simpler and more effective to ask questions directly to our audience. So this is the justification for asking you to spend just a few moments filling out our Article Survey.

If there are items that are not visible in the list proposed, we would encourage you to add comments at the bottom of the Article Survey using the Comment feature, as normal.

Coming Up : New Content

Whilst on the subject of what you would like to see in the future we can already reveal what is coming up in the next quarter, aside from the usual content:

  1. A report from any Oracle Policy Automation sessions in Oracle OpenWorld 2018
  2. A series about the mysterious RuleScript
  3. A look at another Example Project : the Travel Compensation Project and how it works
  4. Getting Started with Oracle Policy Automation Book Edition 4 : in the works already

Coming Up : Training Available

We will be looking to run another session of our Workshop in the final quarter of the year. So while you are doing the Article Survey, feel free to comment / add information about a location or team that needs a training event (anywhere in the World). The standard content is shown here.

Article Survey : Q4 2018

So without further ado, here is the survey. Thank you very much for taking the time to participate in the survey. All the results will simply be used to better orient our writing and creative energy, and we will not contact you unless you specifically request it in the comments.

The OPA Hub Snap Poll Results

The OPA Hub Snap Poll Results

As you know, the OPA Hub Website runs short-term polls or “Snap Polls” in an effort to collect and share information about Oracle Policy Automation that may hopefully be of value to the Community. The OPA Hub Snap Poll Results concern the question we asked in March 2018, specifically “Are you going to be using the new JavaScript Extension in your OPA Interviews?”.

The most recent versions of Oracle Policy Automation have pretty much consolidated JavaScript as the client-side platform for delivering just about any visual changes you might wish for. Many of us are also pretty hopeful that the JavaScript library in interviews.js is a forerunner of a future REST client, and hopefully the basis for some sophisticated integrations as well.

Of course there are other avenues of development of Oracle Policy Automation, notably the experimental RuleScript, based on the output of the Oracle Labs and the graal library. Anyway, The OPA Hub Snap Poll Results were quite definitely in favour of the JavaScript extensions. You can find the results below, and I have included a link to a dynamic version of the graphic hosted by our friends at easel.ly.

 New OPA Snap Poll

As the Snap Poll on the subject of JavaScript has now closed, a new Snap Poll has been opened, this time in an effort to get more information about the needs of the Community in respect of training and advanced workshops. Please take a moment to answer the OPA Hub Snap Poll on this subject.

You’ve got to be in it, to win it

A reminder : when we close this Snap Poll, one lucky voter will get a free copy of Getting Started with Oracle Policy Automation 2018 Edition, so don’t hesitate to vote today. The Snap Poll will close on the 31st April 2018, and results will be published on this website soon afterwards.

 

Snap Poll : Training – 1 Question, 30 Seconds and a Chance to Win

Snap Poll : Training – 1 Question, 30 Seconds and a Chance to Win

As you all know, the OPA Hub Website tries to provide content and services that meet the needs of all of us who are working with Oracle Policy Automation, and probably Oracle Service Cloud or Oracle Siebel CRM on a day-to-day basis. One of the areas we have been looking at with our partners and content providers is the subject of training. We have a number of different training projects in the pipeline. But read on to find out about our Snap Poll : Training – 1 Question, 30 Seconds and a Chance to Win…

Some of the training we already provide has met with good feedback and seems to fill a gap left by the official training provider. However, we are always eager to find out more. That is why this post contains a snap poll : it is so easy to answer the question it will take you all of 30 seconds. You can register your vote using either an anonymous vote or if you use your OPA Hub Website login you will automatically be entered into a draw to receive a free copy of the Getting Started with Oracle Policy Automation 2018 Edition.

Snap Poll : Training - 1 Question, 30 Seconds and a Chance to Win

This book is so new it is not even in the shops yet, I have just received the first copy from the printers so it is fresh as fresh can be. The book can therefore be yours just for entering our Snap Poll : Training – 1 Question, 30 Seconds and a Chance to Win!

Thank you to everyone who takes part in the spirit of sharing your opinion. The data will be reviewed on the OPA Hub and will be completely anonymised. The name of the voters will only be used to ascertain the winner of the free copy of the book!

What kind of advanced OPA training would you be interested in attending?

OPA Mobile App and SDK – Snap Poll

OPA Mobile App and SDK – Snap Poll

Please vote in our Snap Poll

We are running a new Snap Poll on this website to discover a little bit more about the usage of the OPA Mobile App in the wild. The Mobile App, available for Android and iOS devices allows the user to use Policy Models that have been selected for Mobile Deployment on the Oracle Policy Automation Hub application, and can be targeted easily at a subset of users by means of a Role addition.

The Mobile App provides a device-optimized user interface and features such as easy pause and resume. The Oracle Policy Automation (OPA) Mobile SDK provides a cross-platform solution for developers to build disconnected interactive experiences for mobile devices. The SDK is provided within a Mobile Application Archive (MAA) for use with the Oracle Mobile Application Framework (MAF) in JDeveloper.

The MAA gives developers an API for displaying interviews, downloading policy models from Policy Automation Hub and various other services that are useful for building custom mobile advice applications around OPA policy models. Using the session data XML format, data can be loaded into a mobile interview before it is displayed, and retrieved during and after the interview. Obviously the API represents a different and more complex project but does have the capability to be configured specifically to meet  customer requirements.

OPA Hub Snap Poll – Current Results

OPA Hub Snap Poll – Current Results

As our first Snap Poll is generating some interesting results, I thought I would post a “situation so far” chart. It is fascinating to see the strength of Siebel CRM in this picture, but also the number of “stand alone” Oracle Policy Automation deployments. Hopefully in the next few weeks we will see some further patterns developing, but that depends on people getting out and voting!

As some of you may know, there are a number of Siebel CRM Roadshows planned for Australia in the coming weeks, and they all contain a significant portion of Oracle Policy Automation related content. If you are able to attend please register using the Event Calendar:

  • Siebel CRM Roadshow (with OPA Strategy Update) Canberra
  • Siebel CRM Roadshow (with OPA Strategy Update) Sydney
  • Siebel CRM Roadshow (with OPA Strategy Update) Melbourne

All of these are a great opportunity to see how Oracle Policy Automation fits into the Oracle Cloud and Oracle Public Sector strategy. As I am currently training new starters who will be working on a project involving Oracle Policy Automation, Siebel and much more, I can see anecdotally that this is a strategy that is bearing fruit.

OPA Hub Snap Poll Results So Far
