  • 8. Comparison of OUM with current Application methods etcAMIS.In comparing OUM to current application methods, it is helpful to consider boththe similarities and differences between OUM and methods,Similarities. Emphasis will be on Business Process implementation. Fit-Gap – Future business processes will be mapped to standard applicationfunctionality to identify gaps. Key business architecture structures will be defined (Chart of Accounts, Multi-Org, and Trading Community Arch.). Application Setups will be defined (i.e. Configuration options) Best practices from current methods will be included Will support both implementation approaches: Requirements-driven (like AIM Foundation, Compass Standard) Solution-driven (like AIM for Business Flows, Compass Accelerated) 11/26/2011 By Faisa Kapadia 8
  • 9. Differences. • OUM is based on the Unified Process • Standards-based • Iterative and incremental • Architecture-centric - increased emphasis on architecture • Business process and use case-driven • OUM is more comprehensive in scope • From enterprise level IT strategy to implementation • Though only those aspects necessary to accomplish the project’s businessobjectives need be considered • OUM supports tighter integration with other disciplines • Business Intelligence • Fusion Middleware • Custom Software • Other product and technology areas11/26/2011 By Faisa Kapadia 9
  • 10. Benefits of using OUM as a Method.The primary benefits of using OUM are: • More Focused Effort - OUM enables projects to clearly define businessscope and needs to create enterprise business process models. • Built-in Flexibility - By combining activities and tasks in different ways, OUMcan be applied to many types of information technology software developmentand implementation projects. • Saves Time - Seasoned information technology practitioners representingyears of experience have contributed their knowledge to OUM. • Higher Quality - OUM subscribes to an iterative approach that incorporatestesting and validation throughout the lifecycle. • More Cost Effective - OUM facilitates improved control of project expensesby using a flexible work breakdown structure that allows you to perform onlynecessary tasks. • Reduced Project Risk - Implementing an iterative, broadly applicablemethod mitigates requirements mismatch. A key focus of each iteration in OUMis to identify and reduce the most significant project risks.11/26/2011 By Faisa Kapadia 10

  • 17. Application Supports to OUM.The approach to integrate applications support follows: • Complete backbone Work Breakdown Structure is stable. • Product-suite agnostic coverage for all of the Oracle-branded ApplicationSuites (e.g., E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft Enterprise, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, Siebel, etc.) • Add Application Upgrade and Migration View • Support additional application suites (E, E1, Siebel, Retail, etc.) • Further develop and refine the material and estimating model • Layer in support for Fusion Applications • Estimating Models planned for 1-3 months after method releases.The release of an OUM version supporting a given product family will mark thebeginning of the transition period. Ample time will be allotted for the transitioncycle before any of the current methods are de supported. 11/26/2011 By Faisa Kapadia 17
  • 18. Difference between OUMs approach and AIM for Business Flows (ABF) conference room pilot (CRP1, CRP2, CRP3) approach;1. AIM for Business Flows (ABF) utilized iterative conference room pilots (CRPs) to initially map the clients business to the standard Oracle Business Flows and to refine/tailor the business solution to the specific requirements of the project.2. However, most of the other elements of the ABF approach were more waterfall than interative. OUM is a true iterative approach. Virtually any and all activities and tasks are performed in an iterative fashion based on an iteration plan developed by the project manager.3. While any OUM task or activity can be iterated as necessary to meet project objectives, keep in mind is that you should do only what is necessary to meet the project objectives - nothing more. Make the method serve you - not the other way around. 11/26/2011 By Faisa Kapadia 18
  • 19. Difference between OUMs approach and AIM for BusinessFlows (ABF) conference room pilot (CRP1, CRP2, CRP3)approach;4. One significant similarity between OUMs Application Implementation View andABF is that both methods use the Conference Room Pilot (CRP) technique torefine and iteratively converge on a business solution best suited to the clientsrequirements. In OUM’s Application Implementation View, Conference RoomPilots are referred to as Functional Prototypes.5. It is in name only that JCDM was limited to J2EE. JCDM’s framers designedthe method to be technology agnostic. JCDM, and therefore OUM, provides abroadly applicable, yet cohesive collection of activities, tasks, artifacts, roles andresponsibilities, and guidelines for technology-based business solutions. In thetransition from JCDM, OUM immediately became the single method for technicalarchitecture, technology implementation, and custom software development atOracle.11/26/2011 By Faisa Kapadia 19
