Watch Out for Oracle BPMS
Commentary  |  11/29/2006
Oracle has one of the most widely used BPEL tools on the market, but so far they haven't shown up in Gartner's business process management suite (BPMS) magic quadrants. That should change soon. Recall that Oracle did an OEM deal in July with IDS Scheer for the ARIS Process Design Platform. At the time I speculated this had more to do with keeping up with SAP, but that's apparently not entirely true.
