Difference between OUM's approach and AIM for


ORACLE UNIFIED METHODOLOGY
Business Flow's (ABF) conference room pilot
(CRP1, CRP2, CRP3) approach;
1. AIM for Business Flows (ABF) utilized iterative conference
room pilots (CRPs) to initially map the client's 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

Difference between OUM's approach and AIM


for Business Flow's (ABF) conference room pilot
(CRP1, CRP2, CRP3) approach;
4. One significant similarity between OUM's Application
Implementation View and ABF is that both methods use the
Conference Room Pilot (CRP) technique to refine and
iteratively converge on a business solution best suited to the
client's requirements. In OUMs Application Implementation
View, Conference Room Pilots are referred to as Functional
Prototypes.
5. It is in name only that JCDM was limited to J2EE. JCDMs

Changing markets, competitive pressures, and evolving Client


needs are placing increasing pressure on IT to deliver greater
flexibility and speed. Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) has
been increasingly adopted by businesses as a means of
delivering on these requirements by overcoming the
complexity of their application and IT environments.
SOA facilitates the development of enterprise applications as
modular business services that can be easily integrated.
OUM provides a Supplemental Guide for SOA. Guidance is
provided at the task level for activities that need to occur
during a custom development or technology-based
engagement when SOA and Integration tools are being
