Description

IBM BPM V8.5.7

IBM BPM V8.5.7 delivers:

  • Compelling business user experience

    Liberate knowledge workers and enable field staff to participate in business processes by allowing them to perform their work outside the office by using their mobile devices. Improvements to the business user experience is provided by new Process Portal capabilities and enhanced UI tooling to help enable developers to rapidly create compelling business UIs without requiring deep, technical skills.

  • Mobile enablement

    The Process Portal and stock controls are now fully responsive. Business users can use the new responsive portal with existing business processes from either their desktops or mobile devices with appropriate network access. Process developers can transform existing coaches into responsive UIs automatically within process designer and can create UIs for mobile devices with improved UI tooling.

  • Enhanced UI tooling

    The CSHS editor is enhanced to simplify the development of user interfaces for both desktop and mobile plus many other improvements, such as the ability to create nested client-side human services. Process developers can create compelling user interfaces by simply using the new Grid Layout and Theme Editor.

    The Grid Layout can be used to define the layout of a coach or coach view without needing horizontal and vertical sections. It is based on a 12-column grid so that it is quick and easy to define a layout where content is perfectly aligned to create a modern user interface. The WYSIWYG editor enables the UI developer to visualize the layout and add content without having to execute the UI to see the end result.

    The new theming capability allows the UI designer to define the corporate look and feel in one place by using a simple Graphical Theme Editor. A theme can be applied to one or more process applications dynamically without having to edit individual coaches, redeploy the process application or migrate process instances. It is possible to create multiple themes with multiple versions, so different themes can be applied to each process application independently.

  • Process federation

    The Process Portal can now be used with either a single process server or in a federated topology. Federation enables business users to access and execute all their processes, cases, activities, and dashboards from a single user interface without needing to be aware of either the task implementation or origin. Federation allows IT personnel to manage the infrastructure without impacting the business user experience. Federated tasks can originate from multiple process servers that may include different versions of IBM BPM to support isolation and migration scenarios.

    Processes may be isolated for a variety of reasons that include managing platform stability, process scaleability, and separate departmental deployments. When transitioning to a new version of IBM BPM, federation enables customers to roll out processes on the latest version while they migrate existing processes. Clients may decide to leave some processes running on the older platform indefinitely or remove them once there are no more instances, thus avoiding migration altogether. The unified task list combines human activities from both BPMN and BPEL processes to enable clients with WebSphere Process Server solutions to transition to BPMN while utilizing their existing investments.

  • Improved portal experience

    The process portal is now responsive so that the UI adapts, according to the available screen size of the user's chosen device. Business users can complete their tasks virtually anywhere, at any time, by using their mobile phone or tablet.

    The portal is now completely coach-based, so it is much easier for developers to make modifications or use it as a baseline to create a custom portal to satisfy the demands of the business. Configuration options are added to enable the portal behavior to be adapted without having to customize the portal. Dashboards can still be used to extend portal behavior.

    New, saved search capabilities are now available for individuals and team leaders to organize tasks for themselves and their teams without having to ask the IT administrator to expose saved searches to the entire organization. Users can find tasks that match a combination of business and process data and save the search for later use. Team leaders can define role-based, saved searches so that they are only exposed to specific teams.

    Business users who need to access other systems to complete a task can now launch external activities directly from the process portal without logging into the other systems and navigate to the required user interface.

  • Case, as standard

    All case, structured and hybrid process standards patterns are now supported in Process Designer as standard. Authors do not need to decide whether to build either a Case or Business Process definition because these are now converged into a single, BPMN process model. This provides the best of both worlds in a single tool. A new, web- based editor enables developers to model, validate, and playback their cases. Knowledge workers can now monitor, measure, and report on case metrics. Any CMIS-compatible content repository can now be used to manage the client's documents for all cases and business processes consistently.

  • Operating environment

    This release includes essential operating environment updates to enable the client's IT operations to keep their IBM BPM infrastructure current.
