WebSphere Dynamic Process Edition integration through Business Space

Empowering business users through Business Space powered by WebSphere

Business Space powered by WebSphere enables business users to create an integrated and customized user experience so that they can access contextualized process information in a secure role-based environment. Users can create their own spaces, or a collection of pages that comprise a business process, application, or collaborative end-user experience within Web-based tooling. Business Space also provides a collection of templates, which are prebuilt user experiences that can be customized or used to rapidly create a new process experience. Users can choose to mark their spaces as private or share their spaces with potential viewers or contributors in order to make smarter decisions and take action more quickly.

Business users can collaborate with their colleagues and subject matter experts within Business Space. Business Space can also help IT developers to achieve faster time to value when developing their BPM end-user experiences, through better reuse of out-of-the-box product content and simplified user interface assembly tooling. By providing a consolidated view of business process content and enabling contextual collaboration in one location, Business Space helps business users to manage their processes more effectively, make smarter decisions, and take action more quickly.

Business Space ships as a common business user interface component with the following runtime products: WebSphere Business Monitor, WebSphere Process Server, WebSphere Business Services Fabric, and WebSphere Business Modeler Publishing Server. Users of WebSphere Integration Developer can create business space content from within their test environments. Users of WebSphere Business Modeler can interact with process models in the Business Space as part of deploying those models to a managed test environment. Finally, Business Space also complements the out-of-the box administrative client that ships with WebSphere Process Server (BPC Explorer) that is used by IT administrators.

With each purchased and deployed BPM product, you receive additional Business Space content that surfaces the capabilities of that product. To provide a richer BPM portfolio experience, this content has been integrated to take advantage of suite capabilities. In addition, you can create and integrate your own custom content within the Business Space alongside BPM product content for accessing your internal systems and application content.

WebSphere Business Modeler V6.2 and Business Space powered by WebSphere

Helps business users create validated solutions prior to deployment in WebSphere Process Server by using the collaborative capabilities of Business Space:

  • Provides an easy method to configure a managed test environment to validate process models, step through running processes, and perform end-user interactions
  • Enables direct launch of a managed test environment in Business Space from within WebSphere Business Modeler

WebSphere Business Modeler Publishing Server V6.2 and Business Space powered by WebSphere

  • Publishing Server capabilities can be combined with other BPM content to create a unified end-user experience in Business Space powered by WebSphere
  • Enables commenting and reviewing capability on items within Business Space

Further WebSphere Dynamic Process Edition integration

Overview of process content available in Business Space

  • Users of WebSphere Business Monitor can view key performance indicator (KPI) information, notifications, alerts, and historical analyses within the Business Space.
  • Users of WebSphere Process Server can work with human tasks, business rules, govern changes to business artifacts, and work with business calendars. Additionally, WebSphere Process Server provides content for the IT administrator to assess the health of their BPM systems and applications, as well as ensure smooth operation.
  • Users who have deployed on WebSphere Business Services Fabric can easily create new processes or immediately change existing processes - without IT involvement - by modifying business service policy attributes linked to these processes from within Business Space. Examples of these attributes include a new role, channel, region, or a broad corporate policy.
  • Users of WebSphere Business Modeler Publishing Server can share and collaborate on process models, dashboard designs, and user interaction forms within Business Space.

Example of a process scenario using Business Space as part of WebSphere Dynamic Process Edition

When a client has these products deployed, a business user can combine process content from across the WebSphere Dynamic Process Edition and other BPM products from WebSphere to manage their processes in a holistic manner. For example, a manager could receive an alert in Business Space that a KPI has exceeded its threshold. This user can then create a task and assign it to one of his staff. The staff member would claim that task in his own Business Space environment, complete the work by changing a business rule, and then send a notification back to the manager informing him that the KPI is now back on track. The manager might then notify the company's executive team that the KPI target threshold has been reached and suggest that the business rule change across the entire corporation. Should the executive team agree, they would assign an individual to change a business service policy in their systems, and all business rules across the corporation that subscribe to the policy would immediately be updated.

Limited warranty applies

Yes

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program and (2) for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.
