Participate to your business processes from your iPad

BPM is a discipline that leverages software and services to provide total visibility into your organization. Discover, document, automate, and continuously improve business processes to increase efficiency and reduce costs.

If you are new to the field, have a look at the “BPM for Dummies” mini ebook.

IBM offers a comprehensive set of solutions to document, execute, monitor your business processes :

  • BlueWorks Live, an easy way to document and run processes in the cloud
  • IBM Business Monitor, unites information, process, and people to provide a 360-degree view of case information and achieve optimized outcomes
  • IBM Business Process Manager, a comprehensive BPM platform giving you visibility and insight to manage business processes.
  • IBM Operational Decision Management, provides the power to intelligently automate a wide range of decisions across business processes and applications (formerly iLog)

IBM recently released IBM BPM v8.0 with many new, redesigned or improved capabilities, one of them kept my attention.  There is an iOS application allowing users to collaborate on BPM, right from their mobile devices.

“The BPM app provides a single view that consolidates tasks from multiple IBM process sources. Built with ease of use and collaboration in mind, it allows users to interact with others to ensure that the right people are working on the right thing at the right time.”

The application is freely available on the Apple App Store (but requires a BPM backend)

An easy way to evaluate Oracle SOA / BPM offering

One of the big pain when willing to evaluate the SOA or BPM offering from Oracle is the installation process.  These are not simple toys to play with, they require some hundreds of Mb to download and some patience to carefully install all components and their dependencies.

Unless you have a good tutorial or book at hands, the result is likely to fail, believe me.  I’ve been there, I’ve done that.

The good news, is that we are helping you out by providing Virtual Machines images, ready to run and pre-installed with all the software you will need : the database, the application server, the SOA suite with BPM and BAM.

Patience is only required during the 6Gb download now.

Be sure to have the latest version of Virtual Box installed on your machine and a few Gbs (2-3 at least) available for the virtual machine.

Enjoy !
