A Developer's BPM Oktoberfest


Software AG has launched the webMethods 9.5 platform at its annual Innovation World user's conference in San Francisco. This version features capabilities of possible interest to developers working to automate business process management (BPM) functions and scale their application implementations into private and public clouds.

Data-centric programmers may also have their interest piqued by the webMethods BPMS (where the S stands for Social) solution, which now provides guidance tools to help users be more effective and efficient in managing and completing tasks. With Social BPM, tasks can be tagged to facilitate the identification of expertise resources so that work can be routed to the best expert available.

"Disruptive trends such as cloud, mobile, and social continue to drive organizations' expectations for interacting with projects and applications," said Wolfram Jost, CTO at Software AG. "By extending the mobile, cloud, and alignment capabilities of our solutions, we greatly improve how quickly and effectively customers can respond to their market needs."

In the area of mobile BPM, developers now have control to give users tools that will remotely monitor "in-progress processes" using a pre-built mobile business process monitoring application that is available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play.

NOTE: Aggregated views of process instances give instant insight into stalled or failed processes.

Also here we find enhancements to the webMethods Suite including updates to the Model-to-Execute functionality and methodology, which automates the alignment of business process analysis with automated system- and task-based business processes.

With stage and milestone support, process owners can now get high-level visibility into their process status and separate the signal from the noise. With this visibility they can quickly understand whether SLAs have been reached or breached across the key milestones that constitute their business process.
