IBM Business Process Manager (IBM BPM) V8.5.5 is a comprehensive platform that offers enhanced visibility and management of your business processes. It includes tooling and runtime for process design and execution, along with capabilities for monitoring and optimizing work executed within the platform. It is specifically designed to enable process owners and business users to engage directly in the improvement of their business processes. This collaboration between business and IT enables superior time to value and improved user productivity as compared to traditional methods of development.
A highly integrated environment that scales smoothly and easily from initial project to enterprise-wide program, IBM BPM V8.5.5 is designed for easy deployment and ready to use immediately or as an easily customizable configuration.
IBM BPM V8.5.5 offers basic case management as a built-in feature of IBM BPM Advanced. IBM BPM Advanced V8.5.5 embeds basic case management capabilities that are derived from IBM Case Manager technology. These capabilities allow you to exploit your existing IBM BPM investments and skills, and simplify the implementation and management of process-oriented solutions that require basic case handling. IBM BPM Advanced continues to support other process-oriented work patterns, including straight-through processing and user-oriented workflow. The basic case management feature is enabled by ordering a separate license. Refer to the Ordering information section.
IBM BPM Advanced V8.5.5 includes an embedded content repository that is restricted to support the basic case management documents and folders. The restricted use content repository can be extended to support unlimited content management use cases with IBM ECM.
Also in IBM BPM V8.5.5, mobile-optimized UIs can now be created with new WYSIWYG tooling that enables the design of responsive Process Coaches. These coach UIs are targeted for multiple mobile device form factors: small (phone), medium (tablet) and large (desktop). User interactions on mobile devices can also be optimized by taking advantage of new client-side services that are downloaded and cached on the device.
Business Monitor V8.5.5
Business Monitor V8.5.5 delivers comprehensive, operational intelligence capabilities that offer business users and managers visibility into real-time, end-to-end business operations, transactions, and processes to help increase revenue, lower costs, and improve service.
