When developing processes you can take full advantage of the iterative approach supported by the tools within the Process Designer. Processes evolve over time, initially from a development state, to testing, and then on to production. Even in production, your processes might continue to evolve due to changing needs. Being prepared for the ongoing life cycle of your processes is important and will help you design effectively from the outset.
A typical Business Process Manager configuration includes three environments to support the development and eventual deployment of your processes.
To ensure the process applications that you implement and deploy meet the quality standards of your organization, consider defining a release and installment strategy. When you have identified the goals and requirements for release and installment of new and updated process applications, you can automate the processes required to approve and launch the programs.
For example, you might want to route a process to several different managers across different reporting structures in your organization. Only after each manager signs off on the new or updated process can it be deployed in your production environment and rolled out to end users. You can create and implement the steps involved in such a review in Business Process Manager to ensure that all corporate guidelines have been satisfied and that you have the required signatures. The final step in the review might be notification to the IT team that the approved process application is ready for deployment.
