The Process Center is a run time where Process Designer and Integration Designer share assets, in effect letting them develop business processes cooperatively in a highly interactive manner. These business processes can use monitoring points created with the Business Monitor development toolkit. The result is a business process that can be examined at runtime for effectiveness under real working conditions. Business Monitor provides a dashboard view with gauges and scorecards. You can add alerts and notifications that let you know from moment to moment how the business process is doing. Bottlenecks, inefficiencies, and errors in resource allocation in a running business process can be spotted and corrected resulting in improving the performance of your business processes.
In the diagram that follows, you see several related components that together let you build complex business processes.
- From the Process Center console, you can create process applications and toolkits and grant other users access to those process applications and toolkits.
- In the authoring environments, you can create process models, services, and other assets within process applications.
- The Process Center includes a Process Center server and performance data warehouse, allowing users working in the authoring environments to run processes and store performance data for testing and playback purposes.
- From the Process Center console, administrators install process applications that are ready for testing or production on the process servers in those environments.
- From the Process Center console, administrators manage running instances of process applications in configured environments.
Those users with appropriate authorization can perform some administrative tasks directly in Process Designer and Integration Designer. For example, a developer with write access to the process application who wants to capture the state of all project assets at a particular milestone can create a snapshot while working in the Designer view.
Note: Installation of a Process Center is not supported on a z/OS system, but you can customize the system to connect to a Process Center repository that is installed and configured on Linux, UNIX, or Windows.
