This presentation will cover our latest incubation under the name BPM Zero to look at how to do BPM as a Service. One reason for doing this is to make it simpler for customers to get into BPM without a huge investment. Key enabling technologies that made this possible is RESTful SOA and Cloud computing.
In this talk, we will show you how to author collaborative business processes using a Web-based BPMN editor. New business processes can be composed from existing assets such as feeds, emails, chats, repository, forms, back-end services, business rules, databases, and can be up and running in minutes. Behind the scenes is a light weight workflow engine that can be used to mash together both web and people centric interactions.
To build a true BPM as a Service ecosystem that leverages the web and provides value to business and IT, many services must be made available through REST. Catalogs become critical in registering and discovering these assets. We will show you an example on how BPM Zero discovers new REST services via the IBM Mashup Center.
