IBM Services Assets for WebSphere Software are extensions to the IBM product portfolio, built by IBM Software Services for WebSphere. Based on real-world client engagements and requirements, these assets enhance the user experience working with WebSphere products by providing patterns, utilities, best practices, automation, and integration artifacts to improve the quality and delivery of your projects
IBM Services Assets are continually developed and enhanced through an agile process based on feedback from clients and consultants.

Either way, IBM Software Services for WebSphere can help you quickly optimize each asset with services that are tailored to your requirements.
Typical services provided with IBM Services Assets include:

IBM Business Process Manager Testing Asset
The IBM Business Process Manager Testing Asset provides a lightweight automation tool, specifically designed for IBM Business Process Manager, that includes built-in testing commands to simplify testing and improve the quality of your Business Process Manager application.
The Dynamic Forms (DYNF) services asset uses IBM Operational Decision Manager to define forms and change their status with rules. It also provides a default web application to render forms and interacts with IBM Operational Decision Manager. Dynamic Forms enables business users to manage forms on their own with minimal IT support, brings agility to forms, and enables a system to adapt quickly to changing business needs.
Enterprise Exception Handler
The Enterprise Exception Handling (EEH) pattern provides a standardized method of reporting exceptions in the organization through the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) that may be analyzed in the future. Most application and system exceptions are reported in an inconsistent manner and often reported in logs that are distributed across every node in the subsystem. The pattern addresses this concern by standardization and centralization of system-wide exceptions in a heterogeneous environment.
