- BPM Voices: Don't forget the basics of software design
when architecting BPM solutions
Columnists Scott Simmons and Dave Wakeman discuss the importance of architectural rigor for all BPM applications. Many business users do not understand the underlying complexities associated with application runtimes and IT needs to ensure the applications are optimized. In short, just because BPM appears to be "simple" - organizations still need a sound architecture to ensure robust applications. Scott and Dave explain key architectural aspects that are critical to build an optimized BPM application.
- Smarter healthcare: Integrating mobile
technologies and decision management
Integrating disparate systems to provide timely information at the point of care is a critical aspect of improving patient care in today's healthcare environment. Using the right combination of technologies for integration, mobile applications, and operational intelligence can unlock the potential held within the voluminous information that flows between systems today, ultimately improving quality of care and even patient outcomes. This article shows how the combination of IBM Integration Bus, IBM Operational Decision Manager, and mobile applications built with IBM Worklight can work together to achieve these goals.
- Best practices for designing and implementing
decision services, Part 3: Integrating IBM
Business Process Manager and IBM Operational
Decision Manager RESTful protocol
Decision service is quite a buzz term, you even see product features with such a name. As a solution architect or developer, you may have seen the need to go outside of pure product play, and think about designing and implementing such services so they can be easily maintained and consumed. This article addresses design and implementation best practices for a decision service using IBM BPM V7.5 Advanced Edition and WebSphere Operational Decision Server. Part 3 of this 3-part series presents key points to consider during the design of a rule-based decision service, so that it follows best practices and fits properly in a large IT architecture.
- Using IBM Operational Decision Manager DVS
simulation features for risk scoring analysis use
By extending IBM ODM Decision Validation Service features, you can produce KPI-based simulation on large datasets so that risk scoring analysis can be conducted by business users. The design and implementation considerations presented in this article are mainly based on IBM ODM V8.5, but they can apply to older product versions such as WebSphere ILOG JRules V7.5 and V8.
- The placement of BPM runtime components in an
The various runtime components within a BPM solution have a subtle relationship with the SOA reference architecture. This article looks at how these components relate to the SOA layers in practice. With strict SOA reference architecture layers as a starting point, it is reasonable for a component to appear in more than one layer, depending on the role it is playing. This helps make sense of the dual role that the BPM component plays, and to move on to the more subtle aspect of how the interactions really work.
