Overview

Top rule

IBM® Business Automation Workflow V18.0 combines IBM Business Process Manager (IBM BPM) and IBM Case Manager into one workflow offering. It unites information, process, and users to provide a 360-degree view of work. In addition to process management and case management, workflow uses advanced analytics, business rules, and collaboration to drive more successful, optimized business outcomes.

Business Automation Workflow provides:

  • Tools that simplify designing and deploying business solutions
  • A ready-to-use interface for user that is flexible and customizable and can be extended to create role-based client experiences
  • An active-content infrastructure that manages the persisted case object model and enables content-based events for case activities
  • A common environment for straight-through processing, human, and case-oriented workflows
  • Rich analytics that provide several methods to track and measure workflow business performance
  • Methods to help users to gather the right content, apply analytics for more accurate decisions, and take necessary actions to assure better business outcomes
  • Ability to identify and incorporate both structured and unstructured content into workflows, regardless of where that content lives either on premises, in the cloud, or in the field with mobile devices

A new ordering option for Business Automation Workflow now includes non-production trade-up part numbers.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
