AudienceWho should attend

  • A Workflow System Administrator is responsible for day-to-day operations of a production IBM Case Foundation workflow application.
  • A Workflow System Administrator is typically required to help workflow participants to do the following tasks:
    • Locate work and complete workflows.
    • Respond to management decisions that require changes to work items.
    • Gather information about workflow activity to help management make business decisions.
  • During the production phase, the Workflow System Administrator manages operation of the workflow application and communicates with users and managers. In the workflow application deployment phase, the Workflow System Administrator coordinates activities with the Workflow Author to plan and control workflow application implementation into the production environment.
