Using IBM WebSphere V7 Products for Business Process ManagementSoftware Development
DescriptionWhat we offer
This 3-day instructor-led course introduces students to IBM's robust family of business process management (BPM) tools and products: WebSphere Business Compass, WebSphere Business Modeler, WebSphere Integration Developer, WebSphere Process Server, WebSphere Business Services Fabric, and WebSphere Business Monitor.
Business process management helps businesses define and implement strategic business goals, and then measure their financial and operational performance against these goals. By using the BPM products and a service-oriented architecture (SOA), an organization can gain powerful results from BPM life cycle activities.
Through lectures and hands-on exercises, students learn how the WebSphere BPM products enable organizations to obtain business information faster, respond more quickly to market trends and competitive threats, and improve operational efficiencies and business results. The course uses a case study approach that allows students to explore BPM solutions that address authentic problems. Topics include designing business processes and team collaboration using WebSphere Business Compass, modeling and analyzing business processes using simulation capabilities in WebSphere Business Modeler, assembling solutions with WebSphere Integration Developer, simulating dynamic assembly of business services using WebSphere Business Services Fabric, managing business processes with WebSphere Business Monitor, and enabling an SOA with WebSphere Process Server.
The course also briefly introduces the WebSphere Industry Content Packs and other products complementary to BPM including WebSphere Business Events, WebSphere ILOG JRules, Cognos reporting tools, WebSphere Service Repository and Registry, and BPM Blueworks.
