Five Things to Know About Systematically Deploying IBM Business Process Manager

From IBM developerWorks: -

Want to get a leg up on deploying the new IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Version 8.5?  A recent IBM Redbooks publication describes the latest features of this popular BPM software and includes step-by-step tips to help ensure your set-up goes smoothly.

IBM BPM provides a common software platform for business process improvement and lifecycle governance. Built-in analytics and search capabilities enable individuals throughout an enterprise to contribute to improving and optimizing critical processes, quickly and collaboratively.


BPM V8.5 includes several new capabilities and improvements compared to earlier versions:

  • Changes in security, with fewer default system users and a new ability to alter the security configuration using the wsadamin tool instead of XML files

  • Improved web services, including a new type of server configuration that allows web service endpoint connection details to be defined separately for each environment
  • Simplified installation and configuration, featuring consolidated deployment patterns and clustering topologies

Speaking of installation and configuration, the new IBM Rebooks publication, Business Process Management Deployment Guide: Using IBM Business Process Manager V8.5, describes an approach with step-by-step instructions for building a new IBM BPM environment successfully.

And, of course, remember that my team, IBM Software Services for WebSphere (ISSW), can certainly help with this work.
