The Business Process Accelerator (BPA) is a new IBM offering which combines the power and flexibility of IBM WebSphere Portal with the intuitive, secure interface of IBM Lotus Forms in order to accelerate the automation of end-to-end business processes. Used in conjunction with IBM’s industry-leading Business Process Management (BPM) offerings, the Business Process Accelerator can improve process efficiency, increase corporate agility and reduce the time-to-value on BPM initiatives.
This session provides a rich technical deep dive featuring tools now available to ease integration between the WebSphere Portal, BPM solutions, and Lotus Forms. It will discuss integration points, leveraging XML, and connectivity to different process engines or content sources.
The combination of Portal, Process Server and Forms is a commonly demanded deployment pattern. Until recently, deploying these technologies together could be a challenging and involved process. With the new Business Process Accelerator Framework (recently released to the Portal Solutions Catalog) this has changed. With this new set of assets, using Forms and Portal to provide a user interface to BPM human tasks is a simple matter of installation and configuration. This talk discuses this new framework and illustrates its use.
