Using Visual Process Manager, developers can now create complex business processes directly on the Force.com platform using a simple point-and-click approach. Looking to extend the capabilities of Visual Process Manager? Developers can now also create their own flow steps by implementing new flow features in Force.com code (Apex). Then you can package and distribute your flows and Force.com extensions on the AppExchange. What does this mean? Visual Process Manager gives you new tools to build a business on the Force.com platform. Join us, and we'll show you how!

  • Hi and welcome to dreamforce 2010. Wow this thing become bigger and bigger every year!Anyway, my name is Rajaram and I am a product manager here at salesforce.com.I am really excited to be here and show you and demo you one of the most important enhancement in the platform this year – and that is in the area of process automation – tools available to help automate critical processes and build apps around processes.
  • Any purchase decisions customer make should be made based on currently available technology.
  • Please take a moment to read this flow..Seems simple and common-Let me ask you this?How many of you think this is possible?How do you think you can achieve this?How long do you think this would take?
  • Lets take another example…Seems extremely simple..Well, this one is straight from the VF help and guess what, to implement this you need3 pages, 1 custom controller even a bit of javascriptThe number of lines of code you need to write is close to 300!If you have to make a simple change to this – may be split the account and contact in its own page – you need to write additional code,If you want to search for existing accounts based on the info and then provide the option for the user to confirm – you need to write a lot of additional codeWhat if I tell youYou can do this without writing any code and that you can get this going a day or so.Seems improbable but, this is possible with the platform now..
  • Before the was workflow rules and approval processes. These are critical but not sufficient tools to enforce processes or create process centric applications.Workflow rules provided the ability to capture business events and take actions.Approvals gave you the ability to build one of the most common processes which can be automated – approvals.Well not any more, we now have Flow which provides you the ability to create page flows and dynamic forms, rule flows where you can take actions as well as integrate with other systems.All done by using a drag and drop designer and without writing any code..How many people have heard of Visual Process Manager?How many people have heard of Flow?To give some background.. VPM was the product based on our acquisition of a company from Wales England called Informavores. Flow is the name of the technology integrated in the platform. So, Flow is essentially VPM on the salesforce stack.
